We are currently NOT welcoming new presenters, producers or taking on any volunteers due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Check back soon to see when we’re taking on new presenters.

We’re looking for people who’d like to be involved with Radio Shields NE on a voluntary basis. Whatever your area of interest, be it presenting, reporting or production & more – we’d like to hear from you! 

Previous experience is not essential, we are keen to hear from people who have a passion for the local area across our target area of South Shields and North Shields who are looking to get involved in this new exciting community project.

There are many ways to get involved, and we are looking for people of all ages and abilities to come on board and be part of the team.


If you have an idea for a programme, you will firstly go through a dedicated training programme which is 3 to 4 sessions lasting 30 minutes to 1 hour each. During this time, you will learn everything about radio from producing a show, to editing, presenting and the technical side of how to get your show on air.

From this we will help you with branding and marketing and then give you a slot on our schedule to get you live! We’ll sit in with you for your first few shows to help out if needed but then it’s over to you !!

We are YOUR life, YOUR music and YOUR radio station!

We can then look at other aspects of radio if you are interested including live events, marketing and administration.

Tell us a bit about yourself!

We are very interested in people who have experience of volunteering (much more than radio experience). Do you have any previous voluntary or community experience (NOT RADIO RELATED)?

We are always interested in people who have time to give to help with fundraising, promotion, training, etc. do you have experience of this?
