Leading Established Childcare Recruitment Franchise Covering Oxfordshire


Advert ref: 2005SH

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a very well established agency specialising in all aspects of childcare recruitment. 

Tinies Oxfordshire was established some 17 years ago, with the current owners being in place for nearly 11 years and have only made the business available due to personal circumstances. 

This is an easily run and profitable business, which is involved in both temporary and permanent recruitment of nursery and creche staff, nannies, and other childcare professionals and associated staff. 

It offers the opportunity to own an efficient and profitable business that will have an income stream from day one. It also has an excellent reputation for exceedingly high levels of service, which ensures referrals, recommendations and a high percentage of repeat business.

There are still many opportunities for expansion, and to further grow the three core areas of business - nannies, nurseries and mobile creches as well as the potential opportunity to run a fixed creche or nursery, which is an area that is not currently fully exploited due to the current owners time constraints, but the opportunities will be fully explained to seriously interested parties.

The business also has a valuable database of candidates, nurseries, parents and creche clients, with a total contact count of approximately 4,300 spread across the whole territory, some of which could be used to leverage additional services if the new owner chose to do so.

Any prospective purchaser can be assured of an excellent handover from the current owners, as well training via the franchisor, covering both the practical and theory of childcare recruitment and placement. 

Our opinion.

This is an established leading franchise, which offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a home based business in a much sought after sector, which has a robust trading history and long standing clients with repeating revenue streams.

We would therefore recommend that you register your further interest by completing the NDA by following the link below, after which a meeting with the current owner and full financial disclosure can be arranged.

Please also note that all enquiries should be directed to Business Partnership, and not directly to the owner of the franchisor.

Property Details: N/A
Asking Price: £69,500
Turnover: £170,000 Annual

The business is located in Oxfordshire and requires a base in the county if the owner is based out of area. This could be either a fixed or virtual office, or run from home if living in the county.

Relocatable: Yes
Home Based: Yes
Reason For Selling:
After 12 successful years with the franchise, which was taken on to suit a work/life balance, the owner now wishes to return to her original career path.

Financial Details:
By the pure nature of this business, it obviously took a significant dip in revenue at the start of the pandemic in 2020, but had recovered by the end of that year and is on target to generate revenue for 2021 of around £170,000 providing a net income of around £70,000, which is actually a slight improvement on the pre-pandemic position.

This is the market leader in this specialist area of childcare recruitment.

Expansion potential:
The business offers huge expansion potential in the hands of the right individual and is currently run very much to suit the owner's lifestyle. It also benefits from having a presence in the area.

Trading hours:
To suit, but broadly 09:00 to 17:30 Monday - Friday.

Support & training:
An excellent handover is assured from our client, coupled with full training and instruction being given by the franchisor.

Each party will be responsible for their own costs, with the purchaser also responsible for any additional costs that may be levied by the franchisor.
