BBC Arabic – Training Opportunity

BBCArabic is looking into the idea of identifying talented broadcasters from a pool of those who have recently begun a career in media but who may not yet have had the chance to work in a news environment, and offering them a one year training opportunity.

The potential candidates should:

– Have the ability to read and write Modern Standard Arabic.

– Have the ability to translate into modern standard Arabic (from English)

– Have a first degree, preferably but not necessarily in journalism or media and communication.

Any feedback you have on this idea would be most welcome.

If you know of anyone personally that may be interested in this, please ask them to send a CV and an A4 paper IN ARABIC explaining why they would like to have this training opportunity and what they think they would be able to offer BBC Arabic.

Alternatively if you have any suggestions of other contacts (e.g. university departments) who may be interested in such a scheme, please feel free to either forward this message or send me their names and e-mail addresses and I will send it to them.

The CV and the cover letter should be sent to my email address:

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely
Jenny Dunbar

    Hii, I’m studying international relations at university of Essex. I’m an undergraduate student and I would like to work as a Tv presenter after graduation. So I would like to ask if there is any training courses would be available for me in order to enhance my skills and be a positive thing to be added in my CV.
    Thanks in advance.
