This week the Forward Role Manchester team moved. Again.
In November 2015 we opened our new Manchester office at the top of Spinningfields after an expansion of the team and the addition of our new agency proposition.
And now 5 months later, we’ve seen so much growth in Manchester that we needed to start looking for a bigger space. So when our lovely neighbours, Four Financial, said that they were moving to a new mega office back in Bolton, we jumped at the opportunity to take on their larger office and interview suites.
Although only moving across the corridor, the move was meticulously planned by our Marketing and Ops team, and they came up with the great idea of completing the move with as much help as possible from our own team and some of our fabulous clients. So, armed with lots of coffee, pastries, paint, rollers, team T-shirts and upcycled fancy dress ghostbusters overalls, the ‘Forward Rollers’ rocked up on Saturday Morning and were put to work. We painted, flat packed, rearranged the breakout area around 17 times and we were almost there.
We got some AMAZING wall paper from two of our brilliant clients for the feature walls in our meeting rooms.
CWV Wallcoverings (www.wallpapers-uk.com) sent us some wallpaper by Coloroll called ‘Heritage of the North’ for our first interview suite representing the Northern Power House with images and signs of some of the glorious areas of the North (no that isn’t the Eiffel Tower…).
In our other interview suite Graham and Brown (www.grahambrown.com) provided us with some fabulous ‘Londonium’ wallpaper which is a nod to the increasing amount of work we’ve been doing in the capital, particularly in our FR Executive division.
A big thanks to all the clients who helped us with the office and to the FR team for their efforts! Thanks too to all of our clients, without whom we wouldn’t be growing at such a rate of knots.
Thank you also to our IT guys, Cloud 10, who really went that extra mile to help make the move as seamless as possible.
All in all, we blooming love our new office, so if you are passing and want to pop in for a chat about your next career move or just say hello, please pop in. We have chocolate (lots of it) and fresh coffee!
