Open-plan office space is a relatively new and exciting way to work, allowing freelancers, remote workers and other independent professionals to work together in a shared, communal setting.
Working in a shared space provides freedom, flexibility and opportunities many may not receive if they were working from home or in a private office.
Signature Works launched earlier this year with their first office in the Bling Bling Building on Hanover Street. This office space immediately provided members with a stylish, state of the art, Grade A office space in the heart of Liverpool city centre.F
Grade A office space was lacking in Liverpool and therefore the city had really fallen behind in terms of its offering to freelancers and small businesses, especially when being compared to cities such as Manchester, Leeds and London. Signature Works has worked hard to quickly rectify this and has since provided Liverpool with stylish open-plan offices, but with the additional benefits and contacts of a large, well-establish company.
Business is all about contacts and connectivity and Signature Works is the perfect shared space to achieve both of those things.
Many co-working offices are created and managed by a company who have no further connections outside of its members. Signature Works is different as it is a direct partner of the Signature Living Group and therefore instantly provides invaluable benefits.
As well as connecting with other members in the office from all sectors of business, Signature Works gives you direct access to Signature Living, its staff, suppliers and founders, a benefit which is unheard of with any other hot-desking spaces.
Signature Works offers three tiers of connectivity through its membership.
The first level of connectivity is peer to peer between our members. Coming from all walks of life, industry and skills, Signature Works is the perfect environment to meet new people, build business contacts and help you grow your business.
Our community managers are here to help you connect with other members, make important introductions and help you work together.
The second level of connectivity is that you will be working directly and indirectly with members of the Signature Living Group and our suppliers. We currently employ over 750 staff and have a goal of raising that number to 1200 in a 12-month period as we continue to expand and open new developments.
We are the fastest growing and most exciting developer and operator in Liverpool and have a wealth of contacts. From lawyers to consultants, printers to contractors, we partner with some of the best businesses and individuals in the UK and by becoming a member at Signature Works, you will naturally have access to these contacts and the opportunity for our suppliers to become your suppliers is very possible. We are quickly moving to other UK cities and working directly with even more external suppliers which further our connectivity and improves the potential for your business to thrive in different cities and locations.
The third, and possibly the most exciting level of connectivity is one which could truly help members to thrive and give their business a real push.
There truly is no limit to our growth and as we expand we are always on the lookout for new suppliers to help us continue to deliver amazing service, the very best developments and exceptional marketing campaigns.
Signature Works members automatically have access to key contacts within the Signature Living team, including myself as I host a regular Q&A within the Signature Works office where I meet with members, discuss business and offer my advice.
There is huge potential for Signature Works members to gain some of our lucrative contracts and work with us directly as a supplier in many areas of the business including planning, development, online and marketing.
The benefit of being a flexible partner is completely unique to Signature Works and is something which has the potential to be a catalyst for a young business.
As well as the benefits of connectivity at Signature Works, there are also a host of other benefits associated with becoming a member.
We understand that flexibility is key to start-up businesses and freelancers, which is why all of our membership contracts are flexible, offering you the opportunity to commit to a time period of your choosing.
We furthermore offer exclusive trail days to give you the time to decide if Signature Works is perfect for you. This includes full use of our facilities the opportunity to meet our community managers and really get a feel for the unique environment at Signature Works.
Each and every Signature Works member receives a Privilege Card with their membership. Filled with exclusive offers and discounts, the Privilege Card is filled with some of Liverpool’s top bars, restaurants and business services including printers and graphic designers.
Members will also be able to enjoy up to 20% off at Signature Living venues including our hotel rooms, bars and restaurants as well as Signature Fit Club, our boutique gym on Old Hall Street in Liverpool.

The Signature Works Incubator Panel is a direct opportunity for members to get their ideas and business proposals heard by established leaders in the industry.
With an aim to accelerate growth through connections you make at our shared offices, the Incubator Panel will furthermore give you the opportunity to access the funding you need to make things happen. By pitching your ideas to the right people and showing your business to mentors, the Incubator Panel can help you to really get ahead and grow your business in an invaluable way.
The Signature Works Incubator Panel is backed by a £500k Venture Capital Fund and invited panellists, who will be selected just for you, will have the knowledge and vision to understand your business.
In 2016, Liverpool was named the UK’s most entrepreneurial city by Instant Offices and this is something I believe we should really be championing and encouraging, and I’m proud to say that Signature Works does exactly that.
If you’re a freelancer, remote worker or own a small or medium-sized business then Signature Works may be the perfect space for you. To discuss becoming a Signature Works member or to enjoy a free trial, simply click here, call 0151 558 1566 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
