From the World Cup to the Olympics, whether it’s Premier League football, 6 Nations Rugby, International Cricket or the top Tennis tournaments BBC Sport is at the heart of the world’s major sporting events. Our Sports News, Radio Sport and Interactive teams help make sure that every day, throughout the year our audiences are served with all the stories surrounding every sport as well as providing world class coverage of the events themselves.
We are committed to equality of opportunity for everyone and welcome applications from individuals regardless of their background for BBC Sport. Due to current under-representation of candidates from black and minority ethnic groups, people that have a disability or people that chose a more vocational route into employment, we encourage applications from candidates in these groups.
The BBC is committed to redeploying employees seeking suitable alternative employment within the BBC for different reasons and they will be given priority consideration ahead of other applicants. Priority consideration means for those employees seeking redeployment their application will be considered alongside anyone else at risk of redundancy, prior to any individuals being considered who are not at risk.
