Podcast Host/Written Content Creator (Voluntary)

About Us

Australian Incupod is a podcast dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship across Australia. We invite guest interviewees from early stage startups to explore their learnings from starting a business venture and provide valuable insights to our listeners. As a newly founded podcast station, we are looking for individuals that are passionate about sharing the stories of others and committed to growing this young station.

We are currently a team of three based in a small office in West Melbourne. As a young team we don’t require lengthy resumes or cosmetic formalities but value commitment, hard-work and an ability to be flexible.

Key responsibilities but are not limited to:

Hosting interviews with our podcast guests

  • Co-host fortnightly interviews with podcast guests

  • Contribute to preparation of interviews including research and drafting questions

  • Contribute ideas for increasing and improving our podcast content

  • Become familiar with studio recording equipment and basics of sound production

 

Producing written content for our podcast audience

  • Produce fortnightly summary articles of our podcast episodes

  • Contribute to the development of our website blog content

 

Who we are looking for?

We are looking for a self-motivated student in their penultimate year (or earlier) of university. You will have an interest in growing businesses and the Australian startup environment. You are curious to listen, understand and share the stories of entrepreneurs and possess strong written and verbal communication skills. We do not require past experience in podcasting or journalism but some demonstrated interest in writing and sharing the stories of others.

You will largely work from home but co-host our podcast recording fortnightly. Due to the lack of public transport access to our office in West Melbourne, we prefer individuals that possess a valid driver’s license and access to a motor vehicle. We expect a weekly commitment of 5-10 hours for this role.

 

What you get?

All positions at the Australian Incupod are voluntary. We do not offer any form of remuneration. You will gain invaluable experience in growing a newly founded podcast station and obtain unique networks with promising entrepreneurs. With good work and commitment we are more than willing to support your personal and professional endeavours, and provide you with references/letters of recommendation.

 

How to apply?

To apply, send a brief cover letter (no more than 500 words) and your professional resume to australianincupod@gmail.com. Feel free to send through any questions! If you are deemed a suitable candidate we will get back to you promptly for an interview.
