The scheme is a partnership between Radio 1 & 1Xtra and Marketing & Audiences.
The BBC have decided to open the doors of Radio 1 & 1Xtra’s new HQ by offering paid placements that give young people the opportunity to build experience and get involved in what they do at the station. Four trainees will start with them on 8 week placements at the end of January and placements will then run across the year.
There is no minimum entry requirement for the scheme education or employment wise- they are just looking for creative genius and applicants must be over 18.
The scheme is aimed at people already working on media and creative projects at a local level through for example, youth projects and community groups but who are now looking for some hands on professional experience to kick start their careers in the industry.
During their time at Radio 1 / 1Xtra trainees will work across departments becoming part of their teams and will also provide them with insight and ideas by researching and producing creative briefs, working closely with M&A.

This is a great opportunity to get their audience and potential audience into the new building and working with them on all aspects of they do.
