We've just marked ten years of innovation and growth at Farnell Clarke, and have celebrated with the completion of a dramatic office refurbishment, revealing our new-look premises at Delft Way, Norwich, to clients and the media earlier this week.(Did you spot our story in the EDP?)
As accountants who like to do different, the Farnell Clarke office now features the unusual (but very welcome) addition of an on-site pub - The Tax & Pounds - which opens at 4pm every Friday. Thanks to Laura Johnson for suggesting the winning name in our recent social media competition!
Our revamped offices (designed by Norwich firm Bluespace) also provide a flexible, inspirational and practical working space. There are themed meeting rooms including The Beach Hut, The Quayside and The Library, plus sound-proofed seating areas and private work pods to encourage agile working and team collaboration.
Frankie Kay is our client relationship director, and explains: “We’ve invested significantly in the transformation of our offices for several reasons. Firstly, the design and layout is different from a typical accountancy practice to allow us to work more efficiently; with minimal clutter. But it is also packed full of personality with extra design touches such as our on-site pub which is open for staff drinks every Friday from 4pm.
“To thrive, we must attract the best staff and retain our most talented, skilled team members, and we hope this new environment is somewhere people will enjoy working. It’s important to retain professionalism too, so the space is also very client friendly, with soundproof pods and meeting rooms so our clients can catch up on emails in a quiet space or enjoy a change of scenery and work from our office if they want to."
Our door is always open for visitors. If you're nearby, please pop in for a pint! Or watch this great report by Mustard TV to take a look around.Back to Company news
