job hunting


Greetings,

I’m writing to you because you may want to take part in our “Intercultural Dialogue through Community Media” initiative beginning this May.

Nearfm are currently looking to get together a vibrant team of Irish and non-EU nationals to take part in our intercultural project.

There is no cost. And no experience is necessary.

Do you have something to say?

Are you interested in interculturalism?

Would you like to work with a diverse team on a radio programme?

Then we want you!

  What is it?

 

The project is in two parts.

 

Part one is a 7 week FETAC level 4 course in Community Radio.

 

Part two will see the team work together on 13 radio programmes on the theme of intercultural dialogue.

Download the Motivation Form if you’re interested in participating in the project.  Please return it by April 23rd to Grace (details below) if you are interested in applying to take part.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

With Many Thanks,

Grace Wilentz
