Hello Northwest Introduces New Clients to Orega’s Manchester Offices
Orega Ltd, a leading provider of flexible office space throughout the UK, has welcomed seven new clients to its Manchester business centre at Piccadilly Place (pictured).
Some of the new clients were introduced via the popular Hello Northwest initiative, which was launched by the North West Development Agency (NWDA) and MIDAS in 2010. The scheme was set up to provide free office space to new businesses for a year, particularly new foreign-owned businesses, as part of the region’s continued drive to attract investment and jobs.
Among the new clients that have moved to Piccadilly Place through the Hello Northwest scheme are Anglo Australian business consultancy The Corporate Planet, and Scottish-registered healthcare training company Healthimo.
They are joined by three interlinked government-funded charities – Teach First, Future Leaders and Teaching Leaders – which have taken a total of 19 workstations between them.
Teach First is an organisation set up to recruit and train graduates, specifically to teach in schools in challenging circumstances, and which has signed for 11 workstations for two years. Along with Future Leaders, Teach First has relocated to Piccadilly Place from elsewhere in Manchester, while the third of the group – Teaching Leaders, which trains middle leaders in schools, has established a North West base for the first time.
Helen Davies, Orega’s business centre manager in Manchester, said:
“Three Piccadilly Place is fast becoming the location of choice for a wide range of companies, with particular appeal to government-funded bodies and those seeking a UK base.
“The siting of the building directly opposite Manchester Piccadilly railway station makes it very convenient for both employees and visitors, while the flexibility of the space and its excellent BREEAM environmental rating make it a very efficient option for companies seeking to keep costs in check.”
The business centre is also home to the North West Joint Improvement Partnership along with the NHS, which is one of the building’s conventional office tenants.
