The womenswear etailer Missguided opened its new 45,000 square foot headquarters in Trafford Park, Manchester. The four-storey building houses the business’ 320 employees, 100 of whom have been hired in the last 12 months. The ground floor is a social space for staff and includes swings, arcade games, a ”selfie tunnel” and a coffee shop. Offices and an in-house studio are located beneath the top two floors, which feature open-plan working spaces.
Nitin Passi, Founder and Chief Executive of Missguided said: “Our new headquarters are a true embodiment of our brand, and reflect both the culture and spirit of Missguided. When I found this building, I was keen to ensure that there would be dedicated areas throughout that didn’t fit the mould of a traditional office set-up. Our ambition was to provide an inspirational and timeless working environment, where teams could enjoy themselves and feel at their most creative – and I think we achieved that with this office. I’m confident that it will be a great home for us for many years to come.”
