The Olympics of the workplace: young people competing to be the best at their job

Have you ever been to a hairdressing competition? Or ever seen plumbers battle to install a toilet the quickest?

Among them, British joiners, engineers and restaurant servers.

For ITV's On Assignment, Charlene White watched this year's competition, which took place in Hungary’s capital Budapest, and met those fighting to win gold.
