We are pleased to announce an exciting new phase for Xoomworks’ London Office – effective from May 1st we are taking an 8-person office and additional hot-desks in the Work.Life Fitzrovia shared working space.
Tom Ruck, our Senior Operations Manager, spent a lot of time looking at different options to find the best fit for us; as mentioned in a previous XT blog post. The way we use the office in London has changed drastically over the last few years and the Work.Life Fitzrovia offices meet all the requirements of the Xoomworks of 2019.
We considered a number of solutions options, including moving to a new dedicated office, but ultimately came to the conclusion that a shared working environment would be better suited to our needs.
Market trends showed us that more and more businesses were embracing the shared workspace ethos – a 2018 report from Cushman & Wakefield showed that London remains the global capital for co-working spaces and that Central London saw 2.5 million square feet leased to flexible workspace providers in 2017 – an increase of 190% on the previous year.
Commercially it made a lot of sense to go down this route. Why spend money on a space that is not being used to its full potential, when we can just take space we really need and that space is kept up to date with the most current co-working design concepts?
The bulk of the London team are consultants who either work from home or on client site or overseas in our European offices, meaning the need to actually host all of them in a dedicated office is limited to a handful of times a year.
Some of the other important factors in us signing up to Work.Life, which reflect XT priorities, were: the freedom and flexibility to work as we need to; support for our ‘borderless’ approach to business; the importance placed on community and bringing people together and the provision of a modern and dynamic workspace to do it all in.
Our new address is:
Xoomworks Ltd, c/o Work.Life, 33 Foley Street, London, W1W 7TL
We’re really excited to be moving into this new phase for the London team and we are confident our association with Work.Life will be a long and exciting one.
