Flexible Working

We want to make sure that we find the right people to work in our teams, and we know that the traditional 9-5, five days a week doesn’t suit everyone. So, we would love to hear from you if you feel you’re a great fit for this role and would like to work flexibly. If you are the right person for this role, we’ll find the right working approach for you. 

 

Job Introduction

It’s clear to see that The Greatest Hits Network in Scotland is full of ambition and is very much at the start of an exciting journey. In the last year, we’ve signed up top Broadcasters like Ewen & Cat at Breakfast, Micky Gavin in the Afternoons and Fred MacAulay at the weekend. With an ever-expanding remit and a strive to be an even bigger force in the radio market in Scotland, our current Breakfast Producer has moved into the newly created operations role on the network. Showing our ambition for growth and the progression you can see at a company like Bauer Media.

It now means we’re looking for the right person to look after the award-winning Ewen & Cat at Breakfast. This role could see you at the centre of it all ‘making radio’ with one of the most exciting breakfast shows in the country. You will be making a difference to the output day in and day out, working alongside our multi-award-winning team. You will be mentored and managed by the production team behind the former ‘UK Best Breakfast Show of the Year’ (and many other awards) as well as former producer of the Radio 1 Breakfast Show. We’re serious about our breakfast shows and we have major ambition to grow and win even more awards, but more importantly have fun on the way…..you WILL have a good laugh working with this team.

In this role, every day is different, and variety is key. You will make sure everything runs smoothly in a fast-paced live studio environment, working with key talent to produce our high-quality shows. You will also work on projects alongside our Hits Radio Scotland and Greatest Hits Radio colleagues, helping produce and mix shows which are broadcast across Scotland and the wider Greatest Hits Radio UK Network.
