Liz worked for the community arts charity as a Station Manager/Technician for the full time community radio station, Preston FM. Having held the post for just under 7 years, since the radio project began, this role required Liz to continually programme broadcast schedules for FM and online transmission to include over 300 volunteers, community organisations and groups; was responsible for the purchasing, management and maintenance of industry standard kit; including 2 digital radio broadcast studios, a production studio and a multi-track recording studio; along with the training of volunteers in this equipment and processes. She has produced and run training courses for Volunteer Studio Managers, Volunteer Support Workers and Volunteer Pro Tools Engineers along with other smaller technical workshops at varying levels of complexity. Liz is great at the technical side of things, but is also great at working with a diverse range of people with differing learning styles and levels and will be bringing this wealth of experience and skills into her new role as a full time freelancer.
Liz will be sad to leave the amazing project, the staff team she has built up great relationships with and also miss all the amazing volunteers who made it all worthwhile; but not only is it the start of new beginnings for Preston FM in it’s new form, it’s also the perfect opportunity for Liz to focus on her broadcast, community and online media producer, trainer and consultant post for www.lizhardwick.co.uk
From the 9th April 2012, Liz will be available for audio post production; video production and post production; experimental media content production; and consultancy and training in a wide variety of medias and mediums. For more information on the courses Liz has previously delivered check out http://www.lizhardwick.co.uk/Community_Work and have a look around the site for more info about Liz and the services she can offer.
Liz wishes Preston FM the very best of luck for the future and hopes to support lots more organisations and companies in the future, in creating the media and online content they and their services users can be involved and engaged with.
