Deep Business Centre geared up to welcome new ways of working

New arrivals and a new way of working are fuelling optimism at The Deep Business Centre.

New arrivals and a new way of working are fuelling optimism at The Deep Business Centre.

Freya Cross, Head of Business and Corporate at The Deep said the Centre welcomed two new clients during 2020, with a third expanding to take more space.

In her capacity as national Chair of the Flexible Space Association, Freya added that further positives are expected during 2021 with an increase in start-ups likely and with big businesses focusing on the potential of the regional locations.

Freya revealed that the Business Centre team provided additional support for the aquarium during 2020, at one point running the gift shop online and also setting up a private dining offer which proved very popular and will resume when restrictions permit.

She said: “Occupancy at the Business Centre fell but we only lost one company to the pandemic – they haven’t closed, they’re just working differently. Two left because of growth – moving on to the next stage of their development – but we also welcomed two new businesses and an existing client expanded into more space.

“For every client that has struggled, another has gained market share and we have worked hard looking our clients them by acting as their un-furloughed staff and keeping them up to date with business updates including details of grants.”

One of the new businesses, The Call Answering Company, relocated from its previous premises in Hessle during 2020 and began this year by moving into a larger office suite at The Deep Business Centre because of expansion.

Freya said: “During this year, as a result of job losses during 2020 we expect to see more people starting their own businesses and as a result of changes to the office environment we expect to see national businesses change how they work, either with more of a focus on regional offices or a hybrid solution. That reflects the clients we have attracted since we opened and we are confident we can meet the demand.”
