    I have also worked places that have a strong preference for engaging contractors over employees. One place contractors out numbered employees. This was a company who are dominant in their field and one of the biggest local employers. So how is that different from the BBC?

    Or is it because they are all jezza loving, Virtue signalling, snowflakes, the mps are giving them an easy ride?

    Does this mean if I apply for premie roles as well as contract I can claim I was 'forced 'by the agency to take a contract and therefore they are liable?

    What a load of balls.
    How many large broadcasters are there in the UK let alone the world?

    Many people work for the BBC on tulip pay/rates so they can go elsewhere with the name on their CV and get much more money.

    In fact some other British broadcasters don't take people if they haven't worked for a big name, and you are less likely to be able to get work in other English speaking countries as well.

    This one of the reasons the BBC has got and is getting loads of flak for not having a diverse enough work force in important roles.

    I suggest you talk to more people who work in the media specifically TV.
