Business Investment in Swindon is Attracting National Interest


Feb 10, 2017

Amid announcements of a £750k investment from the Gateway for Growth Program to help create jobs in Swindon, and the sale of the yet-to-open Regent Circus leisure and retail development for more than £8m over asking price, Select Appointments, the UK’s leading recruitment franchise business, is keen to add a particularly well timed vacancy of its own to the growing number of opportunities available in the town.
Select Appointments, a leading recruitment franchise business has enjoyed considerable success in Swindon over the last decade. We are therefore very excited that the Select Appointments Franchise for Swindon has become available for sale. This is a perfect time for someone from the area to capitalise on the buoyant local economy and to leverage the brand equity that has been developed by the previous Select Appointments franchisee within Swindon and surrounding areas. 
If you are new to franchising, it may be helpful to know that the franchise industry is thriving right across the country as local people realise the power of partnering with a national brand to open their own businesses. When combined with the economic upturn in recruitment and employment, this unique opportunity could be life changing for the right person.
The Select Appointments success story is predicated on providing high quality recruitment services, under the Select brand but operated by local owners with local knowledge who are passionate about supporting local businesses and communities.
Although this opportunity would appeal to experienced recruitment or HR professionals, the quality of the training programmes and support offered by Select means that people with no prior experience of a particular industry can become successful businesses owners in a relatively short period of time. This is also because the business model and the operating systems have already been proven and replicated across the country. 
Graeme McKinnon, managing director of Select Appointments, comments: “According to a recent research article by Bloomberg 80% of entrepreneurs who start business on their own fail within 18 months. The British Franchising Association (bfa) on the other hand has conducted research across the UK Franchise industry which has found that 92% of Franchisees are profitable within 12 months. This is exactly what is attracting new Franchisees to Select Appointments and this is why this presents a serious opportunity for any ambitious individuals who want to break free from corporate life and reap the rewards they deserve.  Swindon has historically been one of our high performing territories and this is why we want to speak to anyone in the Swindon area who feels they have what it takes to run their own recruitment business here in the town”
