Get your team together for football’s 2019 Recruitment five-a-side

Rec-to-rec firm Madison Warner is on the lookout for recruiters to take part in its 2019 Recruitment five-a-side football tournament.

The event, now in its second year, will take place on Saturday 22 June at Powerleague in Shoreditch.

Teams have to apply to enter but entry is free – although there will be fundraising for men’s suicide charity CALM on the day.

The overall winners will take home £1k in Selfridges Vouchers, with the runners up awarded £250 to spend at Mrs Foggs tavern and gin parlour in Broadgate Circle.

To hear the full lowdown on the event, including how to enter, from Madison Warner MD Paul Kelbie, click on the video below.

Madison Warner’s event is not the only recruitment-related tournament taking place this summer, however. 

The London Recruitment Festival returns for a fifth year on 29 June. It features a football tournament and a mixed-team softball tournament, and is also free to attend. It takes place in Chiswick, West London from 11am to 7pm, and also offers a variation of street foods, bars, free face painting, free bouncy castles and free circus training.
