In 2006, Bickmore made her start in television on the variety show Rove Live, presenting the “Carrie @ the News Desk” segment for each episode.Often the news stories related to actual events, but ended in a twist with the punchline. A running joke throughout the segment was Bickmore’s quirky introductions in which she added a quip, often playing off social trends, music and popular culture, for example: “Good evening. I’m Carrie Bickmore and don’t you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?” In 2007, Bickmore returned to the show with a more important role.

 

Since 2009, Bickmore has been a presenter on The Project, which airs weeknights on Network Ten and has further expanded her profile as a television presenter.On 2 May 2010, Bickmore won the 2010 Logie Award for Best New Female Talent for her work on Rove and The Project.In December 2010, Bickmore was criticised by The Drum’s editor, Jonathan Green,and representatives of the Australian coffee industry,for promoting McDonald’s in a report for The Oprah Winfrey Show, which McDonald’s confirmed was paid advertising.

In 2010, Bickmore was the official host and ambassador for the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival held in Melbourne.In April 2012, Bickmore was named as the official Cadbury Easter Ambassador, and helped launch Cadbury’s Easter campaign at an event in Melbourne to media and key stakeholders, and promoted charity donations for Foodbank Australia.

 

 

In November 2012, it was announced Bickmore would become a UNICEF Ambassador for Project Eliminate, raising “awareness of neonatal and maternal tetanus”.In November 2014, Bickmore announced that she had become the ongoing face of the global French beauty brand Garnier in Australia and subsequently featured in several beauty advertising campaigns for Garnier Nutrisse hair colour and Garnier BB cream.

In 2017 Bickmore was inducted onto the Victorian Honour Roll of Women in recognition of her work as a “charitable and inspirational role model for women and girls”.She was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in the 2019 Queen’s Birthday Honours for service to the broadcast media, and to brain cancer awareness.
