Working in audience outreach has made me feel more connected to this area, enriched my journalism, and it helped me get my next jobMark Sedgwick, Broadcast Journalist
Working here means you’ll have lots of opportunities to meet audiences in the UK and around the world.


Outreach opportunities are offered in many departments across the organisation, including in and around our largest staff bases in London and Salford. We encourage our staff to volunteer on projects which benefit disadvantaged groups, as well as audiences we have identified as hardest to reach.

Activities include mentoring young people as they develop news skills with BBC News School Report; sharing skills to benefit small charities and community organisations; and challenge activities working with target audiences to generate fresh ideas.


We have a long history of working with charities and we broadcast appeals on behalf of many different charities. For BBC Children in Need – one of our three corporate charities – and Comic Relief, we encourage our staff to get involved where possible. That could be by creating a fundraising activity or by volunteering to support beneficiaries of the charity.
