Material – Product Manager (UK)

Material is focused on building outstanding artists and music brands, mainly in the electronic space. To aid in the expansion of our growing roster of artists and brands we are seeking an exceptional Product Manager to manage the day-to-day record label activity as well as new products and releases.

We require three year’s minimum record label experience and a proven understanding of the running of record labels, that should include everything from metadata to marketing. The candidate must be very organised, relish a challenge and excel within project management and working to deadlines. Having a deep understanding of the digital and social landscape, including analysis of data and metrics to inform strategic decisions, is imperative. Strong relationships within the industry are a real advantage, as are contacts within DSPs and retail. We are seeking a motivated individual who can see wider opportunities, future trends and new ideas, to help grow an evolving music business.

You will work alongside the wider music team to deliver signings and campaigns from conception to execution and finally evaluation. This is a varied and artist focused role and will require an individual with well-rounded negotiation and excellent communication skills. No day will be the same and you will often be liaising with external agencies and key stakeholders to achieve your objectives.  You will have the opportunity to make a real creative contribution in everything we do.

We are looking very much for a team player, but also someone who can work individually and drive projects from the front, ensuring all our partners fall into line within the project deadlines.  An eye for detail and numbers is vital. You must have experience of manufacturing as we continue to invest and grow our physical product offering, including merchandise. This will also link to our growing direct to consumer sales and you will be responsible for growing and managing this area, mainly via our websites.

The right candidate will be able to build our brands and have a deep understanding of each label’s audience. We function mainly in the electronic / dance space – our brands include Back to Mine, Future Disco, Stress and Needwant; so having a knowledge, passion and understanding of this genre would be a real advantage.

At Material, our team brings energy and dedication to everything we do and we support our company values – creativity, partnerships, learning and innovation. We are based in Elephant and Castle at Ministry of Sound offices, though working remotely in the short term and are likely to continue to work from home two or three days a week for 2021. We have a flexible approach to working from both home and office and take employee development very seriously, with a genuine focus on learning and development.

Salary £24-32k, dependent on experience.
