Location is Everything

It is true that the most important decision you will make will be the location of your offices.

Will the office be easily accessible for supplier, clients and employees? Do you expect a high number of deliveries and will you need a large amount of parking space?

Look for a location that has easy access to major road and motorway networks. This is particularly important if your business relies on product and materials to be delivered on a regular basis. Manchester has brilliant transport networks via road, rail and air.

Consider how dynamic the business community is in the area. Moving to prime business location can offer great contacts and help you to access your market. For new businesses choosing a city such as Manchester can provide great kudos and help an emerging business develop its credibility.

Extra Facilities

If you are looking at a business park, understand what is on offer. Are there parking facilities? Is there an onsite cafe or restaurant which will offer benefits to staff and also provide a great area to entertain clients? How is the business park managed? Is there a team that manages security, site maintenance and does it have a welcoming reception with well presented professional staff?

All these elements will help your business to establish itself as a serious contender in your market and leave clients and potential employees with a positive impression of your company.

5 Alternative Reasons to Rent an Office in Manchester

There are many great reasons to look for an office to rent in Manchester. It’s relatively central, cheaper than London, has excellent transport links, and to many it’s considered England’s “second city” (or third after Birmingham, perhaps. But we prefer Manchester.)

But these aren’t the only reasons to rent an office in Manchester…

Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) is based in Carrington, near Trafford, on the outskirts of Manchester. They provide offices for rent and a whole host of other services for small to medium-sized businesses. Here are a few of the less commonly-discussed reasons for choosing an office to rent in Manchester:

Manchester is renowned for its creativity

From the music of The Smiths to the animations of Cosgrove Hall, from the immense acting talent of John Thaw to the hilarious comedy of Les Dawson, so many creative stars hail from Manchester. It’s also home to many talented creative agencies, bands and artists today. If you’re a creative, or you’re just looking to find an office to rent in an area you’ll find inspiring, Manchester is the place to be.

Nowhere is cooler than Manchester (probably)

From the effortless class of George Best (arguably the finest footballer Manchester United ever saw) through to the 90s Britpop swagger of Oasis, Manchester is always at the cutting edge of cool. If your business is one that could benefit from the cool cachet of a Manchester address, it’s well worth considering renting your office in Manchester.

Manchester is the best place to live – official

For the second year running, in 2013 Manchester was voted the best UK city to live in an extensive worldwide survey. And all the things that make it such a great place to live also make it a fantastic place to work.

Manchester is incredibly multi-cultural

Whether you have grand plans to expand your business globally or you’d appreciate influences from a variety of cultural and geographical backgrounds, you could do much worse than rent your office in Manchester. It’s estimated that over 200 languages are spoken across Manchester, as people from all four corners of the globe choose Manchester to live, work and play.

Manchester is where you’ll find Carrington Business Park!

Of course, Manchester (and, more specifically, Carrington) is the home of Carrington Business Park, providers of affordable offices to rent.

Why Off-Site Training Is Much More Effective – And Much Less Hassle

Whether you’re carrying out mandatory, legally-required training or you just want to expand your team’s skillsets, regular staff training is a must. However, your offices may not be the best environment to hold your training sessions…

Based five minutes from the M60, on the outskirts of Manchester, Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) provide offices to rent of small to medium businesses – and they also offer superb workshop and training facilities on short-term leases. Here’s how taking advantages of their flexible training services can help you…

Isolation from distractions

When training, you’ll want everyone to give their undivided attention. Hold training sessions on-site and it’s all too easy for fellow colleagues to interrupt. It’s also far too easy for trainees to slip away to check calls or emails. Hold training off-site and you’ll keep such distractions to a minimum.

New environment – new ideas

Training often requires participants to “think outside the box” – so if you’re surrounded by the same old “box” of your office, the same old ideas may persist. A change of scenery can help focus the mind, open everyone up to new ideas, and help your trainees to bring their own new ideas to the table.

Bigger rooms for larger groups

Your office may not have a room that’s suitable for training. If you run a small or medium-sized business, you probably don’t have a bespoke training room – and if you’re bringing together staff from various different locations, you might not have a room large enough to accommodate everyone. Carrington Business Park have training rooms that can accommodate up to 60 people – or as few as eight.

Training rooms that can be accessed by all

Also of importance if people are travelling from far and wide is accessibility. Business parks tend to be easy to access – for example, Carrington Business Park is near the M6 and M60 motorways, is accessible by public transport from Manchester city centre, and Manchester Airport is also close by. What’s more, any attendees travelling by car can take advantage of free parking.

Flexibility – configured just for you

Bespoke training rooms such as the room offered by Carrington can easily be tailored to suit the format of your training sessions. The rooms can be laid out in several configurations, and the main conference room can even be split into two separate rooms. This means when training larger groups you could run two sessions at once – saving you time and money.

Practical workshop training

Carrington Business Park also offer a wide range of flexible workshop facilities – ideal if your training involves practical elements that require laboratory conditions or manufacturing processes. Workshops can be rented on flexible monthly agreements.

So whatever your training needs, Carrington Business Park can help you provide the perfect environment. Find out more about Carrington’s training facilities, workshops and offices to lease at www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk.

Need a Manchester-based Workshop? Need Space to Train? Talk to Carrington…

More than just workshop rental…

With Carrington Business Park, you get more than just workshop space with your monthly rental. A phone line, reception service, mail services and even security are all included in the price – not to mention free parking.

Need training before getting into the workshop?
