UK Flex Market Review 2022

Wednesday, 6 July, 2022

Flexibility is increasingly becoming a key strategic driver for businesses, in terms of future planning and gaining an edge in talent attraction. Our latest research shows that demand for flexible workspace is up 22% across the UK in 2021 y-o-y, with regional cities taking to the stage.


  • Contractual occupancy rates have remained above pre-pandemic levels for the third quarter in a row.
  • Many businesses – on the hunt for cost reduction - are incorporating regional hubs into their office portfolios, with Manchester and Leeds emerging as key business hotspots.
  • London is back and central areas are seeing demand levels return to those seen pre-pandemic, resulting in desk rates starting to rise sharply in the capital.
  • Flex is the driving force towards net zero, playing an important role in limiting the impact of offices on the environment and achieving the ambition of net zero buildings.
  • Landlords are leading the supply growth as many are incorporating flexible space into their offering to remain competitive.


Increased demand, a wider target audience and changes in occupier expectations are together causing the flexible workspace landscape across the UK to change at a phenomenal rate, creating a time of great opportunity for both providers and occupiers of flexible workspace alike. 

The UK flex market is leading a new era of workspace, with greater choice of product for the occupier. This means that for many companies the move to flex is no longer just a short-term solution, but a long-term business change, which will propel the UK flex industry into a new dimension.
