About:

Harbourside Artist Management is a music management company based in Bristol but with clients across the world. Harbourside has a passion for disability arts and is proactive in working with artists with disabilities. In 2022, in collaboration with Youth Music, we are launching the Disability Empowerment Programme (DEP) to help increase disabled representation in the music industry both on stage and behind the scenes.

The programme will bring on board an Intern / Manager’s Assistant to Harbourside Artist Management who will be empowered to bring on board an artist with a disability for a fully-funded project recording an EP for official release. We hope this project can be the start of an increase in the representation of disabled managers in the industry, as well as the springboard for an artist to launch a career.

Current Harbourside clients include Viktoria Modesta, Lachi and Lucy May Walker. The intern would help in campaigns and operations for existing clients alongside managing the DEP. The intern would be given full support during the enrolment process but then empowered to manage and lead on the project to recruit and work towards a release for the artist or band on the DEP. The intern would always have the full support and guidance of the lead contact.

Other duties will include the general running of the Harbourside office, assisting in scheduling and general enquiries received regarding our artists. The Intern should have a good knowledge of the music industry and be able to help in campaign planning and social media strategy. Training will be offered in all areas of the business and the intent is that the Intern will come out of the programme feeling equipped for a full-time job in music management.

Hours would ideally be 1-5pm Mon-Fri but this can be flexible depending on your other commitments and circumstances. The candidate will ideally be from Bristol or the South-West but the majority of the work can be carried out from home with regular video calling, and occasional trips to the office. Enquiries welcome from those outside of the South-West but please note this opportunity has been created to help address a lack of opportunities for young people outside London.

A music industry related qualification or direct experience of working in the music industry is desired but not essential.

Duties will include but are not limited to:

· Taking a lead on all activities around the DEP, from recruiting the artist, planning and facilitating the recording and scheduling the release and associated PR campaign

· Assistance with general emails received by the company, helping to field show and media enquiries and assisting artists and company with scheduling

· Managing company social media channels, including Instagram, Facebook and Twitter

· Working as part of a team to develop social media campaigns

· Assisting with event, artist development and general office admin
