AWAL – Marketing Assistant (UK)

AWAL is looking for two Marketing Assistants, based in the London office.

The Marketing Assistants, will be providing assistance and general support to AWAL’s UK & International Marketing teams as well as to the General Manager. You will report to the General Manager, but project leads in the UK and International marketing teams will be tasking and providing direction on a day to day basis.

This is an ideal role for someone who is looking for an entry level role in the industry and has some relevant practical experience, such as an internship or work experience at a record company or with an administrative marketing background, but most importantly – a true passion for music and supporting independent artists! In return you can expect a role which will give you the chance to learn various aspects of the marketing in the music industry.
