 “We had a lot of interest in My New Mystery Job from international distributors, but for us, Red Arrow was the best fit: they are very successful at distributing daring social experiment formats like Buying Blind, Meat the Family and Married at First Sight and we are excited that My New Mystery Job will be in the same catalogue. It literally is a life changing format: changing your job can really change your life," Duurt Holman, Creative Director at Stepping Stone Productions said.

The title showcases participants, looking for a life change, sign up for a brand new job…without knowing what it is! Over the following months, the candidates are visited to see how they are enjoying their new jobs – and their new lives – while VTs capture the thoughts of their family and friends. Then, after six months, a decision is made. Their skills, aptitude and work/life aspirations are assessed by leading career experts who help find them surprising new jobs. When a good-fit role is identified, each participant is given a contract.
