We are the UK’s only recruitment company dedicated to the franchise sector. This means we have the industry knowledge and contacts that enable us to find you the person you are looking for quickly and cost-effectively. From junior staff to managers and directors, we are the easiest way to strengthen your team. Candidates in senior positions often do not advertise the fact that they are looking for a move, but they will speak to us. Before you waste money on advertising and time on interviewing unsuitable candidates, contact us for a shortlist of available candidates.


“The Franchising Centre was able to put forward candidates with the right knowledge, skills and attitude for our vacancy. They were able to advise us on an appropriate salary and what we should include in our package to attract the best candidates. The Franchise Careers Centre had several candidates that they put forward and we have been delighted with the placement of our latest Franchise Development Manager”

“We have over the years employed many people in our business however when it came to looking for someone with the right franchise experience we decided to use The Franchising Centre. We were very impressed with the candidates put forward and went on to employ someone, who is still with us after 3 years. If anyone in the franchise industry is looking for franchise experienced managers or directors, we would not hesitate to recommend using the services of The Franchising Centre.”

“Although we have been in franchising since the 90s and know many people within the industry we decided, when we needed a new manager, to approach Shirley Hughes of The Franchising Centre as we have met her on many occasions through the bfa and know that she is held in high regard by all in the industry. She offered to facilitate our first interview day in a hotel, which she arranged and made sure that all the candidates were ready for the interview. At the end of the day, we sat down with her and discussed all the candidates we had seen and she gave us the feedback she had got from her candidates after their interview. This made it very simple for us to prepare a shortlist for 2nd interview and from there we went on to hire one of the candidates that Shirley had found for us. All in all, it was an enjoyable experience and may not have been without Shirley’s help so we would have no hesitation in recommending FCC to any franchisor.”

“Although new to the world of franchising, we approached Shirley Hughes of The Franchising Centre as we had been told by many people that she was the lady who could help us find the right person we needed in our business. From the start, Shirley was very professional and extremely knowledgeable about franchising and the candidates she has on her books. She even facilitated the day we had our first interviews, making sure that the candidates were well prepared for the interview and communicated back immediately after the interview so that at the end of the day we were all able to sit down and discuss each candidate in full and draw up the list for 2nd interviews. She really helped make the decision to hire someone so easy for us. We would encourage any franchisor, whether just starting out or having traded for a number of years, to put your trust in Shirley and let her do what she is very good at – finding the right person for your business.”
