BBC Search for Unemployed Graduates for Major New BBC3 Series


Here’s a statistic constantly in the news: Youth unemployment almost hits one million. Sound familiar? How about this: Graduates face stiff competition as they fight for jobs.

There are thousands of young graduates across the UK struggling to land a job despite working hard to get a degree. The BBC is looking for young people who are currently unemployed to potentially take part in a major new BBC3 series that aims to tackle youth unemployment in the UK.

We would love to talk to aspirational Undergraduates and Postgraduates aged between 17-27 who are unemployed and seeking a career. It might be that you are fed up of searching for a job that doesn’t seem to exist, or that you would like the chance to try something different or find a new career path. Either way, it’s important to stand out from the crowd and this might offer you the opportunity to do just that.

The series is still in its ‘ideas’ stage at the moment, and we’re looking for people who might want to be involved. If you’d like to find out more, please do get in touch with Lauren on 0208 008 4984 or email
