To build the best UX team in the business, the BBC is doing all it can to nurture the next generation of design superstars. That means you.
This is your chance to join a team of innovative and supportive UX designers. Get involved with the insight, imagination and regular research we use to create incredible experiences for people across the world.
On this year-long programme you'll rotate across a range of products - from iPlayer to News, from Sport to CBeebies.
You'll work on real projects with senior members of UX, as well as technical and editorial teams from across the BBC. You'll gain unparalleled experience, as you get involved in user research, information architecture, content analysis, interaction design, visual design, prototyping and much more.
The BBC has got placements available in London and/or Salford. So your location could be flexible depending on what suits you.
