Here at JobAdder, it goes without saying that we know how to throw a party.
Of all the client drinks, industry events, festive bashes (and that time we covered ourselves in glitter) it’s the kick-ass JobAdder Christmas parties that us Adders really wait 365 days for.
International Adders from every corner of the globe were flown in to tropical Noosa town, which provided the scenic backdrop for our team bonding and debauchery. To the residents of Noosa who witnessed us tearing up Hastings Street in our JobAdder merch: thanks for the memories.
First stop on the itinerary was Go Karting and in true Adder style – we were in it to win it.
Turns out Go Karting is one sport where height isn’t a natural advantage, so the cramped carts were more comfortable for some Adders than for others!
Activity numero uno also provided the perfect backdrop for our very own Mannequin Challenge. Don’t you wish you’d thought of that?!
After an epic first night of the best karaoke Noosa has ever seen (no really, we have a classically-trained Opera singer in our midst) we set sail for swimming, fishing and some good old fashioned beach cricket on Day 2.
The weather was flawless and the fails kept the laughs rolling: boats getting bogged in the sand, catching and swiftly trying to un-catch poisonous Pufferfish and fishing hooks getting caught on boats. This last one happened way more times than we should admit!
After dancing till the wee hours on Friday night, sore heads and sunburn meant Saturday was spent lounging by the pool. Always going above and beyond to help those in need, Team Customer Support had put together personalised survival kits for every Adder, which we were a godsend after a big night out.
A few broken ribs and a plane ride home through a thunderstorm later (yes, really!) it was time to say goodbye and restart the countdown till next year’s end of year shenanigans.
Apart from being an unbelievable Christmas Party, there couldn’t have been a better way to strengthen team bonds and celebrate the hard-earned wins of 2016 than with our epic trip away.
Team JobAdder has grown and expanded a lot this year, but it’s moments like the ones on this trip that remind us that it’s who we are and the culture we foster that makes us love coming to work every day, not just the work we do when we get there.
Till next year Adders, Merry Christmas ya filthy animals!
