MWC simply stands for Managed Workspace Centre. Our MWC’s are aimed at helping small and starter business to establish and grow. The Centres provide a simple easy-in/easy-out property solution wrapped with on-site services and business advice. They foster a thriving business community where like minded people get support and encouragement from each other, sharing experiences and strife!

Our 3 centres provide a range of workspace:  workshops, offices, and studios of various shapes and sizes which is perfect for SME’s wanting to grow and expand within our centres. When the time comes to move on, Hull City Council also has a large commercial portfolio of small factory units, shops and offices spread across the city on which we can provide you with details.

Our Managed Workspace team is dedicated to helping your business thrive. By joining one of our Business Centres, you don’t just get an Office or Workspace, you get a support team dedicated to helping you. We provide onsite business support and advice to help you establish and grow your business. Whether you are just starting out or growing your existing business we’re here to help you reach your goals.

Hull City Council pioneered the development of MWC’s starting in the 1980’s and since that time we have seen many businesses start, grow and thrive. Our aim is to accommodate new businesses, SME’s and businesses looking for help in order to survive in today’s difficult and challenging market. We look to help grow companies in a un-forced manner  towards being able to take on new staff and then moving on to bigger and better things, replacing them with the next generation of starter businesses.
