Ninjas News!

1st May 2024


Catch up with Lizzie

Hey Ninjas! Hope you're having a good week so far!

Don't you just love this time of year - I mean, what's not to love about the annual pay review / rise and all the delightful work for us in HR that accompanies it! 🙃

Two things for me this week that have filled my cup:

1) I've been embracing the Digital Nomad in me! The laptop and I have landed in Spain and we are enjoying a change of scenery & a good dose of Vitamin Sea. I'm so grateful for the flexibility I have in my role 🙏

2) I have been sprinkling little moments of joy to our members thanks to our friends & partners at YuLife who gifted us some tickets to meet Claudia Winkleman! 🥰

Happy 1st May - hope you are all doing some nice things to fill your own cups this week.

Ninjas Socials

She's aiming to bring Ninjas Hosts together to talk about how the role is evolving and chat about both local & national Ninjas Events for 2024!

Ninjas Socials

We love to see our Ninjas get together & socialise in real life across the UK. 

Last year we hosted more than 150 Ninjas Socials & this year we've already hosted another 53 so far, with many more already booked into the

Ninjas Events Calendar.

When you go along to a meet up for the first time it's a total act of bravery: walking into a room of people you may have never met before. What's so great is knowing that you're going to spend time with people who absolutely get it. You're all Ninjas - you share the belief that our profession is here to make a positive difference to the world of work & that our community is stronger together.

Have you been to one of our Socials? If so, you'll know they're unashamedly non-corporate, taking place in relaxed settings; think pubs, cafes or in the great outdoors! They're super relaxed - no agenda and no cringey, creeping deaths intros on our watch!

We love seeing your posts & pics about Ninjas Socials & hearing about the friendships made. Christie has been hosting the Notts Ninjas Socials for the last year & a half - they've shared food, shared time, shared worries, shared insight & like this selection of pics quite wonderfully shows, they've shared lots of smiles & laughs too!

If you want to take part there might already be a Ninjas Social taking place near you - have a look at our Events Page on Facebook to see if there's one coming up! If not, why not set one up yourself and become your area Host?
