You can only place an ad on there if your looking for paid staff or you are a Hospital / Community Radio Station looking for voluntary staff. Internet only stations are not allowed to post for voluntary, this has something to with the minimum wage acts in the UK.

This is from the Media UK Website

"Unpaid jobs, sometimes called "work experience", are normally illegal. Every worker, with some exceptions, is entitled to be paid at least the National Minimum Wage. As at January 2008, the current level of the National Minimum Wage was 5.52 an hour, or 220.80 for a forty-hour week.

Accordingly Media UK no longer accepts advertising for unpaid jobs."

To put my point across.

I have been in broadcasting for some years now and take every care to ensure that every point/advice is accurate to the best of my ability.

The user "jkemr" had posted advising that MediaUK (of which I have no affiliation to) are able to display adverts for internet stations looking for staff.

I advised that thiis was not the case due to UK Employment Laws and posted a link to MediaUK's article on this.

I did this for one reason only and that was to advise users on this forum of MediaUK's conditions.

jkemr seems to think that I own /run or have an association with Media UK. This is not the case. I would just like to clarify that.

Thank you

I think that was clear anyway reading this thread through but best you put your side across. Sometimes stating facts to help people can be taken the wrong way and it make you think twice about stating true facts and helping people, I have had it in the past so I certainly think twice before helping. It is a shame the whole thing got blown out of proportion in my opinion.

MediaUK only links to Internet radio stations which they can verify as having the correct licensing in place.
