Association of British Orchestras

Arts Management Intern

London Mozart Players £22,559 pro rata (£5,205 actual for 3 months) Closing date 17 September 2021
London Mozart Players, the UK’s longest running professional chamber orchestra is looking for an Arts Management Intern to work within the organisation. This is a full-time office-based role for three months. The successful candidate will be valued as a member of a close-knit team, and will be well supported to develop transferrable skills for enhanced employability.

The candidate will be expected to work from LMP’s office at St John the Evangelist Church, Upper Norwood, and normal working hours are Monday-Friday, 10am to 6pm. There may also be the potential to work from LMP’s office at Fairfield Halls in Croydon. The candidate may, on occasion, be required to work weekends where there are concerts and events that the team need assistance with. In this instance, the candidate may take another day off in lieu.

The successful applicant should have a good knowledge of the Croydon area and its thriving multi-cultural identity. They will bring energy and enthusiasm to the role. A career in the arts or arts management should be of interest and some knowledge of western Classical music is desirable but not essential. Of most importance are the qualities of the individual and the contribution they can make to an organisation dedicated to performing high level music that resonates with the Croydon community. Most importantly they should be diligent, with good attention to detail, and happy to apply themselves in several different areas. Knowledge of basic computer software such as MS office is essential.

The working week will be split between different duties, with mentorship from LMP’s Head of Outreach and Strategic Planning, and the Orchestral Manager. The successful applicant will have the opportunity for hands-on experiences across a wide range of arts management, equipping them with the necessary skills to go on to entry level roles within other arts organisations.
