Sarah Ebockayuk

Business Management Degree Apprentice

My name is Sarah Ebockayuk; I am 24, from the Midlands and I am currently a BBC Business Management Degree Apprentice on the Charter Manager programme. I am currently in my final placement and final leg of the scheme. My journey started a couple of years back prior to BBC when I attended Loughborough University to study International Relations and Economics, after realising university wasn’t the right path for me, I worked for a couple of years in the Marketing, Communications and Advertising Sales industry. I wanted the opportunity to use my academic knowledge and industry knowledge effectively as I felt I needed to expand my knowledge in the workplace as well as gain a qualification. With this opportunity to have my degree funded by the BBC and a salary offered, it was too good of an opportunity to miss out on! This scheme is a great opportunity to work for a global company, gain leading industry training and set yourself apart from your peers!

I have had placements in:

  • BBC Creative (Advertising): Production Team Assistant
  • BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and Asian Network: Marketing Assistant
  • BBC Studios Business Affairs Drama and Comedy: Business Affairs Assistant
  • BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and Asian Network: Production Team Assistant
