BBC Journalism Talent Pool.

Welcome to the BBC Journalism Talent Pool site. Are you ready for a move to BBC Journalism?

We're looking for trained, experienced professionals to join our UK-wide Journalism Talent Pool.

We are not currently recruiting.

Are you ready for a move to BBC Journalism?

A number of people who passed our previous assessments now have permanent positions, contracts or shifts with us in locations including:

The Multimedia Newsroom (TV and Radio) ♦ The Weather Centre ♦ 1Xtra News ♦ Newsround ♦ Radio WM (Birmingham) ♦ BBC Wales (TV and Radio) ♦ The Asian Network ♦ World Service News and Current Affairs ♦ BBC London (online) ♦ BBC Manchester (online) ♦ Today programme, Radio Four.

We’re also keen to hear from people with a real understanding – or direct experience – of the issues facing the diverse communities which make up the UK.  We positively encourage applicants from a wide social and cultural background and from people who have a disability.   We have an access team whose job it is to ensure disabled staff have the reasonable adjustments they need to do their job well.

Joining the Journalism Talent Pool is all about what you know, not who you know:

  • What you know about finding great stories and telling them well.
  • What you know about serving our audiences.
  • What you know about the BBC's core values.
  • What you know about the people and events that are making the news.
  • What you know about finding - and cultivating - good contacts.

If you pass our rigorous assessment and interview process, you’ll be able to apply for positions advertised within the BBC for six months. We’ll help you connect with the editors who are looking for fresh talent. And we’ll help you to give the best account of yourself.

Use the index at the top to navigate around the site to find out more about the talent pool.
