The Nicest Job in Britain, simply put, is exactly that. A well paid role (£30k p/a), travelling the country, working with a different charity every week for a year – helping them tell their stories through the The Nicest Job social channels and blog.
When the programme was first launched in 2014, we had no idea what to expect. But what we quickly learned is that when you combine passion, a great opportunity and social media – great things can happen.
Reaching over 100 countries worldwide and generating media coverage reaching over 1 billion people, it’s safe to say that The Nicest Job in Britain was well received.
When the first cycle ended in December 2015, the question we asked ourselves was “now what?” – how could we build on such a successful initiative and make an even greater, lasting impact?
Working with Luke Cameron, we helped him to establish NicestJobs.com – the UK’s first charity focused video based employer brand and recruitment platform. Working with charities to showcase their causes, their offices and their people – NicestJobs.com showcases what great places to work the UK charity sector has to offer. But it doesn’t stop there. Disruption is at the heart of the NicestJobs.com platform, with applications for vacancies being accepted only in video format. This is the result of the hugely successful application stage for The Nicest Job in Britain – where a 60 second video application is required to show off your skills, passion and suitability for the role.
So with the recent launch of NicestJobs.com, The Nicest Job in Britain has also returned. Back for a 2nd cycle, the competition is already fierce – with candidates campaigning for the job from the day the vacancy was announced. From daily videos, to community challenges, to celebrity endorsements – The Nicest Job in Britain has got people going, fighting for a chance to pursue their passion and live their dream. On the very simplest level – this is what it’s all about.
This time around, the successful applicant for The Nicest Job will work with 40 charities over the course of their 12 months – supporting causes that specialise in animal welfare, mental health, sexual health and many others. To find out more about the charities that are being supported, visit the The Nicest Job website.
Applications close on 16th September, with the winner being announced on 3rd October. Then beginning in November, the new National Philanthropy Manager will travel the country, working with 40 inspirational charities. Be sure to follow their journey on The Nicest Job social channels – Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn.
