There are dozens of online brokers out there today to advertise your space with and each one offers something slightly different.
For instance, those using HubbleHQ to find a workspace can see the different sized private offices available at any given location and how much they cost.
Companies searching the market through Free Office Finder can use their handy tool to compare average desk prices in different areas.
Coworking listing sites like the ones we’ve summarised below are becoming increasingly popular. They’re free to use and save those looking for an office a lot of time.
There are lots of benefits for coworking operators too. Although brokers typically receive 10% commission on rent when they place a tenant with you, it’s usually free to list your space on their website.
Partnering with a broker can also help you gain exposure and get more members on board and some listings sites/ brokers will also market your space(s) across social media as well as creating a page for it on their website.
Here are 10 coworking listings sites your space should be on – in no particular order of preference!
1. Coworking Nomads
Founded by Sarah Sneddon, Coworking Nomads is a site for...you guessed it, nomadic freelancer types who like to cowork. Coworking operators can update their listings easily via a portal and you can also allow users to post reviews and recommendations.
Colorado-based coworking platform Upsuite has an extensive inventory of spaces across the US and Canada. Be sure to check out their Traditional v Flexible v Work from Home Calculator. It’s a handy resource when arguing the case for coworking!
Those on the hunt for a space can “automagically” find their “perfect office” through a combination of smart search and unrivalled data, thanks to HubbleHQ. Their team have found offices for the likes of Monzo and Citymapper and they hosted the first-ever coworking awards ceremony in 2019.
4. First Office Hub

7. Instant Offices
Instant Offices also lists flexible workspaces all over the world (from Afghanistan to Zambia, specifically!). More often than not you’ll find a member of their team on a panel at an industry event talking about the latest coworking research and trends.
Coworker is trusted by the likes of Google, AirBnB and Spotify, to name a few. More than 14,500 spaces are listed on the website, so get on board if you’re not one of them! As an operator, you’re able to include detailed information, from member reviews to the type of community events you host (e.g. weekly lunches) to other “cool stuff”!
The team over at Flexi have also been in the industry for a long time and the company represents 99% of the UK’s flexible workspace market. As well as freelancers and SMEs, their clients include big names such as Disney, Deliveroo and the BBC.
10. Making Moves
Making Moves offer a tailored service, working on behalf of their clients to source, negotiate and manage their entire office move. As such, they don’t make coworking spaces visible to the public on their website straightaway but match individuals to specific spaces according to their needs once they’ve submitted their requirements.
