New co-working space to open in Nottingham

Virgin Money is set to open a new public co-working and events space at its Smith Row outlet in Nottingham city centre.

The move follows the successful introduction of similar initiatives at Virgin Money stores in Edinburgh, Norwich, Dewsbury, Leeds, Wakefield, Bradford and York.

The open-plan space will provide customers and members of the community with a place to meet and work free of charge.

The concept is also being rolled out to stores in Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Kensington, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, Haymarket (London) and Cardiff.

Influenced by the company’s “A Life More Virgin” flexible working policy, each space will include free wi-fi, bookable desks, collaboration areas and private meeting rooms.

Lyn Rose, head of store network and customer inclusion at Virgin Money, said: Our flexible working approach, A Life More Virgin, is built on the idea that the old rules around where, when and how we work don’t apply anymore. We’ve extended this approach to our network of stores around the UK and taken a fresh look at how we can offer great spaces which bring people together, unleash creativity and build a sense of community, while showcasing the very best of our brand.”
