Volunteer Opportunities

MainFM is a community radio station staffed almost entirely by volunteers – in fact around 100 presenters, committee members and station volunteers collaborate to keep MainFM the voice of our local community.

  • Website maintenance
  • Promotion and fundraising
  • Outside Broadcast crew
  • IT support and maintenance
