Park Lane Take the Clash of the Recruitment Titans Trophy

This November, Saffery Champness and I-COM returned with our biggest ever pub quiz, Clash of the Recruitment Titans: Winter Edition.

On Thursday 7 November, 15 teams from ten recruitment agencies from Greater Manchester and beyond assembled to take on a series of seriously-tricky challenges.

Hosted at Eden Manchester, each team was put through their paces with increasingly difficult rounds including History, Current Events, Sports and the infamously-difficult music lyric round.

There was tension in the air, as defending champions Finlay James were in the house, ready to do battle and return home with the much-coveted trophy for a fifth time. Former winners Evolution Recruitment Solutions were also prepared for another stab at the title, naming their team ‘Winners 2017 & 2018' in an attempt to intimidate the competition.

However, there can only be one winner, and this time Park Lane Recruitment took the number one slot with a margin of 2.5 points! Their prize included the Clash of the Recruitment Titans trophy and a karaoke session generously donated by our hosts, Eden Manchester.


Winners: Park Lane Recruitment

This is the first time Park Lane has won the Clash of the Recruitment Titans, and its an extra-special victory as their attempt at the last quiz in June saw them going home with the Wooden Spoon award for last place.

Our co-hosts Saffery Champness coordinated the bonus creative round, with a Rugby World Cup themed-plasticine challenge.
