The Music Managers Forum is the world’s largest professional body for Music Managers with over 1200 members in the UK with global businesses. We educate, innovate and advocate on behalf of our diverse range of members. Our focus is to campaign for a fairer, more transparent music industry that operates in the interest of all music makers and their fans.
We are seeking a General Manager who will help us continue to grow our membership, manage and guide our team, engage with policy and research activities, as well as supporting MMF special projects, campaigns and events. The GM will oversee the effective delivery of a number of projects and long-standing initiatives, as well as proactively seeking out new opportunities for the organisation.
The role reports to the Chief Executive and will include constant engagement with members, industry and wider stakeholders, motivating and overseeing a small, but dynamic team to provide the MMF’s membership with the best possible service.
The MMF team is small and punches above our weight in the music industry. We are the founders of effective campaigns such as the #LetTheMusicMove, FanFair Campaign Against Secondary Ticketing and Dissecting the Digital Dollar, as well as initiatives such as our music manager development programme Accelerator, anti-racist event series MMF Unite and the Music Managers Guide to Mental Health. The successful candidate will have an awareness of the central importance of the role of the music manager in developing music makers’ careers and an understanding of the support a professional organisation can bring to enterprising individuals. They will have 5-10 years experience in working in a similar role, be good at working on a multitude of projects and calm under pressure dealing with a demanding workload. They will also demonstrate the ability to engage with membership and other stakeholders and build positive relationships.
Music industry experience is desirable though not necessary. The MMF recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds.
