Training and Support

All initial training takes place in person at Minster Cleaning’s Network Support Centre in Birmingham. New franchisees spend a week with the Managing Director and Heads of Department in marketing, operations, IT/internal systems and finance.

Managing Director, Mike Parker, is responsible for the day-to-day management of the team at the Network Support Centre and helping franchisees build their businesses. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in preparing franchisees for their career with Minster Cleaning.

The marketing team provides continued support to the franchise network in winning new business, customer retention / development and recruitment marketing. Initial training covers all of the above plus the Minster Cleaning brand and values and how your branch will need to conform to these.

Initial operational training covers the quoting process and how to calculate a quote. It also covers the operational side of cleaning including starting a new contract, all health and safety issues, risk assessments, method statements, site files, equipment and materials, and also compliance with the various laws and policies that govern Minster Cleaning.

The IT department provides IT services at a group-wide level, and also targeted proactive and reactive support for each branch. Training is also provided on Templa CMS, a digital tool that acts as a hub for payroll, holidays, invoicing and every aspect of customer relationship management (CRM). 

The finance department will provide initial training in financial administration. Ongoing support is provided in all areas of finance including billing and payroll.

Further support is available through regular national and regional meetings and via the branch network, where there is a healthy exchange of ideas and information.
