Programme Manager and Presenter at Bradford Asian Radio
07/07/2017 – 07/04/2018
Being the Programme Manager, my role consisted of updating our social media accounts (producing banners, posters etc), managing the presenters, preparing the timetable – if they were unable to arrive for their show I would have to arrange cover. I arranged the staff meetings, the shows, events & would update everyone regarding new rules or upcoming events. I was always available when presenters contacted me and had a positive friendly attitude. I had the responsibility of training new presenters as well as presenting regular Drive-time shows which consisted of having a bubbly, chatty personality, playing fast upbeat tracks, taking requests, traffic and travel, the weather & news headlines of the day. I also received the Best News Reporter Award at the first anniversary of the radio – where my work was appreciated by the Director.
Radio Presenter and News Reporter at Sunrise Radio
25/10/2015 – 01/06/2017
Sunrise Radio started off as my University placement, I was trained on how to produce news bulletins, events managing, and office duties. After completing a month of placement I then presented daily shows – covering all types; such as the Breakfast Show, Remix Show, Drive-time Show and Day-Time Shows. I always used my initiative when it came to entertaining. On Wednesdays I had a segment where I would play “Guess The Song”. I would reverse 30 seconds of a popular Bollywood song and listeners would call in giving their feedback and answers. Apart from presenting regular shows I also worked in the office – dealing with emails, phone calls, recording and preparing news stories for our website as well as our radio bulletins on a daily basis. I produced weather packages, carried out interviews for our more serious packages – regarding Eating Disorders, Bowel Cancer, the 2017 Westminster Attack and International Women’s Day.

I worked with the Craven College Press & Marketing department as work experience – here I learnt how to manage events, how to talk to people who were interesting in sending their children to Craven. Working in the office I produced a Competitor Analysis of other colleges comparing what they offered and how to improve Craven College.
Assistant Teacher at Springwood Primary School
21/07/2010 – 23/07/2010
Doing work experience at a Primary School gave me the opportunity to work with kids and understand the responsibility of a teacher. I helped reception children with their work, preparing tables and equipment as well as clearing. I always greeted the parents in a kind professional manner – always having a smile on my face. Being patient was a key thing I learnt working as an assistant teacher.
