Co-working gives early stage businesses the opportunity to work alongside other like-minded professionals, encouraging a prosperous community of small business owners, freelancers and entrepreneurs all working separately but together under one roof.
For co-workers or hot-deskers, The Workstation also offers flexible room to grow; each business centre has private offices to rent should you decide that it’s time for you and your business have your own space.
Printing facilities, business mailboxes, lockers, meeting rooms and event space hire are also available as useful add-on services from The Workstation. Members are also invited to networking events which are held regularly within The Workstation calendar and community.
With such flexibility and sense of community, coworking and hotdesking is ideal for start-ups, freelancers and existing small businesses looking to enhance and develop their business presence without the commitment of a traditional office.
