Recruitment and Pathway Initiatives

Lecturer in Popular Music Industry – Marketing

Career stage: Senior

We are looking to appoint an exceptional lecturer to engage and inspire our students in teaching music industry studies with a specialism in music marketing, start-up and sustainable careers for the emerging artist.

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is a forward-thinking world-class Higher Education Institution. At the leading edge of music and dance training, we provide specialist education of the highest quality, reflecting the increasingly collaborative world of artistic practice and supporting professional artists’ lifelong career development.

The BA in Music Performance and Industry is a new three-year undergraduate programme in popular music. As the post holder, you will join a team of highly-skilled, forward-thinking professionals committed to fresh approaches to learning and teaching. We emphasise creativity as students develop their artistic voice, gaining industry-relevant skills in performance and production.

The teaching delivery will be practical in small classes with some online provision, and you will also be responsible for creating digital content to support learning. This position is an excellent opportunity for a visionary educator. As a successful candidate, you will have substantial music industry experience and expertise in the evolving music business, marketing, brand development, online media campaigns and self-promotion.

In addition, you will have a strong understanding of how artists develop careers in various genres (from EDM, Hip-hop, Singer-songwriter, Grime, Rock, Punk, Folk, Ambient, Techno etc.) with recognised expertise in at least one specialism. Previous teaching experience and curriculum design in Higher Education are desirable though not exclusive, and the Faculty of Music is committed to innovation in learning and teaching. As the music industry evolves, you will have a crucial role in keeping the programme updated with the latest developments. As a member of the Faculty of Music academic team, there will be opportunities to work across the BMus and postgraduate programmes.

The BA in Music Performance and Industry seeks to address the inequality in society by positively encouraging a diverse student and staff membership. We aim to foster an inclusive community that reflects our society. Therefore, we actively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, pregnancy, and maternity.

Please note all applications submitted will be shortlisted anonymously by our recruiting panel, so please ensure that your name and personal details are not included to the supporting statement, otherwise we will not be able to consider your application.
