Scheme Overview

You will undertake training while working alongside news teams creating content for multiple platforms. You’ll get hands-on experience involving researching, writing and broadcasting news.

We offer general journalism trainee places around the UK which means you could be working in one of our newsrooms or news programmes in London, Salford, Cardiff, Shetland or Orkney. 

The scheme takes 10 months to complete and will equip you with the skills to move into a permanent role at the BBC.

How much will I be paid?

The salary for the year will be £21,216. If you are based in London, the salary is £25,776 per annum.
