    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BBC (London, England) in March 2013.

    Interview

    it's called a board, usually two or three or sometimes four people on the panel. Some are easier than others but generally they use a meant-o-be-transparent tick box system. speak for as long as you can on each question and hopefully you'll get the boxes ticked. unfortunately they have a tendency to already have someone in mind for the job so if you don't get it, that isn't generally a reflection on you

    Interview Questions

    • the usual, but they may put a scenario to you about your day to day job and ask you how to tell how you would resolve it. there may be a good cop bad cop   Answer Question
