Our CEO Paul Gladstone and his friend Lloyd have just returned from a huge adventure!! This clever owner of a financial recruitment firm won a fantastic competition and was awarded the illustrious Conti4x4trophy – the driving experience of a lifetime!
Their six day trip to Morocco began in Casablanca, where a beautiful lady in a bar said to Paul, “Of all the financial recruitment specialists in all the world…” (He wishes!!) They then travelled to Ouarzazate, where Lawrence of Arabia, The Mummy and Gladiator were filmed. (Look out for ‘Accountant Recruiting in Sandstorms – 3D version,’ coming soon to a cinema near you.)
From there, Paul and Lloyd drove one of 14 Hummers, exploring the Atlas mountains and the Sahara Desert, crossing breathtaking scenery and fiery sand dunes, navigating through rocky gorges and fording spectacular rivers.
Having negotiated difficult terrain during the day, they were pampered at night in luxury hotels – and spent one night camping under the stars in a Bedouin tent!
The Financial Staffing Solutions team won the competition at a qualifying event at the Land Rover test track, where their skills and aptitude were tested. They demonstrated off-road driving ability and a range of other skills. They weren’t actually tested on their ability to recruit first class financial staff, but you already know they are ace at that!
