Kumon opens its search for new UK franchisees

The UK’s largest supplementary education provider launches national promotional campaign to attract new Instructor franchisees.

As part of its drive to expand its growing network of more than 650 UK and Ireland Instructor franchises, Kumon has launched a campaign to attract professionals, looking to move into the education sector. In the lucrative growth sector of supplementary education, Kumon are market leaders and offer the support of a global brand with more than 60 years of experience.

The promotional campaign, running across social media advertising, radio and in conjunction with The Telegraph.co.uk, presents a number of case studies where Kumon Instructors talk about how they changed career to join Kumon. They cite Ivy Mann from Southampton, who had previously practiced as a physiotherapist, studied for a PhD and, seeking a more rewarding career, recently opened her Kumon business within the local community.

Ivy Mann said: “I’ve always wanted a profession where I can make a difference. As a physiotherapist, my core aim was to help people achieve the best health they could. Kumon’s aim is very similar: helping each child reach his or her potential. If you’re stuck with any aspect of running the business, you can always ask for help – I have an area manager who I can turn to for guidance, and the training you receive is thorough”

Kumon will be hosting a Franchise Event at their flagship study centre in Harborne, Birmingham on 29 April 2018, which is a vital part of the information and assessment session that Kumon recruits are invited to. Potential candidates from a variety of industries are expected to attend. Kumon’s existing Instructor network includes individuals with backgrounds in sectors as diverse as education, finance, law, engineering, IT, marketing, journalism, and optometry among others. Key attributes for potential franchisees is a passion for education, a degree qualification, as well as a high level of proficiency in English and maths. Interested candidates are encouraged to visit kumon.co.uk/about/franchising or to call the Kumon recruitment team on 0800 854 714 for details of local recruitment events.
