Care at Home Company launches Midlands franchisee recruitment drive

L-R: Gill Heppell and PerCurra Newark & Grantham franchisee Andrew White

PerCurra, the national care at home franchise, has announced the launch of a recruitment drive to attract new franchisees, with a particular focus on its territories across the Midlands.

Headquartered in Nottingham, PerCurra’s success in the sector has enabled the creation of a proven franchise model and the company is now keen to attract talented people into its network of franchisees.

Gill Heppell, PerCurra’s Founder and Managing Director comments: “Having developed a very successful care at home business, reaching over £1 million in turnover and employing 70 people within three years, I made the decision to franchise the business in 2016. We have replicated our highly regarded model of care delivery which will enable people to launch a viable, profitable business in the provision of care services.  We are actively seeking people from across the Midlands who would like to be part of our successful, well established franchisee programme.”

PerCurra’s franchisee offering is particularly suited to those who may be embarking on the second stage of the careers, having taken early retirement or having been made redundant. Such people can make excellent franchise owners, building on their significant experience within their previous careers and suits those who are potentially keen to fit work around family life.

People with previous experience within the health and social care sector are also welcomed by PerCurra, particularly former, or current, care managers who may be looking for a new challenge.

Regardless of their previous experience, whether in business, health and social care, private or public sector, all PerCurra franchisees will benefit from a six-month tailored training programme which covers marketing, staff recruitment and client acquisition as well as business development support. Support systems such as IT infrastructure are provided so that a PerCurra franchisee does not even require an office and the business can be run from home.  This and further support ensures franchisees can create thriving businesses delivering an excellent range of home care services.

Gill adds: “In the UK there has been a huge and continuing growth in the demand for at home care services. This strong demand, coupled with the extensive support we provide for our new franchisees in helping them to  establish a reliable, profitable franchise based on our proven system, is something we think will be popular with people looking to invest in a business.”

“The start-up costs and overheads involved in setting up a PerCurra franchise are small when compared to starting a business from scratch but importantly we believe that this franchise opportunity will appeal to those who share our ethos of wanting to deliver excellent standards of care and improve the lives of others.”
