Come Join The Voice Family
Do you want to get into the exciting world of radio broadcasting?
The Voice is a commercial radio station but relies heavily on local volunteers to help keep the cogs rolling in the studio, at events and in the office. So, if you're a budding presenter, a keen marketeer, event organiser or festival enthusiast we'd love to hear from your.
We want to provide a truly local radio service for the communities of North Devon, offering music and entertainment with details of local events, organisations and up to date information such as local news and activities within North Devon.
We also want to work with local charities and fund raising organisations in North Devon, to help them raise their profile, and to promote their activities within the communities of North Devon.
There is more to radio than presenting a show, although we're always on the lookout for new presenters, either with some experience or with a desire to train and learn.
We also need lots of help working behind the scenes at The Voice - maintaining our website, production support, news reporting, promotional activities and coordinating various other activities that we're involved with.
Volunteering at The Voice could not only give you a sense of satisfaction and new experiences but also new skills and knowledge to launch into a career of your choosing. We have professionals on board that can teach you a variety of skills that could really help you stand out from the crowd.
Presenting a show
Although radio is more than just playing music, and often the need for volunteers behind the scenes is greater than for those behind the microphone, we're always on the lookout for people interested in presenting shows. If presenting a show to your community is something which interests you, or perhaps you have some specific programme ideas, get in touch and we can provide presenter training and mentoring if you are interested.
We need programme researchers and production support for some of our daytime shows, and to work across the station in a variety of roles.
Radio programmes need content preparing for broadcast. From competition features or information on various subjects for presenters to read out, to arranging and researching interviews. You could even end up on the streets of North Devon with a microphone asking people their opinions.
One person can’t do it all. If you have an interest in getting involved in the 'back office' operations of radio then this role might be one for you, you can choose small jobs or go for a larger one. Its fun, you get to meet and work with the station staff and it's rewarding to hear your work going out on air
If you're interested in local news, news reading/reporting and interviewing people in your community, then why not get involved with The Voice.
We're currently looking for news readers, weather forecast readers and reporters to help with our local news bulletins each day. Getting involved with the news team offers great opportunities.
Listings & Events
We're looking for a team of volunteers who can help co-ordinate information about what's going on in the many communities across North Devon, which we can use across various shows.
If you're in tune with what's going on in North Devon and your community and interested in this area, get in touch.
We sometimes have programmes which need help with post-production and editing, and we would like to produce podcasts using highlights from some of our main shows, such as on air interviews and features.
If sound editing and programme production is something you're interested in then there will be various areas for you to get involved with.
We're currently looking for contributors who are interested in reporting on local/community sports. If you're interested in any aspect of local sport please get in touch.
Event and Street Teams
We need bright bubbly people to form a promotions team at The Voice.
Help out your local station by giving out leaflets in supermarkets, standing in busy town centres giving out car stickers or walking around the streets of North Devon popping leaflets in doors.
You must be a bubbly happy person, outgoing and game for a laugh. Promotions can be fun, can involve you dressing in costume and even getting up to madcap antics. Who knows what the next phase of our awareness campaign may involve!!
