Job Introduction

Are you a presenter full of great ideas?

Can you engage and entertain our audience for three hours every weekday afternoon?

Main Responsibilities

We are looking for a presenter for our Drivetime Show – running 4-7pm Monday-Friday. 

It’s a lively mix of music, features and the day’s news. 

Do you have the drive, ideas and the personality to bring it all together?

Are you the right candidate?

We’re after an experienced presenter to create a must-listen show, helping our listeners to finish off their workday with a smile.

You’ll already know all about the different communities that make up Oxfordshire - and if not you’ll have the ability to learn quickly what audiences want from us.

You’ll be full of creative ideas to help you build your local profile, reach and hours. 

On top of all that, you’ll need to be calm under pressure – essential for when the big story breaks late in the day.

Important Application Information

As part of your application please submit a showreel which demonstrates your suitability for this role.  It should be no more than four minutes long and uploaded to no later than the deadline for this role.

Please note, applications without a showreel will not be considered.
