Mission Labs sets target to double its headcount over the next 12 months to over 200 employees.
Mission Labs Completes Move into New Manchester Headquarters.
April 13th, 2022
Mission Labs has officially moved into its new home!
Our new office headquarters, based in Manchester’s Arbeta building, is now open to staff following an office warming event in March 2022. The event marked the completion of a 9-month fit-out project, guaranteed to provide our growing team with first class office, meeting, social, and collaboration facilities.
Arbeta is a modern workspace for tech and creative businesses, based in the heart of Manchester, a city fast becoming a global hub for forward-thinking and high growth technology companies. Since 2016, Mission Labs have been working with modern cloud-based technologies and products, including business phone solution, CircleLoop, and customer experience desktop, SmartAgent; our move to Arbeta will allow us to accommodate our expanding team and pursue our ambitious growth plans.
A ground-breaking new space.
Designed and delivered by Nexus Workspaces, the office development commenced in May 2021 and now offers over 11,000 sq ft of newly refurbished space. As well as accommodating over 100 people, it also features a 60-person event space with theatre-style seating and immersive AV, multiple collaboration spaces including a dedicated training suite, quiet working zones with acoustic pods, and an onsite gym.
Our original HQ at Rawtenstall will also be retained as an office and meeting space for Lancashire-based colleagues.
To celebrate the completion of the Arbeta project, the Mission Labs team came together for an in-office event, offering a chance for colleagues to catch up in person whilst exploring their impressive new HQ. We were delighted to have so many of the team on site and to see them making the most of all the office features that will help them work together more effectively.
Mission Labs co-founder, Damian Hanson, said of the new office:
“We’re delighted to officially open our fantastic new headquarters at Arbeta. As we continue to rapidly create new roles and career opportunities, we know just how important a top-class working environment is for attracting and retaining talent in the North West, and our new HQ provides just that. This move supports plans for rapid growth of our products and services which serve thousands of customers from SMEs to Enterprise and Public Sector organisations.”
Rob Page, Managing Director at Arbeta added: “It is fantastic to welcome Mission Labs to Arbeta. The second-floor space has been completely transformed into a stunning environment with multiple options for people to work individually, in teams, and remotely, reflecting the rapid evolution of working arrangements over the last 18 months.”
The completion of the new office in Arbeta is a huge milestone for Mission Labs. Not only does it symbolise our growth as a company, but it enables us to move our ever-expanding team into a hybrid working environment.
This new office promises to provide Mission Labs colleagues with everything they need for maximum collaboration, productivity, wellbeing, and success. We can’t wait to see where it takes us in 2022 and beyond!
