There's never been a more exciting time to get a job in the music industry. Not only are the creative industries booming but careers in music are getting ever more varied. If you love music you can find your place.
The music industry needs creatives of course but it also relies upon a range of other roles to keep the music flowing. There are roles available for those who love law and contracts, if you are good at managing people and processes, if your thing is design and media or if you know one end of a sound system from another. Whether you're into lighting and staging, supporting artists to find their voice, recording and mixing tunes or managing accounts in a fast-paced business then this could be for you. The music industry also needs data experts, accountants, instrument technicians, venue managers, security staff, electricians and carpenters, caterers, managers... THE LIST GOES ON!!!
