The Hive celebrates its first flying commuter as the BEST Growth Hub Scale-Up Advisor travels from Manchester to Southend by air!

Theo Kacuibskyj is one of the newest members of the BEST Growth Hub joining the team in late 2017 as the Business Scale-Up advisor. The BEST Growth Hub offer business advice and funding support for businesses based in Essex, Southend and Thurrock.

When he was first offered the position with BEST, Theo was living in Manchester. A big part of his decision to take on the contract was how accessible this new role could be for him, despite being over 200 miles away, as a result of the air route from Manchester to Southend. With a little research it was soon discovered that the timings of the flight worked perfectly, allowing Theo to travel to Southend for the working week before returning to his home City and family at weekends.

Theo now boards a plane at Manchester International airport at 08:40am on Monday and can be at his desk in the Hive Enterprise Centre- Southend at 09:30am!

The Hive prides itself on having a town-centre location as well as being in very close proximity to London’s newest airport, London Southend! We continue to support the airport as a fantastic new addition to the town!

The BEST Growth Hub are a fully funded business support service, for more information on what they can offer to your business please visit: or visit them the Hive Enterprise Centre- Southend Victoria.

“From take-off to desk it only takes me an hour on Monday morning. With the timings and price of a flight compared to the cost of petrol and a four and a half hour drive, it’s a no-brainer!”
