They say you should start the New Year as you mean to go on — and if January has been anything to go by, then 2020 looks set to be our biggest and best year yet.
The first month of the new decade saw us finally move into our brand new Cardiff HQ — and it already feels like home.
Conveniently located off Ocean Way, the new office gives us a cutting edge work environment, which was designed by our MD, Will, in collaboration with a pro interior designer.
Inspired by the WebBox brand’s core values, our new 5,000 square foot workspace includes spacious open plans areas, two work pods, meeting rooms, a kitchen, breakfast bar and breakout areas where we can step away from our devices and manage our screen time. It also gives us the space we need to carry out a series of on-site training workshops, which we’ll be rolling out later this year.
As an added bonus, the new Cardiff HQ is also a stone’s throw from both Subway and Greggs, so although the New Year’s resolutions relating to growth may still be going strong, we feel the diet goals may be in danger.
But back to the move…
Upping sticks has been a long time coming (and we've been waiting patiently for the right office to pop up). Our signature approach to all things digital benefits our clients in tangible ways, and demand for our services was up well above average in 2019. And there's no sign of it slowing down. We’ve already kickstarted 2020 with some exciting new projects (which we’ll be announcing very soon), and some brand new career opportunities, too.
That’s right, a larger HQ and higher demand for our digital services mean we’re also expanding our team of experts. We’ve recently hired a content pro to cover everything from copywriting and content strategy to tone of voice workshops and brand messaging. We’re also on the hunt for a Cardiff-based developer, a project manager and a digital marketing manager to join the WebBox team. If you think that you (or someone you know) has what it takes to join the fast-paced world of digital, you can find out more about these exciting opportunities over on the careers page or by simply clicking here.
But despite the exciting developments, you can bet that, as a brand, we’ll be sticking to the ethos that’s got us here — which is to keep delivering digital solutions that continue to go above and beyond our clients’ expectations.
So, while we head off to plan the official launch party of our new Cardiff HQ (keep your eyes peeled for details landing soon), we’ll give the last words to our MD, Will, whose hard work, vision, and sheer determination is what’s driven WebBox to where we are today.
Take it away, Will!
“I couldn’t be prouder of the team and the way that we’ve consistently put service levels at the forefront of what we do. When I started WebBox in 2008, my vision was to grow a digital agency that really listened and put exceptional service at the heart of its offering.
“We’ve continued to keep this ethos at the heart of WebBox, and I really do believe that it’s this approach that’s earned us our exceptional client base.
“Here’s to yet another year of going above and beyond!”
