The Hive & Yes Manchester

The Hive & Yes Manchester

The Hive is a joint venture by Co-op Academy Manchester and Yes Manchester aiming to create a buzz about employment and entrepreneurship opportunities in Blackley and North Manchester.

As well as preparing our students for a successful future, we are also committed to supporting the wider community.

The facility is a true hive of activity, housing:

  • A drop-in service from Yes Manchester, launched to help north Manchester residents find fantastic local jobs and take advantage of great training and volunteering opportunities.
  • 5 low-cost pods offering affordable office space for start-ups, home workers, freelancers and small businesses – perfect for those working in creative and digital media.
