Kevin O'Malley is a Founding Member & Executive Vice Presidents responsible for expansion and marketing for a franchise-like model for a U.K. financial education company, called Genistar.

Kevin is looking to meet entrepreneurial people who are looking for new lucrative, cash friendly business ventures and/or additional income streams.

Genistar, an 12 year old UK based financial education company, teach middle-income families all about money and empower them to get out of debt and work towards financial independence.
As they have Partner companies in the Financial Services industry to whom they refer their clients which generate revenues which funds their work, they do not charge families separately for this financial education.

They have a strong presence in the Greater London area, with Administrative offices in Caterham, Surrey with new rapid 2019 expansion planned for Northern Ireland.

They are in the process of vetting, interviewing and hiring candidates for a new team of people over the next 3-6 months who will be their "Class of 2019/20" to grow their company and to teach and serve more people all over the UK including Northern Ireland.

The proposed candidates who will assist in Genistar's expansion have earning potential of either £500-£2,000 a month working part time within 6 to 10 hours a week or, for the most ambitious, transition to a full-time career with potential earnings of £50,000-£250,000 minimum over the next 12 to 18 months with a higher earning potential thereafter.

These candidates must be trustworthy, enthusiastic and very good with people.

No specific academic qualifications are necessary (although they are sometimes helpful) as they hire for attitude and they train for skills.
