apprenticeships at bbc

The BBC is the world’s leading public service broadcaster. Funded primarily through the television licence fee, the BBC provides audiences in the UK with high-quality and distinctive services across television, radio and online. In the UK the BBC provides 10 network television services, 10 network radio services, 46 radio services in the nations and regions of the UK, plus an extensive online presence. The BBC also delivers impartial news and information to audiences around the globe through the World Service. The BBC offers a wide range of careers in the areas of journalism, broadcasting and technology, as well as corporate roles such as HR, legal, finance and administration.

Our aim is simple – to enrich people’s lives with programmes and services that inform, educate and entertain by being the most creative organisation in the world.

But we don’t focus simply on what we do – we also care how we do it. We have six values, or standards, which people across the BBC share. They represent the expectation we have for ourselves and each other, they guide our day-to-day decisions and the way we behave.
