Traffic and Travel Broadcaster
You would be responsible for providing travel bulletins for our radio clients and assisting our editors in collating traffic and travel information to update our custom database. The ability to present articulately and confidently is a must, whilst a good knowledge of roads across the Wales would be an advantage. We are looking for broadcasters who can cope with the demands of creating consistently excellent bulletins for some of the most successful radio stations in the country. The ability to pronounce Welsh place names is essential, but you do not need to be a Welsh speaker.
You may be in the radio industry already and looking for a change of scenery, or perhaps a new challenge in a different environment. Alternatively, you may have broadcast experience in student, hospital or community radio, and want to take the next step into becoming a professional broadcaster.
Our employees range from university graduates to seasoned radio professionals and many combine working for us with other roles within the radio or other industries. There are very few places where you can be broadcasting to London one minute and Northampton the next, and because of the nature of our work, no two days are the same! As well as the media, our traffic data is supplied to websites, sat navs and smart phone apps.
We are based inside the Welsh Government’s Traffic Management Centre on the M4, on the outskirts of Cardiff. Due to the nature of the shift start times, own transport would be necessary to access the premises, especially for a Breakfast shift at 6am!
INRIX is an internationally successful company and provides its employees with resources that are second to none. One thing you will immediately notice is that we are a close-knit team and work in a professional, yet friendly environment.
Monday to Friday 15:30 - 22:00 (32.5 hours per week)
