Our long-running London-based music production company is looking for a new producer to join us.
The role entails two principal areas:
1. New Business.
The emphasis is on new business and we're looking for a candidate with fantastic contacts within the advertising, production and music world.
A contact book and great relationships with potential clients is essential for us.
We are looking for someone with at least 2 to 3 years experience in a similar role.
Here follows a more detailed description of the two areas above.
1. New Business.
Producers are responsible for seeking out projects from their client base. On top of our desired existing contact book, producers must be happy picking up the phone and creating new leads. Producers are required to visit clients to represent the company and show our work. They work to new business targets and are expected to use all avenues to achieve them. Working with potential leads, producers should be happy creating quotes and negotiating budgets. We need a dynamic, tenacious and entrepreneurial candidate who wants to find great projects and develop new markets.
Producers work with clients to take their music briefs and in turn, work with our composers to deliver the best results. Producers project-manage the whole creative process from taking the initial brief, to managing amendments - through to delivering the audio in correct formats and issuing licences. Producers are also responsible for booking vocalists and musicians. You will need to be super-organised and fantastically cool-headed and efficient, especially when faced with tight deadlines and difficult decisions. Our ideal producer is an arch-diplomat and stickler for detail.
We must make clear that this is not a job for a budding composer or sound designer who wants to present themselves creatively to clients.
This role is for someone who knows and loves music, sound design, advertising, film and new business opportunities.
Perhaps candidates have been working in other facets of the industry and want to switch over into a new area and expand their scope within the industry.
