WANTED: new team to run Down the Rabbit Hole!

16 October, 2020

After six years at the helm, Down the Rabbit Hole founding team members Katherine and Louise are stepping back from the running of the show.

But children’s books need championing more than ever — so we’re looking for a new team to take over, joining Imogen and Jack — and taking Down the Rabbit Hole to new heights!

We're now inviting expressions of interest from individuals or groups to lead on the running of the show from January 2021.

This currently entails the following:

- Recording a half-hour radio show, broadcast once a month on Resonance 104.4FM (at present this is pre-recorded remotely but in future may be broadcast live in Resonance FM’s central London studios)

- Maintaining the podcast and website dthradio.com

- Maintaining social media accounts - Twitter and Instagram

Work typically involves administration, including liaising with publishers, author/illustrator guests and the Resonance team. Basic technical skills e.g. audio editing (or a willingness to learn!) would be an advantage.

Please note that this is a volunteer opportunity — the Down the Rabbit hole team work for free (covering small costs, such as web hosting and refreshments for guests from our own pockets). As there can be quite a lot of work involved, we recommend forming a team rather than taking this on as an individual — it's more fun that way anyhow!

If you’re interested, please send a short expression of interest (max 500 words) to us at downtherabbitholeradio@gmail.com by Monday 2 November.
You may already be involved in the children’s books world — whether as a writer, illustrator, publisher, agent, teacher, librarian, bookseller, blogger, or otherwise — or you may just have a great passion for sharing and celebrating children's literature. Either way, we'd love to hear a little about you and any new ideas you may have for the show!
