Global workspace provider Regus will open its the doors to its first business centre in Wakefield on Monday.
The facility is located on the first floor of the bustling Trinity Walk retail development in the heart of Wakefield city centre. The nearby city bus station and inner ring road (A61) provide excellent transport links, as does the site’s close proximity to Westgate and Kirkgate stations.
The centre houses over 80 workstations and offers a range of flexible working options for businesses and professionals. These include meeting rooms which are bookable by the hour, a dedicated, drop-in business lounge, office space, day offices and virtual office services.
Regus expects the facility to be popular with a wide range of users including local small businesses, start-ups and remote workers as well as national firms opening satellite offices and global businesses establishing a footprint in the local area.
Richard Morris, UK CEO, Regus, comments: “We’re delighted to announce the opening of our first Wakefield location which will cater to the growing demand amongst the city’s professionals for more flexible, cost-effective workspace.
“We know that more and more people are working flexibly, instead of being constrained to the traditional 9-5 in the office. Consequently we are seeing consistent growth of interest in flexible working options which provide a more cost effective alternative to fixed offices.
“The city of Wakefield is undergoing immense regeneration and is a prime spot for businesses looking for a well-connected, ‘up and coming’ location, so it’s only right that it features in our UK expansion plans.”
