What is Project BBC T?

Project BBC T aims to bring together existing BBC content and make some new multi-platform material for 12-16 year olds. We want to harness the inherent attitudes and imaginations of our target audience to create some truly groundbreaking content experiences, where British teen life is central to what we do.

Who are we looking for?

We're looking for motivated, passionate people to help us strengthen the BBC's connection with British teens. This team will form a hotbed of creativity central to the success of the project. Just like the audience, the team will need to harness the power and interactivity of digital media that is so critical to this generation. The team will need to work collaboratively to successfully interpret, filter and communicate the world of teens, to teens.

The Team:


Digital Writers

Do you harbour a desire to influence and entertain others through telling stories and reporting on teen interests? We are looking for individuals who can bring flair and confidence to our teen output. You will need to understand broadband, tv and radio platforms and be able to spot the hottest trends a mile off. Your research, storytelling and communication skills are second to none and deadlines are a way of life.

Can you build a webpage with just a text editor and Photoshop? Is your HTML as solid as it gets? Can you collaborate with web programmers to integrate a web interface into the backend? Are you familiar with acronyms like (X)HTML, CSS, JS, DOM? Do you a relish an evening in with Flash (ActionScript 2) or do you ponder accessibility, usability and user experience issues? Don't worry - we do too. As long as you can prove you dislike IE as much as us - come and hang out and help us build some great content / apps.
