    Hi thanks for reading. We have more than 600 jobs to be carried out over the next two weeks throughout the UK all of which are identical. The work consists of a simple visual check and installation of an additional componenent part. The original works consisted of more than 2000 and typical time on site is 15-20 minutes and our current team are carrying out an average of 15 visits per day. Anyone interested please contact [email protected]

    Hello Rob.
    Any more info?
    Is this Industrial, commercial or domestic work?
    If the work takes 20 mins and it takes 20 mins to get to the next job then you are looking at about 11 hour working day, including break, correct?
    Is this Monday to Friday or are you expecting weekend work?

    Seem to recall another member starting a thread about AMFM Ltd a while back, and I think the reading was not too positive, might be wrong.

    Hi - my name's Callum and I'm the owner of AMFM. As far as I'm aware no one from this company has ever been on this site before and I joined because Rob, our sales director, is pulling in an awful lot of work just now which I'm naturally pleased about but which is stretching both our internal resources and that of our sub contractors. We love our sub contractors :) and if anyone has ever made a negative comment I'd love to know about it if for no other reason than to see whether, in our six years of trading, we have someone unhappy who I don't know about.

    We invite sub contractors and suppliers, on whom we absolutely depend, to our social functions, our livery lunches and generally take a view that they should properly be treated as partners. While we're mostly about 30 day payment terms this is an entirely negotiable point at least in the early days of working with a new sub contractor since volume of work and other factors can create a cash flow strain which we're always willing to help with.

    In response to the original question, the number of units which an electrician decides to undertake is entirely down to that electrician. We're going to be paying £42-£50 per visit (£25 if the electrician turns up to an empty house which appears to be happening from time to time) and some sub contractors load up their day just with these jobs while others are taking them to fill gaps in their working day. We're allocating the jobs sorted by postcode and this reduces travelling time as far as we can.

    Anyway, if anyone has been saying bad things about AMFM please let me know. I can't go round to their house or anything since I'm only 5' 6 but I can post a sad emoji to Facebook..

    So you are paying between £630 to £750 per day?

    Thank you for that (good memory!!) and this is exactly the same job. I'm not an electrician so can't really comment on any of what the OP in this thread said other than to say that we are working specificially to the instruction of our client and that while I respect the opinion of any qualified person I have around a dozen equally qualified electricians who don't agree with the view of the OP. In relation to indemnity, I'm satisfied that following client instructions would certainly limit liablity which is to say that AMFM has professional indemnity insurance and that any issues which arise would be the responsbility of our client.

    Not that it matters, but AMFM has been a full soft facility management service provider since 2010 and was a product of a merger between my old company and a management agent; then an MBO. Cleaning is a big part of what we do (round about £50k a month, since you ask) but it's less than 25% of our overall turnover contribution. We've been increasing turnover at a vaguely alarming rate over the last couple of years and we're continuing to grow; I think anyone who meets Rob or MJ (Mary Jane) would get that it's them and not me who are making that happen but that's ok too.

    And we always, always pay our debts on time. If I end up finding people from this site I'm happy to sit down with anyone in front of my accounts and for them to pick any subbie they like to contact to verify this. We're not a big company and I like being open book with everyone who works for and with AMFM.

    Anyways, I'm absolutely delighted to have found this website and want to thank those among you who have responded. I forgot to mention London but I would very much like to hear from anyone in London/Middlesex/Surrey for both this current work and for works on an ongoing basis in our commercial portfolio.


    Obliged to all :)

    It seems to average at about that for the guys who are devoting days to it but there's one guy from Nottingham has hit the £900-£1000 more than a few times in the last couple of months. That said, he's doing it as a team of 2, the second guy apparently fulfilling no other function than doing the chit chat with householders which would likely take longer than the job itself for someone solo..
