Tracey Cockerton, Franchise Recruitment Manager for Metro Rod, said: “Metro Rod Cambridge has all the ingredients required to become a flagship business in our network. It’s an established organisation with a thriving team, strong history of accounts and a wealth of assets – it’s quite literally a business in a box, making it a great opportunity for anyone with the vision and ambition to take it to new levels of success.

“We’re seeking someone with valuable management experience, who is capable of stepping into the business and identifying the areas for big growth. The ideal candidate would be someone who will be immersed in the business, who can make quick efficiencies, who is eager to strike up new relationships and who capitalises on the opportunities in front of them.

“People who take over Metro Rod franchises benefit from a strong and sustained marketing effort from our central Support Centre, which also feeds leads directly into the business on a regular basis, so as well as developing their own portfolio of customers and key contacts in the area, the new owner can also use our support to build on its established commercial and domestic customer base.

“And there’s no better time to invest into Metro Rod than right now; despite all the economic challenges our country faces, drainage is deemed an essential service and is a £40bn industry. It has proven in the past to be a covid and recession resistant business which is relied upon no matter what else is going on in the world. As investments go, this is one of the most secure options available, while also being incredibly exciting.”
