We are looking to increase the number of volunteer readers on our team that record daily talking newspapers for the blind. Our large studio is set up to enable two readers and a producer to work together as a team. Where we are short of volunteers you may be asked to read and produce in the studio on your own. Our second studio enables a reader to work on their own which means they also need to produce their own articles.We want to build up a more sociable environment which is why we encourage people to form teams of three or four where three of you are the readers and one at least is the main person producing the recordings. If you are interested in being a reader we will then conduct a telephone interview before bringing you into the studio for a trial run.
Duties would include welcoming members of the public into the building for the purpose of attending classes/ training sessions, showing people around building while training is taken place, collecting payment for classes/training sessions.
