• Listen Live to HBSA


Like music? Like to chat? Can you spare a few hours every week?

HBSA Radio provides the hospital radio service for Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock. We’re based within the Crosshouse Hospital building and are always on the lookout for volunteers to help out by presenting programmes and helping to run the station.

We are looking for volunteers to broadcast music-based or “chat” programmes. We are keen to hear from enthusiastic people of all ages and backgrounds who feel that they have something to offer.

No Experience?

You don’t need any radio experience, we provide full training at your own pace and typically our volunteers only need to spare two or maybe three hours per week.

The station has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere – so why not try something different? If you’ve got a little spare time and are interested in voluntary work, then this could be the rewarding role for you!

Although we only accept volunteers to take up a specific time slot on our timetable and in recent times our timetable has been full, we would still encourage you to apply. We will hold your details and offer you a start when a slot becomes free and it is your turn in the queue.

Not quite 18 years old ? Then our junior membership could be just the thing for you, it’s great fun as you get to present your own show and play all your own favourite songs and it looks great on your CV, college and Uni applications. Junior membership is open to 16 and 17 year olds and we may ask for a personal reference from your school or college.

NB: HBSA cannot accept applications for Work Experience or Placements. All positions are voluntary, HBSA reserves the right to refuse any application and may ask for personal references. Hospital Broadcasting Service Ayrshire is a registered charity (SC017119).

Also, it is important to note that we do not accept volunteers to just “help out” as all our volunteers, even our committee, are broadcasters.


*** Please contact us for current vacancies, empty spots are currently on offer to applicants. Please check back here soon ***

If you are interested in getting involved and are free for any of the above time(s) each week then get in touch right away. Training is at HBSA in Crosshouse on Thursday evenings so you would need to be available at that time too. We update this list regularly but cannot guarantee availability of any timeslots.
