So who are we looking for?

The BBC need people who reflect the diversity of the UK so we can create fantastic programmes and services for our many audiences.

We are more concerned with your talent, potential and passion to achieve great things with us than with your academic background.

You will already be a good writer with the potential to be even better. Maybe you've demonstrated this through student magazines, community or hospital radio, blogging, or work experience at a local newspaper?

You'll need to be able to write quickly but accurately. An eye for an arresting image would also be an advantage - our TV programmes and websites thrive on great pictures.

We have a team dedicated to supporting staff with visual, hearing, mobility and other disabilities to play a full part in making the BBC the most creative organisation in the world.
