Carrot media moved into the John Buddle Work Village in 2005. As a web company, the staff needed an office with a reliable internet connection and good technology infrastructure. It was also important for the office to be close to the A1, with good links to the city centre. When they viewed the John Buddle Work Village, the team immediately knew it was the right location for their needs. During their tenancy, they moved offices twice within the village, to accommodate more staff. In July 2009, Carrot Media moved to Newcastle Business Park, after outgrowing its premises at the village.

“We found the location of the village to be perfect for our clients. The administrative services were fantastic, especially as we couldn’t afford a dedicated administrator when we were setting up the business.”

Justin Turner, MD, Carrot Media

Laser Ex Laser Ex, a low-cost printer solutions company, started out at the John Buddle Work Village in September 2005. The staff found events such as Connecting Business, run by the village, to be a good opportunity to network, trade ideas, offer advice and generate new business with similar sized companies. Laser Ex has now moved to bigger premises, three times the size of the original village workshop, and the business is continuing to grow.

“John Buddle Work Village provides the best environment for start-ups, giving fledgling businesses a good chance to survive. It was reassuring for us to know that we had reception support and immediate access to high quality facilities. We were given the freedom we needed to focus our attention on nurturing our business.”

Moira and Martin Sawyer, Owners, Laser Ex


Fresh Element has enjoyed the flavour of success since becoming one of John Buddle Work Village’s first tenants in 2004. The company was set up initially to offer online ready-made meals and then diversified to outside catering. Both office space and a kitchen to prepare the food were needed and no other venue could match these requirements within their budget. In 2009 Fresh Element was awarded the catering contract at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and it now runs the rooftop restaurant, Six, and provides catering for all corporate and private events at the venue.

“John Buddle Work Village has enabled our business to grow and flourish. Not only does it offer excellent space and facilities but we’re really grateful to the friendly and supportive team who helped us in our early years.”

Peter Hunt, MD, Fresh Element


Dial Green, a green business telecoms provider, was the first tenant of Buddle House in January 2007. The location and size of Buddle House was ideal for Dial Green, and provided good quality, self-contained office space for its seven staff members to work comfortably and efficiently. Prior to moving in, Dial Green was temporarily based at the John Buddle Work Village. The team found the moving process between buildings to be very smooth and they praise the accommodating nature of the staff throughout the transition process.

“What we found most attractive about Buddle House was the flexibility. We were not tied down to a restrictive, long term lease and there was always a quick response to any query we had. This helpful attitude and impressive level of support was sustained even when the time came for us to leave the premises for a bigger location.”

Alan Snelling, MD, Dial Green


Neuro Partners provide specialist support and rehabilitation services to people with brain injury, neurological and mental conditions. The business was established in 2005 by three directors. They chose John Buddle Work Village as the company’s headquarters, and within five years Neuro Partners expanded to employ over 250 office and field based employees. The staff praised the Work Village’s facilities, including the conference rooms, admin support and a good level of business support, which was particularly useful for Neuro Partners as a start-up company.

“We chose John Buddle Work Village because of its ideal location, professional image, impressive facilities and friendly welcoming staff. We are extremely grateful for the support we had from Alex and the team in our first five years of business and we have no doubt that being based there contributed greatly to our success.”

Emily Dunn, Jonathan Wade and Kelly Dunn, Directors, Neuro Partners


Newcastle Marketing Services started as a new business at the Work Village in November 2005. The marketing agency began trading with two members and now employs over 50 people. As the business steadily grew, the team needed to move offices on several occasions to accommodate increasing staff numbers. They found that moving was an easy process, thanks to the flexibility of arrangements at the Work Village. The agency has now moved to its own larger premises in Gosforth where there is more space for further expansion.

“When we moved here as a new start up business, we were able to focus on running the company without worrying about services like setting up telecommunications or reception or admin support – it was all just part of the package from the Work Village team.”

Dan Smyth and Andy Thompson, Directors, Newcastle Marketing Services
