A little bit about our team:
We’re a close-knit team of 10 music-lovers, highly supportive of each other and keen to impress our artists. The essence of our team, within Warner Records, is partnering with a wide range of media companies to influence and secure placements on film content, for our huge roster of music. We work across the entire Warner Records catalogue, from superstars through to breaking-artists. We also run a series of offshoot initiatives to help us grow our business. Such as W songs - a development publisher for brand-new talent and an in-house film supervision arm. As film content includes anything from the latest blockbuster to random YouTube videos, we have our work cut-out, to understand who, what, when, where and why the next exciting content will come from.
Why this could be your next big break:
Never has this area of our business been so important. Many of the artists we work with are keen to have their music synced to picture and nearly all care about this outlet for their creative work. We work hard to provide as many opportunities as possible, however as this area becomes more congested we need to become smarter in our approach. A big part of this role is at the forefront of our creative work, implementing exciting new ways to celebrate our music. There will be some general team admin to chip in on along the way, some diary management and support duties, however we’re in this for the long haul and we want our new team member to join us. We pledge to help our new joiner grow in the business, as we grow as a team.
