Volunteer Opportunities

Radio Plus is supported by around 50 volunteers, why not become one of them?

Whatever your skills or experience, we are always looking for people who are passionate about music and the community. We have a range of opportunities for you to get involved in to help develop new skills and experience, increase your portfolio, and work with like-minded people to help spread the message of hope to Coventry and the surrounding areas.

 

Unfortunately at this time we are unable to have volunteers under 18.

Office

Not all the magic happens on the airwaves. By volunteering in the office you’ll gain a new insight into how everything is planned and comes together the deliver shows and events the the community love.

You’ll be given the chance to maintain our databases and filing systems, with the aim of helping everything run smoothly. Support the team by keeping up-to-date records of volunteer agreements, regularly checking the studio bookings, and updating our policy documents.

You would be helping to raise awareness of Radio Plus and the different shows we broadcast. You’ll be assisting in selling sponsorship and advertisement packages, helping to promote our Friends of Radio Plus donation campaign, and maintain good relationships with our core sponsors.

Working alongside our General Manager you will assist in submitting grant applications for both core finances and project work that offers training and work opportunities. A lot of our work would not be possible without these applications so it is a very vital role. You will also have the opportunity to create and run fundraisers that will help to promote our image and vision to the community.

With new volunteers and shows starting all the time our website is always in need of updating. Using WordPress you will help to develop our website with current information, pictures and blog posts. There is opportunity to let your creative side show by designing new logos and graphics that can be used online and with social media. And if blog writing is your thing you can help to run our weekly online blogs and our monthly newsletter.

You will work with our managing team to help provide our volunteers support with technical and admin issues. You will also help with creating and developing volunteer-led policies, creating roles, recruitment, safeguarding, and gaining effective volunteer participation for events and fundraisers.

Technical

We always need new presenters to create new diverse yet topical shows that reach out to our target audience of 18-40 year olds. We can give you all the training you will need to plan and run your own show, as well operate the desks. And working with the production and journalist teams you will create all your own content and source interviewees that are relevant to your topic.

Not all our presenters are able to run their shows without support so you’ll be vital in running the show from behind-the-scenes. You will have the opportunity to help with our station sound and create trailers, indents and adverts for our shows and sponsors using our editing software.

New music is constantly being issued to us for us to assess before it gets released on air. Using our music policy you can help with uploading new music to our system and keeping a record of all our current tracks. You will also help to maintain the good relationships with producers that we have built up. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone that would like to work in music production.

Working with the Presenting and Production teams you will record and create features that can be used in our schedule, using press releases and local news as a start point. There is also future development for creating and presenting local news bulletins that will be used in our live shows.

You will help with the running and management of our social media sites. Creating posts, photos and video content to promote our shows and station to our online audience. There is also opportunity to create weekly blog posts for our website and monthly online newsletters for our sponsors and Friends of Radio Plus.
