manchester jazz festival is the city’s longest running music festival and is an established part of Manchester’s cultural heritage, staged over ten days in late May with hosting partners across the city. We connect diverse venues and landmark environments, champion northern artists performing new and original music, and commission ground-breaking new works and pioneering collaborations. mjf supports up and coming musicians, breeds new talent and launches careers with year-round artist development programmes. Through all of our work, we celebrate diversity, creativity and boundary-pushing innovation.
mjf operates with a small core team, made up of the CEO/Artistic Director, General Manager, Producer & Partnerships Manager, Talent Development Associate and three
freelance Marketing & Engagement posts. The Festival & Programmes Assistant will provide support to the mjf team, with a particular focus on programming, artist development, finance and operations, and will report to the General Manager.
