Staff of the week!

Best performing Staff Member

Each week, we choose someone to be the best performing staff of the week, for their work in a specific department.

This week, we have selected Alicia for their amazing work as a Moderator! Here's what they had to say:

Hi! I'm Alicia and I'm one of the moderators here at UpBeat, I was a previous radio manager who sadly had to step down to commit to life commitments. but of course you couldn't get rid of me that easily. I am 18 and I love gaming, coding, streaming and vlogging! I also got a rare condition if you didn't know already.  I found UpBeat 2017 and left in the same year but of course I had to come back. Upbeat is like a second family to me and I am grateful to have met everyone here, everyone is so lovely and caring and I love you all. Please don't forget no matter if you got any disabilities or issues, you can always do what you love

Here's what her manager, Adam, had to say about her:
I have nominated Alicia as Moderator and Staff of the week because of her dedication to the team, since stepping into the role she has gone above and beyond to communicate with people within the community.

She has a passion for wanting to make new friends and wanting to make people feel welcomed into the community, on the mod side of things she has shown such inquisitiveness by asking loads of questions and is always happy to help out. 

Overall she has a heart of gold, a pleasure to work with and I am glad to have someone like Alicia working within my department!


Meet your Mentor


Hello you wonderful people! I'm Emma, the newest recruit to the Radio Mentor team here at UpBeat. I've been here on and off for the past year, most recently coming back in February of this year.

Outside UpBeat I'm either asleep, gaming, out travelling the south of England with my trusty camera (restrictions permitting) or studying in College. I think UpBeat is the most interesting thing I do, it's up to you if that's a good thing or not. I certainly don't complain about it!

Being a Radio Mentor is probably the best position I've held here, I absolutely love helping people out. My radio team is amazing, a wonderful bunch of individuals that all have an eager passion for radio like myself, really making UpBeat the brilliant community-driven place it's known for! Another part of my job is making sure new staff are properly settled in the staff team and helping them get set up to broadcast on our wonderful airwaves. We're always looking for new staff so do not hesitate to apply. I may even be the person helping you get started on your radio journey, you never know!

Here's what her manager, Samuel, had to say about her:

It was Sunday the 7th of March. The time was 21:15 and the staff team were getting excited in their chat. They realised that a new mentor was going to join the team very soon, but they didn't know who. The atmosphere was distinct as tension developed. Hold up, this isn't my English lesson! In all seriousness though, Emma is a fantastic mentor. She puts in a load of effort into the team and is always a friendly face, and she has made such an impression on us in her first 2 weeks. She is also a radio presenter loved by all, and holds all the qualities we like mentors to have! We're really proud of her so far and look forward to seeing her flourish with our other mentors!
