UK Business Mentoring launches recruitment drive

UK Business Mentoring (UKBM), the UK’s leading independent business development mentoring company, has launched an ambitious national expansion plan.

UKBM is seeking associates across the country as it develops a network of senior mentors to offer business advice and coaching support to the owners and directors of enterprises with significant growth potential.

Recent recruits have joined the company with experience across the banking and financial services sector, but the UKBM Associates Programme is also open to applications from candidates with senior-level experience across all sectors.

The UKBM Associates Programme is a fee-based franchise opportunity reserved for qualifying senior business people. People interested in applying for a position should email

UKBM typically supports owner-managed businesses with turnover of between £1m and £25m seeking significant growth. It provides strategic assistance and practical support to owners/directors in achieving growth goals.

Services offered by UKBM include business reviews, strategic planning, mentoring and coaching.

Clients are offered a fee-free initial consultation to discuss specific issues that business owners may need help with; strategic aims; and challenges. UKBM does not have a minimum ‘tie in’ contract period for clients and pledges ‘If we don’t add value we don’t expect customers to pay’.

Headquartered in Walton-on-the-Hill, Surrey, UKBM was founded by Managing Director Joe Hinton in 2009 to offer mentoring, training and strategic guidance to business owners. UKBM was shortlisted in the Business Change or Transformation category at UK Business Awards 2017.

Mr Hinton, pictured, said: “We are seeking driven, motivated people with a passion for helping others achieve their goals. The key requirements are that they have a good commercial background, relationship management skills and experience in managing people. It is also important that they are excellent communicators. I’d love to hear from people who are interested in joining UKBM.”

Paul Clarke, a former senior bank director who supported thousands of growing businesses during a 30-year banking career, is the most recent recruit to join UKBM as a director, with a focus on the supporting businesses and growing the number of associates in the North West of England.

He added: “Since joining UKBM, I’ve been able to utilise my skills and experience in the business world to support a number of directors and business owners. The people I work with are hugely impressed with the UKBM approach and I would anyone who feels that they have relevant experience to get in touch.”
