Job Introduction

In BBC Arabic, we aim to deliver the most distinctive, trustworthy and challenging journalism in Arabic in the World. We want to speak to our audiences in new and engaging ways and most importantly, we want to be in touch with what’s on people’s minds.

The BBC recognises the many challenges facing Arab speaking talents with disability who want to break into the world of media. This scheme combines training, support, and mentoring.

You will also get the opportunity to join the BBC Arabic pool of freelance reporters upon the successful completion of the 6 month programme.

The package is outlined in the FAQs.
  • After this period in London, you will return to your home country and you will receive support from experienced BBC senior journalists and will also be mentored by someone from within BBC Arabic News or Programmes.  
  • Through this training you will learn how to create great content and programmes for TV, Radio, Digital, Online and social media.   You will then have the opportunity to write, record, create and reach out to our audience from your own community and country. 
  • You will also get the opportunity to join a pool of freelance Stringers who have joined the BBC on this programme. * Please refer to the FAQ section for more details.  

As part of your application, we would like you to pitch a story idea around disability of a short documentary or long feature to be one of the stories that will form a special season celebrating disability in the Arab world at the end of the six month programme.
