Achieving work-life balance as a UK HR professional: the power of running your own consultancy business

Are you dreaming of a better work-life balance? Imagine the freedom to manage your own time, the satisfaction of building something that’s truly yours, and the flexibility to tailor your work around your life, not the other way around. This is not just a dream; it’s a tangible reality when you run your own HR consultancy franchise.

1. Flexibility and control over your schedule

One of the most significant advantages of running your own consultancy is the flexibility it offers. As a franchisee, you control your schedule. This means you can start work early or late, take breaks when needed, and even schedule meetings around your personal commitments. This level of control is rarely possible in a traditional 9-to-5 job.

For some of our franchisees, it’s about working round the school run, or the ability to take time off for family commitments without having to ask. For others, it’s about making time for hobbies or just being able to work at the times they know they are most effective.

2. Work from anywhere

The beauty of a consultancy business, especially in HR, is that much of your work can be done remotely. This means you can work from the comfort of your home, a local café, or even while on holiday. The reduction in commute time not only saves hours each week but also decreases stress, contributing to a healthier work-life balance.

3. Choose your clients and projects

As the owner of a consultancy franchise, you have the liberty to choose the clients and projects that align with your expertise and interests. This autonomy allows you to engage in work that is meaningful and enjoyable, leading to greater job satisfaction and a better balance between professional and personal life. Being able to walk away from a client you don’t feel a good ‘match’ with is very empowering!

4. Scalability to match your lifestyle

Starting a consultancy doesn’t mean you have to go big from the start. You can scale your business to suit your lifestyle and desired workload. Whether you want to work part-time to spend more time with your family or grow a full-scale business, the choice is yours. Some of our consultants choose to really go for it, grow a team and achieve high turnover. Others choose to maintain a good level of clients manageable by themselves.

Embarking on the journey of running your own HR consultancy franchise is an empowering step towards achieving the work-life balance you desire. It offers flexibility, autonomy, and the opportunity to do work that is both meaningful and rewarding.

If you’re ready to take control of your professional life and enjoy the benefits of being your own boss, then a consultancy franchise with face2faceHR could be the perfect path for you.
