Converted from a Victorian Warehouse, The Southborough Centre comes with character as standard. Modern work spaces have been sympathetically created within the warehouse walls to provide a beautiful juxtaposition between the old and the new. The centre is fully serviced with fibre broadband an onsite administrator and supported by nearby shops, pubs, restaurants and sports facilities.
Offering flexible terms the Southborough Centre can provide office spaces to fit your requirements. Our bespoke, adaptable workspaces mean you can get the perfect office size, for the right price, with no hidden costs.
All suites come with telephone lines installed, and broadband ready. We also have a large meeting and training room, seating up to 12, which is free to use for all tenants.
“We provide standard offices for 1-10 workstations and can often provide larger bespoke open-plan spaces when required as your business expands. Our light and airy offices are well decorated and come fully equipped, maintained and ready for immediate occupation.”
We work with many businesses who have been in the Southborough Centre for a number of years, we are pleased to call them partners. See below for their experiences of working in the Warehouse!
We’re delighted to be welcoming new tenants to our building, whether they’re looking to set up a satellite office location or starting afresh. We spoke to our newest tenant, audio design company Low Post Limited, to see how they’re getting on in their new space.
Low Post was founded by audio engineer and sound designer, Jack Townley, in August of this year. The audio production company provides a variety of services for its clients’ needs, meaning no day is the same for founder Jack.
“My day-to-day work really varies, from recording audio drama, to podcasts to adverts, as well as cleaning up audio,” he comments. Jack enjoys the range of work he is involved in, though, “The different aspects of my job really keep me on my toes. We’ve recently welcomed a baby into our family, so it’s nice to get lost in the variety instead of noticing how tired I am!”
Jack previously worked for a studio in London, which unfortunately ceased business due to coronavirus. Jack seized this opportunity and started off Low Post to specialise in audio post-production in a remote manner, adapting to the unpredictable situation.
“This office space really stood out when I was looking for accommodation. I came to the centre and met office manager Tracey, and was pleased at how affordable the space was.”
This move comes at a time when many companies are looking to migrate out of central London spaces, and Jack is enjoying the difference in dynamic. He comments, “Everyone’s been great. It’s a lot more relaxed than the London feel, and I’m really happy knowing that my wife and children are nearby, as we live locally.”
When thinking about the new year ahead, Jack is optimistic, “I would really like to maintain this level of success, and build on what we have at the moment. The economy is still quite unsure, so I’m eager to maintain business levels, and to think about expanding our clientele at some point next year.”
We wish Low Post a successful new year ahead in its time at the Southborough Centre – welcome to the building, Jack!
With the coronavirus crisis continuing to dominate our lives, we think it’s more important than ever to celebrate all good news. That’s why we’re especially excited to announce that we’ve got some new tenants in our serviced offices, which are centrally located between Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge. We’re looking forward to seeing some new faces in the building and for their teams to start building relationships with other local businesses in the building.
The financial services sector is a fast-paced one, with financial advisers, planners and wealth managers relying on a team of trusted paraplanners to help them with the technical administrative work that comes with the job, such as support work and research-report writing.
Haven Paraplanning offers paraplanning services for financial advisers who don’t have an in-house paraplanner, or whose paraplanners are struggling to keep up with their existing workload. In employing a Haven Paraplanner, firms are guaranteed to be working with a fully qualified paraplanner, who understands all the necessary industry terminology and compliance regulations.
Haven Paraplanning is headed by company Director, Andy Schleider, who set up the company just over a year ago. The business may be relatively new, but Andy is no newcomer to the sector: “We’ve only been properly going for just over a year now, but I’ve got over 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry, mainly working for big corporates”, he explains. “I decided to start up my own practice because I realised that there was a big demand for paraplanning services, but not enough supply. Owning my own practice also gives me greater flexibility.”
After just a year of working from home, Andy decided to take the plunge in committing to a more formal office space: “I’ve recently expanded the team by taking on a freelancer. The home office isn’t big enough anymore, especially given the current circumstances, where we need to be able to social distance”.
Andy decided that the serviced offices at the Southborough Centre appealed to him: “I like the fact that everything is included in the price and it was a lot cheaper than some of the other place I looked at. It’s convenient, clean and the people are friendly.” Haven Paraplanners are now one of the dozens of happy tenants at the Southborough Centre, all enjoying: short-term leases; free on-street parking; free bike racks and showers and free use of meeting rooms.
When looking to his business goals, Andy’s main aims are to start to expand his team: “I want to be able to take on a full-time member of staff, not just a freelancer”. Luckily, Haven Paraplanning’s new business accommodation accommodates this objective, with the office space in the Southborough Centre able to accommodate teams from two to 15 people, enabling a business’s space to grow alongside it.
