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 email@example.com and will be paid out shortly afterwards after verification checks have been concluded.

“Tim Goodwin contacted me recently when I was looking for a new opportunity in the recruitment industry. After working in the industry for the last 10 years I was really looking for something a little bit different; Tim really listened to my 'wishlist' and needless to say he delivered and found me the perfect role. While going through the process of discussing the role and interviews, I found Tim to be extremely supportive, available 24/7 to speak to with any questions and to offer advice. I have spoken to many recruiters over the past month and Tim clearly stands out from the rest – he made me feel I was in good hands! There are very few like Tim in this industry and I would highly recommend him to clients and candidates alike.”Futura candidate
