Volunteer with Raidió na Life

Since the station’s foundation as a community (of interest) radio station serving the Irish-speaking population of Dublin and surrounding counties, volunteering has been and remains a fundamental element of Raidió na Life’s broadcasting ethos.

All our presenters work on a voluntary basis, along with a large number of volunteer researchers, assistants, producers, technicians etc. Our volunteers are our backbone. Without them, the station would not exist.

Why volunteer with Raidió na Life?

  • Broadcasting experience. Through volunteering with Raidió na Life you are gaining excellent broadcasting experience. Many famous faces began their broadcasting careers in Raidió na Life, including renowned news reader Sharon Ní Bheoláin. Read more on our history page.
  • The chance to present a radio show. Not everyone gets the opportunity to broadcast all over Dublin City and County, not to mention the whole world. Through volunteering with Raidió na Life you will be given the opportunity to do just that. Put simply, the chance to have your own radio show!
  • Personal development and satisfaction. You learn a lot, not only about broadcasting, but about yourself and others, through volunteering in Raidió na Life. Volunteering also gives people a great sense of satisfaction, especially in a place that’s as cool and groovy as Raidió na Life!

PLEASE NOTE: Irish is the working language of Raidió na Life both on and off the air. While we may from time to time consider proposals for programmes which would be presented in a foreign language, the vast majority of programmes are presented solely in Irish and a relatively strong level of fluency in the language is a requirement for volunteering with the station.
