Further details

A star-studded cast reminisce about the rite-of-passage that is your first job. With badly paid, monotonous and at times unpleasant first jobs gracing the bottom of their CVs, these celebs are well placed to provide a guide to the perils and pitfalls of the job virgin. School leavers take note, as they regale viewers with tales from their working pasts, including the good, the bad and the bizarre.

Assuming the role of informal career advisor, they share anecdotes from a time before the fame and money, when they were scrabbling around to earn some much needed cash, from Will Self extoling the virtues of being a street sweeper in Barnet to Jimmy Carr giving a master class on skiving.
