Meet the Team

Our story

We are husband and wife co-founders of this little start up, offering something a bit different when it comes to flexible working! We have both worked in corporate jobs for years and each have our own experiences of working flexibly. You only have to pick up the newspaper to know that flexible working is what everyone is attempting to do but the facilities for individuals are still pretty limited in certain parts of London.

Big co-working sites still require long commutes to central locations and cater better for SMEs than individuals. Working from home may lack facilities or feel isolated and working from your local cafe has inherent limitations. 

Fundamentally for a nation of people who are supposed to be working flexibly, things still just aren’t very flexible!

Introducing HomeWork!… it is a fully serviced work space with all the facilities you would expect from an office but with all the flexibility of ‘working from home’. The high street location makes it local and convenient and the desk space is available on an hourly or a monthly basis (and various options in between). And did we mention the coffee?! 

With some of the finest speciality coffee and tea London has to offer, from the likes of Origin Coffee, Kiss the Hippo and Teasup, we can guarantee you’ll be able to find a tasty brew with us carefully crafted by some seriously talented baristas! So, come down and grab a coffee, a desk or a meeting room and start enjoying flexible ‘home away from home’ working as it should be… we can’t wait to share it with you.

Claire and Sam

Meet the team

Claire Tucker

CEO & Co-Founder

Claire is a chartered accountant, working for 14 years at PwC, having joined on their graduate scheme. She took a career break in November 2017 to focus on her family and since then the idea of HomeWork was born and she hasn’t looked back.

“Starting a business has always been a dream of mine and I am constantly pinching myself that we are actually here! This idea came to us over a few glasses of rosé one summer, born out of our individual, less-than-perfect, experiences of flexible working. We feel passionately that the current offerings just don’t quite hit the mark and wanted to do something that would better support the individual and smaller business, enabling people to ‘work from home’ in an environment that is more conducive to work.”

Sam Tucker

Self Confessed “Non Executive Chairman / Social Secretary” & Co-Founder

Sam has worked for the last 4 years in corporate finance for a private equity firm. He started his career as a graduate at PwC, initially training as a CA and latterly working in their transaction services team. Whilst Sam is not involved in the day to day running of the business he has occasionally been known to offer some useful insight! As well as providing lots of much needed moral support.
