Coworking creates thriving communities

If you enjoyed forgoing the commute, but not the isolation of working from home, if a dedicated office space suits your needs but the price tag is just too much, then coworking could be the answer for you.

Coworking allows you to take advantage of first-rate premises - including communal workspaces, private offices, boardrooms, video conferencing facilities, event venues,  cafe/bar and a prestigious address - without footing the entire bill yourself.

The services are there for you to use them as you need them: equipment, technology and floorspace for very little financial or contractual commitment, which is reassuring during these uncertain times.

That’s the cost benefit, which is all-important right now. But the benefits of coworking go well beyond affordability: when you’re in a busy, thriving coworking space, you’re surrounded by other businesses that are ambitious, forward-thinking, and full of interesting ideas. There’s an opportunity to network each and every time you sign in.

Better still, The Landmark is also an official site partner of the Barclays Eagle Labs innovation programme, offering free business support services, financial advice, free training opportunities, access to Eagle Lab events nationally, and the option to check in to other city-centre coworking spaces around the UK.

Coworking spaces are buzzing hubs of business activity

Until recently, coworking was primarily seen as exclusively for start-ups and freelancers. But the demand for more flexible ways of working has seen a much more diverse range of businesses - including large corporates - set up home in our coworking spaces.

Now coworking spaces are buzzing hubs of business activity, home to companies just like yours reaping the benefits of a more flexible, affordable and social way of working.
