The Digital Radio Project is a CBAA initiative with Federal Government funding support through the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications, administered by the Community Broadcasting Foundation (CBF).

We are looking for a person with developed skills and experience, an understanding and commitment to the objectives of community broadcasting, familiarity with community radio station operations, and strong written communications, organisational and interpersonal skills.

The capacity for research and report writing, familiarity with broadcasting infrastructure and broadcasting legislation, and a self-motivated approach to tasks and development would be valuable to the role.
