Despite the economic downturn, a Lichfield business centre is bucking the trend by seeing all 25 of its offices occupied.

The Lichfield Business Village at the Staffordshire University site in the city lets the offices to small and medium-sized companies.

And they have proved so successful that they have had to create a waiting list for firms wanting to locate themselves at the site.

Lichfield Business Village manager Guy Gibson explained:

“In uncertain economic times, the flexibility and longevity offered by the Staffordshire University Business Villages makes running a business a lot easier than it used to be.

“Our package offers an end to long tie-ins and surprise bills so whether people are looking to make the first step away from running a business at home, or looking to downsize in order to weather the storm we have the solutions.”

Companies at the site have their own private office with all associated costs included such as business rates, utilities, furniture, PCs with software package, internet access and meeting room use.

Among the firms already based at the Lichfield Business Village are First Lessons, a new comparison website for driving instructores, and call centre recruitment consultancy Douglas Jackson.
