BBC's media recruitment, networking event in Birmingham on 8 November

MUMBAI: UK based Broadcasting Entertainment Cinematograph and Theatre Union (BECTU) will be holding a joint event with the BBC to promote diversity in media and get people to learn more about the broadcast industry. The event titled 'Hidden Talent' will take place at The Mailbox in BBC Birmingham on 8 November.     

The event has been planned by BBC English Regions and BECTU and it aims to interest black and minority ethnic members in working for the BBC in the English Regions.

"There are many BBC production opportunities which exist outside London. Like BECTU, the BBC is committed to becoming a more diverse organisation and we really want black and minority ethnic professionals to consider a career with us," says diversity manager Iona Jones.

Hidden Talent is aimed largely at pre-production, production and post-production workers who may be experienced professionals or newly qualified new entrants. The morning session will have a range of speakers giving information about how they found jobs in the BBC English Regions and what it is like to work there.

Delegates can network with the BBC's technical and administrative staff and will also be given a presentation on 'Demystifying the BBC Recruitment Process'.

This will be followed by small groups allowing detailed discussion with BBC managers from different areas. Real job vacancies will be advertised at the event. BBC chair Michael Grade will also be present at the event.

The list of speakers include BBC North West graphic designer Afia Rashid, BBC North West operator Narinder Nerotra, BBC Midlands production editor Jas Reehal, BECTU NEC and chair of the BBC Black and Asian Winston Phillips.
