The Apprentice: How to apply to be on the show

Fancy showing your business plan off to this lot? (Picture: BBC)

The Apprentice has been a staple on our TV screens since 2005, when Lord Sugar put the first load of candidates through their paces – and first uttered those infamous words ‘You’re fired’ in the boardroom.

While contestants originally showed off their business acumen in a bid to win a job with the mogul, these days it’s all about winning his backing for their businesses, to the tune of £250,000 investment.

We’ve seen some memorable characters pass through the boardroom over the years – several of whom have gone on to greater successes with Lord Sugar’s help.

But if you’ve got grand ambitions to be his next business partner, just how do you go about applying for the series?

We’ve got all the information you need.

How can you apply to be on The Apprentice?

If you want to try your luck on the BBC show we’ve got good news for you – applications for series 17 of The Apprentice are currently open.

You can find the application form, complete with all the details you need to apply, at the show’s official website.

Applicants need to be aged 18 or over and legally entitled to work in the UK without restriction.

As certain tasks may be filmed overseas, you will also need to be fully vaccinated – unless you have a medical exemption – in order to be considered.

The application form involves you answering such questions as ‘what’s the most interesting thing about you?’ and ‘why should you be Lord Sugar’s next business partner?’ as well as uploading a video of yourself.

The closing date for applications is 11:59pm on Friday February 4 2022.

If you make it to the next stage you will be contacted by email by February 19 at the latest to attend either a face-to-face meeting or an online interview.

The next round of interviews will take place either face-to-face in London or online between February 25 and 27, while the final round of the selection process will be held between March 7 and 10.

Those who are successful in making it on to the show will need to be available for a period of up to 13 weeks between March 28 and June 26.

If you apply and have not heard by the end of February, you should assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.

The Apprentice is on BBC One on Thursday at 9pm.
