World Service seek UK bilingual Journalists

The BBC World Service has launched a new training scheme for aspiring bilingual journalists.

“Future Voices“, is the first scheme The World Service has run with the aim of recruiting potential bilingual journalists in the UK.

Liliane Landor, Controller of World Service Languages for the BBC, said: “We know there are millions of bilingual people in the UK and we’re looking for fresh new voices with the potential to become BBC reporters. You don’t need any qualifications – you just need to be over 18, fluent in English and another language and, most importantly, have demonstrated your passion for international news.”

Successful candidates will receive a month of work experience at The World Service, based at New Broadcasting House in London. They will be assigned a mentor and will receive training in a variety of disciplines, including radio. This placement will provide opportunities to suggest ideas and demonstrate reporting skills in two languages.
