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 roles can Radio Harrow volunteers take on?
Volunteers have the opportunity to 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 Request Show on Sunday) and to broadcast out to the community from some of our local events.
Please note that Radio Harrow have recently reopened live broadcasting having operated remotely during the pandemic. It is our ultimate intention to restart our patient visiting service within Northwick Park Hospital once Covid-19 cases come under greater control within the Hospital, but is currently on hold.
What broadcasting roles do we have available?
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 Request Show (normally, but will take a different format for the time being due to Covid-19) 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 make a difference.
