I enjoy travelling to client businesses as I would hate to be stuck behind a desk working in an office every day.
“I get a huge amount of satisfaction from my job. We go into an office and in just a few hours we make such a big difference to their working environment. I call the women I work with my ‘dream team’ and clients are always genuinely delighted with the results.”
A Techclean franchise can slot in at any stage of your working life or provide a second income stream alongside an existing business.
