cQ Assessment Programme

What is clueQuest?

clueQuest is a live escape the room challenge in which participating teams have 60 minutes to escape from a locked environment using teamwork, communication and logic to gather clues and solve their way out.

With over 150,000 customers having experienced our missions, we are currently UK's favourite live escape game according to TripAdvisor.

Although our escape rooms are usually a popular choice for company team buildings, some of our clients have already experienced the benefits of using escape rooms as part of their recruitment process, while others are just discovering the potential of this new assessment tool.

Why CAP?

The clueQuest Assessment Programme (CAP) is a new product developed by clueQuest Ltd in collaboration with talent specialists. Our aim is to complement existing recruitment assessment techniques through gamified real time assessment.

CAP combines real-life, immersive escape room games with recruitment expertise to ensure that talent acquisition and retention is more personal, fun, engaging and effective than most traditional recruitment procedures.

How it works

Whilst deeply immersed in the challenge, candidates detach themselves from the feeling of being ‘measured’. This allows you to directly observe your team’s soft skills at work in an applied scenario via a live stream. You can also listen in on their comments and take notes.

Each game is designed to challenge and assess skills such as:


Communication Trust

Problem solving

Outside-of-the-box thinking Performance under pressure
Active attention Concentration and mindfulness


Decision making Delegating
Initiative Being accepted by others


Respecting frameworks
Following rules

You will have the opportunity to observe and evaluate existing work group dynamics, internal candidates, or assess new talent as part of your recruitment process.
