As the number of people turning to freelancing outpaces the overall growth in self-employment, a co-working space in Manchester will open its doors to the sector for free each week.
As the nearest work space to the city’s central King Street area, Work.Life has launched Freelancer Fridays giving consultants and small businesses use of the coworking space for free every Friday.
Entrepreneurs, starts up and freelancers will have access to the coworking spaces’ ground floor hot-desking facilities, private phone booths and social spaces, for work, meetings or networking, for free.
“We’ve always placed a huge emphasis on supporting entrepreneurialism and the workplace wellbeing of our members, and for those who are just starting their businesses it can be difficult to find office space and often too distracting to work from home,” explains Elliot Gold, co-founder at Work.Life.
“Our Freelancer Fridays mean anyone can come in, use the space and make connections that will help build their business as well as take part in any events hosted by our community. We’re really proud to launch this concept, and we’re excited to meet more of Manchester’s freelance community.”
Situated on Brown Street, Work.Life has become a firm favourite in the Manchester’s co-working scene since it opened in November.
Offering four levels of membership – Resident (private offices), Local (unlimited hot desking), Dedicated desks and Flex (pay-as-you-go hot desking), members already including Rullion and Cognition Education.
Freelancer Fridays take place every week from 9am – 5pm. Freelancers can register at work.life/freelancerfridays and are welcome on a first come, first served basis until maximum capacity has been reached.
