Do you want to come and work for the front-runner in the floating off-shore wind supply chain? If the answer is YES, then we have the perfect job for you!

Ninjas Socials

Ninjas Socials

All it takes is one person to step forward to start a movement 🌊 🌊 🌊

Since March last year we have held more than 200+ Community Meet-Ups and there are another 10 in the diary.

✅ Unashamedly non-corporate

✅ No agenda

✅ Absolutely no creeping death intros

✅ No sales pitches or slide decks

✅ Just show up and be yourself

THIS is how we do networking HR Ninjas style!

💫 Lovely to see lots of new friendships being made and we couldn't do any of this without our team of Community Host Volunteers who are bringing the Ninja magic locally; creating these wonderful opportunities for our members to connect.

And, by the way, for nothing in return other than the satisfaction of knowing they are making a difference!

🤐 (Although we are toying with the idea of commissioning some special Ninja Host pins - but let's just keep that between us - don't want to create mass hysteria! We all know what happened last time we mentioned the word #ninpin 🤣 )
