The BBC’s Local and Regional Broadcast services are at the heart of communities across the UK and Channel Islands; telling stories that matter to people close to home, on TV, radio, online and via our wider digital services. Many of today’s media industry leaders started out their careers working on the BBC’s local and regional programmes. Through this apprenticeship opportunity, you could be part of the next generation.


Working alongside our journalists and programme makers are a dedicated team of Broadcast Operators who make sure the operational, craft and technical side of our business runs smoothly.  This Apprenticeship is an exciting entry level opportunity to join the BBC in towns and cities right across the country; helping to sustain the reliability and quality of the BBC’s core services at local and regional level.


This role could be based in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Belfast, Glasgow, Jersey, Norwich or London, and you'll be able to select your preferred location when you apply.


We will teach you the following skills via a combination of classroom based learning at College (and with the BBC Academy) and via on the job ‘learning by doing’.


This is an apprenticeship role aimed at school leavers and non-graduates where we do not expect you to come with prior experience. You just need to be over 18 at time of starting in September and meet the following criteria; 

  • A passion for all things technical and digital and not afraid to solve problems…you don’t need to have loads of experience, but you DO need to have a logical mind, an eye and ear for detail and passion to learn.
  • 5 GCSEs at Grades A*-C or Equivalent (Including Maths, English) – a relevant science such as physics or computer science would also be a plus
  • A strong interest in the BBC’s local programmes and the technologies that support them.
  • A positive, can-do attitude; someone who loves working in a team


We’ll teach you the rest!
