Rizzle Kicks offer 150 work experiences placements to young adults


Chart stars Rizzle Kicks are offering work placements to up to 150 young people who will be recruited to work on their new video.

The group - whose hits include "Mama Do The Hump" - will offer places to 16-to-24-year-olds to help them get a break into the workplace.

The duo teamed up with the work experience initiative GoThinkBig to give young recruits a chance to work on the promo for new single Lost Generation.

They can help out as stage hands, make-up artists, extras, camera crew and many other positions in the production process.

Jordan Stephens of the group said: "We want to give kids the kind of break we got. There are so many talented young people across the UK who all too often don't get the chance to prove themselves in a real work environment."

Hopefuls can apply to help out the production team from today at www.gothinkbig.co.uk, which has been launched by O2 and Bauer Media.
