Radio Presenter

Calling all radio heads! Are you a talented presenter who is dedicated to producing content? Ready to boost the morale of the UK Armed Forces? If so, check out this fantastic opportunity to present for BFBS Radio…

The British Forces broadcaster is looking for a talented and multi skilled Radio Presenter to join their team and create fun, entertaining and relevant content every day for this unique audience every day. To be successful in this role you will currently be presenting a regular live show on a BBC, commercial or community station (or recently have done so) and be used to self op and self-produced approaches to programmes and content.

The ability to incorporate social media initiatives into your creative ideas will already be second nature and their experts will support you in developing techniques to identify the best stories for their audiences.

After a short familiarisation period at our HQ near Gerrards Cross in Buckinghamshire, you’ll be prepared for long term overseas postings to places like Canada, the Falkland Islands, Germany, Gibraltar and Cyprus.  So, a willingness to live in a military community and a sense of adventure are both essential. Talk to them about the opportunity for your spouse, partner and family to go with you, if that works best for your circumstances.

This is a life-changing opportunity to make exceptional radio for an extraordinary audience. So, if you are excited at the prospect of a full-on role, living and working alongside the UK Armed Forces, at home and overseas, they would love to hear from you!
