Workshops / Risk assessments

From educational workshops to help you spot issues before they arise to risk assessments that keep you safe at work the BBC provides a number of services to help you stay healthy and well. 

Flexible working

We're always happy to discuss flexible working. Although you can mention it in your application, this isn't mandatory and will be discussed at offer stage.

As a BBC employee based in the UK, we always welcome flexible working arrangements, as we understand people can work better a different way, or need the flexibility to combine they work with their personal life and commitments.

Should you be successful in a role with us, we could discuss different options such as:

  • Part-time hours
  • Term-time hours
  • Staggered working hours/flexitime
  • Compressed hours
  • Annualised hours
  • Working from home
  • A job share
  • Flexible retirement
  • A career break

You will then need to discuss options with your future manager, to make sure this can work with the type of role you're going for.
