Once you have submitted the volunteer application form, it will be assessed and, should there be any suitable volunteer opportunities, an appointment made for a short interview.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer presenter, you will also be required to do a short music quiz and an audition recording. Your application and audition tape will be considered by the Volunteer Resources working group who will refer you to training in broadcasting.
