At Morgan Harvey we believe that reliability,
credibility and honesty are the key main factors to
success. We require all of our franchisees to ensure
that they follow in the high standards already set.
Many times you will see a job advertised whether it is
in a newspaper or on the internet that you really like
the sound of, but then you read that it requires
something that you donít have. Maybe a degree or some
experience in a particular industry. With recruitment,
we really can train anyone to do it. The only attributes
you will definitely need is the desire to work hard.
Yes, Sales experience is advantageous but to grow your
business, it is all about speaking with people, both
candidates and clients.
Our current Franchisees and soon to be new Franchisees
come from a varied background. Whether you are a young
go getter with ambitions of making your fortune in
recruitment ( believe me there are many that have ) or a
housewife/Househusband looking to work from your kitchen
table, then the opportunity is here.
Your enquiry is very important to us and will be handled
with the utmost care and attention. If at any point we
do not feel that the opportunity is right for you, then
we will be open and honest with you. If however, there
is a perfect match, then we will be with you every step
of the way to ensure that your first step into your own
business is a successful one.
