This is one of those rare times of year where a multitude of jobs and work experience opportunities pop up at the same radio station. Last month it was Magic FM, and this month we’re focusing our attention over to Kiss, who look like they’re doing a small hiring-spree. Most of these jobs are entry-level or graduate-level and therefore very much suited to our members, but I’ve popped in a couple of jobs that might appeal to those of you with a bit more experience behind your name too!
