Facilities, Community and Administrative Support
Start-up members at Sussex Innovation get a lot more than just a serviced office or hot-desk. Our facilities team delivers professional meeting and conference rooms, high-speed internet access, phone lines and security. We maintain a permanent reception team to look after your guests, handle incoming calls and mail. And best of all, our community managers bring award-winning customer service to ensure that you're plugged in to all the wider benefits that come with being part of our network - through events, introductions and promotional opportunities.
Our Community & Facilities Team
Helen Northeast - Facilities Manager
Helen is constantly at work behind the scenes to keep our space flexible, secure and ready for business. Helen looks after building regulations and site maintenance, as well as overseeing decoration when one of our rooms needs a facelift! She can help you with:
- Office Management and Renovation
- Telecoms Infrastructure
- Supplier Contacts
Saffron Saunders - Croydon Centre Manager
Unsurprisingly, given her extensive background in the dental industry, Saffron is famous for being the "Official Smile" of Sussex Innovation Croydon.
As Centre Manager, Saffron adds the kind of value that can’t always be measured on a balance sheet - her wealth of experience in both the corporate and start-up landscape enables her to act as both empathetic and critical friend to entrepreneurs as their businesses scale and grow.
You can expect to see this charismatic "part-time vegan" in cheery conversations with new and existing members; organising the next community event whether social or educational and generally spreading all that is good about Sussex Innovation. As well as a super social skill set, Saffron is everyone's favourite professional pal!
Daisy Wood - Falmer Community Manager
Daisy helps with onboarding new members to the Centre, understanding their needs, making introductions and organising social events. Daisy is the friendly face who knows everything and everyone in our Falmer community. She can help you with:
- Networking and Partnerships
- Event Management
- Membership Management
Proud winners of the Award for Best Customer Service
"On a daily basis, Daisy and Sam on reception are of huge benefit to us, just managing the front end of the business, organising access to meeting space and whatever else we need."
Graeme Cox - co-founder, Emteq
"The level of support you get with the office if you need to move, or if something goes wrong - you just don't have to think about it. It takes all the worry and stresses away on that level."
Sarah Windsor - co-founder, Inset Online
