Journalists, BBC Breakfast

Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

Job Introduction

BBC Breakfast is looking for broadcast producers to work on the UK’s most successful breakfast TV show. More than six million people watch us every day and we need people who have the determination and imagination to deliver fantastic content to our audience.  This is a brilliant opportunity to join our talented team at MediaCityUK and work on one BBC’s biggest programmes.

Role Responsibility

As a Journalist, you play a big part in putting the programme together both at the planning stage and while we’re on air.

You’ll come up with original story ideas, guests and production treatments and carry out background research. You could be working on location, in the studio or the gallery.

Our producers work with colleagues across BBC News and other parts of the corporation.

We expect high quality writing skills and the highest standards of accuracy, impartiality and fair dealing in accordance with the BBC's Editorial values.

Breakfast is on air seven days a week and operates on a 24hr rota so day and night working is part of the job.

Are you the right candidate?

We need people who match our ambition for the programme. The role is demanding and we set high standards. For that reason we expect you will already be a professional TV journalist with experience of working in broadcast daily news.

BBC Breakfast producers get to work on a wide range of stories, so you’ll be creative and resourceful. You’ll need to be as comfortable researching an interview with a cabinet minister as you are for one with a film star. You may be sent on an Outside Broadcast or filming with a correspondent.

If you want to put your skills to the best possible use, learn new ones and have fun on Britain’s best television breakfast show then we want to hear from you.   

Package Description

1x Fixed term contract / Attachment 6 months

Any offer of employment with the BBC will be conditional upon you having the right to work in the UK
