The flexible space revolution shows no sign of slowing, with recruitment business Talentful working with OBI’s Managed Workspace desk to complete a move to Bruntwood’s Lowry House.

Talentful provides flexible, in-house talent acquisition teams for its clients, working with scale-ups and start-ups to develop winning teams. For talented individuals searching for the right fit, the business will soon launch its bespoke culture-matching platform.

Also boasting offices in London and soon to be Berlin with further geographical expansion planned in the coming year, Talentful opened in Manchester in early 2018. Working on a subscription basis rather than commission, it is now ramping up its presence in the city and further plans for new geographical offices in 2019.

Bruntwood has just launched a £50m customer-focussed transformation programme across the North and Midlands. Talentful’s space on the newly refurbished 6th floor at Lowry House, located off Market Street in Manchester city centre, forms the first part of wider plans for the building. Joe Averill, of OBI’s Managed Workspace team, said: “Talentful have made a serious impact since opening in Manchester, and it’s been great to work with the team on their workspace requirement.

“Start-up and scale-up businesses looking for managed workspace in Manchester have some great options, and Lowry House provides a good solution. We are working with an increasing number of exciting businesses that are seeking fully fitted, managed real estate solutions.

Liam Waite, director of Talentful in Manchester, said: “We’ve had a great start to life in Manchester, finding that there’s a wealth of exciting companies looking for the individuals to help them grow; and a stream of talented people keen to make a difference.

“We feel that it’s time for us to move to a space that we believe can support Talentful in moving to the next level. We feel that Lowry House has what we’re looking for and we’re really looking forward to making connections in our new home.”
