Aberdeen’s Budding Entrepreneurs Needed
Mr Electric has teamed up with its suppliers and bankers to offer unemployed entrepreneurs the opportunity of owning its Aberdeen franchise.
Mr Electric franchise owners provide a 24/7 electrician service, so this opportunity would particularly suit unemployed electricians who want to become their own boss, but benefit from the back-up and support of an established brand.
The franchise package comes with Homeserve operating rights for the next five years that will provide a base load of work on which to build on. Lloyds Banking Group is committed to providing both an initial working capital facility as well as ongoing mentoring advice.
Agreements have been reached with Mr Electric suppliers to assist in every way they can and the NICEIC with who Mr Electric has a special relationship has agreed a package of help and assistance in ensuring the business meets today’s exacting standards.
Prospective applicants will be required to prepare an outline business plan and should be able to demonstrate a fundamental understanding of the commitment to customer service, as well as business responsibilities.
The successful applicant will be selected by a judging panel which will include Richard Holden of Lloyds Banking Group, Brian Smart, Director General of the British Franchise Association (bfa), a representative of Mr Electric as well as one other yet to be confirmed.
The company aims to have business plans reviewed before the end of June so that the successful candidate can attend July training.
