Focus On......

An exciting opportunity to run your own performing arts school

As a Jigsaw Arts franchisee you would have the exciting and rewarding opportunity to run your own performing arts school. You would be joining an ever-growing network of schools and investing in both your future and the future of the children who attend, teaching them valuable skills for life through benefits that only the performing arts have to offer; and what’s more, you can do all of this whilst maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

A strong franchise model in which flexible working works

Many of Jigsaw’s franchisees and managers are working mums who are enjoying the benefits of a flexible working model. With flexible working being a key value at Jigsaw Arts, the bespoke administrative systems available mean that you too can be your own boss and run a successful business whilst staying on top of family life.

Support and training every step of the way

Jigsaw understands that whilst running a business can be an exciting new challenge it can also feel like a huge leap of faith; this does not need to be the case and support and training is offered from the very beginning to help guide you through your journey as a franchisee.

Sally Murphy KiddleydiveyInterview with parents in business.....

Each month we talk to a business owner or work from home parent in order to gain some knowledge about their job.

We cover the highs and lows of parents juggling family life and maintaining a successful career. We also pick up some hints and tips along the way.

This month we talk to Sally Murphy, Founder of Kiddleydivey

She offers three franchise options, one to work with children, one to work with the elderly and special needs, or a franchise that offers the combination of both.

You may have career experience working with children or with the elderly already, you may have had a music based background – whilst these are desirable qualities, they are not essential for the job.  What is so important is that you are a motivated, enthusiastic, confident person.
