In September we were delighted to host our second Clash of the Recruitment Titans pub quiz in partnership with Saffery Champness. Attracting over 12 recruitment businesses from across the North West, the competition was high and the pressure was on.


With Sellick Partnership currently holding the reigning title, the pressure was on for them to retain the winning trophy. However, with six rounds, including general knowledge, geography, music, sport, current affairs and brain teasers, would it be that easy to keep? Heckling, debate and humour made for an entertaining evening, as the competition amongst the teams heightened

As the drinks flowed and the teams refuelled with what seemed like a neverending supply of pizzas, enthusiasm continued with some teams taking it a lot more seriously than others.

As the quiz rounds came to a close, teams were already claiming the crown before answers had even been revealed. Marking took place, and scores revealed - with a very close set of results.

We were delighted to announce the very worthy winners, Finlay James - who seemed somewhat surprised with the result! But now that have set the bar for the next quiz, having knocked Sellick Partnership off the top - they need to work hard to retain this title.

John Gaughan, CEO of Finlay James said "I was thrilled (if not slightly surprised!) that the FJ team won I-COM's pub quiz, and our trophy is now pride of place in our office! The team had a great time at the quiz and we're already looking forward to next year's to try and retain our title!"

Congratulations Finlay James!
