The Job

The Nicest Job in Britain has the potential to affect thousands of people in a hugely positive way - it certainly lives up to its label.

Each week will be different. And day to day duties will be dependent on the needs of the people we're helping. From fundraising initiatives, to media campaigns, to decorating a workspace - the role is designed to help in whichever way required.

Luke's Journey

From showcasing those already at it to highlighting the power of maximising it, the Nicest Job in Britain is all about doing more good.

The campaign reached over 95 countries from as far afield as Australia and Uganda, leading to over 30,000 site visitors and over 80,000 YouTube views.

45 charities from across the UK signed up for a week's worth of help and over 28,000 votes were cast for the inspirational candidates. All in all equating to a PR reach of 300 million.

The Shortlist

Lots of brilliant entries were submitted, with singing, acting and creatively gifted candidates producing share-worthy videos. Allowing us to spread the word through views, shares and votes. And after a hugely successful voting period, the applicants were whittled down to a shortlist of 8. All of whom were invited to a dedicated interview day with a panel of judges including leading UA representatives and British Gas Marketing Manager Felicity Ashley.

Shortlist

Applicants gathered at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham and were asked by judges to explain why they would be best suited for the role in an impressive interview round. Friends and family were invited to accompany the candidates, all enjoying an evening of entertainment and a re-run of each application video before Luke Cameron was announced as the chosen candidate to take on the role.

And So It Began

Visiting Charities

Aside from the positive impact of the application process, just one week into the role, long-term benefits have already emerged. Luke visited the first charity, Resources for Autism, and took part in active group sessions aimed at improving the confidence and social skills of autistic young adults. He also educated those working at Resources for Autism about their charity entitlement to Google ad words grants, which is something that they are now working to put in place to benefit them for years to come.

Social Media Featured

The hunt for someone to take on the Nicest Job in Britain was launched in September 2014, the role itself kicked off in January 2015 and the success of this year has already led to plans to repeat the opportunity and to kick off similar charity-focused projects elsewhere in the world.
