Powerful local businesswoman, Jamina McNulty of McNulty Leisure, has agreed to use the Job Centre to recruit new sales staff. Trish is determined to pull out all the stops to impress her, even having a hot tub hotline installed by phone engineer Andy.

Andy takes a shine to Natalie and Karl realises it is going to take extreme measures to see him off.

In her desperation to get the whole team putting in 100 per cent, Trish makes the fatal mistake of lying to her office nemesis Angela - with disastrous consequences.
