Deadline for applications: 5pm Wednesday 1st December

Music Patron is an ambitious new online platform that will connect composers directly with patrons. The Composer Liaison Manager is a new role for Music Patron within Sound and Music. This is an exciting and evolving opportunity and we’re looking for candidates who are keen to join us on this start-up journey as we take Music Patron from concept to reality.

The successful candidate will care about improving the funding situation for composers; want to bring out the best in composers and help them realise their full potential; be thrilled about working with a diverse range of composers from a wide range of genres; have strong digital skills and an interest in new digital developments. The main focus of this role will be to work closely with composers to explore, measure and evaluate what great composer-patron interaction looks like. With that in mind, we are looking for candidates who are curious and entrepreneurial; who have great interpersonal skills, excellent project management skills and are data-driven.

The role is 3 days a week and we are happy to consider flexible working patterns. The role can be fulfilled remotely or at Sound and Music’s office (Oxford House, in Bethnal Green, London). Ideally the successful candidate would come to London approx. once a month for an in-person meeting with the Music Patron team, but we can be flexible as needed. You will work directly with and report to Sonia Stevenson, Head of Music Patron. You will also work closely with the rest of the Sound and Music team and a small number of external contractors.

Please submit your application before 5pm on Wednesday 1st December.

Interviews will take place on zoom on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th December.
