Help – I can’t find you!
We are at 3/11 Ireland Street, above the Thai restaurant, and access to the coworking is from the rear of the building. Look for the Buckley’s sign, and go through the door with the stained glass and up the stairs.
This is a brilliant space with more room for coworkers and lots of different environments to suit your work style. We hope you love it.
What is a coworking space?
The short answer is this: A coworking space provides a flexible, shared office environment where you can thrive and get work done.
But coworking spaces, like Bright Coworking, provide more than just office space. For some, they are sanctuaries from the noise and distractions of home so you can really be productive. For others, they are community centres where you can share skills and ideas with coworkers you never had before.
What are the benefits of working in a coworking space?
Everyone from self-employed freelancers and business owners to big corporate teams find coworking spaces useful. Why? Because coworking offers flexibility and a better work-life balance.
That’s not all, it gives you the opportunity to work in an innovative environment alongside people with a huge range of skills. So, you gain instant access to skills you never knew your business needed.
Do I need to be a member to use Bright Coworking Space?
