Three young people will have the opportunity to undergo training in multiple journalism and radio skills thanks to a fantastic new fully paid apprenticeship scheme offered by talkSPORT.
If you are aged 18 or over this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get a foot on the ladder to join one of the most competitive, yet exciting, of industries - and earn £22,000 too!
Recruitment is now open until 12 October 2020, with the successful applicants starting in December 2020. They will undergo training in multiple journalism and radio skills at PA training and complete a rotation in three different departments across the talkSPORT network.
At the end of the 18-month apprenticeship they will have a NCTJ qualification and the right skills for a career in sports broadcasting. TalkSPORT also aims to offer full employment to the three apprentices at the end of the programme.

Throw in their flagship programmes shows such as GameDay Exclusive, the talkSPORT Breakfast, Drivetime with Adrian Durham & Darren Gough and they truly have a radio station to shout about.
We are Wireless. They create award-winning national and local radio and podcasts which have become destinations for millions of listeners across the UK, Ireland and beyond.

Since Chris Evans returned to his spiritual home at Virgin Radio UK a year ago, the whole schedule has seen record audiences, and they’ve launched three new Virgin channels: Anthems, Chilled and Groove. With The Times Radio that has now launched and talkRADIO going from strength to strength, Wireless is the place to be.
Your role: You will spend time with our audio, social media team and live shows; you’ll learn everything we can teach you about how to create content, tell and share stories, attract, grow and capture an audience. You will spend four days a week with us doing on the job training and a day a week learning all there is to learn about journalism and radio broadcast with our partner PA training. At the end of the programme you’ll graduate with a qualification in journalism and be well on your way to your chosen career in radio.
