Phonic FM seeks a freelance Business Development Manager

Posted by John Wigzell on September 6, 2018 at 15:19 0 Comments

Phonic FM is Exeter’s community radio station. Broadcasting across Exeter since 2008, it provides a locally-rooted alternative to mainstream radio, on FM and online.

Staffed and funded by around 70 volunteer members (representing a diverse mix of backgrounds, cultures and musical preferences), it aims to support the arts – in the widest sense – in and around the city. The core offering of music is augmented by programmes featuring film, theatre, art (both visual and sonic) and more besides. Phonic FM has supported countless local artists of every type and genre – many of whom have gone on to achieve national recognition.

Exeter Community Radio (ECR), the non-for-profit company behind Phonic FM, is now looking to build on the success of its first decade and ensure the station is as relevant and accessible as possible, ready for the challenges and opportunities that will arise for community broadcasters in the coming years.

ECR has secured funding for the recruitment of a freelance Business Development Manager. It is seeking a friendly, professional and pro-active individual to help plan for its future, increase its income and develop its output. The objectives for the role are:

  • Create a solid plan for future development
  • Increase the organisation’s income
  • Provide more (and better) opportunities for people to express themselves and develop their skills
  • Take Phonic FM to a wider audience

Knowledge of broadcasting is not required.

Exeter Community Radio works with young people and vulnerable adults. Satisfactory references and a DBS report will be required.

This role is offered on a freelance basis. It is funded for one year, with the post-holder to be paid monthly in arrears on receipt of an invoice for hours worked. The total fee will be £13,500, based on 17.5 hours per week (£27,000 full-time equivalent).…

To all Ning members - Exeter Cultural Partnership is changing

Posted by Belinda Dillon on August 2, 2018 at 13:49 5 Comments

Exeter Cultural Partnership is redesigning its website. In discussions with our Steering Group and a broader working group looking at functionality and accessibility, we’ve decided that the Ning platform is no longer suitable ­– as a platform, it will sit uneasily inside our new website design. We also feel that we’d be better able to support arts and culture conversations via other social media platforms.

We haven’t taken this decision lightly. There are currently 561 members on the Ning, and we value your contribution in helping to build the profile of arts and culture in Exeter. We certainly hope you’ll stay with us on the next leg of our journey – the new website will be launched in September along with our new name, ‘Exeter Culture’. In the meantime, there is a holding page – www.exeterculture.com – with the option to sign up to our new mailing list. We’re planning on sending out regular newsletters, so please do join!

As part of our research into the Ning’s functionality, it was noted that although the Blog is the most widely used aspect, the majority of the activity is the posting of events and opportunities (although there is little or no commenting or sharing, and the page views average around 20 to 30). We feel that this activity could more easily happen on other social media platforms. Part of our new remit is to encourage everyone to see that we’re not a membership organisation or a ‘closed clan’; by using Facebook (@ExeterCulture), Twitter (@ExeterCultural) and Instagram (exeterculture), we can more freely and openly communicate.

Regarding the Forum section, there are occasional posts (around two a month),…
