People from Tameside working from back bedrooms or from dining room tables as part of a flexible deal from employers now have another option to consider.
Office Tech & Space on Globe Street in Dukinfield has had a £multi-million makeover to provide light of touch office services to a new generation of workers.
So forget the two hour commute and stresses of trying to achieve a good work life balance, all that you need from flexible office accommodation is just around the corner.
The brainchild of Jason Dixon, CEO of Office Tech Holdings and an MLS Advantage member the new Office Tech and Space building is now open for viewing and interested parties are invited to come along to an Open Evening next Thursday 2nd December from 6pm-9pm.
People attending the informal drop in event can enjoy fizz, canapes and light refreshments to mark the latest stage in the building’s ambitious renovation programme and talk to experts on the ground about its benefits and packages.
The offices will have on-site parking and be equipped with super-fast Wi-Fi and broadband. There will be PO box facilities with digital inbound and outbound mail services, printing services and conference space, as well as a 46-seat bistro and coffee shop with the focus on healthy, nutritional meals.
Located just two miles from the M60 and seven miles from Manchester city centre the hybrid workspace has been designed for businesses looking to downsize their office space and smaller businesses, freelancers and individuals that want to benefit from local office facilities and up-to-date technology at an affordable pay-as-you go price, without committing to larger long term fixed overheads.
Jason said: “The pandemic has fundamentally changed how, when and where we work, and we know that not everyone is working from home as productively and compliantly as they could. We hope that as many people as possible will come and have a look next week and look to use the facility when it opens fully at the end of January 2022.
“It aims to provide high spec workspace to support regional businesses that are switching to a hybrid work model – cutting down on lengthy commutes and expensive parking – as well as for those younger, smaller businesses that want to enjoy working in a more professional and secure environment.”
The cohab workspaces are backed up with all the services, tech solutions and support required to help companies operate seamlessly, efficiently and compliantly.
Office Tech Holdings recently announced the appointment of Sarah Bennsir as the new Food & Beverage Manager at the fast-growing business hub. Sarah Bennsir joins Office Tech Holdings having previously worked at Macdonald Hotels and as an HR Manager at Tesco.
Sarah will head up the on-site restaurant, Babushka’s Lounge and Bar and will be responsible for recruiting the entire hospitality team, including chefs and front of house staff as well as devising a successful menu.
Sarah said: “It’s great to be a part of the Office Tech & Space project. It is no doubt going to be challenging, but extremely rewarding.”
Membership fees at Office Tech & Space start at around £70 a month and members will be able to use the cohab workspace as they see fit on a ‘come and go’ basis. At full capacity it expects to accommodate up to 600 people on varying flexible deals.
Jason again: “We have kept it extremely cost effective. This will be a vibrant business community hub with access to everything you need for less than the price of a cup of coffee a day.”
The space is also commercial home to EVJ Training Academy, specialists in beauty and aesthetics courses, and Unilever’s away from home division, known colloquially as the ice cream team!
Jason has also set up a membership offer with Hyde-based gym, Ultimate Fitness, to give customers a one day free pass and 20% off the cost of a respective membership.
