In addition we have also built up a reputation over recent years as a leading provider of professional vocational training services for the global music industry, particularly around digital marketing. We are looking for an experienced, talented, entrepreneurial and driven individual to help us evolve this side of our business.

The successful candidate should have an understanding of the commercial training and career development market within the international music industry, and also the higher education landscape, particularly in the UK and potentially other English speaking countries.

This content will include ongoing and accredited vocational development for organisations; modules for academic partners; courses and content for bands and entry level music industry employees; and short bite-sized video content for our own channels and other online platforms.
