For the second year running, BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ Tim Westwood will be searching for an Intern to assist him in keeping his lifestyle in order, the DJ announced yesterday.
He’s offering a winner the opportunity to hang out in the studio and help him with his daily demands.
We’re told ‘The Intern’ – which will be mostly for entertainment purposes – will work with Tim and his team, making sure his music guests are happy as well as carrying out some slightly more mundane and unglamorous tasks.
He’s searching for an enthusiastic individual with their eye on the global urban scene and, more importantly, someone who doesn’t mind nipping out to the shop to pick up a big sandwich or two.
Westwood says: “Do you think you can add some swag-juice to my show? If you think you’ve got what it takes get online now. Westwood wants to hear from you!”
In order to be considered, applicants must submit a 150 word piece outlining why they are the right person for the position and what swaggeristic energy they’d bring to the show. To apply visit bbc.co.uk/1xtra/westwood
From the entries, Tim and his team will pick three finalists to proceed to the next stage. The three remaining applicants will undergo some further gruelling tasks in London to determine who has what it takes to make it as ‘The Intern’ 2011.
