The Voice is a voluntary group and we are often on the lookout for new people to join our team.
From presenters, programme assistants and voice overs to technical staff, fund raisers and promotional staff, there are lots of opportunities. We’re building a team of enthusiasts from all over North Devon who’ll happily offer time in a variety of roles.
There are many volunteering opportunities available at The Voice - if you are interested in volunteering with us please complete our volunteer registration form and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
We aim to provide a truly local radio service for the communities of North Devon, offering music and entertainment with details of local events, organisations and up to date information such as local news and activities within North Devon.
We also want to work with local charities and fund raising organisations in North Devon, to help them raise their profile, and to promote their activities within the communities of North Devon.
There is more to radio than presenting a show, although we are always on the lookout for new presenters, either with some experience or with a desire to train and learn.
We also need lots of help working behind the scenes at The Voice - maintaining our website, production support, news reporting, fundraising, promotional activities and coordinating various other activities we are involved with.
Volunteering at The Voice could not only give you a sense of satisfaction and new experiences but also new skills and knowledge to launch into a career of your choosing.
Presenting a show
Although radio is more than just playing music, and often the need for volunteers behind the scenes is greater than for those behind the microphone, we're always on the lookout for people interested in presenting shows. If presenting a show to your community is something which interests you, or perhaps you have some specific programme ideas, get in touch and we can provide presenter training and mentoring if you are interested.
We need programme researchers and production support for some of our daytime shows, and to work across the station in a variety of roles.
Radio programmes need content preparing for broadcast. From competition features or information on various subjects for presenters to read out, to arranging and researching interviews. You could even end up on the streets of North Devon with a microphone asking people their opinions!
One person can’t do it all. If you have an interest in getting involved in the 'back office' operations of radio then this role might be one for you, you can choose small jobs or go for a larger one. Its fun, you get to meet and work with the station staff and it's rewarding to hear your work going out on air
If you're interested in local news, news reading/reporting and interviewing people in your community, then why not get involved with The Voice.
We're currently looking for news readers and reporters to help with our local news bulletins each day. Getting involved with the news team offers great opportunities.
Listings & Events
We're looking for a team of volunteers who can help co-ordinate information about what's going on in the many communities across North Devon, which we can use across various shows.
If you're in tune with what's going on in North Devon and your community and interested in this area, get in touch!
We sometimes have programmes which need help with post-production and editing, and we would like to produce podcasts using highlights from some of our main shows, such as on air interviews and features.
If sound editing and programme production is something you're interested in then there will be various areas for you to get involved with.
We're currently looking for contributors who are interested in reporting on local/community sports. If you're interested in any aspect of local sport please get in touch.
As a voluntary group and registered not-for-profit company, we are always looking at different ways to raise income through various fund raising activities. Funds raised not only go to cover the costs of running the radio station, but will also enable us to develop greater opportunities for The Voice to become more involved within the community.
If you have any knowledge or expertise in organising, running or coordinating fund raising events and activities, or would like the challenge of developing these skills then please get in touch.
We would also like to hear from anyone who has experience in the grants sector, from researching to application writing.
We need bright bubbly people to form a promotions team at The Voice.
Help out your local station by giving out leaflets in supermarkets, standing in busy town centres giving out car stickers or walking around the streets of North Devon popping leaflets in doors.
You must be a bubbly happy person, outgoing and game for a laugh. Promotions can be fun, can involve you dressing in costume and even getting up to madcap antics. Who knows what the next phase of our awareness campaign may involve!!
The big push for the station in the near future will be making sure the people of North Devon know they have their own radio station. We need people like you who will act as community ambassadors. Promoting The Voice whenever and wherever possible and acting as our eyes and ears within your community and letting us know of news and events within your locality.
You may also fancy a bit of exercise and from time to time help deliver leaflets door to door, helping to spread the word about The Voice.
You can deliver in your own area, anything from one street to a whole town or even more. You'll help your favourite station and get some fresh air at the same time!
