    Interviewed through board of four people, all newsroom people. Have done a few of these. Worth having a how to deal with a difficult person answer up your sleeve. Also had to do a practical journalism test - some story ideas. Also had prepared a couple of story ideas in advance of the interview which I was asked - and am asked every time I do one of these.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at BBC in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    This was for a Senior Management position. BBC interviews, or ' boards' as they are called are notoriously tough. Always panel interviews where they are designed to trip you up. A lot of the vacancies they have they already know who they want for the job but have to go through the process of interviewing others. So it can be a waste of time but its always worth going to them for the experience. BBC even have an in house service on how to board well.
