BBC Production Trainee Scheme 2016 – UK

Deadline: January 25, 2016

To be a great Production Trainee you need to be creative, have lots of fresh programme ideas and have the desire to make great television, radio and online content. If you have something to say and can bring a different and fresh perspective to our programme-making teams then the BBC want to hear from you.

They want creative and passionate people with great ideas, but not necessarily people with academic qualifications. So don’t talk yourself out of this great opportunity.



To apply for the role, you must-

  • Have some relevant experience in a creative environment (but please don’t apply if you have had continuous paid production work in the media industry or at the BBC for longer than 12 months).
  • Have the right to live and work in the UK.

It’s also crucial that you must be able to work flexibly. You’ll be required to move productions every few months, and spend at least one of your work placements in a BBC production centre outside London in either Cardiff, Bristol, Belfast, Glasgow, Birmingham or Salford.


The Production Trainee Scheme runs as an 11 month paid contract.
