Fun Kids has a range of media channels that appeal to children and families. We’re best known for our flagship national radio station Fun Kids, but we’ve also got a spin-off station for little listeners called Fun Kids Junior, there’s a busy website at funkidslive.com, the largest children’s podcast network, YouTube channels and a range of social media too.
We’re looking for an Account Manager to join our small, high-performing team, in an area of media that’s lots of fun. Ideally you will have at least two years media sales experience, preferably in radio (but this is not essential) – good contacts in either agencies or with clients direct in the family arena would be particularly advantageous.
If you are revenue driven, self motivated and creative in your sales approach then this could be the role for you.
Fun Kids is based in Holborn in Central London, you’ll get a shiny Macbook, be able to graze on free drinks and snacks (well, until Thursday when they normally run out) have as much tea as you can manage (particularly when Dave’s in the office) as well as receiving a competitive salary.

About Fun Kids
Fun Kids started as a London digital radio station in 2009, but since then has grown into a suite of products that reach children and families.
The radio station is now nationwide – broadcasting on ‘D2’ – the Sound Digital national multiplex. With over 300,000 kids tuning in across the UK (TGI Youth) and over 100,000 listeners in London (RAJAR) the broadcast station continues to go from strength.
Programming-wise it’s focused on 6 to 12 year olds (with some younger programming – Fun Kids Junior – when the older kids are at school). The station is a music station with a bunch of young presenters producing entertaining radio alongside factual speech features.
As well as nationwide on digital radio, listeners tune in on the website, the app, aggregators like TuneIn and Radioplayer and on smart speakers (just ask your device to Play Fun Kids!)
As an audio specialist we do pretty well in podcasts – we’re the biggest provider of kids podcasts in the UK, generating over 500,000 downloads a month. Plus, our Fun Kids Science Weekly has two British Podcast Awards nominations.
With lots of content on-air and through the podcasts, the Fun Kids website has become a well traffic’d website for children and families generating over 350,000 pageviews a month.
We also try and get out and about. The station appears regularly at events like Kidtropolis. Kids can get on our bus and be superstar DJs in our special bus studio.
We also created a live stage show which had a 26 show run at the Edinburgh Festival. Last Easter, the show was performed to a sell-out crowd of 500 at the Underbelly on Southbank.
Getting out and about also means we’ve had another product to sell to advertisers – sampling opportunities in our goodie bags!
