Radio Wave puts job seekers on the air

An advertising campaign has launched on Radio Wave this week featuring listeners looking for jobs.

The UTV Media station is giving unemployed people the chance to go on air and set out their skills and experience in the hope that employers will offer them a job.

The community interest company behind the idea, called Social Enterprise Solutions, has accessed lottery funding to fund the initiative and a selection of local people who are out of work are getting the opportunity to go on air with their CV highlights.

Potential employers can then find out more about the candidates on the station’s website and offer them a job.

Station Director of Radio Wave, Paula Davies, told RadioToday: “Radio Wave love to be involved with cutting edge local initiatives like this, as they really benefit the community as well as making brilliant radio. The innovative way the scheme will play out on air means that business leaders are sure to be listening out for their next protégé, and it’ll be great to follow up and find out how the applicants have got on.”

Director of Social Enterprise Solutions, Alistair Clarke, said: “Helping Blackpool is everyone’s responsibility and we all want the best for the people in the area. I was out of work when I came out of university and ironically it was Radio Wave that gave me my first job reading the news, so it’s come full circle.”
