“I’ve had the ambition for the last 20 years to work for myself at some point, and now I have the opportunity”, said Andy.

“It’s very hard to go it alone. With a franchise, I can partner with someone who has been through the process, knows the mistakes to avoid and can help me to get ahead.

Andy Hover“My last corporate role was in procurement so I could gain commercial experience to take me into general management or my own business.

“Restructuring gave me the opportunity and funds to take this big, brave step.”

An HR generalist by trade, Andy works across the employee life cycle, offering a wide range of support.

His career so far has included work in the biotech and chemical sectors.

“I enjoy and have added most value in organisational development and change management”, he added, “but I’ve successfully worked across ‘everything HR’.

“After 28 years there isn’t much I haven’t seen and done – but equally, I have to keep up to date with best practice, new legislation and ever-changing case law.”
