Benchmark hits a perfect 10

12th September 2016

Benchmark marked a decade of recruiting in Sheffield in style by raising £1,081 with a Sheffield themed quiz in aid of the Master Cutler's Challenge, fundraising for St Luke's and Rotherham Hospice.

The Benchmark team were joined by the Master and Mistress Cutler to celebrate their birthday by testing the business community of Sheffield with a quiz focused around the city. Guests were quizzed on everything from the history of Sheffield to popular culture, and Exposed Magazine came out on top to be crowned the 'Ultimate Sheffield-ers'. -As a company we take our heritage seriously and pride ourselves on supporting businesses and city wide initiatives it seemed fitting that we mark our 10 years by raising money for the Master Cutler's charities. We have forged many great relationships in the region and witnessed the emergence of new thriving sectors in industry we look forward to seeing what the next 10 years bring! said Louisa Harrison-Walker. Founded in 2006 by Louisa Harrison-Walker, over a ten year period Benchmark has successfully placed 2456 people in their dream job, worked with 482 businesses in South Yorkshire, and donated over £35,000 to charities and community projects.
