Role purpose:

To produce the audience-facing output of the Radio Academy’s Women In Radio and Audio project, taking place from 24 Feb to 31 March 2021.


Women in Radio and Audio (WIRA) is the Radio Academy’s focus on championing women in our industry, taking place from 24 Feb to 31 March 2021. The project will be manifested in three key outputs:

  • Launch webinar on 24 Feb – bringing together key female talent from across the industry for a panel with Q&A for Radio Academy members
  • Lunchtime Conversations on five Wednesdays in March – marking international women’s month with five lunchtime Zoom conversations broadcast to members
  • WIRA Inspirations audio – every day in March, publishing a new audio snippet from women in radio and audio about the leaders that have inspired them

The WIRA project has a steering group that has begun approaching contributors already.

Responsibilities and outputs:

  • Produce the editorial content of the WIRA project, with a particular focus on the live webinar and conversations. This will include booking guests, prepping contributors, producing hosts, and producing the live interaction.
  • Produce audio edits summarising each event, for inclusion in podcast output
  • Produce audio clips of key moments from each event for sharing on social media
  • Liaise with press/PR colleagues to ensure press have access to key content from the events
  • Liaise with the Academy’s platform producer, who will manage the technical and video elements of the live broadcast and the Academy’s website.

Skills and Experience:

  • This is a freelance role, and you will need to use your own computer and all necessary software.
  • Experience of producing the editorial content of live speech broadcasts (e.g. radio, television, or online content), and a proven ability to get the best out of a live presenter and contributors
  • Experience of audio editing and a proven ability to identify key highlights from a live broadcast for inclusion in well-edited highlights packages
  • Experience of writing high quality social media posts that drive engagement
  • Interest and understanding of championing female practitioners in UK radio and audio, and the wider context of supporting and promoting women

How to apply:

Please send a CV of max. two sides A4, with a cover letter of max. one side A4 to Sam Bailey at, by the closing date.
