Some sort of group hobby (e.g. pick up sports, chess in the park etc etc) can be a useful one that I’ve had some success with!

Lots of the dating apps have ‘friend’ functions these days and also hold networking events.

It can be very hard - most of my friends are from elementary school, university, or work (places where we’re forced together) - but don’t be discouraged.

Best of luck!

Hi all

I recently accepted a role in a start-up and received the contract today.

The offer letter mentioned 'enhanced' parental pay but the contract mentions 'statutory'

I'm not planning on using this benefit anytime soon but that if I need to I won't be messed about.

Any of you UK based would be able to let me know the amount of details they have in this section of their contract? Not sure what the norm is? (I was contractor before so not so relevant info). Thanks in advance!

Thank you!
