The BBC has banned white people from applying for a £18,000-per-year trainee job on Springwatch and The One Show - keeping the position open to ethnic minorities only.

The broadcaster is seeking a trainee production management assistant within their Science Unit based in Glasgow, but have stated that they are: "only open to black, Asian and ethnically diverse candidates."

It is the second role in recent months that the BBC has advertised with the restriction, after they previously sought a trainee researcher for their Natural History Unit from an "ethnic" background in Bristol.

The current advert states that the "successful candidate will be someone with a desire to build a career in the TV industry and a demonstrable interest in BBC Studios".

It goes on to outline that applicants must be "educated to Scottish National 5 or Highers, GCSEs or A-levels", but does not mention the need for a university degree.
