creative marketing and pr officer for music and sound related projects


Accidental is a record label, production company at the forefront of innovative sound and music
production in the uk. It has worked all over the world on some of the biggest stages including Olympic
opening ceremonies. It also runs The Radiophonic Institute with its close ties to the BBC and historic
innovation in sound. At its heart though it is still built upon a small independent record label releasing
music in a wide variety of styles and genres to hugely varied audiences, releasing everything from
dance music and punk to sound art installations and imaginary works. It is a small company punching
well above its weight on the global stage but is often too busy making things to tell other people about
what we’re up to.


We are looking for an early career, highly creative, motivated individual to help make exciting short
form content to tell the world about what we’re up to through whichever platform is most appropriate
for the story.


Our number one priority is that you are enthusiastic and motivated. As a small, busy company we are
less concerned about your education and more about your capacity to work hard, on your own and
deliver innovative and engaging work. It is a creative role, but also requires excellent organisation.
You will be fluent in all the principal social media platforms, with a particular emphasis on music-
focussed ones such as tik tok and youtube and have a track record of creating and sharing interesting
content. Basic knowledge of video editing tools is essential


We don’t expect you to know all of our activity or artists, or even to have heard of us, but we will want
you to be passionate about helping independent artists make their music public, curious about sound,
and show a keen willingness to take risks and innovate.


Initially this is a freelance part time role which we anticipate taking up 1.5 days a week
Day rate of £160, based on 8 hours/day


This position is primarily remote based working with travel required for the content creation as
needed.


Start date: As soon as possible


We are committed to equality of opportunity and encourage applicants from all underrepresented
groups
