Sport Works Franchise – Sports franchises UK
Deliver award winning, innovative programmes with the security of long term local authority contracts
A Business Making a Difference
Sport Works is an award-winning provider of sport, exercise and educational programmes. Harnessing the power of sport, our work is focused on improving health and education and contributing to a healthier, more prosperous society.
After six years of solid growth in the North East of England, Sport Works launched its franchise opportunity in April 2013. As of January 2015, we are proud to have eleven franchise partners trading successfully throughout the UK (although we expect this number to grow considerably!).
Our programmes are not only energetic, educational and lots of fun, they are underpinned by a desire to make a difference to children and adults in local communities, many of them coming from disadvantaged backgrounds.
As a franchise owner you’ll manage several local authority regions in and around where you live and be the local face of our fast growing brand. You’ll employ local sports coaches and educational tutors and make sure that they are maintaining the highest possible standards whilst delivering what is required within each contract.
This means that although you’ll attend some programmes and occasionally lead from the front, your primary role is overseeing the implementation of what Sport Works does at a local level.
Your Training and Support
Sport Works has a carefully structured business blueprint and you’ll learn the core elements of what we do during a two-day initial training course at our Head Office in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Once your initial training is complete you can then refine what you have learnt in your own area by following our ‘Launch Plan’, a series of activities which will lead you towards your first piece of paid work!
In addition to ongoing training for you and your team every three months, you will be assigned a Mentor from the Head Office team to help support the growth of your business. We are coaches, afterall!
A Business Model with a Social Mission
Our work is highly varied and really makes a difference to society. When you work within such a positive and engaging environment, your experience as a business owner has rewards that are not measured purely in financial terms. Your job satisfaction comes free!
Our franchise fee of £9750 (plus VAT) is one of the most competitive in the sector, and with an earning potential well in excess of six-figures, the Sport Works business model is considered one of the most advanced in the UK.
Our Latest Franchisee, Jon Uttley
“Sport has always been my passion, both coaching and playing, in particular Rugby, Football and Squash. Having spent 20 years working in business in a range of commercial roles, my light bulb moment came when somebody asked “why not combine work with your passion?”.
“Franchising was the best option for me as I wanted to mitigate risk and the open and honest manner of the Sport Works team was key to my decision: I was not dealing with a Franchise Manager or being thrust like cattle onto a Discovery Day. There are many sports delivery companies and franchises, but none who offer the diverse array of revenue streams compared with Sport Works!”.
