User Experience (UX) Designer
We design the BBC’s amazing digital experiences, from apps to websites, from BBC News to CBeebies. We also design the ‘behind the scenes’ employee experiences to help make these happen. In UX&D you’ll get to shape the tools that help people across the BBC unleash their full creative potential. Working together with users and colleagues, you’ll take a holistic, human-centred approach to help create a BBC that’s truly fit for the Internet age.
As a User Experience Designer, in your first assignment you’ll work alongside designers, UX architects and design researchers to give staff and partners of the BBC the best possible experiences. That could mean working on publishing systems that producers create and publish content online, to production systems for News, Radio and TV broadcasting, or systems that provide vital data and insights into content creators and commissioners.
Human-centred design approaches are a fundamental part of how we work, and in this role you’ll be applying them in a pragmatic, problem-solving environment. You’ll collaborate closely with those across the BBC who use the systems you create, getting under the skin of the future of content production and ways of working.
As a member of BBC UX&D, you’ll join over 100 user experience professionals across the UK with a global audience, a range of thrilling challenges, and great learning and development opportunities. You’ll have a chance to take on a range of varied challenges across all kinds of BBC products and services, both Audience-facing and for employees as you move between assignments in your career at the BBC.

- You make sound judgements and are comfortable working through ambiguity.
- You keep track of time, plan your own work, and keep people informed in a timely way.
