The Absolute Radio Apprentice with U24 from Orange

Who says purple and orange don't go together?

An Absolute Radio Microphone

Absolute Radio and Orange have teamed up to bring you two great offerings. Orange have got U24: If you're under 24 you can get an extra 1GB of data and unlimited UK calls and texts to your friends on Orange and T-Mobile when you spend or top up £15 a month. We've got the Absolute Radio Apprentice: For the first time ever, and in association with Orange U24, we've offered a six month paid apprenticeship for one lucky winner, right here at Absolute Radio.

The winning candidate will be supporting the production, presenting and music teams, as well as helping with programming, studio, music and promotional production. This is a serious role at the heart of a national radio station – no tea-making duties here! Although if you're going in that direction we'll have milk and one sugar, please.

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is unique to the industry… you won't find a better head start to a career in radio than this. We've interviewed a few of our colleagues from around the station to find out how they got their start in radio. You can see their videos on the Staff Stories page.

The competition was tough, but we narrowed it down to one candidate. Find out who is… the Absolute Radio Apprentice!

Orange U24

U24 is new from Orange. It gives you unlimited UK calls and texts to your friends on Orange and T-Mobile, plus an extra 1GB of data – If you're under 24, you're in. Just bring drivers licence, passport or PASS card and your face to an Orange shop, or visit our U24 page to find out more.
