Receptionist (Former Employee) – Salford – 1 August 2017
Working at the BBC was great, all of the teams were so interesting and talented. I often met celebrities which taught me a very high level of professionalism which I admire. This job taught me so many things, that I still use in my day to day and work life.

TV Extra (Former Employee) – Manchester – 26 July 2017
Friendly cast and crew members assure you are fully informed of what you need to do. The nature of the job can mean you may be on set for hours completing various tasks. You learn alot about how professional filming is done and how you should conduct yourself whilst on set.
Animator (Former Employee) – Bristol – 17 July 2017
I secured valuable work experience at the BBC for their listening project. I was tasked with producing a film based on audio tracks from the BBC Listening Project. Which took me 5 months to complete. I had a lot of support from the BBC in terms of Facilities and Feedback as well as a huge amount of creative freedom.
Absolutely love working for BBC News but no job security for freelance and money not great
Freelance Cameraman (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 10 July 2017
Shooting and editing news for the BBC sure beats working for a living - which I've done as well and it sucks. The real downside is I'm freelance so zero job security and the pay hasn't really increased in the last 15 years. Also if you take a job it is really hard to get career progression because nobody leaves and you have to wait for the old gits to drop dead on air before they make way for the hundreds of people waiting for a job to open.
TV Producer (Former Employee) – London – 6 July 2017
Working at the BBC is never dull! Everyday offered different challenges and opportunities. It was a pleasure to work alongside such bright and well-motivated colleagues. Opportunities for career advancement are many and varied. Pay is generally good. Don't expect fat expense accounts or company cars, but the work itself is very satisfying, especially if you enjoy working to tight deadlines. Management is generally supportive. Hours can be long and days can be hectic. (Expect to eat "on the go") But the work is mostly fun. You also have the kudos of working for one of the best-known and most respected organisations in the World.
