Here at Hunted we are BIG fans of community working spaces. They’re perfect for Recruitment! But what is the best of the best? The creme de la crème? The top dog? The Kingpin?
With central offices all over the world including Colombia, Singapore, the US, Peru and of course London, WeWork has been created with one mission in mind:
“Create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living.”
But how have they done this?
WeWork believes that productive workspaces now require not just coffee, but also yoga. Not just printers, but also art installations. They’ve developed offices that are inspired by home comforts but also the productivity hacks of the modern workplace.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. But you can recruit from anywhere. Just give me a phone and a laptop and I’m sorted. So how can WeWork really make a difference to recruitment?
Apart from benefiting from Central Locations so that candidates and clients are only a stone’s throw away from you, you’ll also benefit from the WeWork Community. This includes networking events and a messaging platform to connect your business with sector experts… And maybe find your next candidate.
With free beer, free coffee, free cocktails, free breakfasts… and other free stuff, WeWork is a great environment to spend the long hours of recruitment in. Here are 5 of our partners that are reaping the benefits of WeWork spaces.
WeWork Los Angeles.
Intelletec are massive fans of WeWork. They find it creates an original working space for them to accentuate their brand and gives them the flexibility to grow their team as needed.
With great breakout workspaces and a lounge downstairs, it creates the perfect environment when you need some time away from your desk to get the busy work done.
Plus you’re surrounded by fellow start-ups!
WeWork Chancery Lane.
DNA love WeWork due to the variety of working environments to choose from. When not at your desk, you have 4 different floors and spaces to settle into your work. There’s even the option to work from a different WeWork building as well if cutting your commute a couple of days a week is needed. And you can’t forget the WeWork beer on tap that the DNA team love to tuck in to on a Thursday.
WeWork South Bank.
Yellow Cat are nestled amongst some of London’s best bars, restaurants and have amazing views of the city. With the Tate Modern, Southbank Centre and IMAX cinema on their doorstep, you’re in a great location to meet up with friends or go out with co-workers after work. This co-working space offers great perks, like bike storage, showers, pet-friendly attitude so you might see some office dogs wondering around, free beer and free coffee.
They wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!

Tom Thorne, Founder of Silverdrum, loves the environment WeWork provide. Being surrounded by other growing businesses, especially as many are in relevant sectors to those that he specialises in – digital advertising, media and marketing. It’s a massive advantage. Silverdrum also love that it’s just a cool building. Aesthetics aren’t everything, but having a plush environment with cracking views and plenty of events going on to keep you entertained during the day does help.
