Will our two Shipwrecked recruiters survive their island ‘ordeal’?

Channel 4’s Shipwrecked has thrown up yet another recruiter for us all to cheer on.

Last month, Recruiter brought you news of Kush Khanna, a recruitment manager from international media organisation InterTalent Rights Group in London, who was one of the original islanders on the show that features British contestants stranded on remote tropical islands competing in teams against each other for a cash prize.

However, this past Monday, viewers saw model and semi-professional footballer Stacey Freeman enter the competition. What’s this got to do with recruitment, you may ask? Well, it turns out Freeman balances these two careers with an additional career at Brighton-based Adenstar Workforce, the internal recruitment division of Adenstar Developments, as head of perm division.

Let the battle of the recruiters begin! But don’t hang about: if you’ve missed the series thus far but want to see if either of our Industry’s Finest makes the winning team, the final of Shipwrecked 2019 is at 9pm tonight on E4.
