Yes, however you can only undertake one work placement per year, so we would encourage you to think carefully about which type of placement you want to apply for.
Due to the volume of application forms we receive, it can sometimes take a while to review them all. However, you will receive notification from the Work Experience team at least two weeks before the start of the placement, to inform you if you have been successfully short listed or not.
All active placement details are published on the site. However, you can register to receive placement details up to 12 months in advance by email. This will ensure that you are kept informed of future work placement opportunities at the BBC.
This depends on which placement you apply for, but in all cases we are looking for evidence of your passion and knowledge of the area. Please read the placement description and criteria carefully and ensure that your application is clear and well presented. Try and think of specific examples to demonstrate your understanding of and interest in the placement.
Take the time to research the area of the BBC you applying to work in. This will help you to get the most out of your time with us and demonstrate your passion and commitment.
