How will you benefit? 

Our proven business model offers you full support and training, not to mention a wealth of tools and marketing materials, helping you get your business off the ground both quickly and successfully.

Sales training

We understand that many individuals may not be confident with the sales and marketing aspect of running a business. As part of your induction and throughout your 1st year, you will be equipped with comprehensive sales training to get you ready to win business. This training is designed to build your confidence in promoting your services and ease you into the techniques of success selling – but you won’t ever have to cold call! This training is also an essential part of our ongoing support which we provide through our Central Office team and specialist partners.


We provide you with an accountancy package in your 1st year to help setup your own Limited Company. Your accountancy partner is also there to offer guidance and advice on how to set up your business structure, your VAT registration, and business bank account, taking the stress away from you.

Business coach

Starting your own business can be scary and overwhelming, not knowing where to start sometimes. That’s why we provide you with external 1:1 business coaching to help set your own business targets, keep your plans on track and assist you in reaching your goals in the first 6 months of your business.

Health & Safety documents

Access to a broad range of health & safety documents, letters, and guidance for you to adapt and customise for your clients, saving you starting from scratch each time.

Regular content

As well as your own branded bi-monthly newsletter, which you can easily send to your client database, you will receive bi-weekly blogs on current health and safety topics which are published straight to your own website. Let us do the content creation that helps to raise your credibility and profile, so you are free to go out and get new business.

Marketing materials

A broad range of marketing material to help you promote your business and services. You will be provided with our online portal allowing you to download and order bespoke branded merchandise personalised to your business, with everything from business cards and banners to pens and mugs! As well as this, we have a library of graphics and documents for you to personalise and share online.

Holiday cover

Licensees benefit from holiday cover every year, meaning you can get a proper break as a business owner and rest assured that your clients are being well looked after.


When setting up your business with us, you will receive your own health & safety website bespoke to your business and territory.

The website also works as a lead generation tool with free downloadable resources for potential and existing clients to access.

Ongoing support & advice

We hold quarterly meetings for our Licensees with our solicitor partners to discuss current issues, upcoming legislation and general legal support on any health & safety queries. Our H&S Technical Advisor in the central team is also always on hand to talk through unique or difficult client queries, in addition to the support of the rest of the network.
