Thinking of becoming a Business Mentor?

Become a mentor

We’re looking for experienced professionals to join our growing network of business mentors.

Could Business Mentoring be right for you?

Can you answer yes to these questions?
  1. Do you have many years all-round experience in a commercial environment with experience in Leadership/People management/Financial understanding?
  2. Have you been thinking of doing something for yourself rather than just as an employee of someone else?
  3. Do you genuinely enjoy and get satisfaction from helping others to grow and develop?
  4. Do you believe that helping business owners could be your Ikigai?

Why should I consider joining UK Business Mentoring as a Franchisee?

UK Business Mentoring is rated number one in the UK out of over four hundred business coaching firms, based purely on client feedback.

We have proven models and systems that new franchisees can follow to fully support their clients.

You will have access to all materials for example our three-hour business growth seminar, a complete programme of webinars covering a host of business topics, our ‘Your Business Model’ and two-day Leadership and Management training courses etc.

You will be given first-class training, field coaching and ongoing support from a ‘Buddy Mentor’ for as long as you want it. You will be part of a fast-growing dynamic team.

You will be part of a team that genuinely cares about its clients and our team of Franchisees.

One of our new franchisees said at the end of 2020 “It feels more like I have joined a club of like-minded entrepreneurs than a franchise”

How do I join and what is the process?

  1. Simply use the contact form to register your interest and we will be in touch for an initial discussion over the phone.
  2. If this generates interest in you we will arrange a meeting with you and our Managing Director so you can ask further questions and get to know what we’re about.
  3. After this, you will have the opportunity to chat with other franchisees to discuss their journey and ask any questions. We also invite you to attend one or more of our events so you can see how we work.
  4. Once you’ve confirmed you want to go ahead, both parties would sign a franchise agreement (after independent legal advice) and we would proceed to train.

What does the initial training consist of?

Initially, a four-day residential training course, which would be one block of three days followed by the fourth day a few weeks later.

  • Explanation of the company, our values, pledge to clients and ‘no contract’ approach
