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 we are often on the lookout for volunteers to help out by presenting programmes and helping to run the station too.

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.

Our studios are wheelchair accessible and we currently have a number of presenters who use wheelchairs. Please be aware that we would need to be sure a wheelchair user could operate safely within the studio area, and if not, then the volunteer would need to bring a support person with them as we have no on-site assistance at all.

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!

Could It Be You ?

This opportunity will suit a bright, confident, outgoing,  chatty person who has more than a passing interest in music and radio.

This opportunity will not suit someone who is quiet, shy and retiring and does not really like speaking in public.


Not 18 years old yet and think you may be too young ? 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 favourite songs and it looks great on your CV, college and university applications. Junior membership is open to 16 and 17 year olds and we may ask for a personal reference from your school or college. Junior members enjoy access to all of the broadcasting roles but may not be considered to be trustees of the charity.

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.


Well, this is embarrassing!  After all that, we actually have NO VACANCIES right now. Please check back here regularly and watch our socials 😉

If you are interested in getting involved and are free for any of the above times 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.


Please only apply for membership if we have a vacancy and if you know that you are free to fill it – we do not operate a waiting list. Check the “Current Vacancies” list above, or ads we may have on Indeed Jobs, if we have none, then please wait until we do. If we have vacancies, then go right ahead and apply.
