IMPORTANT: An update on covid-19

The situation regarding the coronavirus outbreak is developing quickly and the BBC is keen to continue to ensure the safety and wellbeing of people across the BBC, while continuing to protect our services.  To reduce the risk to everyone at the BBC as of Wednesday (18 March) it will not be possible for external visitors to access BBC buildings unless they are essential to our broadcast output. 

How does this affect the BBC recruitment process?

From Wednesday 18th March until further notice all assessments and interviews will be conducted remotely. We recognise that this may not be something you are familiar with and we have pulled together some hints and tips to consider before a video interview –

  • Block out distractions - before you begin your video recording, it’s important to remember that whilst you’re in the comfort of your own home, or in a library, or even a cafe, don’t be overly casual.  You still need to be heard, you need to not be interrupted and you need to make sure that you’re in a place where you can answer the questions to the best of your ability.
  • Preparation - there’s nothing worse than having a technical glitch because you aren’t used to the software. Is your sound on? Is your microphone on? Is the device you’re using in a secure position and at an angle where we can see you clearly?
  • Be authentic - try your hardest to let your true personality shine.  In whatever role you play at the BBC, you'll be given the space and support to let your unique brilliance shine. We are looking for people who share our values, and reflect the diversity of our audience. To get the real you across we would encourage you to make eye contact, avoid watching yourself on the screen and instead, look directly into the camera.
