UX Design Trainee Scheme
To build the best UX team in the business, we are doing all we can to nurture the next generation of design superstars. That means you.
From cultivating young minds with CBeebies to the cut and thrust of BBC News, you’ll get to train your designer’s eye on a range of experiences for an array of audiences. You can learn about both yourself and your craft, as you start your way on your dazzling design career.
This is your chance to join our team of innovative, supportive UX designers and get involved with the insight, imagination and regular research we use to create delightful experiences for people across the world.
- On this year long programme you will rotate across a range of products – from iPlayer to News, from Sport to CBeebies.
- You will work on real projects with senior members of UX, as well as technical and editorial teams from across the BBC. Along the way you will gain unparalleled experience, as you muck in with user research, information architecture, content analysis, interaction design, visual design, prototyping and much more.
- You’ve got a passion for design and an outstanding portfolio you can share with us.
- You have graduated, or about to graduate, with a great degree in design or a related field.
- You are dying to get your teeth into some knotty design challenges and solve them with your amazing design and communication skills.
- Your interest might be wireframes, user flows and personas. Or layout, colour and typography. And maybe you’ve even got something special up your sleeve, like a love of building prototypes, illustration or motion graphic design. Whatever you’re great at, we want to hear about it.
- You know how to use Sketch and the Adobe Creative Suite and you are happy to pick up whatever new package best suits the task at hand.
- You will always be considering the user and you will be almost indecently curious about their needs. You can explain the reasoning behind your design decisions to people from a variety of backgrounds. You are able to balance what the user needs against what we can realistically achieve.
- Enthusiastic about what they do, and a delight to work with;
- Motivated and full of ideas;
- Geeky about design;
- Geeky about technology.
