Disabilities are recognised by the Equality Act 2010: “A person has a disability if they have a physical or mental impairment, and the impairment has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. This definition includes impairments or medical conditions such as Cancer, HIV or MS.”

Who are we looking for?

The BBC runs a variety of schemes across journalism, production, technology and business and we make offers to over 150 people each year. We look for the best and most diverse new talent to help us keep the BBC as the most creative organisation in the world. The schemes are open for application at different times of year but all start in September.

Some are suitable for school leavers and others for graduates and each will have different entry requirements so you will need to check with the scheme you are interested in.

Our commitment to you

We are committed to making reasonable adjustments wherever necessary. We regularly audit our systems and buildings to ensure accessibility for all staff and visitors with disabilities.

Our BBC Disability Access Services provide assistance for candidates who have successfully secured an interview and may require reasonable adjustment. 

The team will work with the interviewee to establish what additional support is required and where possible, ensure reasonable adjustments are implemented to support a successful interview.
