IT company brings 60 people to new Kirkstall Forge offices

An expanding IT company is bringing a team of 60 people to its new base at Kirkstall Forge.

Managed Service Provider Jungle IT is taking 2,987 sq ft at Number One Kirkstall Forge.

Delivering complete IT strategies and solutions, the company was keen to grow in an environment designed to support collaboration, creativity and prioritise health and wellbeing. 

Richard Knight, operations director at Jungle IT, said: “Our new facility is designed to promote modern ways of working, with flexible spaces that can be adapted to the differing needs of our team.

“The sustainable and lifestyle credentials of the facility will allow us to demonstrate to our staff, clients and prospects our investment in the well-being of our team and our commitment to innovation.”

Hands On Healthcare has also expanded within the studio space at the development, moving from a 14-desk space to 40 desks in a matter of months.

The studios are designed to help smaller businesses grow and include a full suite of easy to book meeting rooms, Butler’s café and informal business lounge, the Forge Life concierge team and on-site railway station.

Frank Collins at Hands On Healthcare said: “We moved into Kirkstall Forge in July 2022. It has a great community feel and offers far more than just a space to work in. The contemporary space, activities, events and facilities ensure it is a fantastic environment for our team.

“The studios have eased our fast growth, taking the headache of running the office away so we can concentrate on growing our business.”

Only 3 studios remain available, offering space from 6 up to 14 desks.

Emma Roe, front of house manager at Kirkstall Forge, explains: “The site continues to be a popular choice with its dedicated railway station offering easy access to Leeds, Bradford and onto Manchester. It is a modern, inspiring environment designed to nurture smaller businesses as well as large corporates, with onsite facilities and events which help to attract and retain staff.”

Ultimately, the £400million Kirkstall Forge scheme is set to become home to a thriving mixed-use community comprising of 1,050 new homes, 300,000 sq ft of offices and 100,000 sq ft of retail, leisure and community space.
