If you fancy your chances you need to act fast. The closing date for applications is 29 April.
The game, sponsored by National Westminster Bank, simulates the operation of a small to medium-sized enterprise in the European Union. It involves teams of five or six 'directors' - which may come from business, schools and colleges or be made up of individuals - competing in a knock- out. Rather than merely playing against the computer ( as in some management games), they will be competing with each other for a share of the market and of the labour force.
This means that though the criterion of success is share price performance, participants will have to demonstrate a range of abilities. In addition to handling the human resources side, they will need to be able to manage production, design, marketing and exchange rates. Consequently, the make-up of a team could be critical.
The organisers believe that the game is a cost-effective way of introducing staff to business or new ideas without incurring real-life risks. But it can also be fun.
