Runner (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 20 September 2017
It was very hard work, long hours, little respect given and an air of arrogance from everyone who actually worked there. But it was good experience for me considering I was young and it was my first in field job.
Researcher/Runner (Former Employee) – London – 4 April 2015
I had the most amazing time working for the BBC. It was both spontaneous and fun. I learnt so much from researching historical information to digging up ancient archive. I learnt a lot about the process of making a TV documentary including pre and post production. What I loved the most was that it was a dynamic role. I wasn't always in one place and I wasn't doing the same thing which made working for the BBC very exciting. I travelled to so many beautiful areas in London helping out my colleagues, doing market research and purchasing items for shoots. My co-workers were extremely warm, welcoming and friendly. They explained everything I had to do clearly and were very helpful and approachable. The management was well organised and calm. Despite being busy they always helped and kept everything under control. I felt that my job wasn't very difficult however sometimes it was hard to find relevant archive footage for the documentary. However the most enjoyable part was that it was a lively environment, I wasn't just doing one task. Everyday I was doing something new and going to places I have never been before.
