Would you struggle if you had to work overseas? Ever surprise

0:00:000:00:04

yourself with what you can do? sounds too straightforward. There

0:00:040:00:11

must be something missing. For it to sing this easy. Or would you

0:00:110:00:16

find it difficult making up your mind? I am no good at making

0:00:160:00:21

decisions. The one thing I decided doing was wrong. Whatever your

0:00:210:00:31
0:00:310:00:56

problems with work, this is BBC Good evening! Welcome, welcome to

0:00:560:01:00

the programme. Since we started on Monday, you have been bombarding

0:01:000:01:05

our website, Facebook Page and Twitter feed with the issues that

0:01:050:01:09

concern you. One of the things you have been talking about is nepotism.

0:01:090:01:14

We will be discussing that later, and catching up with Sacha, Ben,

0:01:140:01:21

Kirsty and Chris, the stars of our show. They started with a minimum

0:01:210:01:25

wage jobs at a theme park, but tonight, things get more glamourous,

0:01:250:01:35
0:01:350:01:36

as they are working for a high end wedding planner! We also have with

0:01:360:01:46
0:01:460:01:46

us and EastEnders actress. The highly opinionated decrease of

0:01:460:01:56
0:01:560:02:10

We really want to hear from you. Tonight, we are asking if... We are

0:02:100:02:16

asking the best way to get a job, through qualifications or contact?

0:02:160:02:22

To you only get your job thanks to your dad? Did bad for it in the

0:02:220:02:28

door belong to a family friend? 80% of jobs come from personal

0:02:280:02:33

connections instead of ads. Do you think that nepotism is now the only

0:02:330:02:42

way to get a job? Have you cheated? We are live, and we want to hear

0:02:420:02:49

what you think. To tell you had to get in touch, from Radio 1, here is

0:02:490:02:57

Tina Daheley! Thank you. Good evening. Yes, tell us a great story

0:02:570:03:07
0:03:070:03:12

about how you got a job, with or You can also interact with us on a

What you are there, you can find out how to join us here in the

0:03:240:03:34
0:03:340:03:37

It is our final might tomorrow. Our for recruits are here. Coast, Ben,

0:03:370:03:42

Sacha and Chris, good to see you again. Having a nice week? Broadly?

0:03:420:03:47

They have been fast-forwarded through an entire lifetime's career

0:03:470:03:52

in a matter of days. They started at the bottom on Monday, Sacha was

0:03:520:03:59

clearing up pony crab, and they have been working their way up.

0:03:590:04:04

have been unemployed for seven months. You need to be more

0:04:040:04:14
0:04:140:04:21

I feel like I'm letting my children down by not having a career. I want

0:04:210:04:26

to come back from a high day's work and not checking how everything is

0:04:260:04:31

every five minutes. I thought I didn't need qualifications and I

0:04:310:04:39

thought my personality would see me through. I would say close to a

0:04:390:04:46

year now. The other days, I'm thinking, what went wrong. Perhaps

0:04:460:04:54

you struggle to delegate. That is terrible! I put a lot of effort

0:04:540:05:04
0:05:040:05:06

into it. To get squashed, it is hard to take. Moments of drama.

0:05:060:05:10

Tonight, they are facing their biggest challenge yet, negotiating

0:05:100:05:15

for a high-end wedding planner. If they can cope, they can cope with

0:05:150:05:25

The fast-forward Korea's of our recruits are about to get an

0:05:250:05:35
0:05:350:05:47

Good morning, my name is James Lord. I'm looking for a location

0:05:470:05:51

executive who will go to three venues in each location. Kirsty,

0:05:510:05:56

you will be flying to Spain to negotiate a venue in Andalusia.

0:05:560:06:02

Sacha comedy will be flying to Italy to negotiate the news. Chris,

0:06:020:06:06

you will be flying to France to negotiate venues on the code does

0:06:060:06:11

off. And Ben, you'll be flying to Switzerland to negotiate with

0:06:110:06:19

venues in Geneva. Excited! Just to say, this is not a holiday, it is

0:06:190:06:29
0:06:290:06:30

work. In 48 hours, each recruit must return to the UK with a

0:06:300:06:35

perfect five-star wedding package to pitch to James. At the moment,

0:06:350:06:40

I'm trying to stay as calm as possible. They will have to visit

0:06:400:06:46

five * locations. And attempt to strike a deal when James's behalf.

0:06:460:06:50

The ability to negotiate a good rate of commission is vital.

0:06:500:06:56

expect a minimum of 10% of the total wages and budget. -- wedding

0:06:560:07:03

budget. It is a challenge that Kirsty is doing everything she can

0:07:030:07:09

to prepare for. I am covering all bases, trying to get to know the

0:07:090:07:19
0:07:190:07:32

She is even prepared to exaggerate. We can get up to 25%. No, it is too

0:07:320:07:38

much for us. I don't think they believed we could get 25%. No

0:07:380:07:46

negotiator, I am polite! commission goes from 10 to 15%.

0:07:460:07:50

did initiate hands with him on the deal we were knocking out, stupidly.

0:07:500:07:56

The one thing I didn't think was the end of the negotiation. There

0:07:560:08:01

is no way of putting you on that 10%? And Ben has had to get

0:08:010:08:08

creative. The other venues were charging 15%. I can't really go

0:08:080:08:13

back to my boss and be like, this is a great place. The commission is

0:08:130:08:19

just the commission, I cannot budge on that. And in Italy. We give a

0:08:190:08:26

commission of 10%. Sacha faces a steep learning curve. 10.5? A what

0:08:260:08:34

does it mean, 10.5? Doesn't make sense for me. Next time I know, a

0:08:340:08:40

percentage of 0.5 is no good, go to 11. On the French Riviera...

0:08:400:08:46

Sweating already! Chris is planning a more direct approach. Would you

0:08:460:08:54

be able to go for 13%? So on accommodation, either we keep the

0:08:540:09:00

10% commission and you have a free upgrade, all we keep the standard

0:09:000:09:06

rooms and the exclusive rooms, with the 13% commission. It sounds too

0:09:060:09:09

straightforward, there must be something missing, for me to feel

0:09:090:09:16

comfortable doing it, and for it to sing this easy. -- scene of this

0:09:160:09:23

easy. It is like a fantasy!. Like something you would see in a film.

0:09:230:09:29

Sacha has one final opportunity to prove her negotiating skills.

0:09:290:09:33

not thinking how I'm going to act, when I stopped in pressure on is

0:09:330:09:41

when I go wrong. We don't normally give a commission. I would go for

0:09:410:09:48

eight, my lowest. I would say no need to you. Three weddings, high

0:09:480:09:53

season. When you have got two or three puddings a year to offer me,

0:09:530:10:01

then I could think about it. Thanks very much. So that is why have

0:10:010:10:06

recorded the balcony on the Riviera. We have a private helipad. At his

0:10:060:10:13

final venue... Chris is on a roll. I would be quite happy to go up to

0:10:130:10:19

15% on the accommodation. But he is not stopping there. Every Tommy

0:10:190:10:25

said something, I thought of something else I want. Would you be

0:10:250:10:31

willing to do a deal on this part? You know you do couples, for the

0:10:310:10:37

bride and groom? We could have a half day, complimentary spot

0:10:370:10:44

treatment. I'm happy with that. My negotiation went down quite well.

0:10:440:10:48

Some of the staff on their, is probably what I would earn in a

0:10:480:10:58
0:10:580:11:08

Funny ending! You were loving that, right? You just seem to deny it,

0:11:080:11:15

you seemed confident. Yeah, it was a really good. I was comfortable, I

0:11:150:11:20

was in France. I thought, let's try and get the most out of it. Sacha,

0:11:210:11:25

you had trouble with working out percentages. Had been a long time

0:11:250:11:31

since I was at school, that wasn't the best moment. Kirsty, you didn't

0:11:310:11:35

shake on the deal? It is funny, he called me a couple of weeks later,

0:11:350:11:40

and were still convinced there was a deal going down. I felt like I

0:11:400:11:47

did it make the deal, handshake is symbolic! Had you think you did,

0:11:470:11:54

Ben? Could have done better, but did OK. Never mind. It is

0:11:540:11:59

fascinating to meet you got three different days on this, and of

0:11:590:12:04

course, you all unemployed. You have got degrees, you guys haven't.

0:12:040:12:09

What a dream a little did that was, flying to four of the most

0:12:090:12:15

glamourous parts of the planet! got a bit excited! It was beautiful,

0:12:150:12:19

and it was a job, but it was amazing at the same time. Let's

0:12:190:12:25

hear from Sarah, would you make of that? That is not easy. To do that

0:12:260:12:30

in your own country, I would have been impressed, but to fly abroad,

0:12:300:12:40
0:12:400:12:46

I think, hats off to all of you, Grace, stylist, what did you make

0:12:460:12:54

of that? Non- AD you could speak any language is! What is going on?

0:12:540:13:01

-- any languages. All you need to do as a Brit when you go abroad...

0:13:010:13:11
0:13:110:13:14

A talk louder! Adopt a patronising But that's a British classic thing

0:13:140:13:18

isn't it, we are all arrogant when it comes to learning a language?

0:13:180:13:22

don't think so. I think a lot more people now are learning languages,

0:13:220:13:27

so it's kind of become a trend, you know, like at uni, a lot of people

0:13:270:13:34

are learning. For me, Kirsty did well, I was awful at it, but maybe

0:13:340:13:42

that was something teenagers should start doing. The next film is

0:13:420:13:46

interesting and we have to come up with some creative ideas. Now, you

0:13:460:13:56
0:13:560:13:57

If you get a job through nepotism, have you cheated? Anybody who has

0:13:570:14:01

had a job given directly to them by a family member or friend? Put your

0:14:010:14:09

hands up if you've ever had a job because of a family member? I think

0:14:090:14:13

we need more honesty. Come on, that's three people. OK, let's go

0:14:130:14:17

to, actually, let me come to some of you in a moment. Who gets

0:14:170:14:27
0:14:270:14:52

You got leapfrogged out? Yes. obvious you are aggrieved by that?

0:14:520:14:56

Yes, sorry. Don't be, you are passionate about it, that's fine.

0:14:560:15:06

Who's given a job to a relative. Yes Sir, Charlie? Yes. Tell us what

0:15:060:15:15

you do? I employ seven relatives. You do what? Seven. Seven?!

0:15:150:15:20

children, one wife, who son-in-laws. Actually a couple of grandchildren

0:15:200:15:24

come in on Saturday and clean the vans. That's how businesses

0:15:240:15:27

continue, the children come through the business, they are going to

0:15:270:15:31

eventually take it over, put other people into work, so I think it's a

0:15:310:15:36

bit of sour grapes over there. point is though that she was better

0:15:360:15:41

than the candidate. That's what she says. I had to train that person up.

0:15:410:15:46

It doesn't mean you were better though, does it? Excuse me, if you

0:15:460:15:50

are training somebody how to do a job and I was doing the job before

0:15:500:15:56

that person showed up b she was on holiday, doing jollys with her

0:15:560:16:06
0:16:060:16:06

mates in Monaco. So she didn't know anything about the job. She was in

0:16:060:16:16
0:16:160:16:49

Isn't the problem though that it's hard to sack a relative? Yes. I

0:16:490:16:53

actually employed my wife as well and had to sack her three times.

0:16:530:16:58

You sacked her three times. OK. You didn't learn that lesson!

0:16:580:17:02

Over to Tina. What are people saying online? It's not what you

0:17:020:17:07

know, it's who you know getting a lot of reaction online. Sharon is

0:17:070:17:13

saying it's useful so contacts can useful but not always helpful. I've

0:17:130:17:17

asked various people for help getting jobs, they haven't helped

0:17:170:17:22

me. Chloe disagrees, it's all about who you know, it's extremely unfair

0:17:220:17:27

and stupid which is pretty much to the point.

0:17:270:17:37

This is Tim here. Tim, I believe you are a member of the Thai Royal

0:17:370:17:44

Family? Yes. Did you get your job through nepotism? Obviously not and

0:17:440:17:54
0:17:540:17:54

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 49 seconds

0:17:540:18:43

I started an internship. At one of the largest in the world, three

0:18:430:18:50

weeks into the internship, they employed me. Did you get an

0:18:500:18:55

internship because of your family? And not at all. 500 people's got

0:18:550:19:01

the same intense across the city. I wouldn't say it luck, but it was

0:19:010:19:10

the way to get it. You were a builder? I am, by trade. A Andy

0:19:100:19:20
0:19:200:19:20

Goode into television? I work on the only way is Essex. That is

0:19:200:19:29

exciting! Did you know someone? didn't know anyone. I was

0:19:290:19:35

passionate, I really, really wanted to work in telly. I care about it,

0:19:350:19:42

and I think, if I am passionate and I care, and strive for it, you can

0:19:420:19:49

get what you want. I kept on people's backs, I sent letters, e-

0:19:490:19:54

mails, I don't have any GCSEs, but after about a year, I got a phone

0:19:540:20:00

call, went in for a chat and a black did. Since then, the ball

0:20:000:20:05

started rolling. Can it is who you know. You just work hard, you get

0:20:050:20:15
0:20:150:20:27

in. Well done, mate! Over there, yes? High, nepotism I don't think

0:20:270:20:33

is the problem. Everybody has to have three important things -

0:20:330:20:36

qualifications, knowing the right people in terms of meeting them,

0:20:360:20:42

and then using the contacts, and it is not impossible to meet new

0:20:420:20:47

people, or people higher up by those people, and I come from the

0:20:470:20:51

lowest place in the world. It is possible to go from nowhere and

0:20:510:21:01
0:21:010:21:04

build yourself up. What does that What are people saying, Tina?

0:21:040:21:07

very mixed response. Lee says knowing somebody in a company will

0:21:070:21:10

only help you if you're qualified and experienced enough to do the

0:21:100:21:16

job and even then it will get you so far. 02 have got in touch saying

0:21:160:21:26

they disagree saying it's not what you know, it's who you are.

0:21:260:21:30

First choice Holidays say knowing someone in the industry can be a

0:21:300:21:36

massive help but won't let you get the job or help you progress.

0:21:360:21:39

Another one. If you know a person in the company, you have ten times

0:21:390:21:43

more chance of getting a job. Richard.

0:21:430:21:46

Very interesting comments, aren't they, I mean they're all fairly

0:21:460:21:50

accurate in their own way I think, aren't they. Over the last couple

0:21:500:21:54

of nights, we have seen companies like Hilton Worldwide, Argos and

0:21:540:21:57

Starbucks offering paid jobs to people who applied a few weeks ago

0:21:570:22:01

via the website and they came down to see us in the studio and they've

0:22:010:22:05

been looking for jobs for a long time. Tonight, Virgin Media and

0:22:050:22:09

Scottish power will be announcing the names of the future employees

0:22:100:22:13

who they found through our Up For Hire website. The placements offer

0:22:130:22:17

three months, that's what they've been all week, but one of Virgin

0:22:170:22:26

Media's is for a one-year apprenticeship. A one-year

0:22:260:22:32

apprenticeship, a round of applause. What a great opportunity.

0:22:320:22:36

Helen Scott is here from Virgin Media and Keith Anderson from

0:22:360:22:41

Scottish Power. Welcome. Thank you. Good Evening to you both. Helen did

0:22:410:22:46

you get your job through nepotism, did you get your job at Virgin

0:22:460:22:49

Media through family connections? Absolutely not, didn't know anyone

0:22:490:22:53

that worked there before. Keith, is your dad the Chief Executive of

0:22:530:22:57

Scottish Power? No, he's not, I am. What, you are the Chief Executive

0:22:570:23:03

of Scottish Power? Yes. What is your title? A people director.

0:23:030:23:07

a Chief Executive. I hadn't been warned! I could have worn a tie or

0:23:080:23:13

something. Tell us about these positions that are pretty

0:23:130:23:19

impressive, tell us more about them? We have a one-year placement

0:23:190:23:23

as an apprentice technician, a network apprentice and a three

0:23:230:23:27

month placement for somebody to work in our fantastic retail store.

0:23:270:23:32

Very much a message for the company there. Keith tell us about jobs you

0:23:320:23:36

are offering? We have one job in the renewables control centre where

0:23:360:23:41

we produce enough power for 700,000 homes, one job in Shoreham power

0:23:410:23:44

station on the south coast and two jobs in our distribution control

0:23:440:23:49

centre which is where we control the power to keep the lights on in

0:23:490:23:52

your house. They sound like fascinating jobs. Tell me about the

0:23:520:23:56

applications and how many you have got. The previous jobs this week

0:23:560:24:00

were inundated with apply cases, we heard that story this week about

0:24:000:24:06

500 people going for a job at Poundland, you didn't get that many,

0:24:060:24:11

did you? No, we were disappointed with the number of applicants, we

0:24:110:24:15

need more engineers, it's one of the fastest growth areas. We are

0:24:150:24:19

investing billions over the next few years, creating an awful lot of

0:24:190:24:25

jobs and work and people need to get involved. Tell us, on the

0:24:250:24:28

applications that you came in, what were the classic mistakes? Five of

0:24:280:24:32

the people didn't actually fill out the application form, they just

0:24:320:24:36

uploaded their CV and that's not particularly clever and a lot of

0:24:360:24:40

people just didn't answer the question, you know. We want detail

0:24:400:24:44

and we want people to really show us the experiences. Never just send

0:24:440:24:48

your CV directly there, always fill in the form? Not if we have asked

0:24:480:24:51

you to fill out a form because we are asking the questions for a

0:24:510:24:56

reason. Thank you very much. A Chief Executive, gosh! Later on,

0:24:560:25:00

we'll be meeting the people who got the jobs, but some of those who

0:25:000:25:08

didn't are getting expert help from two companies from Fresh Minds and

0:25:080:25:12

inspiring internships. You can come into the studio tomorrow. Get in

0:25:120:25:15

touch with us, load of people have watched the show earlier in the

0:25:150:25:19

week. Come to see us and you could be in the workshops. Back to Chris,

0:25:190:25:26

Sacha, Kirsty and Ben who're on a mission to impress James.

0:25:260:25:29

Jaiment's next challenge for his new employees is all about

0:25:290:25:34

creativity -- jails. I've given them the assignment of create ago

0:25:350:25:38

wow factor to accompany any wedding that happens in the region. Could

0:25:380:25:43

be something to do with food, transport, anything they want.

0:25:430:25:46

have to research and deliver unique and unforgettable experiences that

0:25:460:25:51

can be organised around their chosen wedding venues. Because of

0:25:510:26:00

the lake, I want to see if we could maybe get a boat for the couple. Do

0:26:000:26:05

you know anyone with big boat? Do you get little bit nervous because

0:26:050:26:10

I don't want to get it wrong... A yacht Club, boats. On the drive

0:26:100:26:14

over here, I kind of decided I would select this place. This is

0:26:140:26:19

the land we'll be using to plant the trees. Kirsty has tracked down

0:26:200:26:25

her wow factor. My wow extra would be to plant a tree to symbolise

0:26:250:26:29

that you have been married and olive trees are resilient and can

0:26:290:26:37

live in really terrible conditions. But she's beginning to worry about

0:26:370:26:40

her choice of venue. Not sure I've made the right decision. Not sure

0:26:400:26:44

whether this one is five stars and I think the other two definitely

0:26:440:26:51

are. Didn't bring my hiking shoes!

0:26:510:26:58

I'm not 100% sure where I am at the moment, but I saw a vineyard.

0:26:580:27:08
0:27:080:27:10

is attempting to put together an exclusive wine-tasting event.

0:27:100:27:12

Anglaise. From my little bit of French I know, he's saying this is

0:27:120:27:17

the place here. He's neglected a crucial aspect of James's second

0:27:170:27:22

challenge. I haven't really done any research really so I'm reaping

0:27:220:27:29

the consequences of that, I guess. Speak Anglaise. Chris's choice of

0:27:290:27:37

venue has encouraged him to aim higher for his wow factor. I want a

0:27:370:27:41

helicopter involved now. There's a monastery on an island and,

0:27:410:27:44

apparently, they make their own wine. You can have a bottle of wine

0:27:440:27:52

dated on your wedding day. That's my plan. Helicopter, monks.

0:27:520:27:59

Do you rent out helicopters? Yes, we do. To this one? Yes. How much

0:27:590:28:07

is it? 1,200 euros. I want to make it perfect. If I can get the only

0:28:070:28:13

pleat package, I'll be happy. big. Sacha has yet to find her

0:28:130:28:19

dream boat. Like a pirate boat is what I'm thinking. Time is ticking

0:28:190:28:23

and ticking and ticking. But she's stumbled on a lead. This is what

0:28:230:28:27

I'm thinking here. I saw a picture, it had everything, the history

0:28:270:28:31

behind it that the island had and I thought, if I put them together, it

0:28:310:28:35

would be the dream. So I need to go to the area that I think it's

0:28:350:28:45
0:28:450:28:47

Chris needs permission to land a helicopter from the winemaking

0:28:470:28:57
0:28:570:28:59

monks. You can speak in French now! You speak French? I don't, I wish I

0:28:590:29:05

could. Would I be able to land a helicopter on the island? That is

0:29:050:29:12

not easy. Not easy. Is there anywhere that could possibly...

0:29:120:29:22

must study the... We have to think about it. At least there is a

0:29:220:29:26

possibility of that. He definitely said may be about having a

0:29:260:29:30

helicopter. They said they have never landed a helicopter on the

0:29:300:29:35

island ever, so for him to say may be was quite good. A bit of success

0:29:350:29:43

of there. I'm negotiating with mugs now! -- monks. It has not been such

0:29:430:29:49

a successful day for Ben. I have got to rely on phone calls now.

0:29:490:29:56

for Kirsty. I am no good at making decisions. The one thing I decided

0:29:560:30:02

on doing is actually wrong. This is what I'm talking about. This has

0:30:020:30:09

got the character, the romance. It shouts Italian, it shouts romance.

0:30:090:30:14

This will go with the whole dream of the island, the private island,

0:30:140:30:24
0:30:240:30:31

the private boat, and I'm so proud, Wow! Monks and helicopters,

0:30:310:30:36

together at last! A did you like it? It is impressive, that is

0:30:360:30:41

proper wow factor. I thought it was all right. I think it is something

0:30:410:30:51

I wanted to do. Helicopters! Kirsty, yours wasn't... Your wow factor

0:30:510:30:55

appeared to be planting an olive tree on some scrub ground near some

0:30:550:31:02

pigs. He doesn't look as good as it could have done. To start with, it

0:31:020:31:07

was winding down to the couple going anywhere down, and olive

0:31:070:31:11

trees are very resilient, they could come back next year, in 10

0:31:110:31:20

years... To it is the sort of place you find a murder victims. You were

0:31:200:31:26

not there, Richard, it is quite a nice place! Ben, who struggled a

0:31:260:31:31

bid? I did, I let myself down by not doing any research. You feel

0:31:310:31:37

bad about it? Chris did an amazing job, and I didn't do anything. But

0:31:380:31:43

you learn from your mistakes. didn't have Monks! You have got to

0:31:430:31:48

deal with the cards you were built. They didn't negotiate, he didn't

0:31:480:31:53

know that. I could tell you a lot of things, but you saw the footage,

0:31:530:31:59

I make mistakes. As we have seen, some a job estate duty much sunnier

0:31:590:32:02

places than Shepherd's Bush on a Wednesday night. But how far would

0:32:030:32:07

you be willing to travel for work? Earlier this month, Conservatives

0:32:070:32:10

said unemployed people would lose their benefits if they refused to

0:32:100:32:15

take jobs up to 90 minutes away from where they lived. So should

0:32:150:32:22

you need everything you love, your home, to find work? Grace. Haven't

0:32:220:32:28

we heard this before? Norman Tebbit said Dad. And it is the Tories that

0:32:280:32:32

key bringing it back. I moved to New York for my career, but there

0:32:320:32:38

is a difference between a job and a career. Sarah? I totally agree with

0:32:380:32:42

that, a totally depends where you of your life and your priorities.

0:32:420:32:49

In my twenties, I moved all over the world. Now I have young kids. I

0:32:490:32:53

wouldn't move. That distinction between a job and a career is quite

0:32:530:32:59

a big one. James, we will be with you in a minute! Anyone here would

0:32:590:33:04

consider moving away from their home and family? Anyone here refuse

0:33:040:33:12

to do that? What is your name? Layla. It depends what you're

0:33:120:33:19

priority is. If your priority is to get that job, then move. If family

0:33:190:33:23

and close friend is where your family comes from, don't sacrifice

0:33:230:33:26

that for an employer, because they will never care for you as much as

0:33:260:33:33

your family. So you would not made a wait for a job? Nerve. Are you

0:33:330:33:39

employed at the moment? Not at the moment. But only locally. Only in

0:33:390:33:44

Surrey or London to stop what if you were offered a really good job

0:33:440:33:49

in Glasgow? There is no way I'm going to another job as much as I

0:33:490:33:55

love my family. I can't sacrifice that. So who is paying for you in

0:33:550:33:59

10 years when you still haven't got a job? You might be lucky someone

0:33:590:34:03

can look for you and you don't have to pay benefit, but if you lost the

0:34:030:34:07

what working because you will not look after your family, who is

0:34:070:34:12

looking after you? This is London. People around the world are jealous

0:34:120:34:15

of people who live in London, if you can't find opportunity here,

0:34:150:34:20

that I am sorry, but what is the point of travelling halfway round

0:34:200:34:25

the world? You agree that she should be able to claim benefit?

0:34:250:34:31

am not. But some people, if they don't work, they have to claim

0:34:310:34:36

benefit, and if you will not work away from a home, that is a no win

0:34:360:34:42

situation. Where is D'Arcy? You wanted to say that something about

0:34:420:34:47

that film? I thought he was incredible in that film, he showed

0:34:470:34:51

vast potential and was really confident. However, in a situation

0:34:510:34:55

where the camera crew wasn't there, I struggled to see him getting a

0:34:550:35:01

foot in the door in a luxury events company. After this the touch, I

0:35:010:35:06

think they will be knocking on his door. Without this situation, I

0:35:060:35:11

couldn't see it happening. More from you guys later, I promise.

0:35:110:35:17

Some people are clearly prepared to travel to work. But would you be so

0:35:170:35:23

keen if these jobs were at the end of it? The worst job I ever had

0:35:230:35:30

was... Cutting peppers. I couldn't cut them quick enough. Moving

0:35:300:35:37

shingle off a roof. Working in an abattoir. I worked in a bar in my

0:35:370:35:41

home town. The second roughest part in the town, which was fairly rough.

0:35:410:35:46

At the end of the night there would be a pint pot full of sick. Down

0:35:460:35:50

the chute would come the guts. You had to separate them. The has glass

0:35:500:35:57

collectors, we had to separate them out. Ripping off fat off the rib

0:35:570:36:01

cages was pretty horrible. It was disgusting. You would have thought

0:36:020:36:11
0:36:120:36:19

that would put me off pork, but it And now, it is not every 17-year-

0:36:190:36:23

old whose career history reads, junior hairdresser, Saturday

0:36:230:36:30

waitress, EastEnders actress. Actually, you on 19! Daniel Harold

0:36:300:36:40
0:36:400:36:42

is here. -- Danielle. Your story is fascinating and inspiring. You were

0:36:420:36:51

on a Jamie Oliver's programme, a few months ago. Four months ago now.

0:36:510:36:55

That is where he set up a school and got mentors to train people.

0:36:550:37:00

From that can be good a drama coach, Dean to EastEnders. It gave me so

0:37:000:37:06

many opportunities, as I'm sure it does for you guys, on this show. It

0:37:060:37:10

is great to have opportunities like this. We were talking about

0:37:100:37:15

nepotism earlier. A kind of made my own contacts from the show, and

0:37:150:37:21

used it to my advantage. Sitting up night after night applying for

0:37:210:37:26

drama schools, drama shows, documentaries. I finally got into

0:37:260:37:33

Jenny's Dream School. Did you watch Katharine Tait's hair? I was

0:37:330:37:38

working in a hairdresser's in Covent garden for �3.20 an hour off.

0:37:380:37:43

I remember she came in, I got so excited. I washed her hair and I

0:37:430:37:48

thought, she is what I want to be, acting is what I really want to do.

0:37:480:37:54

So why quit the day after. Really? I thought, if I'm not going to do

0:37:540:38:01

what I'm happy in, just go for it. What kind of what she did she have?

0:38:010:38:07

Shampoo and conditioner, just normal. Coming back to nepotism in

0:38:070:38:11

acting, a lot of people get into it because their parents are in the

0:38:110:38:16

theatre trade, although without profession, you can only progress

0:38:160:38:21

if they are good. But a lot of people get into it because of their

0:38:210:38:26

family. There is not a lot of opportunities in the world at the

0:38:260:38:29

moment, but if you have the contacts, you might as well use

0:38:290:38:33

them to your advantage, no one else is going to help you. How long will

0:38:340:38:43
0:38:440:38:53

you be in EastEnders? Forever! I Right. In just a moment, we will

0:38:530:38:58

find out which of these guys here did enough in their interviews to

0:38:580:39:02

be offered the job by either Bergin media or Scottish Power. They have

0:39:020:39:06

already been told one way or the other, but first, let's see how

0:39:060:39:11

they performed on the day in their interviews. The question tonight is,

0:39:110:39:21
0:39:210:39:21

how much research should you do on It is really a dream opportunity,

0:39:210:39:26

once the lifetime. You apply for hundreds of things you mostly don't

0:39:260:39:29

hear back from them, it is demoralising. You think, what was

0:39:290:39:36

the point? I think it will be quite fun to drive around in a van, be

0:39:360:39:41

able to park it outside my house and am on my parents! For the

0:39:410:39:44

apprenticeship role, the main thing is people can go into our

0:39:440:39:48

customers's homes. You said you might go into the armed forces,

0:39:480:39:53

that is quite different career. can use your hands and your head at

0:39:540:40:00

the same time. Tell me would you know about our company. You started

0:40:000:40:10
0:40:100:40:10

back in 1984. Awkward and cable. Where I live, we could actually get

0:40:100:40:15

Bergin, so my knowledge is quite limited. -- we cannot actually get

0:40:150:40:25
0:40:250:40:25

a Bergin. Why do you think it is important for Virgin Media to be

0:40:250:40:31

innovative? Can you explain that? I always noticed they used big words

0:40:310:40:41

when they could have said it quite simple. You have just released the

0:40:410:40:45

megabits, it clear just rolling out infinity, which I think is up to 40

0:40:450:40:51

megabits. You almost no more than I do about it! Do you know anything

0:40:510:40:58

about our latest product, that we have just launched a? I can't say I

0:40:580:41:04

do. A couple of questions baby threw me off a bit, but I think I

0:41:040:41:12

thought of some good answers. I'm a big fan of spotted five.

0:41:120:41:16

waiting is the worst bit. Keep my fingers crossed, and hopefully,

0:41:160:41:26
0:41:260:41:26

wait for the phone call. Here are some of those guys you saw there.

0:41:260:41:33

Andrew, Philip and Tyrone. You guys interviewed for Scottish Power, we

0:41:330:41:38

will have a chat with you in a moment. First of all, Philip,

0:41:380:41:43

you're like a speaking company brochure! I think doing the

0:41:430:41:46

research on a potential employer is one of the important things you

0:41:460:41:53

need to do before an interview. that a dig at Andrew? I had done a

0:41:530:42:03

fair bet, they just edited it out! Shocking! We have Tyrone over there.

0:42:030:42:09

We are going to find out who got the job. Did you enjoy the process?

0:42:090:42:13

It was definitely a worthwhile price has, I was quite nervous, but

0:42:130:42:18

it is important to do a lot of research. You are gaining up on him

0:42:180:42:28
0:42:280:42:29

now! Unnoticed they missed out NTL. I did say, that was edited out!

0:42:290:42:33

Anyone here been out of work for a while? I have been out of work for

0:42:330:42:43

about three years. I have been searching, and the situation where

0:42:430:42:49

I was a top candidate for the job, they suddenly changed the

0:42:490:42:53

conditions, so did the doctor so this job would need an awful lot to

0:42:530:43:03
0:43:030:43:07

Remind us of the jobs that you are offering, Keith? One job in the

0:43:070:43:11

renewable control centre, one at Shoreham Power Station and two jobs

0:43:110:43:15

in the distribution control centre. Are these all three month

0:43:150:43:17

contracts? All fantastic opportunities for these guys to

0:43:170:43:22

prove to us what they can do. us who has got them? OK, we are

0:43:220:43:26

pleased to announce that Alastair's going to join us in our renewables

0:43:260:43:29

centre. Christopher will join us at Shoreham power station and Darren

0:43:290:43:33

and Jacob will join us at the distribution control centre. Stand

0:43:330:43:43
0:43:430:43:45

up, guys, stand up. So you've found out about the jobs

0:43:450:43:49

through the website, but, it's not a game show, you know, you knew you

0:43:490:43:52

got the jobs before you got here tonight. Alastair, what does it

0:43:520:43:56

mean to you, that opportunity? a fantastic opportunity. Renewable

0:43:560:44:00

energy in Scotland's a big industry and it's only going to get bigger,

0:44:000:44:05

so to be with a company of Scottish Power's calibre is fantastic.

0:44:050:44:09

Phillip? Chris, but looking forward to it. Good for you. Good job that

0:44:090:44:13

wasn't a job interview. Nice one. Thank you, guys, have a seat.

0:44:130:44:17

That's probably the last time you will probably ever see your Chief

0:44:170:44:20

Executive in person! Helen, tell us about the jobs that

0:44:200:44:23

you are offering? We are really pleased that we've got three

0:44:230:44:29

successful candidates with us, we'd like to offer Andrew our one-year

0:44:290:44:34

apprentice, Phillip is going to join us as a network apprentice, he

0:44:340:44:37

has a passion for our network and industry, so well done, and Tyrone,

0:44:370:44:43

you are going to be joining us in a retail store. Well done, guys,

0:44:430:44:53
0:44:530:44:54

congrachlaitions. Tyrone, well done, congratulations?

0:44:540:44:59

I was shocked when I heard the news. Were you? Almost in tears. I was on

0:44:590:45:05

the phone with my mum, she was literally dancing, up and down

0:45:050:45:09

jumping. Thank you very much. All the best, guys. Over to Tina, you

0:45:090:45:12

have been contacting us and what have people been saying?

0:45:120:45:16

You have been getting in touch with the online companies in your droves.

0:45:160:45:20

Let's see who has been talking online. Rachel is asking some

0:45:200:45:24

questions, I have an interview for a high street retailer and don't

0:45:240:45:28

know what to expect. She wants advice. Thistle have been in touch

0:45:280:45:31

with Rachel. Make sure you know a bit about them and think about how

0:45:310:45:35

you might answer key questions around service and handling

0:45:350:45:39

customers as the service experience is critical.

0:45:390:45:43

Pret have responded to Rachel saying make sure you read through

0:45:430:45:48

the website, learn about the company and what they value. What

0:45:480:45:52

are your strengths and weaknesses and make sure you think about how

0:45:520:45:55

you could make weaknesses constructive. We are live and we

0:45:550:45:59

still want your stories and opinions. Get in touch by e-mailing

0:45:590:46:09
0:46:090:46:09

us at upforhire. If you go to the welcome back site,

0:46:090:46:15

you will find a nifty online test create bid the BBC which is

0:46:150:46:19

designed to help you become a more successful job hunter. The Fab Four

0:46:190:46:25

have completed it, as have I, and apparently, I need to work on my

0:46:250:46:30

resilience or bounce backability from negative experiences. Richard!

0:46:300:46:34

Does that actually mean anything? don't know. I think it means I need

0:46:340:46:37

to look on the bright side a bit more. Thank you. Get in touch and

0:46:370:46:41

try and come and see us in the studio tomorrow night as well

0:46:410:46:44

potentially. A final look at the four recruits experiencing their

0:46:440:46:49

career on fast forward. It's the moment of truth. It's presentation

0:46:490:46:55

time. Good afternoon. OK. Who had the

0:46:550:46:59

imagination and resourcefulness to deliver a stunning wow factor?

0:46:590:47:08

Are you all ready then? Yes. Yes. All prepped. Kirsty, I would like

0:47:080:47:11

you to go first. Thank you very much for having us back, James. For

0:47:110:47:21

the first one, they offered between 10-15%. What did you agree? I have

0:47:210:47:26

to say, the negotiation, a solid negotiation wasn't my strongest

0:47:260:47:31

area, we agreed upon between 10- 15... So really you didn't actually

0:47:310:47:38

get to a figure? I tried incredibly hard and so this was kind of what I

0:47:380:47:42

felt that I could come out with. If it's not OK with you, then I

0:47:420:47:49

apologise. OK. Well, with respect, that wasn't

0:47:490:47:54

actually the brief. So another part of the package I agreed with them

0:47:540:47:59

was the opportunity to plant an olive tree. They're of the region.

0:47:590:48:02

OK. Thank you very much. Thank you.

0:48:020:48:07

I was disappointed that Kirsty didn't shake on a deal and get a

0:48:080:48:13

concrete figure. I need to go back to the venue now and redo it.

0:48:130:48:16

ultimate ambition is to be Prime Minister and this particular task

0:48:160:48:21

has brought home the fact that sometimes I have crippling

0:48:210:48:26

inabilities to make decisions and that's obviously not something that

0:48:260:48:31

somebody who's leading the entire country can possibly have.

0:48:310:48:36

This has the total palace feel and because it's taken care of by a

0:48:360:48:41

family, there's this love, amazing magic feeling in there. She doesn't

0:48:410:48:44

give commission, so I decided to ask her some more questions and she

0:48:440:48:49

said if we do have a second and a third, she'll go up to ten. That's

0:48:490:48:53

worth a commission then, isn't it? I thought that was quite nice.

0:48:530:48:57

think it was good that you adapted how you spoke and acted to the

0:48:570:49:07
0:49:070:49:07

situation. What was your wow factor? I had an idea of this. I

0:49:070:49:11

walked past the window, saw it and thought, I want that. I saw this,

0:49:110:49:20

which is a boat. It's the Veronica. It was 2,000 euros, 1,200 for half

0:49:200:49:23

a day. That's a good price, but it seems like you did well to see a

0:49:230:49:28

boat in a shop window and find it. That's the sort of girl I am.

0:49:280:49:32

the space of a few hours, so that's to your credit, definitely. Thank

0:49:320:49:37

you, that is my presentation. done. Very good, Sacha. Can't quite

0:49:370:49:40

believe what Sacha did for her wow factor, she found the boat, got it

0:49:400:49:45

for an amazing price, great thinking on her feet and

0:49:450:49:49

persistence and it really paid off for her. It's brilliant. I've

0:49:490:49:52

realised that there are set skills that you do in every single job,

0:49:520:49:56

negotiating, presenting, you know, listening and being respectful to

0:49:560:49:59

others, helping. There's all these sort of things and I'm pretty damn

0:49:590:50:06

good at all of them. It was 10% commission, which is

0:50:060:50:10

like �4,10. What did you start off at? I walked in and I was like how

0:50:100:50:14

much and she was like 10%, that's company policy. So you didn't get

0:50:140:50:18

her up? Literally, I was like what can I offer it to you... Did you

0:50:180:50:21

ask who has the authority to make a decision about getting more

0:50:210:50:26

commission? No. What was your wow factor? My wow

0:50:260:50:32

factor was a vineyard. Did you actually see it? I'm afraid I had

0:50:320:50:36

to do it over the phone... So you don't know what it looks like, so I

0:50:360:50:40

can't really judge what you've done without seeing it, unfortunately.

0:50:400:50:43

Once again, I've gone through the process of looking at myself a bit

0:50:430:50:47

more. I need to look at myself and think, I haven't done it before,

0:50:470:50:50

not got no experience, that's fine you have now, so when you go into

0:50:500:50:54

that realm again, you know what to do and you know what mistakes you

0:50:540:51:00

do and work towards not making those mistakes.

0:51:000:51:03

This place was just spectacular, private helicopter pads. He

0:51:030:51:07

originally said 10% and I said can I go to 15 and I said, if you

0:51:070:51:13

promise a minimum of three days, we'll go to 15% and I said fine, OK.

0:51:130:51:15

The commission on the accommodation I think you've done very, very well

0:51:150:51:20

on. I liked the fact that they had a helicopter pad so I thought I

0:51:200:51:24

would use that and you also found out there is a monastery with monks

0:51:240:51:31

and they make their own wine and it was a brilliant island. With the

0:51:310:51:33

helicopter, it's actually really easy to get a helicopter.

0:51:330:51:38

person I was most impressed with was undoubtedly Chris. He abs

0:51:380:51:40

newtly nailed it with the negotiation, got 50% more

0:51:400:51:46

commission on the rooms -- absolutely nailed it. I knew you

0:51:460:51:52

were going to do it again, I knew it. I could kick you. You are a die

0:51:520:51:57

manned diamond. We need to polish you up a bit. The wowest wow factor.

0:51:570:52:02

On top of the world with that. I was never expecting people to say

0:52:020:52:06

that I did that well because I'm the youngest and I haven't got any

0:52:060:52:12

qualfick aces and stuff. I shows that I can do it -- qualifications.

0:52:120:52:16

I want a job that I enjoy and show good results and can feel proud of

0:52:160:52:22

saying, I have this job, and, like, you know, feel the confidence in it.

0:52:220:52:31

APPLAUSE Here he is.

0:52:310:52:37

Nice one, Chris. James, the wowest wow factor you've ever seen? It's

0:52:370:52:42

up there, definitely. But it was impressive? Very. I mean, to go to

0:52:420:52:46

a foreign country, to France, and even creatively think of that on

0:52:460:52:50

the day and just think, uem going to go to an island, bang on the

0:52:500:52:54

door of a monk, hopefully he'll speak to me and make me some wine

0:52:540:52:58

is something which, I would struggle to think of that, it was

0:52:580:53:01

brilliant. Also watching the journey that you have been on

0:53:010:53:04

during the course of the week on the films has been really

0:53:040:53:07

interesting. The first day you couldn't make candy floss and got

0:53:070:53:13

demoting to pot washer. Not much of a dive though, is it? More of a

0:53:130:53:16

sideways move. Shifted over somewhere.

0:53:160:53:19

But you know, you've grown in confidence I think. Do you feel

0:53:190:53:23

that as you have trieded out these different jobs? Yes, I think I'm a

0:53:240:53:27

confidence person anyway, I have no problems doing anything, but doing

0:53:270:53:30

this, it does give you the confidence to do anything in the

0:53:300:53:33

work place. Something important to you, you feel like, because it's

0:53:330:53:36

important to me I'm going to be safe, but doing something like this,

0:53:360:53:40

you give over the confidence. you give hum a job? I would

0:53:400:53:43

seriously consider it, yes, if it was just a job whereby you were

0:53:430:53:46

flying over Europe negotiating venues then actually probably yes,

0:53:460:53:51

however, I don't have a job that just does that unfortunately. You

0:53:510:53:54

would have to deal with clients and everything else and you would

0:53:540:54:01

probably need a bit more training. To be honest, you saw what I did

0:54:010:54:05

and you saw what Chris did and I thought he was amazing and this guy

0:54:050:54:09

is great and I think if you don't give him a job, someone else is

0:54:090:54:16

going to snap him up and you will miss out. Sacha, Chris picked Sacha.

0:54:160:54:20

You grew in confidence there didn't you. What was the phrase you used

0:54:200:54:24

toward the end there? I got a little bit confident there. But it

0:54:240:54:29

was amazing and, as I said before, when I see things, I usually go get

0:54:290:54:34

it. To find that boat from a picture that size, on the whole of

0:54:340:54:40

Lake Garda, it's fantastic. We have to move on. More from our four

0:54:400:54:41

tomorrow night, ladies and gentlemen.

0:54:410:54:45

And we'll have a look at how they cope with the big one, the

0:54:450:54:48

pressures of hedging a major company.

0:54:480:54:54

For the next three days, you are going to be me. This is the most

0:54:540:54:58

important thing. Your first thing today is interviewing. She's on her

0:54:580:55:03

own and she's got to do it. Really nervous. No, Lauren. You could see

0:55:030:55:08

this come to life across 360 restaurants. As you know, it's the

0:55:080:55:11

biggest colour. �500,000 worth of business. Probably thinking the

0:55:110:55:16

stuff I'm presenting is crap. do you think that would be crap?

0:55:160:55:22

I'm going to make a complete idiot of myself. I don't want to be an MD,

0:55:220:55:25

I will be an MD. If you want to be here tomorrow,

0:55:250:55:29

you can join the studio audience by going to the website. E-mail us or

0:55:290:55:32

0:55:330:55:38

screen. That is all we've got time for tonight. Back at the usual time

0:55:380:55:41

of 9 o'clock tomorrow. I'll be asking if you can't find a job,

0:55:410:55:44

shouldn't you just create your own and we'll be reading and reacting

0:55:440:55:49

to all of your comments. Kirsty, Ben, Sacha and Chris will step into

0:55:490:55:53

the shoes of four Chief Executives, so find out how it feels to be the

0:55:530:55:59

big boss and we'll be joined by Sarah Cox and former dragon James

0:55:590:56:05

Richard Bacon and Tina Daheley are live and interactive in our series focusing on the lack of jobs and career prospects for young people.

As the number of jobless rises, is now the best time to head to University? Or do increasing fees and gradute unemployment mean a degree is not worth the paper it is written on? Also, as our four recruits are put under pressure when they travel to Europe to negotiate business deals, we ask if personality is more important than qualifications?

Six more people are told that their job application was successful as two more companies announce who will be joining their workforce. Plus a host of celebrities reveal the worst jobs they have ever done.
