We have updated our success story with a new franchise that opened for business on 1st July 2008, which brings the Morgan Harvey Franchise story up to date.
Headed up by Debbie Thrift who currently lives in Canterbury, she had been considering opening her own recruitment agency for the past couple of years, but had never had the opportunity to do so. Debbie finally gathered up the courage to look at her options and after considering the costs, she opted for a Morgan Harvey Franchise. The Morgan Harvey franchise option appealed due to the excellent back office cost of starting up on my own. So what happened next?
The Morgan Harvey training that followed gave Debbie the additional skills to start the wheels in motion, she set about introducing herself and the Morgan Harvey brand to various companies in the Kent area and quickly managed to secure vacancies and subsequent placements.
We are delighted to report in Week 2 Kent made their first placement, followed up with a number of other offers. By month 3 with high priority placed on customer service for both clients and candidates, the Kent area was building well with interviews growing week on week and the placements following.
Kent have now expanded their office space and are planning to take on another member of the team, due to increased cash flow they have started to utilise the Morgan Harvey Telesales team to generate additional business.
To sum it all up Debbie tells us “Hindsight is a wonderful thing, and if I had known what I know now it would have made sense to do this years ago”.
