Work experience

You’re awake! It must be the afternoon.

One Golden Square is home to six national radio brands, including Absolute Radio. We're looking for individuals with a love of music and a passion for radio broadcasting to experience working behind the scenes at some of the UK's biggest radio stations: Absolute Radio, Heat Radio, Kerrang!, Kiss, Magic and Planet Rock.

If you're a creative, enthusiastic, driven individual who wants to go far, you're in the right place. Your time at One Golden Square aims to give you a flavour of how radio stations work, from on-air presentation and production, through to the website, marketing and operation.

Every day is different; the agenda is set by what's happening at our family of stations at the time - it might depend who's visiting, or which events are taking place.
