You’re passionate about music and want to play a key role in shaping and changing the future of the music industries. You're someone who thrives in community-led environments and enjoys collaborating with and supporting young people.

You’re someone who loves building new relationships and comfortable engaging and growing creative communities. You’ll have an ear for music and a strong understanding as to what engages young people in and out of music. You’ll have an entrepreneurial spirit that will develop our NextGen Programme through a new stage of growth. Behind the scenes, you’re organised, collaborative, efficient, self-motivated and can work well in a small team that has to punch above its weight. You may have experience already working in music, working with artists' events, campaigns, or in community management. You may have worked on or with youth-led organisations or platforms engaging directly with young creatives.


The NextGen Community Producer will play an integral role at Youth Music shaping and developing our support for young adults, particularly helping them to close the gap between learning and earning in music.

You’ll join us at an exciting time as we look to scale up and enhance our community engagement efforts.

Your innovative strategies and passion for supporting young creatives will be key to driving deeper connections among members and creating a compelling offer for the community.

Day-to-day you’ll be programming national events, workshops and networking opportunities; brokering progression opportunities though Youth Music’s industry partners, and recruiting to paid freelance creative roles. The job will involve managing a variety of relationships with young people, playing a central role in developing and leading the NextGen community strategy, and supporting the development of a new brand and user journey for NextGen community members.
