From Northern Power Women, Power Platform is your career development hub making it easy to share skills and knowledge and make meaningful connections.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, it may feel like things in your working life are a bit stagnant at the moment. We’ve seen numerous industry events postponed or cancelled and working from home is the new normal for most meaning business owners and employees have had to grapple with some big changes in the last few months.
So, it’s no wonder that our career development and industry communities have taken a bit of a backseat.
This June, we’re launching Power Platform – something that’s been in the works for months, but might just be more appropriate than ever…
The Power Platform is an online hub to bring together work communities, making it easy for you to grow your network, find opportunities, share your knowledge and learn new skills.
Our hub is a place to develop meaningful connections – matching organisations and people with an opportunity to share, with the people looking for opportunities to develop their professional skills and experience.
Power Platform is inspired by Northern Power Women which, along with Northern Power Futures, is a community of over 60,000 people across all industries, genders and socio-economic groups who are committed to supporting future talent and celebrating role models.
Our aim is to make it easier for people to develop purposeful connections, and share skills and knowledge to support each other professionally. To achieve this goal, we’re guided by our principles of paying it forward, being generous and making a difference. And we’re looking for others who share these values to join our growing community.
Whether you’ve got an opportunity you’d like to share, or you’re looking for an event to accelerate your career, Power Platform brings all these work opportunities together in one place.
Find events near you (as close as your living room at the moment!) with our catalogue of industry, personal improvement and teaching events and conferences.
Experts from a range of industries list their events with us – helping you find events to learn anything from business development skills to wellbeing at work.
If you’ve got an opportunity you want to shout about, be it volunteering, work experience or paid work, you can list it with us for free.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for an opportunity to boost your skills, our opportunities page matches you with openings based on your location, interests and industry.
Connect with people in our Power Platform community and grow your working network. Find people near you based on expertise and interests as well as whether you’re looking to skill swap, learn from, or mentor others.
With our working lives looking a little different right now, Power Platform is here to connect you with events, opportunities and people that will support your professional development. To register, sign up for free and we’ll keep you on top of the opportunities and connections that will help grow your network.
