Calling all creatives, media fanatics and music junkies! We're hiring and we'd love for YOU to join our team. Our CFMU family is looking for 3 new part time staff for the 2018-2019 school year. We're looking for folks with an attention to detail, creative spark, eyes for visual and ears for audio! Our openings consist of the following:

Promotions Coordinator 

"My favourite part of working for CFMU is the friends I've made and the adventures we've been able to have together! My favourite memory was promoting our brand new merchandise by filming a dance break parody of HAIM at 6am in Westdale!" - Kayla, Promotions Coordinator 2017-2018

Our Promotions Coordinator assists our Digital Media Specialist to provide all of our eye-catching visual content! The perfect match would be someone who is skilled in Adobe Suite and comfortable shooting both film and photo. This role can vary from designing social media graphics, brainstorming awareness campaigns, working camera two in video shoots or collecting campus moments for our photo library! A link to your portfolio is encouraged.

Music Director

"Best part about the job is definitely the flexibility and creativity you can exercise, and responsibility you have over the department. There are endless learning opportunities and you have the opportunity to test your organizational and management skills. The small extra tasks you can take on (interviews, blog posts, going on the air) allow you to get creative and play around with your speaking and presentation skills. Definitely something I’ve never had the chance to do before!"

The Music Director is responsible for all the ins and outs of the music office. In this role, we're looking for someone who really loves music - of all genres! Our ideal candidate has their ear to the ground when it comes to new releases, local and independent artists. They are outgoing and comfortable on camera hosting our Top 5 video series! You should be organized, eager and ready for a fast-paced environment. Are you someone who spends their free time at shows and can help us build relationships with labels, artists, promoters and venues in the city? Apply now!  

Production Coordinator

"I loved the creativity behind making ads and each promo that my volunteer team and I make was a completely new experience!" - Jayson, Production Coordinator 2017-2018

Our Production Coordinator is the brains behind all of our on-air advertising! If you have a voice made for radio or have strong leadership with a collection of creative ideas, we want you on board. In this role, your office is a little unconventional as you'll be spending most of your time in our recording studio mixing up ads for show hosts, community based promotion and training volunteers! We're looking for someone who loves recruiting a team and keeping their group motivated to produce witty content with clear messaging.  

If you have any questions regarding any of our recent openings, please send Jamie an email at jtennant@msu.mcmaster.ca. These roles are open to students planning to return to McMaster in the fall as Full-time MSU members. You can apply here.
