Appeal For Presenters

0

We are currently looking to recruit more Presenters.

Anyone is welcome, whether you are new to us, or already an ESTN volunteer working in another area.

The main requirement is for a clear, non-hurried reading voice. (Regional or National accents are quite acceptable, and indeed warmly welcomed; clarity of the spoken word and expression being the watchwords).

The role involves providing links and continuity on the recording.

A team of people act as joint Presenters, (each taking their turn on a weekly roster), so the frequency of involvement is somewhere around once every 4 weeks, and the activities usually take between 2 and 4 hours, depending on whether the Presenter also does the preparation work, known in TN circles as ‘Editing’. (Some of our Presenters are also Editors).

You can find more general information about ESTN, and the roles involved at : https://eastshropshiretn.co.uk/about-us/

If you would be interested in volunteering to be a Presenter, or would like any further information or a full Role Description for Presenting, Editing, or both; please contact us

Thank you !
