Producer

Music for Youth (MFY) is looking for an enthusiastic Producer to join its busy Programmes Team at an exciting time for the organisation in the lead up to its 50th anniversary year in 2020. This role is an excellent opportunity for someone with a passion for arts advocacy and music education, and a strong events-based background.

Music for Youth is an established and ambitious national youth music charity that works to provide young people across the UK with access to inspirational performance opportunities and experiences, reaching over 60,000 young musicians annually, in partnership with major arts venues and a network of UK-wide music education providers.

This role will have joint responsibility for the delivery of an extensive UK-wide Regional Festival Series and annual programme of concerts and events – including the 5-day MFY National Festival in Birmingham, and three spectacular MFY Prom concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. Alongside this, the role will have particular responsibility for producing special events which appeal to young artists who make music independently rather than through school or more formal channels. The successful candidate will have a keen interest in producing high quality performance events for young musicians, a strong interest in and enthusiasm for a wide range of music, and ideally a good knowledge of the music education landscape and the current arts scene.
