About Match Options
Owning a business that cares for others can help take 'care' of your future.
Who are we?
Match Options is a social and healthcare employment business and recruitment agency, providing care professionals to a range of different bodies in both temporary and permanent roles. This franchise aims to “match the options” between the employment sector and healthcare industry, pairing candidates with clients.
Doctors, nurses and domiciliary care workers are all recruited through Match Options. By providing this service, the franchise can help equip healthcare organisations with desperately needed staff.
Match Options works with the NHS, as well as private healthcare companies, such as BUPA, Four Seasons Healthcare and Priory Healthcare. It also supplies employees for home care services, housing organisations and HM Prison Service.
Training and support provided
When you become a Match Options franchisee, you’ll get the chance to enrol onto an extensive training scheme. This takes place over one week at the head office in Slough, and should give you all the knowledge and tools to be able to run a successful Match Options branch yourself. You’ll be taught about sales, IT systems, interviewing candidates and matching them to appropriate clients. The programme even covers administrative issues, payroll and operational procedures and legalities.
Once you’ve completed this, the Match Options franchise team will help you find the perfect location for your office. Once it’s been set up, they’ll visit you at your site and give you a helping hand as you launch operations and recruit candidates. The franchise also offers guidance when it comes to developing the business and promoting it locally.
Why chose Match Options?
This isn’t all Match Options offers its franchisees. The franchise is dedicated to its franchisees’ success, which is why it provides a number of additional support features. In return for your investment, you’ll get:
- An exclusive territory
- A 10-year licence
- A residential induction course
- Operations manuals
- Branded uniforms and stationery
- Governing body subscriptions
- Ongoing support
The ideal Match Options franchisee
Your role as a franchisee
This franchise role requires a particular set of skills, so Match Options won’t just hire anyone. To make the grade, you must be able to manage and motivate a small team and create valuable relationships with clients. You should also be comfortable interviewing applicants and passionate about maintaining operational standards and developing the business.
Although a successful Match Options office depends on a manager with these skills, you don’t necessarily need industry experience, as the franchise will teach you all you need to know.
In terms of finance, you should be prepared to pay an initial fee of £30,000 and have access to at least £35,000 in working capital. The franchise suggests that the total investment is around £70,000. Half of this sum should be made up of liquid assets, as up to 50 percent of the initial investment cost can be financed by official lenders.
Finally, all franchisees will need to pass an Enhanced DBS check to ensure they’re able to work in the healthcare industry.
Match Options' history
Match Options was founded in 1999. Since then, it has expanded to open 14 regional branches across the UK. These serve Darlington & Middlesbrough, Manchester, Northampton, Cambridge, Cardiff, Bristol, Slough (Head Office), Luton St Albans, Hertford, Greenwich, Norwich, Southend-on-Sea and Bournemouth.
As part of its rapid expansion, Match Options has established partnerships with valuable clients in regions where it does not have a branch. This means there is scope for prospective franchisees to launch profitable businesses in a range of different locations.
Not only does this franchise offer great prospects, it is also part of a thriving industry. Match Options states that staff recruitment is one of the UK’s fastest growing sectors, and its annual revenue has risen from £5 billion to £28 billion in the last 15 years.
