The last position is based here at Bloomsbury Institute, at our very own Bloomsbury Radio.

This year we’ve partnered with Bloomsbury Festival to broadcast live from Bloomsbury Radio across the festival week.

We have opportunities for presenters, interviewers and studio team and you don’t need to have any prior experience to apply. There may also be opportunity to continue volunteering with Bloomsbury Radio after the festival.

You’ll not only have the chance to work on the radio, but you’ll also receive expert training before the festival takes place.
