Southern Cross Austereo has partnered with the Australian Film Television and Radio School to give one talented graduate the opportunity of a lifetime.
A new internship award will be offered to one lucky 2016 Graduate Diploma in Radio graduate, providing them with six weeks, full-time, paid employment at a regional radio station owned by SCA, immediately following their graduation.
SCA’s Head of Regional Content Mickey Maher said the award aims to offer real hands hands-on experience working within one of the biggest media companies in the country.
“We are excited to be giving an AFTRS student this chance,” he said.
“SCA is committed to recruiting and developing people who have the potential to be the best in their field and this is another example of that commitment.”
AFTRS Radio Program Leader Lisa Sweeney said the award reflects the school’s close ties with SCA over many years.
“Many AFTRS graduates are employed by Southern Cross Austereo, both in entry level jobs and in higher profile, later career roles,” she said.
“In fact, SCA is the largest commercial radio employer of AFTRS graduates and offers a rich and varied career path for radio professionals whose passion lies in the commercial FM music space.
“We are pleased to have this award available for our most talented graduates and feel it further strengthens our commitment to provide industry ready radio professionals right across the country.”
The winner of the SCA Graduation Internship Award will be announced at the school’s graduation ceremony on Friday, December 9.
