Graduate Job sector Reports
The BBC has announced it will be relocating more posts to mediacity:uk in Salford, providing good news for students looking for graduate jobs in Manchester.
With the positions previously located in London, it gives relief for people who would like to work in the BBC but would not be willing to move to London.
Caroline Thomson, chief operating officer at the BBC, said: "As part of the BBC's drive to become less London-centric and more deeply rooted in the whole of the UK, we will be moving a significant number of additional staff to the new media centre in Salford Quays. All of this will strengthen Salford's place as a true network centre."
She added that with a stronger BBC presence, there will be even greater potential for Manchester, Salford and the whole of the north of England to become a "world class centre of media innovation and technology for the 21st century".
The posts will be in the BBC future media and technology department as well as in BBC news.
Five BBC London-based departments are making the move to Salford Quays in 2011.
