Federation of Small Businesses Chooses Serviced Office Space
A leading small business support organisation has chosen serviced offices for its new base in the South West.
The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has chosen serviced offices for its new regional base, moving into UBCΓÇÖs business centre in Cirencester. From here, the organisation will continue its work to support its 7,000 members across Gloucestershire and the West of England.
Speaking about the decision to locate at UBC Cirencester, FSB Regional Development Manager, Sam Holliday, highlighted the thriving business community already present within the business centre, saying; ΓÇ£There are many other small businesses already operating at the UBC offices, and we felt it was an ideal position for us to have our regional office as wellΓÇ¥.
The opportunity to join a community of likeminded businesses will be familiar to serviced office tenants, many of whom as small businesses have found the networking opportunities to be valuable for their business.
Many business centres, such as UBC, host regular networking events to help tenants meet each other and make new connections; whether that be over an informal breakfast meet-up, gathering for coffee and a cake, or more formal conference and learning events.
ItΓÇÖs not uncommon for businesses to find new suppliers, partnering opportunities or even customers within their own business centre.
Of course, for the tenants at UBC Cirencester the arrival of the FSB will bring additional benefits their way. As Tom Mulvaney, UBCΓÇÖs Managing Director, says;
ΓÇ£We are very pleased the FSB has chosen to join our thriving business community in Cirencester. We accommodate many talented entrepreneurs and small businesses here, and the arrival of such a highly regarded business support group as the Federation of Small Businesses is a very welcome addition. I know that our existing clients will no doubt benefit greatly from the wealth of knowledge and support that the Federation can offer.ΓÇ¥
In choosing serviced offices as their business base, the FSB is in line with the small business sector which has long recognised the benefits of serviced office space.
For some, itΓÇÖs the ability to expand their premises at short notice which makes serviced offices an attractive option, while others find the inclusive, fixed monthly rates a valuable method for managing their office-related outgoings.
And while small businesses have long known the benefits of serviced offices, an increasing number of large businesses and corporates are making the switch and using serviced space in place of conventional space on longer leases.
