BBC LAUNCHES NEW JOBS WEBSITE…IN TEESSIDE

The BBC launched its new jobs website for Salford MediaCityUK yesterday at its Connect and Create Conference at Teesside University to an audience of "academics and students"…

You might have thought that the least they could have done was launch the site in Salford – hope this isn't a sign of things to come…

Full story here…


Yesterday, BBC Director General, Mark Thompson, launched a new website where people can register their interest in jobs as part of the BBC's move to the North.

"Future producers of Match of the Day, editors on BBC Radio 5 Live or even Blue Peter presenters could be in this room" he said. Except that the room was somewhere in the middle of Teesside University in the North East.

Perhaps he could have added… `And the future canteen workers, car park attendants and security staff are further down the A1, sat in Salford not able to access our ace media jobs website 'cos two thirds of them don't have the internet, so they'll have to go to the Job Centre and find the crap jobs there…'

Meanwhile, the BBC Press Release, which carried the great jobs news nationwide, is still pushing the myth that "as anchor tenant of MediaCityUK in Salford BBC North will help to create over 15,000 jobs"…

Will they please stop this – no-one has said that MediaCityUK will create "over 15,000 jobs". All that's going to happen is that if every single inch of MediaCityUK (of which the BBC is only a portion) is filled (Look! There's a flying elephant!) there will be "15,000 job opportunities" which includes companies re-locating and bringing their own staff etc.

As it stands there's no-one at MediaCityUK, bar the BBC, the University of Salford and a shop, plus all the NWDA-backed stuff that's using loads of public money to fill the gaping holes and expensive leases in Peel Media's private enterprise so it doesn't look like a disaster when it opens next year…

For those with the internet the BBC jobs website is at www.bbc.co.uk/jobs/north

What skills are those then, I've been told by many that can write (published), take photos (have been published), edit video and have lots of qualifications, work in marketing(writing). But I've never been invited for an interview. I live in Salford by the way.

How many people from Salford applied for jobs at the BBC? There are still jobs being advertised online, just as there have been for the last year. I live in Salford, and I know at least 5 colleagues who also live in Salford. The jobs are there if people want to apply for them (and they have the right skills of course).

Could anybody from Salford who got a job at the BBC please let us know . I am of the opinion that NOBODY from Salford found employment at the BBC , apart from a few cleaners . I very much doubt the BBC employs Salfordians , despite all the hype .

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK.

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".
