Leading Midlands’ teaching recruitment agency Flourish Education has taken up residence at the heart of Longbridge Town Centre.

Established in 2010, the family run firm has consistently grown and has now relocated its headquarters to a 2,700 sq ft unit on the first floor of St. Modwen’s Grade A office building Seven House on Longbridge High Street.

St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, developed the flexible office suites in 2013 as a natural progression for companies who have outgrown their premises in the nearby Longbridge Technology Park. The 18,000 sq ft building is currently home to engineering consultancy Rogers Leask and Partners and transport planning consultancy Phil Jones Associates.

Mike Murray, senior development surveyor at St. Modwen, said: “Seven House is rapidly filling up and this letting demonstrates the evolving attraction of Longbridge. Major brands, established companies and entrepreneurial start-ups can all now be found in Longbridge and we are extremely proud that the area is continually proving it is a great location for businesses from a wide variety of sectors.

“Longbridge Town Centre will continue to flourish over the next few months – not least because of the opening of the Midlands’ largest Marks & Spencer in November – and as such, we expect lettings at Seven House and our other Town Centre office scheme, Park Point, to continue.” 

Grant Taylor, a director at Flourish Education, said: “Flourish is a family business, run by myself and my partner, Louise Stokes. Our organisation has grown exponentially to become one of the leading teaching recruitment firms for the Midlands, representing academies, primary schools, children’s centres, nurseries, secondary schools and further education colleges across the region.

“We believe Longbridge provides the perfect home for Flourish to actually flourish and grow. It will make a great base for our team, with superb transport connections and a wealth of amenities on our doorstep.” 

Seven House located in the middle of the new £100 million Longbridge Town Centre, benefitting from the vibrant high street with its cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. The Town Centre is a fundamental part of the £1bn regeneration of the 468 acre Longbridge site.
