The BBC is to hold another event to highlight career opportunities at the corporation for people with disabilities.

BBC Digital and Engineering is running a People with Disabilities in Tech event at MediaCityUK in Salford on December 17th.

The free event is described as a "networking, development and recruitment event" to help the Beeb attract more disabled talent.

The evening will provide an introduction to BBC Digital and BBC Engineering including a visit to the media demo lab Blue Room and quick-fire presentations about the work of different teams.

The BBC says an estimated 16% of working age adults are disabled and it wants to "ensure that our workforce more closely reflects the diversity of our audiences".
