New Staff & Promotions
This week, we have Cal, Jai, Bajer & Bluey joining Media, and Southern, Bluey, Destiny, Tafina, Mystikal & Jackson joining Radio! Welcome to the team.
Tyler, Petralla & Nik have passed their Radio trials, Trop and Joseph have both passed their Media trials. Congratulations!
Unfortunately, we are saying goodbye to three of our wonderful Media Mentors which are Jet, Ruby, and Jamie. Here is what one of our Media Managers, Leah had to say about their departure:
Firstly Jet, he has been apart of the media department for the longest time now, and we honestly can't thank him enough for how much hard work and effort he has put into the editing, the writing, and the overall helping out with the way we run things in media, multiple things would not have been possible without him. We will always be thankful for how hard you work constantly, and both myself and Kacper wish you the best of luck in the future!
Ruby, even though you were quite a new addition to the media department, your hard work certainly didn't go unnoticed. You put in so much hard work and effort and really helped out the media team a lot! We'll miss you, but we hope to see you around! :)
Jamie, you've been through nearly all the roles here in UpBeat I believe... You're such a hard worker and we can't thank you enough for how much effort you've put into media, and UpBeat in general over the past few months. Your absence from the team will definitely be felt, but we hope to see you floating around the team somewhere - thank you for all the help!

Best Performing Staff Member
Each week, we choose someone to be the best performing staff member for their work in a specific department. This week, we have picked the amazing Dean for his brilliant work in Radio! Here's what he had to say:
Hi everyone! It's Dean here. So let's get into some info shall we? I have been at UpBeat since the 30th August, I have made so many new friends at UpBeat andI am looking to achieve a higher role in the future here. I like going out in my free time and play a few games and drawing, my favourite place is Disneyland and I really wanna visit there again but I can't due to the situation we're in!
I look forward to seeing more people joining the Discord and the UpBeat staff team as I love welcoming them, I absolutely love the support I get when I go live in the request line and the likes! Anyways that is everything for me to say! If you ever want to have a chat you can join the UpBeat Discord server, I hope to see you there very soon!
DJ Dean out!
Hi, I am Adam, I have a passion for Music, something old, and something new. I am always on the look out for up & coming artists and also some artists that are lesser known that may have been around for a while. I like to think that I am an approachable person and I am always happy to help others with their enquiries. - Adam xoxo
Here is what one of our Administrators, FrancescaRC, had to say:
Adam is such an amazing person. It’s like he has a spiritual connection with every other person at Upbeat. He gets along with everyone he meets, and he always wants to make them feel loved. You can probably catch him in VC any time of day because he’s a night owl—he barely sleeps! Maybe he’s doing too much work for Upbeat. Now that’s what I call dedication! He’s been doing great things for the community department, and he and Atlee are a fantastic team and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.
