What we offer

We’re situated in an old steel mill in the heart of Kelham Island; a super cool and vibrant upcoming part of Sheffield, so much so we made a video to showcase what it’s like to be based here.


We’re a 10 minute walk into the centre of town, 30 seconds from the tram route which links to the train station, giving easy access to Leeds, Manchester and the Midlands.



We have a beautiful office environment that you’ll get to make your home. We supply a host of free hot and cold drinks to keep you refreshed when working, along with a weekly supply of fresh fruit. We have a relaxing and calm environment that will allow you to do your best work.


We love being based in Sheffield. As a City it has everything you could wish for, from theatres, galleries, restaurants, live music, shopping facilities and plenty of open green spaces. With the Peak District National Park a few minutes away there’s little Sheffield doesn't have to offer.
