Our last #JobFindFriday in conjunction with the BBC World News is a unique but yet fundamentally important role within the BBC on an international stage – Multi-Languages

#NWDJobFact – Did you know that the BBC is available in more than 200 countries worldwide, around 300 million households watched weekly by over 115 million viewers.

Job Introduction

We’re running a work experience scheme based in the BBC’s World Service Languages and BBC News. The World Service is one of the world’s leading news broadcasters – in Languages we currently broadcast in twenty-nine languages, including English. The World Service Group, all the international parts of the BBC, has a weekly audience of over 308 million people around the world. The BBC reports from more locations than any other international broadcaster, and increasingly we’re training up bilingual reporters, who can bring us the story in English and another language. We’re trusted and respected by our audiences, and we’re a multi-media broadcaster, on radio, TV and online. World Service Languages has recently launched TV bulletins in eleven languages, in addition to its long-established Persian channel and 24 hour BBC Arabic. We’re a dynamic, ambitious, challenging news organisation bringing the world’s stories to BBC News, at New Broadcasting House in the heart of London.

Role Responsibility

We’ll give you the chance to experience life at BBC World Service and BBC News, including what it is like working in two languages – English and one other of the World Service languages listed below. You don’t necessarily need journalism skills before you start your work experience; we’ll give you ten days training in radio, TV and online journalism. You’ll spend the rest of your time in the relevant language service within World Service, and in other News and Current Affairs programmes across BBC News. You’ll meet a whole range of people here, from bilingual reporters, producers, editors, presenters, camera operators to online and social media journalists. You’ll come out with a good idea of the wide-ranging journalism that goes on at the BBC World Service and across the rest of BBC News.
