Business calls to give hand up to young adult by Carly Cullen

29th Jan 2019

‘A WURTULLA resident wants to give a young adult a business opportunity after he missed out on his own dream job at 23.

In his early 20s, James’ Home Services Sunshine Coast regional franchisor Stuart Thor was being coached by Manly’s Terry Randall with goals of becoming a professional footballer.

But a change of age bracket from U23 (which Mr Thor belonged to) to U21 resulted in his football career narrowly escaping him.

That’s why he now wishes to give an under 23-year-old the chance to run James Home Services Window and Exterior House Cleaning as their own business for one year.

The home services business offers an additional five branches to the window and exterior component, including: interior house care, lawn and garden care, mobile car cleaning, carpet cleaning and pest control, mobile pet grooming and hydrobath. However, Mr Thor said windows and exterior was a great place to start.

“With window cleaning, it’s something that can be learned rather quickly and then they’d be able to create a business.

“They’d get full training, the equipment, the business and we’d help them through it all,” he said.

The lucky person to receive this opportunity will experience the business for a year before deciding if they would like to continue.

“If it was my son, I’d think what if it didn’t work out? Well after the year they can just walk away.

“But I do really want to see someone succeed in it.

“If they wish to carry it out after the year then the support and mentoring would still be ongoing for the next five years.

“I know it’s not for everybody, but I’m hoping there’s someone on the Coast who I can help,” he said.

James Home Services CEO Mike Dowling said there would be no upfront fees for the right person.

“Window and exterior is worth $35,000, which they’d be getting for nothing,” he said.

Mr Thor is passionate about seeing the right person succeed.

“I’d love to see if there’s someone who wants the opportunity,” he said.

“People love seeing young kids having a good go and it’s the best environment I can provide.”
