GMG invests in future talent
GMG Radio has launched a second round of its Futures Factory to help young people across the UK get their break in radio.
Group Programme Director John Simons made the announcement during the first session at the Student Radio Conference in Hertfordshire on Monday.
The first Futures Factory took place in Salford Quays at GMG Radio's Laser House headquarters and has lead to a number of positions at the group being filled by former attendees.
John said; “This is a unique opportunity for students to come along and get first-hand experience of what it is like to work at some of the country’s leading radio stations. We are investing in our industry’s future and looking to uncover tomorrow’s talent today through the Futures Factory.”
David Walker, chair of the SRA added; “Securing opportunities for our members to progress into the professional radio industry is a really important part of what the Student Radio Association does, and what is particularly pleasing about The Futures Factory is that it will give the participants a chance to experience a variety of different aspects of GMG Radio's business.
