It is obvious the podcast industry needs to change and become more diverse. We are therefore particularly keen to hear from applicants that are underrepresented in the industry, such as those from Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic backgrounds or those with disabilities.
Whilst we are currently home-working, we will soon be back working from a central London office. We do however have flexible working policies around time and location, in the hope of being as accommodating to individual circumstances as possible.
