Just 13 Months Trading a Match Options Franchisee Reaches £1 Million Turnover
Marshal Konzvo decided to start his own healthcare recruitment franchise back in January 2017. After just 13 months the Cambridge-based franchisee has broke the £1 million turnover barrier and is celebrating a remarkable year as his business continues to grow month-on-month.
Konzvo previously worked in IT before making the leap into franchising using his savings to finance the new business, and the help of Match Options head-office to embark upon his new journey.
Having had an idea of wanting to move into recruitment, Konzvo liked the idea of franchising. A franchise is a lower risk option than venturing on your own and you have the support of a successful business behind you. After doing some research Match Options stood out as the best investment for Konzvo.
Demand for qualified doctors and nurses has never been so high, both in the NHS and the private sector. To add to this, there is an increase in the ageing population putting a huge strain on the UK health sector; Konzvo could see this was a perfect time to get into the healthcare recruitment - as the healthcare industry needs help!
“I put in a lot of research before I bought my franchise, and Match Options instantly appealed. It was also at the start of its franchising journey, so I thought I would be able to grow alongside them. Their hunger and desire to make this work stood out a mile, and all the directors have been very accessible and helpful. I chose a franchise as it is obviously less risk and a lot of the groundwork has already been done for you, so you have far less headaches than going it alone. Franchising is a system that is proved to work".
“So far things are going very well, even better than I expected. To achieve £1 million turnover after 13 months in business is amazing, and testament to all my hard work but also the Match Options brand. It really does set you up to succeed. The training went well and the support I receive is fantastic, the directors really know their stuff and I can call on this knowledge whenever I need it".
Match options is a recruitment healthcare agency that places practitioners on a temporary and permanent basis. Not only placing doctors and nurses but also healthcare assistants, care support workers, and domiciliary care workers. Match options also places health workers in the likes of schools and prisons, meaning the market potential is huge.
Match Options has been successfully operating in the care sector since 1999 providing high quality services to the local communities it works in; there are currently seven company-owned branches and four franchisees throughout the UK. With the huge market potential on offer the company is now seeking additional franchisees who are committed and passionate about growing the business throughout the UK.
Michael Celestine, Operations director, Match Options explains: “There has never been a better time to consider starting a healthcare recruitment business. There is an acute shortage of qualified health staff across the board in the UK, so organisations need help finding quality staff. The care sector is also one of the fastest growing markets in the UK, and this trend can only continue. There will be an extra five million people over 65 in the next 20 years. This is huge challenge whether they are being cared for at home or in a hospital or care home environment.”
