|Job Title||Volunteer Presenter - EXPIRED|
|Contract Type||Temporary / Interim|
|Job Published||24 Jun 2016|
|Contact Name||Volunteers Team|
Radio Wexham’s aims and objectives are:
Provide opportunities for all members to learn/develop radio and broadcasting skills.
Volunteering at the station is flexible and you give as much time as you can, most members volunteer one night a week for a couple of hours helping with visiting the wards/presenting/producing a show, and then as/when they can for our fundraising events.
Our philosophy at RW is you get out whatever you put in!!
Many members go around the wards, but also have the options of training up as on-air presenters, on the myriad system, outside broadcast equipment or engineering - whatever you want to do, whichever route you want to take we support all our members in their development.
All our training is of the same standard as the national radio stations and we are now the only station in the UK where members aged 16 to 25 can also have the opportunity to earn an AS Level qualification! We are also part of a national association which offers professional training, seminars and networking.
One of the most important and rewarding roles all hospital radio staff are involved in, is asking for song requests and presenting shows, imagine being in hospital, all alone, no friends or family able to visit you, surrounded by strangers. It can often be a scary situation.
Now picture a group of smiley, happy, bubbly people, of all ages, walking in and chatting to you about music and asking what songs you might like to hear – often just a five minute chat can make a patient’s week, and there is nothing more worthwhile than seeing someone smile, and knowing you helped create that smile!
No previous experience necessary.
