Explore a new business venture that allows you to 'be you' again

1st June 2016

Are you a lover of children's books? Do you want to  run a business that's fun and fits around your family? 

At Usborne Books at Home, we offer you the chance to open your own 'pop-up bookshop', selling award-winning children's books at parties, schools and other events for a joining fee of just £38. We provide you with a platform to be your own boss, build a team and enjoy increased earnings along the way.

Why join?

Becoming an Independent Usborne Organiser provides a really unique business opportunity. All you need is a passion for Usborne books and a will to share that passion with others. It really is that simple!

After you have joined, you will be sent a lovely selection of books and stationery (worth over £150!) and have support from a Mentor (and often a wider team) from day one. There are also lots of exciting incentives to motivate you with our Passport to Success programme - a collection of milestones that will help you achieve the business success you want, step-by-step.

Over our 35 year history, we have supported thousands of Organisers in their mission to put quality books into children's hands and 'write a better story for their families'.

Today, we'd like to help you do the same.

I'd like to become an Organiser, how do I join?

Great! You can sign up online straight away. If you are already in touch with an Organiser, please ensure you have their Organiser ID or their first and last name to hand so that we can assign you to their team.

Alternatively, our experienced Organisers will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
