Two cool new offices for Forward Role

Author: Steve Thompson

Over the last year our business has increased dramatically and with an influx of new hires we were bursting at the seams at our Bolton offices so we needed to move to larger premises.  Not wanting to move far, we were lucky enough to find a perfect space across the car park – we certainly got some strange looks as we wheeled our chairs across to our new home!

We wanted to make our new office an exciting and interesting place for both staff and visitors, so, taking our inspiration from some of our clients’ recent moves, we’ve included some fun elements.  Top clients Missguided and were both in the news recently for their funky and cool offices – we may not be as big as them (or have their budgets!) but we’d like to think that with a bit of imagination we’ve achieved our goal.

On entering the office, the first thing our visitors are greeted with is our ‘Wall of Fame’ which displays logos of our key clients and case studies.  Our values are very important to us so these are also on display in our reception area to remind us all what is important to our business.

In our boardroom, we’ve got a timeline illustrating the key milestones in the history of Forward Role - from an office in MD Steve’s bedroom with Peeps the Cat - to today’s office with space for 30 ‘Forward Rollers’. There’s also imagery showing the evolution of our brand mascot ‘Roland’.

We all know that ‘All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy’ so injecting fun into our new space was an important part of our plans.  There’s a large break out area with beach hut themed kitchen, picnic table and pool table for that much needed down time.
Our recent expansion into the Agency sector needed a greater presence in Manchester City Centre, so yet another office move was organised to move our Manchester office into Spinningfields, just in time to take advantage of the gluhwein and bratwurst at the Christmas markets. Our agency team have a 1960’s ‘Mad Men’ style office, complete with red leather chesterfields to kick back in – although our drinks cabinet is limited to Vimto, Tea and Coffee!
