APS Legal & Associates is one of the most widely recognised and trusted brands in the will writing and estate planning profession. Since being acquired by Simply Biz in 2014, a large company offering support to over 10,000 financial advisers, we have more resource than ever for both our in-house staff and associates. As well as being able to offer more training and mentoring, it also gives Associates peace of mind that we are a company with a solid foundation. As one of the largest members of the IPW (Institute of Professional Will Writers), and with circa 570 qualified associates across the country, our approach in a traditionally fragmented industry has allowed us to build a strong brand name with rapidly increasing recognition. All of our ‘in house’ staff are full IPW members, with the senior staff also being STEP qualified, and our associates are Associate IPW members and follow the Trading Standards Institute approved code of practice. The need for our services in protecting our client’s estates is becoming ever more important as it provides peace of mind, particularly at a time when this sector is often discussed and in the media.

About who we are looking for:

As an associate, you’ll be joining one of the largest estate planning and will writing companies in the UK. Currently over half of our population do not have wills in place and, of those that do, often further support is needed in other areas, such as lasting powers of attorney. We differ from other companies in that we have the full support of the Simply Biz group, our training is ongoing and although this sector is not regulated, we opt to follow a code of practice recognised by trading standards to act in a regulated way.

Training and support:

You’ll benefit from having full back office support and we will personally draft each document for you. This will enable you to focus your attention on the growth of your client bank and, consequently you will see the return as your business thrives. Although we are here to assist, you will have the freedom of running your very own business built around Wills, Trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorney. Our dedicated Training and Marketing departments are to hand to advise you on the marketing and development of your business and our Training Manager will share his vast knowledge of how to gain leads, who to approach in the sector and will demonstrate the most effective ways to grow your client bank. We have ready-made marketing materials available to purchase through our online Associate shop; however you will find that most of your clients will be gained through networking. . As well as having access to our technical hub, all of our Associates have complimentary 24/7 access to an online platform holding a wealth of information for personal and business development, including networking skills, problem solving and management expertise.

At APS Legal & Associates we are now excited to be able to offer extended referral opportunities, a loose referral system has always been in place for our associate partners however, after reviewing this we are now able to offer further support to enable you to grow your business through our referral opportunities. Although these leads are not guaranteed we are working as a company to ensure these increase into the business, to pass onto our Associates.

Financial information:

We are now able to take a lower initial fee from prospective associates, as this is something we can make up in documentation fees, and for the first time, we are introducing the option of a monthly payment plan.

As before, you will be able to pay the new cost of £2900 + VAT upfront prior to attending the course, or you would now be able to pay us £500 + VAT before the course, and then £200 + VAT a month for 12 months thereafter, totalling £2900.00 + VAT, if this is a more suitable option for you.

White Collar Franchises

White collar franchises are a leading sector within franchise recruitment. White collar franchise opportunities are often an ideal choice for a franchise seeker wishing to own a business and work alongside other business professionals. These opportunities are usually business to business.

Many white collar franchise opportunities can be home based so the need and expense for office premises can be eliminated, although the level of investment will vary among franchises some have low start up costs.

With training and a highly developed business method for many, a white collar franchise can be an ideal turn key solution for a business profession or anyone wishing to enter the world of business.

Unsurprisingly many franchise seekers attracted to white collar have often risen through the ranks in management posts for large corporations and may find themselves in a redundancy situation or perhaps decide to take early retirement and wish to take control of their lives, income and use the valuable business experience they have gained through their careers.

There are a vast scope of different types of businesses that fall under this genre these include business coaching and mentoring, consultancy, recruitment, cost reduction, accountancy and finance.

Accountancy & Financial Franchises

According to the Financial Times Legal & accountancy businesses including franchises and their employees generated a staggering £15.5bn ix taxes in 2016 and employed around 690,000 workers. Whilst some accountancy franchises are based from offices and shops many are home based businesses so with the growing demand for these services it is a very attractive sector when considering a career change via franchising.

As with any franchise with financial or accountant franchises you will get full training and support, helping you through any regulations and red tape by experience and qualified professionals. If providing the services into small businesses its easy to see how this could be a growing business as well the businesses you have as clients grow, so does their demand for more services which probably makes this a lower risk proposition than some businesses.

This sort of franchise would suit someone that loves meeting people and has some white collar or managerial experience but the beauty of franchising is it allows people to change career direction easily.
