Having transformed the way people work in London, the coworking revolution is now shifting the landscape of Manchester. The high costs and long contracts for commercial properties have traditionally been off-putting for startups, newer businesses, and those looking for offices. But Manchester’s recent crop of serviced offices offer a refreshing amount of flexibility.
One key advantage of coworking spaces is that providers are forced to be competitive and offer amazing facilities. If people are unhappy with what they offer, they can move elsewhere without being hampered by the usual 5-year lease. Consequently, the bar is set high and this shows in Manchester.
Manchester’s coworking spaces are an eclectic bunch—they cater for the needs of almost any industry, from retail to video game production. However specific your requirements for a coworking space are, you can be sure to find somewhere to fulfil them in Manchester.
