Outplacement with a difference.

In a world of employment where traditional career development options are becoming increasingly rare, codeFQ was born to help companies to provide a complementary solution to regular outplacement programmes. The employees of today and tomorrow must prepare for abrupt and unexpected career changes. They must also be open to new ideas in order to increase their future career opportunities.

Our aim is to promote franchising to members of staff of large companies and corporations that are subject to early retirement programmes or paid voluntary redundancies.

CodeFQ offers the employee numerous advantages when investigating in a new franchise businesses. We match the individual’s profile with franchise opportunities that suit their skill set and aspirations. We present a work plan, developed over 10 steps, that may conclude with the candidate investing in the brand of their choice and becoming a self-employed business owner.

CodeFQ goes beyond technical training. CodeFQ is a ‘business ownership’ programme that prepares the candidate for self-employment.

After our special selection process, we will help candidates in 2 areas:

  • the technical skills needed to launch a new franchise business and,
  • the personal skills needed to prepare them for the challenge of self-employment.

In partnership with

CodeFQ offers employees who are subject to outplacement programmes, an opportunity to become self-employed business owners. We match their profile and aspirations, with leading, ethical franchise brands in the UK.
