Creative Space Celebrates Good Work Award

Property management and urban regeneration consultancy Creative Space Management, has been awarded the prestigious ‘Good Work Pledge’ standard by North of Tyne Combined Authority. 

This award affirms that Creative Space is a business working hard to make sure our employees are happy, healthy and well rewarded for the work that we do. We are part of a growing community committed to the pursuit of good work and sustainable jobs in the region. 

Creative Space manages three buildings in Newcastle; High Bridge Works, contemporary studio and gallery space in the city centre, and workspaces The Lumen and The Core, both located within the 24-acre Newcastle Helix development. Helix is one of Europe’s most exciting innovation hubs where researchers and businesses co-locate with residents in a state-of-the-art city centre quarter.  

The consultancy arm of our business also works directly with public and private sector organisations across the North of England, to stimulate the economy through ambitious urban regeneration projects. 

A progressive employer that is committed to the principles of cooperation and sustainability, Creative Space is an Employee Ownership Trust company, which means that all team-members have a stake in the business, better access to information and collective responsibilities for success. Tomorrow is Employee Ownership Day and as advocates of this approach, the Creative Space team will be celebrating together and joining the national conversation to showcase the benefits.   This latest award from North of Tyne further cements our commitment to invest in good employee practices now and in the future. 

The North of Tyne is a great place to live, work and do business and The Good Work Pledge is a Combined Authority initiative designed to grow a community of employers that are committed to well-paid, fair, inclusive and sustainable employment opportunities. 

Of the new award, Creative Space Managment’s Regional Property Director, Sarah Wilson, said: “We are proud to champion good work practices across the North East and are committed to supporting the North of Tyne Combined Authority to grow this network of employers. We believe it is our responsibility to promote fair pay, employee development and mobility as well as good physical and mental wellbeing in the workplace. ” 

The Creative Space team has substantial experience assisting asset owners and city stakeholders to appraise the viability of workspaces and regeneration initiatives, develop business plans and convert them into successful and sustainable projects.

what our clients say

The energy, vision and enthusiasm that Toby and Paul brought to the project within a very challenging timescale were of great importance in helping GYBC secure grants of over £6m to enable works to begin on conversion of the Grade 1 listed St. George’s Chapel. The highly credible outline Business Plan has proved to be a sound basis for developing a viable enterprise, enabling work to commence on site with a high level of confidence.
