Following a HUGELY triumphant BF3, Battlefront is returning for a fourth series in 2012 – but this time we’re doing things a little differently… 

Previously on Battlefront, campaigners have achieved incredible feats across a number of different campaigns. They’ve inspired thousands of young people to fight for what they believe in and get involved in bringing about change. They’ve campaigned everywhere from the House of Commons to music festivals; from parliament to SBTV – breaking records, adding sign-ups to the organ donor register, creating 1000 work placements – and much, much more. To say we’re proud would be the understatement of the millennium. 

But this year, we’ve decided to focus all our campaigners’ attention on ONE issue… youth unemployment. It’s the issue everyone’s talking about and for good reason: there are over one million young people unemployed today, a quarter of them have been out of work for over a year. We’re living in a 28-billion pound time bomb, according to a recent study by the Commission On Youth Employment – young people are ready to work but jobs are few and far between. 

Battlefront wants to make itself heard on this crucial issue. But Battlefront 2012 is going to do things differently. We’ll have four Battlefront campaigners but instead of casting volunteers who are at school or uni, this time Battlefront will hire and pay the fab four as employees. We’re advertising the positions as jobs and campaigners will be hired on a fixed-term full-time paid contract for the duration of the campaign. 

Campaigners will need to be 17-23-years-old, passionate, driven, inspirational and currently unemployed or currently under-employed. They’ll need to be great on the telly too. 

On their nationwide youth employment campaign – that will live online and Channel 4 - our four Battlefronters will be helped by campaign experts, top celebs and the entire Battlefront crew. 

It’s one-team; one-dream this time – and it’s going to be awesome.
