The plan for Electric Works to become a hub of freelance workers and start-up companies in the creative and digital sector is coming to fruition, with the recent arrival of nine diverse organisations and individuals.
Award-winning radio producer Frances Byrnes, 351 Design and IT systems trouble-shooters ACR Consulting have joined the Electric Works ‘club’ which gives freelancers 24-hour access to a workspace with wi-fi, meeting areas and membership of the Electric Works creative community.
Four new start-up companies – Translytx, Logicatronics, Casamore and Faradion – and business performance specialists Caudata have all subscribed to the Electric Works virtual office services, giving them an address, phone answering and flexible use of office space.
The Electric Works club has also become the business home of Steve Faulkner from Distinctive Magic whose performances have taken him around the world and made him much in demand in many business sectors.
Electric Works manager Louise Jamieson says: “Part of the Electric Works ethos is to foster new and growing talent and the arrival of such diverse businesses en masse shows how the variety of flexible services suits their differing needs.’’
