Franchise Information Request Form
Travail offers a business to business sales recruitment opportunity, operating in a sustainable and robust marketplace.
Travail Employment Group was established in 1977. In 1985, having opened 3 additional branches of our own, we embarked upon a programme of expansion through franchising to develop a national network of professionally run offices.

travailTravail Employment Group has 27 branches, of which 16 are franchised operated by 9 franchisees. As new recruits join, current franchisees open additional branches and we ourselves expand, further growth is expected.

Our business is to provide quality, cost effective temporary and permanent staff recruitment services. As a multi-disciplined agency we specialise in recruiting for almost every sector in the marketplace. Travail offer clients the highest standard of service with the emphasis on professionalism at all times. The Travail name and reputation are synonymous with excellence.

The UK Recruitment Market
The UK recruitment industry currently enjoys a turnover in excess of £23 billion annually, making it one of the most buoyant sectors of the economy.

Why a Travail Franchise?
Today, Travail Employment Group is one of the largest privately owned and most respected recruitment companies in the UK. In a competitive business world, the Travail Employment Group continues to flourish - a fact that speaks as much for the attractive economics of operating a Travail recruitment franchise business as it does for the market forces, which continue to promote our industry's growth.

The Investment
The initial franchise fee for exclusive rights to a territory is £12,000 and includes approximately £1,500 worth of stationery and marketing materials.

In addition you would need a minimum of £15,000 working capital and support from a bank. Small Firms Loan Guarantee Scheme (SFLG) will provide 75% of the security to the bank on acceptance by them of the application. The decision to approve the application is a commercial decision taken by the lender as they are taking the risk on the remaining 25% of the loan.

travailWhat makes an ideal Travail franchisee?
We are totally committed to the successful growth of our franchise network. Your success and prosperity is ours also.

Whilst you need to be sure we are the right business partners for you, we too must be confident you will complement our franchise network. Formal qualifications or previous recruitment experience are by no means essential. Travail is looking for people with personal motivation, common sense, enthusiasm and commitment - people who want to succeed.

Travail Employment Group looks forward to discussing our proposed franchise opportunity further with you.
