Diversity

The BBC’s vision is to be the most creative organisation in the world. To achieve this we need to employ unique and talented people from a range of different backgrounds - people like you. We believe that new ideas, ground-breaking technology and programmes that push creative boundaries happen when you have a diverse team of people who each contribute new and different ways of thinking.  We also know that people are at their most creative when they feel included and valued.  That’s why diversity is one of our core values.  It’s at the heart of the Royal Charter and in the unique way we are funded.  We continually strive to be relevant to all our licence fee payers, reflecting different voices across the UK, impartially and independently.

To do that well we need people who are as diverse as the audiences we serve. People who will bring their talents and experiences to work in a way that enhances creativity and helps us connect with our audiences.

We pride ourselves on providing an unrivalled Access Service for disabled employees or job applicants who need adjustments to their work or during the selection process. As chair of the Cultural Diversity Network we lead the broadcast media industry in supporting and developing diverse staff. We work collaboratively with our three staff forums: BBC Black and Asian Forum, BBC Disabled Staff Forum and BBC Pride, who act as our critical friends and work hard for their members organising internal and external networking events and raising awareness about issues which affect their members.

If you want to work in a stimulating environment where everybody’s differences are recognised and valued, then the BBC is for you. Your talent, creativity and openness to new ideas are the only things that matter to us.
