Kick-Start Your Career at the BBC. If you want to increase your chances of successfully applying for a role at the BBC then attending a pre-application workshop might be just the boost you need.

It can be difficult to stand out from the crowd, particularly in a highly competitive job market. That’s why the BBC has designed a day that offers advice on creating a great CV, improving your interview techniques, navigating BBC application processes and the chance to take part in simulated assessment activities.
