Want to socialise with other female shift workers; mid wk clubbing, cinema etc..

Hi, i'm looking to meet other female shift-workers to socialise with.

I usually finish work at 9:30pm or work overnight (unlike the normal 9-5 job.) I'm a female in my twenties, like going clubbing, cinema, grabbing a bite to eat.

Sometimes I'm up for mid-week clubbing on a wed, fri or sun night or meeting up in the day on tues or wed but everyones at work or not up for going out on a week night. Want to make friends with other shift-workers working irregular hrs, temp agency workers or job-seekers.

If you're free around these days/times and like doing the same things get in touch :)

Any other female shift-workers??

Hi, I'm looking to meet and socialise with other female shift-workers, temp agency workers or perhaps job-seeker's. I'm a black female, work in social care, usually finish work at 9pm or do night shifts (unlike the usual 9-5 job.) Would be great to meet females able to meet mid-week, Friday nights or Sunday nights. I like going clubbing, cinema, eating out. Would like to hear from female's in their twenties or thirties.

Tue Mar 05

Hi I am a shift worker in the travel industry and often feel very bored and lonely during the day and some evenings as my partner/friends have 'normal' jobs and I find it very tedious going to the gym/ shopping all the time and v expensive!! What makes it worse is that every week changes for me!!! Anyone else to there in a similar position ie in their 30's-50's with no children who wants to meet up for afternoons out/ sports/ lunch etc??? Look forward to hearing from you

29 yr old female shift worker looking for fellow shift worker friends

I work shifts, finishing as early as 2:30pm in the afternoon or finishing as late as 10pm at night.

When I finish at 2:30pm, sadly I can't hang around in the city waiting for friends to get out of work at 5pm, so I often head home, which is kinda boring as it'd be nice to meet someone for a meal and a chat or whatever.

Similarly when I finish at 10pm, most people have headed home already, and if I have the following day off and fancy a few drinks and a night out it's often too late (worse still half the time it's mid-week when this happens!).

So if you're someone who is cool to meet up at like 11pm in the city for drinks and a boogie on a Wednesday night, and is fine with the randomness of that all, then I would love to hear from you!

Blinking in the light.....

Hello,

I'm a woman in her forties who spends every alternate week hunched over a computer in the City all night and could handle a bit more activity in her weeks off. I may appear confused at first, but when you remind what sunlight is, I'm fine!

Shiftworker looking for flatmate in Putney

HI there - I'm a shift worker for a tv news channel looking for someone to share a flat with in Putney/Fulham areas. As you'll understand - living with a full house of people is difficult if you're trying to sleep early in the evening, or napping in the afternoon. So ideally - I am hunting for someone friendly, relaxed and easy-to-live with.

Let me know if you're interested.

We are looking for your help! Shift workers (25-45 years) required for non-drug research!

Hello shift workers,

Our research team at the University of Surrey is investigating the effects of sleep deprivation on health and well being.

Therefore, we are urgently looking for men (25-45 years, both shift workers and non-shift workers) for a non-drug study investigating 'The Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Metabolic and Cardiovascular function'.

However, especially the shift workers are hard to find. Would you be interested or do you know how to reach other shift workers? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

We offer full compensation for your time and inconvenience.

If you are interested, please contact:

Sophie Wehrens, FHMS, University of Surrey

lunch club??

Hello all. Started working from home a few months ago and want to maximise the advantages (& not feel that I'm missing out on the social interaction of office life...)

... so did anything ever get off the ground with the lunch club idea? I'm up for lunch, galleries, cinema, etc, or just some lively conversation over coffee whilst the drones are at work!

Fri May 23

Thu Apr 24

Hiya,

I'm not a shift-worker, though I wanted to say that your idea sounds fantastic, really original.

I have a project of my own which involves finding an interesting person in my area and interviewing them- I was wondering whether you might be able to help.. Perhaps I could get in contact with one of your 'Live' models if any of them live or come from north london?

Looking fwd to seeing the exhibition at the NPG; sorry I couldn't be of any help to your project.

NIGHT SHIFT WORKER WANTED FOR PORTRAIT

Hello,

This is going to sound strange, so brace yourselves!

I'm an artist commisioned by the National Portrait Gallery to do a series of 'Live Portraits' in early April 2008. I'm looking for a night-shift worker who would be happy to sleep in the Gallery for a couple of afternoons. You'd get a bed, and it doesn't matter (to me anyway) if you don't manage to get to sleep. You'll have a lot of people looking at you and it won't exactly be quiet, but you could always wear earplugs and then shut your eyes.

You'd be making history by being the first ever 'live' portrait the NPG has ever had. It would be YOUR portrait and there would be a plaque on the gallery wall while you're there with your name and, if you agree, some information about the job you do.

If you're interested, please get in touch >

Morning Beers and Breakfast

Hi All,

Am freelance shift worker in LOndon area and me and few of the folk from work occaionally head out for breakfast and beer in the morning after completing a stint of work. THe problem being that there appears to be a complete lack of places to get a drink before 10/11am. We have been to Smithfields Market several times where some pubs are open from 6 but wondering if anyone else knows of any other decent early morning places - perhaps nearer Soho area.

Look fwd to hearing from anyone. Any others interested in hooking up for the same reasons please post here. Cheers,

Tom

Dont Get Mad, Get Even! - ITV Productions

Is there someone in you know who winds you up? Do you know someone who is a bit of a know it all or acts a bit too cocky?

Do you dream of having your very own team of superheroes to come in and sort out your problem?

Well now’s your chance to get your own back in a brand new Saturday night ITV 1 hidden camera show.

In one of our proposed pranks we require people to nominate an unsuspecting colleague or friend to accompany them to a London based film premiere at our Cinema of tricks where they’ll have pranks played on them! This event will take place between 1pm-5pm on Thursday 29th November 07.

We aim to produce a fun and entertaining family programme and we’re sure the victim of the prank will see the funny side afterwards.

For more details call 0207 261 3656 or email me on

looking for a roster - 24/7

G'day,

I am hoping someone reading this might be able to help me with a roster question.

I have heard of a roster using 9 teams (half teams better describes).. Each shift is made up of two of the half teams - together forming a full team..It can work on 12 or 8 hr shifts - averages out to 37.3 hrs per week .

We are currently looking at shift options and we have the opportunity to put forward ideas.

I have tried working it out on paper but it is not coming togther.

Does anyone know how it all owrks, or even better is anyone working it? How does it "feel"

Thanks

Weekday London

Hi, I recently moved to London and I want to get out and see a bit more of the city. I'm thinking about theatre, concerts, cinema, museums, galleries, architecture etc, but just as important (if not more so) are a few or more pints in the pub. I'm 26 and usually have every other weekend off as well as one or two days off during the week. If any of that sounds like something you might like to do then send me a mail and maybe we can meet up?

Needless to say, no freaks or trainspotters please!
