The doors of the first overseas Military Coworking Network Hub have now opened at the RAF base in Akrotiri in Cyprus.
The hub provides a modern coworking space with eight desks, WiFi, printing facilities, air conditioning, a break-out area and refreshments – all housed in an existing building on the base and designed to support remote working and reduce isolation.
It’s one of 12 coworking hubs set up as part of the Military Coworking Network, and it’s designed for remote working, ensuring partners, spouses and families can maintain their careers while based in Cyprus.
Station commander of RAF Akrotiri, Gp Capt Nikki Thomas said: “The RAF Akrotiri coworking hub is a superb facility. Offering an excellent place to work, it will help create a network of like-minded people across the Akrotiri community and will hopefully provide a sanctuary for all those whose only option has previously been to work from home.”
Hub volunteer, Delyth Moylan, said: “We want to stamp out the feeling of isolation and for our members to feel they can always come to the hub for support.”
