BFBS Radio is looking for a talented and multi skilled presenter.
If you’re excited about putting audiences front and centre of everything you do and making a positive difference to their morale, this is a game-changer of a career opportunity.
Every day, we want you to create fun, entertaining and relevant content (within our 70% music, 30% speech format), for the British armed services, their families and the wider connected community.
- Resourceful, innovative, flexible and reliable, with bags of personality and enthusiasm both on and off air.
- Currently presenting a regular, live, music-led show (or will recently have done so).
- Self opp’ing and producing.
- Not ‘phased’ by the idea of researching, recording and editing interviews and speech content - we can help with training.
- Happy learning to voice-track programmes.
- A team player, full of ideas; developing your own shows and contributing to others.
- Social-savvy – but also keen to develop your techniques, with support from our experts.
- Excited about the prospect of living and working alongside the UK Armed Forces, at home and overseas – from Germany to Gibraltar, Canada to Cyprus, Buckinghamshire to Brunei.
We can offer you:
- Familiarisation time at BFBS HQ (we can help you with somewhere to stay).
- Full support in developing your talent in creative, non-commercial, ideas-led environments.
- A generous leave scheme.
- A 6% employer contribution to a fully portable pension plan.
- Subsidised accommodation whenever you’re working overseas.
- A competitive salary and other benefits we’re happy to chat more about.
For the right candidate, this is a life-changing opportunity to make exceptional radio for an extraordinary audience. A willingness to live in a military community and a sense of adventure are both essential. Talk to us about the opportunity for your spouse, partner and family to go with you.
