CBRE expands it's flexible office offer to the Midlands

As the flexible office market in the UK continues to expand at a rapid pace, so does our team!

Welcome Dan White, our new Flexible Office Advisor for the Midlands!

As the flexible office market in the UK continues to expand at a rapid pace, so does our team.

CBRE is the first property consultancy to appoint a dedicated Flexible Office Advisor in Birmingham, in response to the growing demand for flexible office options in the city. Currently, around six per cent of the total available office stock in Birmingham is flexible. In the foreseeable future, CBRE anticipates that flexible office space will account for around 15 per cent of total stock, with new operators targeting the city.

Daniel joins the firm from PropRec, a recruitment consultancy based in the Midlands where he specialised in the flexible office sector. In his new role, he will advise occupiers, operators and investors on the flexible office market in Birmingham and the Midlands.

Will Ventham, senior director and head of CBRE’s Birmingham office agency team, said: “Daniel’s expertise amplifies our existing capability and builds upon CBRE’s full service offering to both our investor and occupier client base throughout the Midlands. Having built a career in the sector in the Midlands, Daniel is perfectly equipped to support CBRE’s already established Flexible Workplace team and broaden our geographical reach.

Birmingham continues to experience increasing demand from both established and new entry serviced providers and this trend, coupled with an increasing appetite from SMEs in the Midlands, offers an enviable platform from which to grow our offer."

We caught up with Dan to chat about his new role, the evolution of the flexible office market in The Midlands and why occupiers should be considering flex.
