The Process

If your application is of interest, you will be invited for an interview / open day at Black Country Radio. If you are applying for a broadcast role, you will also be invited to do a voice-test during the interview, and if you are writing copy (for our website for example), we will ask you to undertake a simple written test.

One of these should preferably have known you through previous paid/voluntary work or study.
