Want to work for a cutting-edge, multi Radio Academy Award-winning radio station – National Prison Radio?

A varied, hands-on role, you will become part of a multi Sony Award-winning production team, making important content with a focus on reaching out to our audience, as well as visiting prisons across the country to record and produce National Prison Radio Takeover Days. You’ll also have an eye across all the listener correspondence that comes in to National Prison Radio, ensuring we keep track of what our audience wants and needs.

You will have some experience of radio production – you may be a recent graduate who has studied journalism, media or radio; or perhaps you can demonstrate your commitment to radio through your extra-curricular activities.

You will not only gain the experience of working for a highly respected radio station based in a unique setting, you will also gain valuable insights into the workings of the charitable sector and its role within the criminal justice system.

You will have the confidence and drive to fit into a tight-knit team working in what can be a challenging, exhilarating environment, and you will benefit from the rewards of knowing that your work has the potential to make a real difference. You will be in the core of a small and supportive staff, and you will learn from some of the most talented producers in the business.
