NE1fm 102.5 is operated entirely by volunteers. From the regular on-air team to everybody who helps out around the studio and the office, everyone dedicates their time for free and is passionate about creating radio for the people of Newcastle and Gateshead.
There’s always a need for more people to join the team, though, to contribute to everything from presenting and organising events, to interviewing and producing web content, to undergoing simple tasks such as sifting through CDs and answering the phone!
If you’d like to join the team, get in touch via the form at the bottom of this page. Alternatively, you can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or can call us between 10AM and midday on weekdays on (0191) 240 1025.
We welcome new faces all year round, and former members of the project have gone on to work in commercial radio, travel the world, work for major record labels, partake in full-time study, and more.
Whatever your level of experience and level of interest in radio and the community, we’ll be happy to take you on-board, and train you in using our technical equipment where necessary, giving you the opportunity to take part in the areas of the project that interest you.
There are no barriers of access at NE1fm. Our volunteers range in age from school-going teenagers to elderly residents. We have volunteers of all ethnic backgrounds, and we’re fully accessible for people with both physical and mental disabilities.
Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult when involved with the station. This can be any relative or legal guardian over the age of 18. When involved with the project, all under-18s are also covered at all times by a CRB checked volunteer.
We welcome all enquiries about volunteering with us, and we’re always looking for new faces to join the team. You can do so by completing the form below, but if you’d prefer to e-mail us, direct your enquiry to email@example.com.
