Leaving the Forces and looking for a new career on Civvy Street?

How do I choose the right business for me?

With a boom in specialist recruitment companies there is a significant sector aimed purely at supporting ex-forces find work, however, had you thought about becoming your own boss and running your own business?
Forces personnel are highly recognised for their high levels of training and commitment which are the type of skills that are often required to run a business. 

Setting up your own business can be a daunting prospect which is why a ready-made business which has been vetted by a business broker such as Axis Partnership is an attractive proposition.
Facing redundancy is a daunting prospect but this can be turned in to a great investment opportunity for you, your partner or family member. 

The Axis Partnership has been helping clients throughout the UK for more than 16 years find the right business to buy. 

As well as staying with you every step of the way we have a network of tried and tested professionals that will help you whether financial or legal help is required. 

Things to take into consideration:

  • What is my existing skill set?
  • What are the barriers to entry for a particular industry?
  • Is training readily available?
  •  Will the business owner provide a comprehensive handover?
  • Is this a family opportunity or something for just myself?
  • How long will it take once I have identified a business I would like to buy?

This will really depend on the type of business you are looking to acquire, something small for yourself such as a lifestyle businesses or perhaps something that could involve the family.
