Do you want to play your part in shaping the future of BBC Scotland?

Are you…

  • Buzzing with ideas about how BBC Scotland can mean more to young people?
  • Curious about shaping the future of BBC Scotland TV, radio, websites and social media?
  • Eager to change how young people are seen by society and in the media?

If you can answer yes to any of the above, are aged between 14 and 25, and live in Scotland, fill in the form!

You do not have to be someone who regularly watches, reads or listens to BBC Scotland content, and no previous volunteering or media experience is necessary.

What will you be doing?

Over 18 months you will be working with other young people, and BBC staff, to challenge the perception of young people both within our organisation and across wider society; and to help shape new and exciting ideas for BBC television, radio, social media and websites.

This will involve group work as well as some work to complete in your own time, visits to our centres across Scotland and also possible residential weekends. Over the 18 months you will be expected to attend between six and eight core meetings, plus various other events.

What are we looking for?

You don’t need any formal qualifications, just a curiosity for important issues for young people, Scotland and the media. You should be able to work within a group, and have the flexibility, commitment and willingness to travel across Scotland throughout 2018-2019.

You must be aged between 14-25 on the 1st January 2018.
If you are under the age of 18 you must have the permission of a parent or guardian before applying.
