We are committed to developing and growing our own people. If you’re looking to grow your career but don’t have all the required experience for the next move, you are probably looking to develop your skills.
To support you with this, we’ve outlined a number of things you can do.
BBC Careers Hub
The BBC Careers Hub is the new recruitment system which allows you to build your own career profile easily, search for relevant roles and utilise our resources section which includes video, audio and tools to support your application. Recruiters will be able to search the system for candidates suitable for internal jobs and production roles, so as a BBC employee it is vital that you register and create your profile.
Have a discussion with your line manager or with someone in HR about your career aspirations so that they can give you a steer about what might be appropriate for your next step.
This site is specifically designed to put your future firmly in your hands by giving you a set of tools that will help you assess, navigate and plan the direction of your career.
Offering a range of self-assessment exercises, advice and useful links, this site will enable you to understand where you are now, discover where you want to go and provide you with all the tools you need to get there.
The BBC is a huge and diverse organization with an incredible range of careers. However, even here, the idea of moving to a new role or a new department can feel very daunting. We want to give you control over your own career development and empower you to seek out the opportunities on offer.
We’ve worked closely with career development experts to develop a site that caters specifically for BBC employees and anyone who has a BBC email address can get free access in moments.
Our hope is that this site and the tools within will enable you to plan your own career path and get the most from your BBC career.
To begin the login process, visit the Career Management Website and use 'BBC' as your access code.
Have a look at the BBC Academy website. We offer world class training to help you learn new skills or brush up on the latest techniques and trends – take advantage of it.
Opportunities for learning are offered in a variety of ways from formal courses to online learning videos.
There is a catalogue of training courses (this is a Gateway link), which you can search to see if there is training that will help you develop your skills.
These courses will help you broaden your skills, which may help you change the direction of your career if there are no immediate opportunities for the next step up the career ladder.
We offer attachments, which allow you to be released from your current role to work in another BBC job for a particular project or specific time period. Once you have finished the attachment you can return to your original role.
An attachment enables you to gain additional knowledge, skills and experience that you may not already have, or just helps you learn about a different part of the BBC. This may help you to get that next step up the career ladder.
If there is a role, department or division that you are interested in, it may be worth getting in touch with one of the managers there to understand more about what they do.
You may be able to spend a day shadowing someone to get a better understanding of what they do and how you would fit in. Think about how your skills would be transferrable from your current role to the one you are after.
Keep yourself up to date with current trends and practices in the external market. You can do this by attending professional and networking events and conferences.
If you manage a large team or manage significant stakeholders, you may also be eligible for coaching designed to support you in your role.
