We’re recruiting a part-time Radio Producer at HMP Styal!

A rare opportunity has arisen to join our prison radio project at HMP Styal, a women’s prison in Cheshire.

We’re the charity that developed and runs National Prison Radio, the world’s first national radio station for people in prison.

This year we have launched a major Lottery-funded podcast channel, Life After Prison, and we’re leading the way in the global development of prison radio.

This year we picked up a Gold Award at the radio industry’s prestigious ARIAS. In recent years we’ve been crowned Independent Production Company of the Year (Audio Production Awards) and Charity of the Year (Third Sector Awards). We’ve also been nominated for a string of British Podcast Awards.

We’re looking for a part-time Radio Producer to join our team at HMP Styal. Working alongside women serving custodial sentences in Styal, you’ll be part of a small, high-performing staff team – making life-changing programmes for broadcast into prison cells across the country on National Prison Radio. 

Occasional travel to HMP Brixton, and other prisons across the estate, may be required.

Ours is an organisation unlike any other, and we’re particularly interested in hearing from candidates from under-represented backgrounds and from people who have lived experience of the criminal justice system. 

We’re looking for an experienced and technically proficient producer with a proven track record in producing and editing high-quality radio.

We’re a driven, tight-knit team working in what can be a challenging, exhilarating world, and you will be motivated by the knowledge that your work has the potential to make a real difference.
