Why a serviced office?
With all-inclusive rents and flexible contracts, serviced offices have become a really popular option for businesses.
Unlike traditional offices which tie you into a long-term contract, shared offices often operate on a rolling monthly contract, covering all your standard usage charges in one fee that’s smaller than that of a private office. Seeing as you’ll be sharing with similar companies it’s also great for networking and collaboration. Chances are you’ll end up in an office that’s a lot cooler too – free barista coffee/food, networking events, private bars and hot-desking are just some of the perks.
