Here are a few things to consider when searching for the perfect workspace:
1. Is your new office space adaptable?
To future-proof your business, ensure that the office you’re moving into is adaptable so that when your business expands, you have ample room for growth.
2. How well-connected is your new office?
If you’re relocating to central London, there's a very good chance your new office will be well-connected in terms of transport. But it’s always good to do your research beforehand to make sure your new office is conveniently located. Find out what are the nearest underground or train stations, bus stops and links to the airport if necessary.
3. Who are your neighbours?
Consider the location of your competitors - are they nearby? Will this affect your business? A little competition is healthy, though, so don’t let this put you off totally. Remember, you want to be surrounded by like-minded individuals and similar industries.
4. What’s the nature of your business?
For example, if you’re in the media sector, Soho has long been associated with media-related businesses, including advertising and television production firms. In Canary Wharf you’ll find banking and financial services, and tech firms at the Silicon Roundabout in Shoreditch.
