Join the team
Want to join the team? We’d love to have you! All posts are unpaid volunteer roles. Nobody is paid to help out at DCR and any money received goes to one thing and one thing only…improving the station.
Dunoon Community Radio is run by the community for the community so without volunteers, we couldn’t exist. All we ask is that you can commit some of your time and passion to the station as we need people who will remain in roles for at least a few months (but preferably for the foreseeable future).
A lot of people want to present a show…and that’s great, but we’re currently really in need of people to help behind the scenes.
We’re currently specifically looking for:
Volunteer Coordinator – you see this very thing that you’re reading? This was written by a volunteer (Andy the web guy to be precise) and whilst he doesn’t mind helping out when needed he’s got a tonne of stuff on his plate, hence why we need someone to come in and organise our volunteers. We’re looking for somebody who can get people excited about volunteering at the station, find the right people for the right jobs and be the go-between person between the different departments making sure everyone is up-to-date with what the other volunteers are up to so that everyone is moving in the right direction. You’ll work directly with the station manager, marketing and web teams and be the main point of contact for all staff so you can work out how or who is best to deal with the issues at hand. You’ll be responsible for finding out which departments need more volunteers, write recruitment adverts and speak to all potential volunteers. We never turn anyone down who wants to help so your job would be to put them in the right position.
Events Team – this would include an Events Manager, Coordinators and Assistants. We would like to expand our community reach by attending more events both in Cowal and beyond. We have the presenters but we need a team in place to make these events happen. If you have the skills, time and passion to help us with this then please get in touch. This may be suitable for retired people as well as students or young people wanting to get experience of event management. However, it should be noted that we want this team to be pretty independent so once the roles are filled and you’ve been given some insights in how the station works you’re free to go out and do your own thing. Build your team and go crazy!
We have a number of roles available and if you are interested please contact us so we can discuss further with you.
