The Recruitment International Fantasy Football League 2013-14, Sponsored by Futura Rec2Rec
Loads of recruitment industry professionals have had a great time over the last football season pitting their wits against each other in the Recruitment International Fantasy Football League.
It’s actually run by the Premier League itself and is not only free to enter for recruitment professionals, but our sponsors FuturaRec2rec put up £1,000 in prize money including a fabulous £500 first prize, a £100 runners up prize and 8 more of £50 each.
The new season is almost upon us and the Fantasy League is now open up for business.
For those of you who haven’t played Fantasy League before, it’s really easy. Players get points for clean sheets, goals and assists. It’s all done online and managed by the Premier League themselves so there’s no paperwork to worry about. All you do is pick your best team of 15 players (including subs) and spend less than £100m. You then just enter a code to join our mini-league and the Fantasy League site does the rest in terms of calculating the points you have accrued and where you stand in the table. If you’ve already got a team you just join our mini-league and use the same team. You can make transfers and even play wildcards when you realise that your team needs a complete overhaul. Full instructions are below
We’ll publish a monthly review of the movers and shakers and we’ll interview the eventual winners. We’ll also profile them in the magazine at the end of the season as well as a few human interest profiles of the main contenders which will do your career no harm whatsoever.
Futura will provide the prizes as follows:
- Overall winner at end of season wins £500 cash.
- Runner-up at end of season wins £100 cash.
- The next 8 places at end of season win £50 each in cash.
The places are those determined by the main site and their decision is final. To claim your prize you must actually be employed in a trading recruitment agency on the final day of the season (and be able to prove it) and you must include the name of your agency in your team name so we can verify that it’s actually you we’re handing over the prize money to. Prizes must be claimed with proof of employment within 14 days of the final game of the season (by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and will be paid out shortly afterwards after verification checks have been concluded.

“Tim is a fantastic recruiter with a very personable demeanour who genuinely cares about the candidates and clients he deals with. Having called Tim from Australia to ask him for help in relocating back to the UK he quickly gained a solid knowledge of my likes and dislikes and was able to provide a shortlist of potential companies within 24 hours. Having interviewed with several of these companies over a two week period I was able to secure a fantastic role with a company that suited all of the initial criteria which we discussed and this was down solely to the hard work and dedication of Tim and his team. One of the main reasons I enjoyed the experience of dealing with Tim is that he doesn't try to sell you a dream like previous rec-to-recs that I have dealt with. Instead he takes the time to genuinely listen to what you are looking for and then uses that knowledge to only provide relevant opportunities to secure you a role. I can't recommend the service I have received from Tim and Futura highly enough and would certainly advise any recruiter who is looking for their next move to utilise Tim's vast network across the North.”Futura candidate
