  • Have at least 2 years’ experience in audio production (at any level) or be working in the screen and/or digital industry.
  • Be creative and brilliant, passionate about radio, music and everything that appeals to a young South Asian audience.
  • Be able to work flexibly. Asian Network is a 24/7 radio station. The days and hours could vary and include weekends or evening shifts. However we will take personal circumstance into consideration when assigning the placements and always give as much notice as possible.
  • Be 18 or over and from the West Midlands.

YOU DON’T NEED TO:

  • Want to be the next Harpz Kaur, Ankur Desi or AJD. This is an 'off air' scheme, for people interested in careers in off air digital production roles. It is NOT a scheme for people interested in presenting or being DJs.
