Come and join us
We believe that everybody has a different level of ability but everyone can turn up with the same integrity, work ethic and positive attitude.
We accept and value that you have a life. We know that the radio station comes second to that.
We want you to do the job you want to do plus a job we need you too. For every hour that you can contribute for your own gain, please give us one back.
Your role is important to you – and us – but there is no place for you if you do not see yourself as part of the whole.
We do not have an email culture. Email exists for the Directors to communicate policy and confidential matters and for advertising leads. All other emails will be public via a shared studio address. We respect data privacy issues of our consumers too, according to the legislation of the day.
We are a not for profit organisation. That does not mean that individuals cannot be recompensed financially. Indeed, there are rewards. It recognises that Ofcom, the regulator, demands sustainability is key.
Naturally, we encourage and subscribe to the principles of Equal Opportunities.
We do not tolerate anti-substantial behaviour whether it be substance abuse or poor colleague relations. Importantly, we ask that you pay for and present a DBS certificate to us, should you wish to be involved.
You will understand that this is absolutely essential in today’s world. If you cannot gain one and wish to make a case for yourself, then we will happily listen.
Finally, whether you are on or off air, we must remind you that you are bound by the same Code of Conduct as every broadcaster in the UK. If you broadcast on our Rossendale Radio, you are bound by Ofcom’s rules. You play by the same parameters as all of the big names you listen too.
Rossendale Radio reserves the right to accept or decline any volunteers application even on acceptance and can terminate any volunteers position without explanation at any time.
If you are happy with all of this please send us your DBS and application form if you have not already done so.
