Are you on the lookout for opportunities to make a real difference in the Harrow and Brent community? Want to meet new people or get some extra skills on your CV? If so, Radio Harrow is always on the lookout for new volunteers to join us.
What does volunteering with Radio Harrow involve?
Volunteers have the opportunity to take part in our patient visiting service at Northwick Park Hospital, help their team put together a great playlist of songs and features for our flagship shows (either Harrow Today on weekdays, the Saturday Brunch on Saturday, or the Radio Harrow Request Show on Sunday) and to broadcast out to the community from some of our local events.
Harrow Today and the Saturday Brunch focus on the song requests, stories and events from within the community (including from within Northwick Park Hospital) and is a great source of news, music and entertainment. The Radio Harrow Request Show focuses on delivering patient stories from those within the wards of Northwick Park Hospital and provides an upbeat show for listeners to enjoy.
Once you’ve gained some experience, you can start presenting your own show and be trained on Myriad, one of the leading industry playout systems as used by some national radio stations. You might even want to help us at one of our fundraising events or write an article for the annual Radio Harrow magazine!
What does Radio Harrow want in new volunteers?
All we ask in return is that you’re aged 16 or over, you can commit about two-and-a-half to three hours of your time each week, and you’ve got the determination and enthusiasm to produce great content and to make a difference in the community.
Why Radio Harrow?
Based in one of the country’s most religiously and culturally diverse areas, we’ve got volunteers from ages 17-75 and from various ethnicities and walks of life too.
Last year’s volunteer survey showed that our volunteers like “seeing other volunteers grow”, “Meeting a wide variety of engaged and friendly volunteers” and “The people, the impact we make [and] opportunities to grow and evolve” – so you’ll be bound to have a good time. But don’t let us tell you this – watch below to find out what our volunteers and presenters think:
