Get Ahead is offering an exciting franchise opportunity to anyone who loves managing a team - and wants to set up their own business. Franchising is a great solution to provide you with flexible working.
It’s rare for new business owners to be able to focus on their management skills, but that’s exactly what Get Ahead franchisees (Regional Directors) do.
Our Get Ahead Regional Directors tend to have come from the corporate world, in roles within departments including HR and Marketing. They have generally decided to move on to find a more flexible career solution that works for them and their lifestyle. Get Ahead provides them with that perfect balance of freedom to run their own business, using their management experience, within a supportive and encouraging team environment.
In a key difference to other franchises, you don’t carry out client work yourself - so your business can grow through your love of people management and without being limited by your capabilities or your time.
Providing a wide range of business support/personal assistant services to a large target audience, Get Ahead is an outsourcing specialist. The company finds clients who want to outsource their admin, social media, digital marketing, book-keeping, PR, telephone answering or require expert marketing strategies - or pretty much anything else - and matches them with the right experts from Get Ahead’s team. With over 50 skilled professionals, Get Ahead can always find the right person for the job - and the company loves nothing more than making a perfect match.
Rebecca Newenham had the business idea for Get Ahead and successfully launched the company in 2010. She still runs it today.
Now a successful business, Get Ahead has grown rapidly through the opening of regional offices across the UK, where it now provides outsourced business support to a 100-plus network of clients at any one time.
The Get Ahead offering has been a huge hit with clients because of the emphasis on providing top quality experts, matched perfectly to their business needs, coupled with simplicity and flexibility.
And the company’s awards shelf shows that it’s good at what it does! Get Ahead is extremely proud to say that it’s won a number of awards over recent years, including a 2021 British Franchise Association Balance Award, 2022 SME News Best Virtual Admin Support Firm , Theo Paphitis ‘Small Business Sunday’ award and an SME News ‘Business Elite’ award.
The franchise is for 5 years and the cost is £8k (finance payment plans are available) and 10% monthly turnover. 1% marketing fee is due monthly after year one.
The earning potential is strong - the more clients you onboard, the greater the turnover.
