We hire general volunteer positions all year round – there is no deadline for applications!

 


What happens once I apply?

For DJ’s Applying for their own show: 

Once your completed application is received, your show proposal is sent to our Programming Committee for review. If they think the proposal is on air ready, it will be approved for a live to air or pre-recorded show. If it isn’t deemed ready to air, that does not mean the show idea is done, our Programming Committee will compile comments and suggestions on how to make the proposal complimentary to our programming schedule. The applicant will then re-submit the outline and this process continues until the show is deemed ready to go ahead with. While this process can prove time consuming, it is crucial in ensuring you’re thoroughly prepared for your first show. Throughout your application, you will be brought in for a meeting with our Station Manager, Brit Kovacs, who will walk you orient you with Radio Laurier, the DJ position and the expectations for content and WLUSP policies. Once the outline is approved and the orientation session is completed, the applicant is hired and training begins for production, generation of content, and interview skills.

 

For Everyone else:

Once you’ve submitted your application, it is reviewed by the Station Manager who will then distribute to the manager corresponding with your desired position. You will then be contacted by the position liaison, who will set up a formal meeting to discuss the position and the structure of Radio Laurier and WLUSP. They will further orient you with the specifics of our volunteer requirements, schedule a training session and provide you with any forms necessary for both the position and overall WLUSP administrative requirements. If following the meeting you believe you’re better suited volunteering within a different sect of Radio Laurier, they will provide you with the resources and contact information.
