With the Auditel Consultancy Business opportunity you can become a Cost and Carbon Solutions Consultant helping organisations reduce their costs and carbon emissions and in so becoming verified carbon neutral.
Established since 1994, Auditel’s heritage as leading energy specialists has meant their journey has evolved into carbon solutions thanks to the immense talent pool within the Auditel network, all collaborating on a ‘level playing field’ thanks to the balanced franchise licence structure.
Become a ‘Member Firm’ or ‘Partner’ of the Auditel Business Community and you’ll be part of a 100-strong network of cost management, procurement and carbon solutions consultants who are really making a difference – for themselves, their clients, and the planet!
The financial performance opportunity with Auditel is huge. Some Partners are receipting well over £200,000 per year but remember there are a multitude of other benefits that Auditel Partners enjoy too!
Auditel support clients in navigating their path to Carbon Neutrality, but a double-benefit is that it can be funded through the cost savings in procurement from within the business that Auditel also achieve.
By combining the expertise of Auditel’s own Carbon Strategy Group and partnering with British Standards Institute (BSI) they are assisting clients towards the only internationally recognised standard, PAS2060. “Specification for the demonstration of carbon neutrality”, positioned to clients as a simplified 4-step process.
Auditel franchise partners can generate revenue through a mix of monthly retainer fees and fixed fee projects and then also develop a range of additional income streams that will be developed alongside. Carbon is also great for cash flow as you’ll start billing at the outset of the client engagement.
|"I started my Auditel business with training in October 2022 and already by the end of the year I had secured my first client, with two more proposals out for imminent decisions and have another twelve prospective client meetings in the diary over January and February. I’m very excited to have joined Auditel at a time when cost and carbon reduction is so high on the agenda for UK businesses. The training and support I have received since starting has been superb and I’m looking forward to growing my business over the years ahead and enjoying the wide-ranging benefits that an Auditel business offers.” Julie Adams, Auditel Partner
Auditel Partners boost cash-flow within their client’s business by saving money through better procurement, process improvement or identifying how technology can play a greater part in their business. Auditel deliver ‘best value’, saving client’s money, increasing profit, and making a tangible difference. The savings made can also fund complimentary projects such as carbon management solutions including investing in renewable energy solutions, purchasing carbon offsets or becoming verified carbon neutral by trusted partners such as BSI and NQA.
Procurement and carbon go ‘hand in hand’ and Auditel are very unique in offering both service offerings that are both in such high demand at the moment. Auditel can achieve for their clients’ incredible results that any business just can’t achieve by themselves – through cost category expertise, supplier and pricing knowledge, and collated buying power. This creates long-term income streams with flexible fee-earning methods including share of savings, retainer, fixed fee and day rate options. You can enjoy considerable benefits by joining Auditel, from as little as just £20,000 providing a potentially huge return on investment whilst helping the planet too.
"I started approaching clients by leading with carbon solutions in October 2001. By February 2022 I had already secured seven new clients all paying me monthly retainers totalling nearly £100k per year, and I had more clients sign throughout the year. By the end of 2022, I had more clients than I could manage by myself, so I ‘joint venture’ the project work with my Auditel colleagues. Carbon acts as the ‘door opener’ from which procurement and cost management projects then come on top. The financial rewards are enormous, in January 2023 I’ve billed over £25k alone, but I feel great about the impact of the work that I do, especially the positive environmental impact – I’m passionate and proud about helping businesses manage and reduce carbon emissions."
Auditel’s ‘entry level’ business model can fit those seeking a part-time long-term business, or used as a ‘stepping stone’ to upgrade to a Full Partner Business model, or can even be used by existing businesses that wish to become a Member Firm of Auditel’s network in order to support their existing activities.
The Full Partner Business covers approximately 80% of the existing Auditel network, and will likely be to model that is appropriate for the majority of people exploring
Auditel ongoing. It provides scope to your business to get the benefits you want, and can develop further into an Auditel Practice in which you can scale up employ multiple staff.
An Auditel Practice can be developed over time however an option for an ‘Investor’ is this package where you can have five people trained and supported from the outset with some other additional support tools too.
Auditel is a collaborative network of around 100 franchised partners who have come from varied backgrounds but usually at senior-management or director level. By playing to their strengths, Partners can work together to deliver procurement, supply chain management and carbon solutions to organisations of wide-ranging industry sectors and sizes.
Auditel can suit people from all industry sectors and areas of expertise. You do not need to be an accountant or a procurement specialist! Auditel offers a broad array of ‘pathways’ to suit your skills, experience and business objectives.
This means that if you enjoy client management and business development you can focus your business on these areas and utilise the expertise of other Auditel Partners who can deliver the project management aspects.
Equally, if you have experience and knowledge in certain areas, for example, Logistics, Packaging or Waste Management, you can develop this expertise with Auditel and over time, undertake projects for other affiliates alongside your own client activities.
You can play to your strengths in Auditel, though every Partner is thoroughly trained and supported ongoing in all aspects of the business.
"I’ve got a stable, profitable business with a great team behind me, and financially I am in a better position than I would be if I was still in full time employment. I was fortunate and very grateful to be able to build our dream home for my family and I last year. I wouldn’t have been able to start my property journey without the income from Auditel and I wouldn’t have been able to build the house if I didn’t have the time – so the flexibility of the business has played a pivotal role."
