A chance to be part of the number 1 staffing agency worldwide


If you’re thinking of starting your own business, you’ll feel a lot more confident with a tried and tested franchise behind you. And few franchises can match the credentials of Express Employment Professionals.

Express is one of the most successful franchised recruitment companies in the world, with more than half a million people employed across more than 860 franchise locations in the US, Canada and South Africa. 

The company specialises in providing temporary professional, administrative and commercial staffing and employment solutions. And, throughout 2020, Express was recognised with some of the industry’s most prestigious accolades, including Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500, Franchise Direct‘s Top 100 Global Franchises, the Canadian Franchise Association’s Recognition Awards and ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Awards.

Now Express is expanding through Australia and New Zealand. If you have the drive and determination to grow your own professional services business, this is your chance to be part of a global success story. 

Almost 40 years’ experience 

When Bill Stoller and Bob Funk founded Express Employment Professionals back in 1983 they were determined to do business differently. They believe that, when people are working in the right jobs, individuals, businesses and communities succeed together. It’s a fusion of caring and professionalism that has underpinned almost 40 years of global success.

“The company’s vision is to help as many people as possible find good jobs by helping as many clients as possible find good people,” says CEO Arthur McColl, who is leading the Sydney-based team. 

McColl has experience working with multiple brands across five franchise groups and their parent companies – and, in 2019, he was named one of the top five Franchise Executives in Australia.

“I’m looking forward to helping new franchisees to build their own profitable businesses in Australia and New Zealand,” he says.  

What does it take?

McColl describes the ideal Express franchisee as sales driven with a history of high achievement and a passion for developing and managing a team. 

“Our people build their business through sales and recruiting so they need to be proactive and outgoing with excellent communication skills,” says McColl. “Experience in sales and sales leadership can be an advantage, but you don’t need to have worked in recruitment or staffing, or to have owned a business before. We provide all the training and support you need.”

In return, franchisees enjoy the security of owning a business with a long, proven track record and strong backing.

“As an Express franchisee you’re your own boss in the professional services sector,” says McColl. “You’ll generally keep professional hours, so your weekends are free. And you’ll be generating your own success by matching people to jobs that suit their skills and that they enjoy, which is very satisfying and fulfilling.”
