Up For Hire Live

Starts 9pm, Monday 17th October 2011 on BBC3 – Tuesday 18th at 9pm, Wednesday 19th at 10pm and Thursday 20th at 9pm and 10:30pm.

UP FOR HIRE LIVE is a unique interactive series for BBC Three, transmitting from 17 – 20 October, which aims to help young people who are out of work, or in temporary jobs, to start a new career.

´╗┐Recent government figures show that unemployment amongst 16 – 24 year olds has risen to nearly one million, so this series couldn’t be more relevant. Business leaders and celebrity guests will be taking part to share their stories and highlight the reality of the world of work. In order to shine a light on the recruitment process and for viewers to receive tips on applying for a job, a range of major companies representing the retail, leisure and technology sectors are offering a number of paid work placements throughout the UK. We plan to film part of this process for inclusion in UP FOR HIRE LIVE.
