YouTuber accused of ‘privilege’ after posting creative way to bag BBC job

A YouTuber’s "creative" way of grabbing the attention of the would-be employers at his dream job has split public opinion.

Max Fosh, 25, pitched up outside Radio One Studios in his motor with one goal: a job.

In a video he shared with his 306,000 subscribers, the former Harrow student appealed for work at the popular radio station.

He did so by printing a massive version of his CV and sticking it on the roof of his car and sticking it outside the windows of prospective bosses.

As reported by Mail Online, he says at the end of the recently posted video: “All I'm after Radio 1, is to present some of your online content. Send me to Big Weekend, send me to Glastonbury, send me out on the street, and I promise you some good content”.

He shared his stunt online and was praised for his creativity – but some blasted him for using his ‘privilege’ to cheat his way to work.

The YouTuber parked his red Volkswagen outside the BBC building complete with a QR code for prospective colleagues to scan.

He tweeted: “Hi @BBCR1 , I’ve printed my CV onto my car and parked it outside the studio. There’s a QR code which I reckon you should watch. Ta x”

The wannabe presenter's CV explains he went to Harrow School for his A Levels before going on to study English Literature and Business at Newcastle University.

He says he is proficient with Final Cut X and Audacity Audio Editing – and once got a shout out on the radio.

Some Twitter users were impressed with his outside-the-box thinking, with one writing: “Give it up for @max_fosh for his creativity and hustle. Hope you snag the job mate!”

But others were not so taken, calling the stunt a way of boosting expectations and “excluding working class talent”.

One person said: “I see the rich kids are at it again”.

And another said: “Just shows the things you can do with money, didn’t think for a rich person it would be such a task to get a job at a company like the BBC.”

But one important BBC employee was impressed. Radio One head Aled Hayden Jones sent a video back to the popular YouTuber asking to talk.

Aled said: “Hi Max Fosh, i'm Aled Haydn Jone, head of Radio One. You see I got your QR code and video, thank you for your offer it was great to see what you can do and meet your out of work actor flatmate.

“On the radio front, I'm afraid i've only just offered 46 new presenters a slot on Radio One between Christmas and January, but I find your suggestion of presenting our online content interesting so DM me, and let's chat.

“P.S you really should follow the socials of the station you want to work for.”
