We advertise all of our vacancies, excluding short term freelance assignments, on the BBC Careers website. Please visit the search and apply pages.
Once you have applied for a role, you'll receive an email saying that we have received your application. This will be reviewed by our Recruitment team who will compare your application against criteria for the role and will work with the hiring manager to select a range of candidates who will be invited to interview.
The next stage involves interviews with the line manager and members of the team you have applied to join. We have created some tips to help you prepare for an interview at the BBC. Depending on the role you have applied for there may be a range of technical, professional or psychometric tests used to assess your knowledge, skills and experience.
If you are successful at this stage, we will give you a call to let you know. If you haven't been successful at interview stage, we will try to provide feedback on your performance. Unfortunately, owing to the number of applications we receive, we cannot offer feedback to candidates who don't make it to the interview phase.
With such a wide range of roles available at the BBC, the recruitment process differs depending on the role you are applying for. Most freelance-based roles, especially in TV and radio production, follow a separate process. Find out more.
The BBC has a comprehensive Access Service that provides assistance to disabled candidates and employees seeking reasonable adjustments. The Access Service will support candidates who need reasonable adjustments to ensure these are made as required at every stage of the recruitment and selection process. Once a job offer has been made, the Access Service will undertake a workplace assessment to indentify appropriate adjustments and will work with employees to implement those adjustments.
Typical adjustments in the BBC have included communication support for deaf or hard of hearing employees, a note taker, assistive technology, workplace equipment and assistance travelling to, from and within work.
