My career began at the BBC and it was only when I joined that I understood the many different opportunities within the organisation.
It often comes as a surprise that the BBC has so many entry levels in tech for apprentices as well as graduates. As some of the closing dates are coming up I thought it might be helpful to provide links to some of the schemes.
Locations include: Belfast, Birmingham,Cardiff, Glasgow, London, Salford, Nottingham, Plymouth
They provide a powerful pathway into broadcast careers – and are obviously always completely up to date. Do consider applying and alert young people to them. If you have a disability you will also have the option to go through our Extend Hub when you apply.

And don’t ever think – ‘I don’t know enough, I’m not good enough’ – the key requirements are an interest in tech and being keen to learn. I often think back to that box numbered ad I read while I was still a student. Applying for the opportunity changed my entire life.
