Want to volunteer?

PBS is run by a small team of staff and a large team of volunteers. All of our announcers are volunteers! There's many reasons why people choose to volunteer at PBS. Some see it as a chance to gain valuable skills, undertake work experience or do an internship. Others find it's a place to meet like-minded music-loving people. And some simply like to contribute to their favourite radio station. Volunteers keep PBS going and we’re always happy to welcome new people into the fold!

Volunteers come in every week and help out – on reception, in the music library, or in the production or membership departments. We also have volunteers who help out on special occasions such as events, live music week, or during our annual fundraiser: radio festival! Other volunteers contribute gig and album reviews to our website.

Want to volunteer? Do you have ideas about how you could contribute to PBS? Please call Mara Williams on 8415 1067 (weekdays 10am to 6pm) or email
