Following a nationwide campaign to find the perfect person to take on the role of the Nicest Job in Britain, the prestigious title has been awarded to Luke Cameron. The 25-year-old creator of the ‘Good Deed Diary’, Luke won over the panel with his passion for charity, his business acumen and personable manner.

The Nicest Job in Britain attracted many inspiring people from across the UK, and the creative juices were definitely flowing. From poems to raps to adventure-themed montages, the applications proved there are lots of great people who are looking to do more good.

Eight brilliant shortlisted candidates faced the judges last month, each impressing greatly with their creativity and personality. The judging panel consisted of UA’s CEO and UA’s Non-exec Chairman, Giles Hankinson and Andy Homer,  along with Managing Partner of VIVA, Gary Blowers and Head of Acquisition and Brand at British Gas, Felicity Ashley. They conducted eight interviews throughout the day before they came to a decision.

Luke is thrilled to have been offered the role, saying “I’ve been running a ‘good deed diary’ all year, promising to undertake one good deed every day. I’m delighted to have been selected for the Nicest Job in Britain, as I’ll now continue that diary throughout 2015 across the length and breadth of the country. I’ll turn it from a small project to a way of  life. One I am delighted to live.”

We’re proud to have been a part of the recruitment process and are looking forward to supporting Luke in his new job. His aim will be to help 45 charities or third sector organisations across the country in just one year. Luke will travel the country, offering all kinds of help, from fundraising to energy services to decorating duties.

Check back to see how Luke’s getting on as he sets off on his quest to do more good with the Nicest Job in Britain.
