Kobalt Music Recordings – Client Admin Assistant (UK)

Kobalt Music Recordings (KMR) is looking for a detail-oriented and organised individual to assist with our royalty and accounting responsibilities within our Artist and Label Services department, incorporating the AWAL distribution business.

Based in our London office and reporting to the Senior Client Admin Manager, the Client Admin Assistant is responsible for entering financial details into the royalty system and assist in responding to client accounting and reporting queries.
