Here at Hillz FM we can only survive on the amazing work and dedication from our volunteers.
Hillz Radio launched in 2004, and has had a full time license since June 2009 and provides a community radio service to a population of over 100,000 people in Coventry, broadcasting on 98.6FM. It also reaches a worldwide audience at www.hillzfm.co.uk where people can listen on-line.
Hillz Radio’s aim is to provide an entertaining and informative broadcasting service for local communities. As well as offering a great and varied mix of music, the station’s mission is to provide a diverse broadcast which represents all cultures in the local community, while keeping people up to date with local information about their community.
Participation in community radio is a great way for people to learn new skills and develop confidence, and by enquiring about volunteering, you’ve taken the first step towards this.
We have a range of opportunities, so whether you can volunteer on a daily, weekly, monthly, or ad-hoc basis, your time will make a valuable and lasting difference. We recognise that our volunteers have varying time commitments and we are dedicated to working flexibly with you to enable you to volunteer.
Before you proceed with your application, please note the following:
- You must be aged 18 or over to volunteer at Hillz Radio
- The station can only offer volunteering opportunities to those who live in the following local authority areas: Coventry, Warwickshire
Due to the high demand for volunteering on Hillz we would kindly ask you to be patient whilst we wait for an opportunity to get you involved in something that you have told us you are interested in. When demand for volunteering is high we will sometimes need to prioritise applications from people who are offering something different, for instance, a radio programme that the station would like to broadcast but which it is not currently doing.
We are keenly looking for volunteers with the following skills:
- People with Journalism or Media experience
- Social Media experts
- People with marketing experience
- People with video production experience
- Distributing or displaying promotional material
