If you work in PA jobs in London, there’s one phrase that can strike fear: “organise a team building event”. How do you get grumpy Joe from accounts to like the same thing as extrovert Marie in HR? It may be a regular task in office support jobs, but it’s rarely one that is relished. No panic, we’ve come to the rescue. As a London recruitment agency, we’ve done our fair share of team building events, and heard about a lot too. So here are six of our favourite ideas.
The Ballie Ballerson London venues have ball pits and fabulous cocktails. With one in Shoreditch and one in Soho, they are great locations for team get-togethers. For those who aren’t into flinging themselves into a pit of balls like an over-excited toddler, they’ll be equally happy with the atmosphere and incredible drinks.
The Big Smoke Scavenger Hunt
A Corporate Scavenger Hunt organised by Big Smoke can be a brilliant way to make the best use of your London location. Get everyone out on the streets hunting down clues together and working as a team. It’s fun and suits everyone.
The Big London Bake
Corporate Days at the Big London Bake are a chance to test your bake-off skills. Let employees compete against each other or work in small groups of 2-3 to come up with the most scrumptious fare. Here, you’re likely to see some of the quieter types suddenly come to the fore. What’s better, you get to eat the results without having to face Paul Hollywood first.
A chocolate workshop at My Chocolate gives everyone something to focus on. There’s no awkward moments like shoehorning yourself into a wet suit for raft building. Chocolate is a great leveller and everyone can get stuck in creating their own masterpieces.
Swingers, of the crazy golf variety, can be found in both the West End and the City. While the crazy golf is fun and definitely crazy, the cocktails and atmosphere are great too. With tacos, pizzas, and burgers, there are some safe but delicious food options too.
For an escape room that can be enjoyed on a bigger scale and even on your premises, choose Aftermath. Up to 280 players can play alongside each other, so this is the chance to get Marketing vs. Sales to fight it out in a safe way. These are 2-hour experiences where you work against the clock but also against other teams. They’re addictive and we love them.
If organising team building events in London is part of your PA job, you can breathe a sigh of relief—for this time at least!
