The BBC has launched its new BBC Technology Traineeship and finalists are invited to apply at http://bit.ly/BBCTECHTRAINEES
The BBC Technology Traineeship is a ground breaking technology scheme for new graduates. Supported by co-investment from government, the BBC is offering a two year contract to work and train in technology teams across the BBC. This scheme supports graduates while they study towards an MSc in Digital Broadcast Technology accredited by Birmingham City University, at the same time as gaining invaluable industry experience.
Trainees won’t have to pay any university fees, the BBC will pay a Trainee’s salary of £20k pa while they build up an excellent CV. This will put them in a great position to apply for jobs at the BBC and across the wider broadcasting industry once they’ve completed the programme.
As well as being passionate about how things work and solving problems, we are looking for people who are energetic team players and good with people. Applicants will have a good honours degree (at least a 2:1 or equivalent) in Broadcast Engineering, Broadcast Technology, Electronics, Physics, Computer Science or a closely related subject. We will also need evidence that you have done something relevant to the role and have a proven interest in technology.
Graduates will have a main BBC base, spending periods away on study or work placements. Through a series of academic modules and industrial experience, the scheme will grow the next generation of Broadcast Engineers to help drive cutting edge innovation in broadcast technology. Graduates will develop an excellent theoretical and practical understanding of operational and technical systems and equipment and their use in the fast-moving broadcasting industry.
The scheme is open to applications from Monday 22nd April until May 20th. Go to http://bit.ly/BBCTECHTRAINEES for full details now
