DJs

About us

Colourful has been home to the 24/7 celebration of African and African-Caribbean culture, music, people and passion for nearly 20 years.

We broadcast across DAB radio and live from our dedicated website every day.

And you'll also find us right in the middle of some of the community's biggest events.

As we move into a new phase, we’re looking for creative ways to tell bold and brave stories.

About you

You’ll be a DJ aged 25-45 who lives and breathes music and has lived experience as part of the African diaspora.

 

You should also have previous experience using vinyl and CD decks, operating a studio desk (preferred) and talking on-air and camera.

 

With your unique voice and take on your genre, you should love spinning popular and rare grooves and talking about music with guests and callers.

 

The role

We'd love to hear from you if you're obsessed with either:

 

  • jazz
  • hip hop (more MF Doom, less Lil Wayne)
  • funk
  • electronica
  • afrobeat.

 

 

What's on offer

You should be able to commit to performing a live, two-hour show once a week.

 

This will include using our social media guidelines to share messages before, during and after the show. 

 

You should also be able to take feedback and work with our team to develop your show and build engagement across channels.

 

 

Interested?

If that sounds like you, please message hello@colourful.com with:

 

  • details of your genre of interest.
  • a resume detailing your experience. If you want to write a cover statement, please keep it under 500 words.
  • links to examples of your work.
