Desk Team is an independent serviced office provider, established in 2017, to provide flexible, affordable workspace to small and medium sized businesses. Desk Team was started with £750, a few desks, a small Wi-Fi router, a derelict building in Beckenham, and a lot of passion!
We work closely with our clients, tailoring our services to ensure they get the support they need. Our competitors thought we were crazy to offer our clients a rolling 30-day contract in 2017, but we knew that if we offered flexibility and took away the worry and liability, they would stay.
Putting our expertise
to good use
Our founder, Sharon Millar, has an extensive 30+ years’ experience, as a commercial property accountant, and understands the difficulties that small businesses can face. In addition to this, we are connected with a huge range of industry experts, so our clients benefit from a wealth of expertise, in the form of help with accounting, marketing, networking and brainstorming sessions.
We know how important it is to be part of a thriving community. Our centre coordinators create a welcoming environment for all our clients and take the time to learn about their businesses and requirements. This helps us to form connections between the businesses that use our facilities, encouraging them to collaborate, develop new skills, and find suitable clients for one another.
Having experienced many of the frustrations associated with running a business, we make sure that our clients benefit from simple, adaptable services. Our services can accommodate a wide range of requirements and develop alongside our clients’ businesses, whether their office needs increase or decrease. We develop long-term relationships with our clients, even if they are on a 30-day rolling contract.
Helping businesses to
We remember what it’s like to start a new business and we’re committed to helping those who embark on this journey. In 2018, we established the Desk Team Small Business Start-up Scheme to support new businesses during their first year of trading and help them join our community.
