Are you thinking of working in the IT industry but aren't quite sure if it would be the right choice for you or not? Perhaps you're already doing something technical like coding or graphics design at school or in your spare time but you'd like a taster of what you might end up doing if it was your job? We're Dock House floor 2 at the BBC. We build apps like iPlayer, iPlayer on TV & Sounds that are enjoyed by millions of people each day & we want to show you how we do it.
You'll spend most of your placement learning about all the different jobs that are required to build some of the UK's most loved apps but when you're not doing that there'll be time to build your own game on the BBC micro:bit or get a sneak peek at some of the cutting edge VR experiences that we're building.

Dock House floor 2 builds experiences that delight & inform millions of users every day – iPlayer mobile, iPlayer on TV & Sounds just to name a few.
