Towards the end of 2015 Reflex were acquired by Clarendon Business Centres and earlier this year they added another office firm to their growing portfolio. You may have heard of Circle Offices but unlike Reflex they will now be operating solely under the ‘Clarendon’ name and we for one, cannot wait to see what the future holds.
Circle Offices has been operating in and around Bishopsgate since 2005. Since then they’ve undertaken a £1.8 million refurb which saw the start of a brighter future for Circle and their clients. The refurb included a 70-desk increase and a change in decor to ensure their clients had the most efficient space to work in. Finally they implemented a refresh in modern technologies which is of course, key to business development. Since Circle Offices was founded they’ve built up an extremely credible brand. Taking this into account Clarendon have pulled out all the stops to ensure that this credibility is continued. Their head office will now be located in Oxford (along with the rest of Clarendon).
Although Circle Offices are undertaking a rebrand, their business strategy will remain the same. They will continue to operate a full range of services including, virtual offices which offers the handling of both client calls and emails. They also offer meeting rooms located around central London and other thriving locations where business’ who don’t have the right space available are able to hold client and customer meetings. As well as virtual offices and meeting rooms, Circle/Clarendon will of course still be offering standard serviced offices where you can expect a flexible and open relationship with the team.
Acquiring Circle offices obviously means a growth in the Clarendon portfolio, but that’s not to forget the team they are bringing on board who have been a part of making the Circle offices brand so successful for up to 12 years, so with this in mind we thought a few introductions were due:
Laura – The Centre Manager
Kaylee, Gemma and Naomi – Customer Service Assistants
Cliff – Sales Manager
We asked the team members to answer a few (random) questions to help our readers get a better understanding of the very helpful and open people behind the brand, so without further ado:
Cliff: Black,my clothes need to colour co-ordinate
Laura: Green – Because I need to represent the Irish 😊
Naomi: Yellow because I am the brightest in the box!
Gemma: Pink, because you can never have too much pink
Kaylee: Red because it is my favourite colour.
Cliff: My tennis clubs,when I walk in it’s like Cliff walking into the bar in ‘Cheers’ !
Laura: Sad to say my local Indian franchise – They know us by first name, know our order and give us a free beer every time we collect our food!
Naomi: Nandos. I go at least twice a week and they pretty much know my order every time!
Gemma: London Craft Markets, I am a designer/maker so it’s lovely to know so many other makers
Kaylee: The pub at the end of my road as I’m always in there in the summer.
Cliff: I’m an obsessive weekend woodworker
Laura: I can recognise the breed of a dog by its bark !! Its more weirdness than a talent I’d say
Naomi: I can eat endless amounts of chocolate rice crispy cakes!
Gemma: I can continuously watch The Good Wife whilst mainlining Cheese Doritos
Kaylee: Wouldn’t say I have a strange talent I’m just very clumsy!
