DreamTeam is a London-based boutique artist and label services company, established in 2019 in London by Jane Third and Vincent Clery-Melin. We work for independent artists and music companies to help them grow their businesses through a combination of audience development, business strategy and hands-on global marketing.
Our client roster includes artists such as Jungle, The Hives, Steve Aoki, Dizzee Rascal and music companies such as Platoon, Mom+Pop Music, YEAR0001 and more. We’re looking for an experienced and dynamic self-starter to join our team of four, to work very closely with our artist and manager clients.
You are most likely already working in the music industry in an artist marketing, audience development, or adjacent role at either a record label, artist management company, distributor or social media / marketing agency.
You ideally have at least 4 years hands-on experience working with a wide range of artists in one or more of these areas. You have a great understanding of digital platforms such as social media, TikTok, YouTube and community platforms.
You have experience and understanding of the various sides of the music industry between artist management, the rights side of the business, the touring side of the business, and a solid grasp of artist marketing. You’re also always keen to keep up to date with the latest music industry and tech developments.
This is a role for a self-starter in a start-up environment ; you need to be versatile, adaptable, hands-on, eager to learn, and able to think on your feet. You also need to be highly organised and methodical, and your interpersonal skills must be excellent, as you will be working with different stakeholders such as artists, artist managers, distributors and label services companies. Skills such as graphic design, copywriting and video/asset editing a welcome bonus.
What will the Senior Associate at DreamTeam do?
As a Senior Associate at DreamTeam you will be the primary point of contact for a number of designated DreamTeam artist and label clients, be accountable for the delivery of DreamTeam’s services to such clients, and manage the relationship with such clients day to day, reporting to the two DreamTeam co-founders.
The services whose delivery you would be accountable for typically include the inception and execution of global marketing strategies for artist campaigns, as well as advising clients on digital marketing and audience development best practices.
Services can also include advising clients on DTC and merch strategies, tour marketing strategies, hiring of 3rd party promotion and marketing teams as well as digital / social media companies, as well as building and managing campaign budgets. You would be in charge of delivering these services through a combination of your own work, the work of the other project managers at DreamTeam, and external partners within the clients teams (such as distributor / label / label services staff, 3rd party promo companies etc.). You will be encouraged to share your experience and knowledge with the rest of the team to benefit the business.
Your role will also include responsibility for growing DreamTeam’s business alongside the co-founders by identifying and securing new clients for the company, as well as pitching new clients and supporting the co-founders and the rest of the team in closing new deals. You will have significant input in decisions of the company as to which types of services the company will be offering to clients, the pricing of these services, and the types of clients the company wishes to acquire.
