Working with us: online editorial content

The BBC does not have a specific online commissioning team. Different commissioning teams across different parts of the business look after the editorial content for the BBCs various online products and platforms.

Suppliers interested in pitching games, interactive experiences, mobile applications or design and UX services should visit the Technology and software page to find out how to work with the BBC.
