Recruitment firm finds new Derby home

East Midlands-based EMBS is the latest business to take a new furnished office at Friar Gate Studios, the flagship building of the Connect Derby managed workspace scheme.

Founded in 2003, EMBS, the recruitment services business, has clients throughout the UK and has placed thousands of candidates with hundreds of employers. Its team work in the technology, property, engineering and manufacturing sectors and other specialised markets.

The changing recruitment market brought about as a result of the pandemic presented directors Simon Bucknell and Ian Stevens with the opportunity to rethink their strategy for the business. Working in collaboration with their team, they took the decision to adopt a hybrid working practice and move back into the city centre.

EMBS have taken one of nine newly refurbished, fully furnished offices at Friar Gate Studios on Ford Street.

The fully furnished office accommodation is available for up to six months. At the end of the initial tenancy, EMBS will be able to take a permanent office at any of Connect Derby’s workspaces across the city.

Commenting the move to Friar Gate Studios, Simon Bucknell, director of EMBS, said: “While working from home has its merits, our staff still want to work together in the office for learning and development and to collaborate with their colleagues. Friar Gate Studios offers us the perfect opportunity to have a flexible office hub and we absolutely love it.”

Ann Bhatti, head of Connect Derby, added: “I’d like to welcome Simon, Ian and their team to the Connect Derby family. Our fully-furnished offices are the perfect solution for businesses like EMBS, who are reviewing their property strategies and want a high quality base for their business while they are deciding how much office space they are going to need going forward.”
