FAQs here:


  • Be creative and brilliant, passionate about radio, music and everything that appeals to a young audience.
  • Know about current music and you’ll be listening to Radio 1 & 1Xtra
  • Be into new technology and social media and will get how this is impacting on us and our audience.
  • Be 18 or over and available to get to London to work on the dates stated. (The placements are based in our HQ on the top floor of New Broadcasting House, London).
  • Be from any background, and any part of the UK. You don’t need to be a loud mouth! You could be quietly confident in your abilities.


  • Be qualified! NB. You DON’T NEED any qualifications or radio experience. Instead, show us that you have a big imagination and a genuine enthusiasm for exploring and building a career in the media.
  • Want to be the next Greg James or Sarah Jane Crawford. This is an ‘off air’ scheme, for people interested in careers in off air production roles. It is NOT a scheme for people interested in presenting.

Good luck!
