What we look for

  • We are not looking at qualifications- there is no academic entry requirement. We are focused on you having a passion and curiosity, whether that be for TV, Radio, Online/Digital and be motivated to learn the production process from start to finish.
  • In your application, we want to hear about your hobbies, personal interests, skills or even work experience you may have, which has inspired you to take this next step!
  • Do as much research as possible about our roles and the content we make. There is lots of resources out there to find out more about what we do.
  • Be a great team player – on this scheme, you will be working on real programmes with our production teams, learning and gaining experience every day. Working in a professional environment you may be faced with some challenges along the way!
  • Be flexible and adaptable due to the pace of work, learning and production demands – working at the BBC isn’t always a Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 job.

Due to health and safety considerations, we cannot accept applications from individuals under the age of 18 at the time of the apprenticeship. There is no upper age limit.
