Discover The Various Types of Office Space to Rent in Liverpool

PUBLISHED 04/30/2018

Whether you run a startup or your business is expanding and looking for extra premises, one thing you may have considered is renting office space. Knowing exactly what you require can be difficult, though, as there are so many options available to choose from – often with little information to hand to explain what you get for your money. The corporate hospitality sector has boomed in recent years as more and more individuals choose to work in a freelance capacity and exciting new start-up businesses continue to blossom.

Signature Works consists of a team of hospitality and co-working space specialists, and because we know very well how difficult this process can be, we have put together this short list of terms you might come across when looking for your perfect office space. Each comes with an explanation to ensure that you can make an informed choice when it comes to choosing an office space in Liverpool.

Serviced Offices


These are usually typical private office spaces, managed, let and maintained by Signature Works. You can usually choose from several different available sizes and layouts. Your bills are included, and you do not have to adhere to a firm long-term contract – all payments are on a rolling monthly basis.

You will also have access various meeting rooms and breakout spaces throughout the building. Choose serviced offices if the routine of a regular office space appeals to you, but you are yet to obtain your own business premises in Liverpool.


Shared Office Space


If you are a little more flexible, then a shared office space at one of our locations in Liverpool city centre will be perfect for you. Your workspace will not be for your own exclusive use but will consist of a space that is shared with other like-minded workers and businesses.

The shared office space from Signature Works will also often feature all the amenities you require for your working day, including bookable meeting rooms and break out spaces, which are perfect for working on networking opportunities or for hosting client meetings. Choose a shared office space in Liverpool if you enjoy working alongside other companies and you do not tend to adhere to a typical nine to five routine.

Co-Working Spaces


Co-working spaces in Liverpool from Signature Works offers similar options to shared office spaces, but the difference is that often they are regularly used by freelancers and smaller startups, as co-working offers an attractive alternative to working from home.

The networking opportunities are still there, and you can pay per head for use of space, so it is easy to keep track of your overheads. Choose a co-working space if you have a team of fluctuating size, you require a strong element of flexibility and you want to build on networking opportunities that you would otherwise not have by working from home.

Hot Desking


With Hot Desking, you only pay for the time you wish to spend in the space, so you can work remotely or from your chosen premises or home. At Signature Works locations in Liverpool, multiple users may be in the space with you, which will not doubt produce numerous opportunities for networking and finding new clients. Our hot spaces in Liverpool are amongst our most flexible and popular options to we offer.

You will still be able to enjoy all the amenities of a regular office too, so choose a hot desking space if you do not have a set routine and you enjoy working with a wide range of individuals.
