Daisy First Aid

Description:

Daisy First Aid is a multi award winning training company providing 2 hour first aid classes for parents and carers in their own homes and local venues.

We want children to run, jump and play but occasionally accidents happen or a child becomes ill.

Our brilliant franchisee's give parents the knowledge and confidence to deal with these first aid situations should they arise.

Our lesson plans are designed not to frighten parents but provide a fun and easy way to learn emergency first aid.

Franchisee's have exclusive territories and can book classes to fit around their own busy lives. We provide full and ongoing support to all franchisee's in marketing, social media training and how to run a business.

How often do you work?
I tend to do a little bit of admin/marketing most days - that might be 10 minutes on social media or answering emails, or it might be spending a few hours going to teach a class. It really depends on what I want and how many bookings I have taken.

How does the job fit around your family life?
Daisy First Aid fits perfectly around my family life. I have 3 children so I arrange classes at times that suit us - I never have to miss anything going on at school and I even chair their PTA charity. I choose when I want to work and I have an online booking system which means that customers can book into my available classes even when I’m not working so I don’t miss out on opportunities.

How much time do you commit?
My franchise is my main income and I work somewhere between 20 - 30 hours a week some weeks, or as little as 5 hours other weeks. It really depends on what I want to do/what else I have going on with my family. It’s also changed over the years as I’ve expanded my family and scaled up and down as needed.

Where do you carry out your work?
I do all my admin and marketing at home and I run classes in people’s homes within my exclusive territory postcodes. I also run public venue classes at venues of my choosing.

Do you need a car?
Yes you do. There are a couple of big bags of manikins to get to and from classes - and private classes are usually in residential areas so a car is essential.

Do you get support/training?
Yes and it’s really good! There is initial business & first aid training when you join, then ongoing training and support from a dedicated franchisee coach. Daisy First Aid also has an online training hub to help with general business skills & marketing which is updated regularly. The support from the rest of the franchisees is also brilliant . Everyone is lovely and just wants to help each other.

Would you recommend this opportunity to others?
Being a Daisy First Aid franchisee is a true opportunity to run a business in the way that you want to. It’s flexible around family life and the franchisor is inspiring and empowering. Running any business is hard work, but it’s so very rewarding - not least because our classes actually save people’s lives. Becoming a franchisee after having my first baby was the best thing, it’s changed my life.

Do you advertise?
I advertise in a wide range of places, including Facebook, Instagram, Google and children’s activity directories. I also regularly leaflet my areas in places that parents go. I get a lot of recommendations and word of mouth from previous customers too.

Are there any downsides to the role?
Not really! It can be a little isolating working for yourself, but the rest of the Daisy First Aid franchisees are well connected via whatsapp and our Facebook group so there is always someone to chat to, bounce ideas off or get help from. Head office also runs regular online training and social sessions so I don’t feel like I’m alone in business.
