The BBC is Calling for Trainees, it Pays Too

From the BBC site:

What’s on offer?

  • a one year contract paying £19k (non-London) or £23k (including London weighting) plus we cover some travel and accommodation expenses too
  • first-class training – led by the BBC’s College of Journalism
  • mentoring throughout the scheme from a senior BBC journalist
  • the chance to arrange a three-week work placement in an area of news of your choice during the year

What you need to apply:

To be considered for the JTS you need to be an avid follower of news. You regularly read the local and national newspapers, watch television and listen to radio. You also have an excellent grasp of social media.

There is no age limit and the scheme welcomes career-changers who have ambitions to work in broadcast news but have been pursuing a career in other industries.
