Pirate FM is making the news - named part of the Sunday Times Number One Best Company to Work For for the fourth year in a row.

Cornish commercial radio operator UKRD owns stations from the Duchy to Sunderland, and our staff ranked us first for leadership, the company and their teams.

A commitment to improving terms and conditions for workers has led to longer holidays for new recruits, a pension scheme and a revamped reward programme.

It comes on the day Pirate FM gets a new MD - Mark Peters. He said: "I think this is a hugely proud moment for UKRD and Pirate FM. I think it's proof of what can be achieved when an organisation recognises the value of its people really.

"We are the best company to work for. We're very proud to be broadcasting to the people of Cornwall and beyond and, if you're interested to find out how you can be part of this excellent team, we'd love to hear from you."

Staff made reference to UKRD's unique culture - where its core values of open, honest, fun, fair, professional and unconventional are put at the heart of everything that it does.

Staff are rewarded with chocolates, champagne, meals out and trips to international sporting events.

Chief Executive and Cornishman William Rogers, who was named the UK's best leader for the third year in a row, said :"It's an accolade I'm delighted to receive but it says more about the team on the ground than it does about me."
