Episode Summary

The Employment Exchange
Frank's Job Centre (Where it seems he spends a lot of time) is under new management. Mr Bradshaw, the new manager, is told by his staff about the difficulty of finding Spencer a job that he can keep. Bradshaw doesn't believe anybody can be that bad but begins to change his mind when Frank comes in reporting that he has lost his job as a window cleaner - the first day's work ending with Frank and his workmate hanging from a rope halfway down a tower block. Frank also tells of another recent job where he had a job as a security guard - the factory was robbed whilst Frank was out looking for his guard dog which had ran off. Bradshaw sends Frank out on a new job as a removal man. However, on the first morning, Frank backs the removal lorry over the furniture and antiques being unloaded and soon finds himself back at the job centre.

Without any other options and with hesitation, Mr. Bradshaw gives Frank a job at the labour exchange itself. Frank accidentally leaves the contents of a teapot onto an expensive computer and blows it up. Once more Frank is fired and the manager of the labour exchange suggests Frank finds a job in Australia...on a sheep farm!moreless
