Careers at Forward Space


It’s work but not as you know it.

In 2007 we embarked on a mission to revolutionise the way we work. We pioneered coworking and shared workspace in regional towns and cities. Spaces for people who want to work for themselves, just not by themselves.

We own remarkable workspaces for smart-thinking entrepreneurs, creative start-ups and ambitious small businesses. And although we don’t like to shout about it we are recognised as one of the leading operators of shared workspace in the SW.

We create inclusive, collaborative communities of like-minded people doing exciting things. We work really hard to curate the right talent, energy and resources to create an environment in which you feel inspired and are successful.

Because your workspace should be more than just a place you go to work.

We do things differently.

We insist on our workspaces being in the town centre – so you can walk, cycle or get the bus to them. We invest heavily in our buildings – each one is individually designed. So if it looks like a shed on a faceless edge-of-town business park it won’t be one of ours. It’s just not our thing.

We tailor the workspace to include co-working, full-time desks, workpods and studios. And to make sure you don’t spend all your time at your desk we wrap them around a hub consisting of cafe, lounge, garden, shared resources, event spaces and meeting rooms.

We believe you should have fun at work. So we throw in a good dose of table-top football, deck chairs, hammocks, table tennis, beers and pizza on a Friday, cycling club, rounders in the park and loads of social events.

Because to be productive, you also need time out.
