The BBC is offering 45 local apprenticeships in its radio stations across the UK as part of Director-General Tony Hall’s pledge to open up the BBC to people from a wide range of backgrounds.
Applications open in April, and successful candidates will start their jobs in September, working as Apprentice Broadcast Assistants (England, Channel Islands) and Apprentice Content Assistants (Wales, Scotland and N Ireland).
As an Apprentice Broadcast Assistant (England, Channel Islands) or Apprentice Content Assistant (Scotland, N Ireland and Wales) you’ll find yourself helping to research and set up items on a breakfast programme, out and about gathering stories in your local area or coming up with some great ideas for a show.
You can find out more information on the BBC website, or listen to the following audio clips – these are freely available for you to download and run on your own radio station, if you wish. You can also download and print the flyer.
