Vacancy: Record Label Manager
27th August 2020

We’re looking for someone with drive, enthusiasm and a passion for/knowledge of new music to set up and manage Brighter Sound’s brand new independent record label…

We’re looking for someone with drive, enthusiasm and a passion for/knowledge of new music to set up and manage Brighter Sound’s brand new independent record label.

Aimed at showcasing the music created on our artist development programme (and beyond), the label will shine a light on the incredible new music coming out of the North of England. 

In a time of change and uncertainty, this role will explore new ways of working in the production and distribution of new music, with the opportunity to test ideas and approaches that put artists at the heart of decision making. 

This is an excellent opportunity for someone in their early-mid career to develop their skills and experience in a supported environment, and to establish and shape the future of this exciting new venture. 

Who we’re looking for

Women and gender minorities are hugely underrepresented within the music industry, particularly in leadership roles. This role is part of Brighter Sound’s new programme of work to address the gender gap, and the regional divide, within the music industry. 

For these reasons, we are particularly interested in hearing from applicants who identify as women/non-binary and are based in, or who come from, the North of England.
