We operate a DAB radio station in London/Manchester called Fix Radio and run one of the largest trade focused social media pages on Facebook called Tradesmen Banter.

  • Examples of this might include articles on stock shortages, new products, tax changes or new schemes.
  • We are open to discussing other areas of content which might be relevant to our audience.
  • These articles should be written in clear English at an accessible level, clarity and accuracy are the most important factors.
  • We’re looking for high quality work at a fast pace with the expectation of writing between 3-5 stories a day.
