Going International: Hallam opens first EU Office

Posted on 15/09/2021 by Anna Murphy

We're committed to becoming a leading International agency and we've taken a significant step across the border...

Over the last year, we’ve made many changes to how we work. We launched our Future of Work policy and, over the last 18 months, have welcomed new people who now work remotely, all the way from Leeds to Kent, including Lithuania and Greece, too. But we’re not just stopping there.

Some people – and businesses – seem to think that now is the time to be decreasing office square footage – but we respectfully disagree. So, we’ve put our money where our mouths are and, this week, we announced that we’re launching two further locations for our new work hubs.

Opening a new work hub in Leeds, we’re very excited to also announce that we’re going to be expanding into international markets, opening in the same area as Google’s new HQ in Malaga, Spain. (As you can imagine, with the weather looking ever gloomier, this has been a popular location! Not saying that Leeds isn’t just as tropical, of course…)


These new workspaces will give us the opportunity to expand our hybrid work strategy nationally whilst also creating Hallam’s first-ever base in the European Union, giving a stronger platform for international markets.

Julio Taylor, our CEO, said: “Rather than close office spaces, we’ve done the opposite and have opened new co-working spaces in Leeds and an office in Malaga, Spain, too – the latter being crucial to our aim in becoming a European leader. These new spaces give both our staff a place to meet and work together in the Leeds and Malaga areas, and our clients a new space to work side-by-side with us in new ways.

“We’re also proud to be establishing our new European base in the same location as our partners at Google, in what is proving to be Europe’s new silicon valley.”

The Leeds and Malaga work hubs join our office spaces in London and also our Nottingham head office. Rather than a totally remote working environment and fully embracing this next step in our Future of Work strategy, we’re also considering where our next work hub spaces should be…

Julio explained: “At Hallam, we’ve made a commitment to hybrid working and, over the last year, have changed the way we collaborate: it means that whilst we fully embrace the benefits of remote work, we also recognise that there’s still a need for face-to-face human interaction. We know that if we design it carefully, we can combine both into a really effective hybrid model that will be better than either one in isolation.”

Humble brag alert: this year, we were listed as one of the Sunday Times’ Top 100 Best Small Companies to work at, as well as ranking in ​​their list for Marketing and Media’s 40 Best Agencies.
