Previous operational experience in either television or radio is desirable.

An appropriate and versatile microphone voice is a pre-requisite, as is a high degree of manual dexterity. The ability to write creative and imaginative scripts and to deliver them calmly under pressure are essential qualities. Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate an awareness of Presentation's role and their own editorial maturity.

Announcers may begin training in either radio or television according to their previous experience, but they will be expected to work in both media in due course. The job involves shift working and is based in Glasgow.

Appointments may be offered as a one year contract. including a probationary

training period.

If you would like to be considered for a role in the forefront of broadcasting in Scotland, please write for an application form (quoting ref. 24373/QR)
