Hosted by BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Snoochie Shy, Hire Me: Competing For A Dream Job offers young hopefuls the chance to break out of their ordinary lives and into their dream industry, winning the life-changing prize of a dream job.
In each episode, three candidates compete against each other in a high pressure, supersized job interview for the role of their dreams – from luxury property broker, radio producer, commercial interior designer, events planner, commercial film maker and premiere league football coach.
In the first episode, ‘fairy-job-mother’ Snoochie Shy is in Manchester with a luxury Selling-Sunset-style property broker, and boss Dan is looking for a new recruit to sell multi-million-pound houses. Three promising young candidates – ex-perfume seller Alisha, flamboyant support worker Leon and food entrepreneur Ellie – are all hoping to impress their future boss and win their dream job.
In their first challenge the candidates meet a celebrity client and attempt to win their business. Unfortunately for the candidates, their client is the formidable barrister and TV presenter Rob Rinder.
Their second challenge ups the ante even further as the candidates are asked to lead a viewing for a £10 million Cheshire mansion. But selling a multi-million-pound dream home isn’t as easy as it looks…
Hire Me – Competing For A Dream Job – Wednesday at 8.00pm on BBC3.
The full series will be available on 21 September from 6am on BBC iPlayer.
