The iconic Liverpool radio station, Melodic Distraction, are looking for two interns to join their ranks, in partnership with Liverpool Ways to Work Programme. The Waveform Transmitter‘s Ste Knight has the details.
2018 seems to be Melodic Distraction‘s year. The Liverpool radio station recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign, which saw them raising over £10,000, in the hopes of moving their station to a 24-hour schedule. A recent new website launch is the first in a series of exciting steps for the broadcaster, who regularly collaborate with both local DJs and brands, from Mark Forshaw through to Bongo’s Bingo. With such an impressive network, and a great deal of experience in their field, this pitches the team perfectly as candidates to work alongside Liverpool’s Ways to Work scheme, offering internships to two lucky individuals.
Liverpool Ways to Work programme works in unison with institutions across the city, in the hope of providing high quality internship positions to young people who are victims of long-term unemployment. There are certain criteria which must be met in order to qualify for enrolment on the Ways to Work initiative, the details of which can be found over on Melodic Distraction‘s magazine page, right here. This is a fantastic opportunity for a young adult, between the ages of 16 and 29, to escape unemployment and enter into a truly enriching environment, gaining experience as a broadcast assistant, which could lead to an incredibly exciting and long-lived career in radio. If you can, we urge you to apply.
