The Edge is New Zealand’s leading youth station, targeting a 18 – 39 year old audience. Chances
are, if you ask your students what radio station they listen to most of them will say, The Edge.
As The Edge targets a younger market, we are always looking at innovative ways to promote the
brand to the local youth market and identify individuals who would be of value to the industry now and in the future
This will be an extremely valuable exercise for students who are seeking a career in media and also provide a platform to advertise certain things happening at your school.
The primary objective is for senior school students interested in a future in broadcasting to kick start their career by becoming Edge interns.
We are searching for one or two students to represent your school in this internship. These are unpaid positions andcall for a year long commitment, with in person requirements a few times during the school term.
As ‘The Edge Brand Champions’ they will gain valuable ‘industry’ knowledge and experience, all while taking on an ambassadorial role promoting Edge competitions in your school which could be beneficial for the rest of the students.
During the one year internship they will receive hands-on experience planning and executing The Edge Interns
promotions, on-air training and will voice their own ‘what’s on at our school’ commercials. At the end of the year, they
will receive a reference which will be an excellent start to their CV and a possible ‘foot in the door’ should future
employment opportunities arise. Many of our interns have gone on to study radio or media, work in our casual
promotions team, or gain full time employment with Mediaworks.
It is very important that the right people are selected. This is why we are directly approaching school Principal
Throughout the year, there will be numerous opportunities for your school, facilitated through your Interns, to gain a significant profile on The Edge. As an influential medium (and the number one station in the market), this is essentially free advertising to tens of thousands of students and parents in Canterbury.
There will be an interview process for students to make sure the EDGE have chosen the right applicants.
Use the link below to register but ALSO email Mr Stewart the reasons why you are applying and what you would bring to this position. We may be asked to give feedback on applicants so it is always useful to know your intentions and the sorts of involvement you may already have in this area.
