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!
