We’re currently expanding our team and looking to recruit new members.

Radio Re-imagined:
Who we are

We’re the UK’s leading independent electronic music platform, embracing delivery of content through non-traditional broadcasting channels such as smart devices, podcasting and direct streaming.

We don’t need a DAB or FM presence to reach our audience. Most of our audience don’t even own a radio.

Instead we connect with electronic music fans and creators using social and smart technologies.

We’re agile, relevant and the future of dance music radio.

All we require is just 4 hours of your time each month, split over 3-4 days in a single week.

During our 6 month programme, you’ll be paired up with an existing member of the team who will help provide skills training to get you up to speed.
