The largest peer-to-peer support and business advisory franchise system

The Alternative Board is looking for exceptional individuals

The Alternative Board is a unique franchise in the UK. No other business consulting franchise has developed a presence as well as our client. As part of the world’s largest peer to peer support and business advisory franchise system they have the knowledge and expertise to help aspiring and successful business people change career and give something back to the business community.

Established in 1990 there are now over 250 business owners around the world that are benefitting from the support of The Alternative Board’s proven system that has helped them build a sustainable income – as either a full blown business or as a lifestyle business. Much is spoken of individuals building a large scale business but our client’s experience here in the UK since 2009 has shown them that their system is perfect whatever your personal circumstances – so build a large business or work the business around your other interests – our client can accommodate you if you meet their requirements.

Working with SMEs can be a huge challenge – yet we all know that SME owners and directors are time poor and can be swamped with the challenges of building a business – whatever the economic climate. SME owners often make many more decisions on a day to day basis than the CEO of FTSE 100 companies and often they have nobody they can turn to. This is why The Alternative Board need people who want to give something back – years of experience which can be borne out of mistakes made and lessons learned – and help those who sometimes struggle to see the wood for the trees.

The Alternative Board offer a lot of support and a great deal of teamwork to get you up and running. The principals of the UK business have had strong corporate careers but struck out to develop the UK business and have never looked back. They want you to be part of the future of this growth business so reach out and start a discussion.

Our client has spent years ensuring that the major banks such as HSBC, NatWest, Lloyds and RBS support their business model and that gives them the confidence to support up to 70% of your capital requirement as determined by your business plan. Our client can set you in business for as little as £17,750 of your own capital.

The Alternative Board encourage you to run a lean business, controlling your overheads which means that very quickly you can be generating a strong ROI and by the end of your third year they believe that you can achieve an income in excess of £100k. Being in business for yourself is highly rewarding and The Alternative Board welcome the chance to share with you their vision and explain how you have a part to play in that.

The Alternative Board is proud to be a member of the bfa and actively supports good franchising.

All Full and Associate members of the bfa must meet four key criteria: that the business is viable, franchisable, ethical and fully disclosed.

These principles underpin the accreditation process before membership is granted. As part of their application, franchisors are expected to demonstrate how they meet these standards and provide evidence of the same, where appropriate.

“I’d hankered after my own business for years. It gives me real independence, the opportunity to collaborate with great people and I’m in control of my own destiny. At first, I thought it would simply be focussed on improving performance and business change but, I know realise it is just as much about helping people to achieve their personal vision and improving their lives – a key driver for me.”
