Southern Cross Austereo has proudly partnered with Charles Sturt University to build the future talent base for regional commercial radio. SCA will identify young talent in local communities and commit to endorse and mentor them as regional radio ‘potentials’ while Charles Sturt University will admit them into the Commercial Radio Australia accredited Bachelor of Communication (Radio) degree program.
The initiative provides the opportunity for regional stations to foster and mentor a potential local young radio talent. It is designed to increase the number of young professionals who train as multi-skilled commercial radio practitioners and continue their careers in their regional ‘community of origin’.
Who are we looking for?
Young School Leavers looking for a career in radio. You may have done some work experience at your local station previously or have made enquiries about how to get into the business. Working in radio is not just about sitting in a studio there are a number of other creative and rewarding career options. We are also looking for candidates who are interested in the business side of radio such as sales, production and promotions.
Successful applicants who take up the offer of a place at CSU will be required to do so at their own expense.
The next intake will open in August 2017.
