What will you be doing
You’ll have an obsession about LBC, working proactively towards increasing the station’s listening hours and reach at all times. You’ll be firm and clear in your communications with presenters and other producers so that the station image is protected, ensuring that all programme content and technical standards are maintained to the highest level. You’ll be able to operate calmly under pressure. You’ll understand that, as a commercial radio station, you will need to operate in a way that benefits both our listeners and our advertisers. You’ll generate new ideas for programme content with confidence and flair. You’ll provide creative and engaging material for promos and awards when required. You’ll ensure that you and your presenters are always up to date with OFCOM regulation, case history and media law, intervening as and when you think there may be an issue but also know when to ask for help when you’re not sure. You’ll know LBC and you’ll know exactly what our target audience likes, their taste in news stories, and their lifestyle choices – and you’ll be able to use that knowledge to make great audience-appropriate radio. As a key member of the programming team, you’ll need to inspire confidence and have a thorough knowledge of all aspects of production. You will be able to make informed, reasoned decisions when called upon to do so.
What we expect of you
You’ll have excellent communication and coaching skills in order to assist in managing and developing on-air talent when required. Creatively, you will need to be able to contribute S&P ideas and then be fully able to implement and communicate this activity to the programming team. You’ll need to have the ability to operate production and audio editing software and will also know your way around RCS and Burli. You’ll be a strong team player and be comfortable working with very well-known presenters as well as producers and all other members of LBC. You’ll know and respond positively to the needs and expectations of others to achieve the right outcome. You’ll be confident when working towards your own personal objectives as well as helping others in achieving business goals, regularly setting and stretching new standards and goals.
