Select Appointments continues UK franchise expansion
Select Appointments, an office staff recruitment franchise, has recruited its latest franchisee to own and operate its Swindon office. Becky Harker has spent eight years working through the ranks from Consultant to Business Manager of Select's Swindon office, before she was offered the opportunity to acquire the franchise and jumped at the chance.
Becky says: 'I had managed the team in Swindon for many years and knew the industry and market place well. This has been the best decision I have ever made. The whole ownership, responsibility and knowing I can make it happen is a challenge and one I am enjoying everyday.'
During her eight years of working for Select Appointments Becky has receive numerous awards for her hard work including the Chief Executive's Special Award for Excellence, as well as the Most Improved Office Award. She has also coached and managed the Top Temporaries Consultant of the year.
While Becky had a progressive career in recruitment she admits that she is still learning about running her own business and this is where she calls on the expertise and infrastructure of Select as an established franchisor. Prompt answers to a range of operational questions, day-to-day training and development support, together with financial and property advice have all been invaluable resources.
