Best Places to Work: 2017 (#18)
I worked at BBC full-time (More than 10 years)
The passion and pride of the employees as employees really care about the output. Also the variety of roles the BBC offers from production to engineering.
Often unfair criticism of the organisation in the press. As with many organisations budgets are been cut yet expectations of the service provision haven’t changed which can be challenging.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BBC (Lincoln, England) in November 2017.
Started with a half an hour test compiling a news bulletin and then recording it.
Then went onto an interview with news editor and managing editor of the station.
They grilled me on a variety of topics and robustly questioned why I'd structured my news bulletin the way I did. Much more specific questions than I'd had in the past, be prepared to think on your toes and link your ideas to topics they've suggested.
