Twistin Tots is now looking to recruit two people to join its Team.
The successful individuals will need to be self-motivated, reliable and enthusiastic. Musical experience is not essential, but would be an asset; as would working with the under 5 age group (though again, this is not essential). As there is some travelling required with each job, the successful candidates must have use of a car and hold a full, clean driving licence. Flexibility and a willingness to travel to new venues is essential.
Post holders will be responsible for running Twistin Tots classes (both established and new); running sessions within nurseries; providing cover for other Twistin Tots staff (as required); and running birthday parties – necessitating some weekend work. Applicants will be responsible for their own budgeting and accounting; marketing and promotion; establishing of new classes; and finding and delivering nursery opportunities.
Each post-holder will have a designated area in which to work: Post-Holder 1 will cover established classes and nursery sessions in Spondon and Little Eaton and will work in and around the Derby area; Post-Holder 2 will cover established classes in Wingerworth and a Matlock Play Centre, and will work within the Matlock/Bakewell/Chesterfield area.
Salary will be determined by the number of classes, nursery sessions and birthday parties being delivered – further details available on the detailed job spec below. The franchise will initially be offered for a five year period with the option for the Post-Holder to renew should they wish to do so.
Applicants should fill in the Questionnaire (above) – giving as much detail as possible – and return it with their CV and a passport sized photograph, to Jacqui Davis at email@example.com or hand in to Jacqui / Lisa / Jenny at any class.
There is no specific closing date for applications – recruitment is on-going. Interviews for successful candidates will be held within two weeks of CVs and Questionnaires being received.
What to know more………….?
Twistin’ Tots has been running successfully for eleven years. Classes are well received because of their relaxed informal style and fun concepts, but also because customers like the people who are running them….. Personality sells!!
As a franchisee, you will be buying into a proven business model, but your personality can help to develop it even further. All of our classes are about parents and children having fun, while educating and developing them at the same time; they are also a great way for parents to meet new people, make new friends and provide their children with an opportunity to mix with their peers in a fun environment.
So, are you suited to running a franchise?
You don’t need any particular qualifications to run a Twistin Tots franchise.
The most important things that we are looking for are personality and bags of enthusiasm. We don’t require you to hold any particular qualifications, but we do need you to have limitless energy, patience, a cheerful disposition and enjoy working with children. (We do require a DBS check, but that’s the easy part!)
You don’t have to be musically inclined, but you will need the confidence to stand up in front of an audience and be able to entertain them. You will also need to love children (having little ones of your own will definitely be an advantage in this job!) and enjoy meeting new people. A sense of humour will also help!
It’s not all fun. The job does entail some degree of “furniture removal” – moving equipment, tables chairs etc in venues. There will be some basic accounting and marketing, but our systems will help you with those tricky bits and we will provide you with templates for your use and a marketing guide for promoting your classes.
What will I be doing as a franchisee?
There is no typical day, although we would expect you to commit to running a minimum of two classes per week. You can run as many classes as you wish and these can be fitted around school runs, pre-school pick ups, school holidays, family commitments etc as you see fit.
You do not have to run in the school holidays, but if you have pre-school children yourself you may decide to do so, as most groups shut down for the Summer, so you may decide to try and make a profit out of this!
So, are you still interested? If so, a Twistin Tots franchise may be just what you are looking for. Please complete the attached questionnaire and email it back to me for further information to firstname.lastname@example.org
