Orkney Podcasts Project - Presenter

Orkney Podcasts exist to bring informative, entertaining podcasts to people living in Orkney. They provide an opportunity for those who prefer listening to reading, to find out about what is happening locally around themes of health, social care, wellbeing and life in our communities. As a Presenter you will work closely with the Volunteer Podcast Producer and Admin Volunteer to identify possible guests to interview for recording podcasts. To create an outline of the recording session with questions and topics for discussion, and finally to record the podcast session ready for editing by the producer.

You will need:

Good interpersonal skills

Good communication and organisational skills

Good standard of work with an emphasis on accuracy


Some knowledge (or willingness to learn) of working with audio recording equipment


An ability to meet with new people and put them at ease.
