Role Responsibility

On this year-long programme you’ll rotate across a range of products – from iPlayer to News, from Sport to CBeebies.

You’ll work on real projects with senior members of UX, as well as technical and editorial teams from across the BBC. Along the way you’ll gain unparalleled experience, as you muck in with user research, information architecture, content analysis, interaction design, visual design, prototyping and much more.

Are you the right candidate?

  • You have an outstanding portfolio you can share with us
  • You’re dying to get your teeth into some knotty design challenges and solve them with your amazing design and communication skills
  • Your interest might be wireframes, user flows and personas. Or layout, colour and typography. And maybe you’ve even got something special up your sleeve, like a love of building prototypes, illustration or motion graphic design. Whatever you’re great at, we want to hear about it
  • Of course you know how to use Adobe Creative Suite products. But more importantly you’re happy to pick up whatever new package best suits the task at hand
  • You’ll always be considering the user and you’ll be almost indecently curious about their needs. You can explain the reasoning behind your design decisions to people from a variety of backgrounds. And you’re able to balance what the user needs against what we can realistically achieve


We like people who are:

  • Enthusiastic about what they do, and a delight to work with;
  • Motivated and full of ideas;
  • Geeky about design;
  • Geeky about technology


Package Description

  • Excellent career progression – the BBC offers great opportunities for employees to seek new challenges and work in different areas of the organisation
  • Unrivalled training and development opportunities – our in-house Academy hosts a wide range of internal and external courses and certification
  • Benefits- We offer a competitive salary package, a flexible 35-hour working week for work-life balance and 26 days holiday with the option to buy an extra 5 days, a defined pension scheme and discounted dental, health care, gym and much more
