Birmingham-based Netcom, which is working in partnership with Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram on digital skills training. Is taking 1,570 sq ft of office space at the Cotton Exchange in a deal with Bruntwood Works.

It joins a number of digital and technology businesses at Cotton Exchange. The building is also home to other high-profile tenants including Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, Downtown in Business and Professional Liverpool.

Customers get free access to Bruntwood Works’ business support programme Spark. They also have the provision of an onsite community team to connect businesses and enhance opportunities for collaboration.

Kevin Vashi, managing director at Netcom, said:

“Over the coming months and years, we want to engage with a wide variety of businesses across the city region. In choosing our Liverpool office, Cotton Exchange was the standout candidate.

“Contemporary spaces such as the roof terrace, reception area and The Old Hall give us an excellent range of options and opportunities to collaborate with existing contacts and also to connect and work with a wide range of new organisations.”

Tony Reed, head of commercial at Bruntwood Works, added: “Netcom Training is embarking on a crucial programme to improve digital workplace skills through online training. It was important for the team to feel connected to the business community.

“Cotton Exchange is an energetic, connected environment where businesses have no shortage of opportunities to come together through well-organised and popular events. These include business advice clinics, skills seminars, networking drinks and seasonal celebrations.”
