Television

Our culture is creative, hard-working, fast-paced and flexible
Want to create and broadcast TV watched by more than 85% of the UK population?

We produce more television than any other broadcaster.

You could help introduce audiences to brand new British drama like The Hour and Call The Midwife, award-winning factual programmes such as Africa and Frozen Planet and comedies like Miranda.

We’re responsible for commissioning, producing, scheduling and broadcasting the content of all the BBC’s TV channels in the UK. Our teams are dedicated to producing the highest standard of content for the BBC’s ten national TV services.

The world of broadcast media is changing and we have to change with it

Our culture is very creative, hard-working, fast-paced and flexible. We need people who will make the most of these opportunities and can help us to continue to produce world-class content for a growing number of platforms and audiences. In return we’ll give you the tools to grow and develop your skills in new areas and ways of working.

Work with us

We offer an incredibly diverse range of job and career opportunities, and recruit largely on a fixed-term or freelance contract basis. We are supported by a core staff of Commissioners, Executives and Producers.

Specialised craft vacancies such as Camera Operators, Editors, Lighting Technicians and Directors tend to be filled on a need basis by independent contractors. We work in locations across the UK including Drama in the BBC Wales Roath Lock studios, our Natural History Unit in Bristol, Comedy in London and Children’s TV in Salford to name a few.
