Intern opportunity in London

01. Sep 2017


Internship Opportunity at Konzertdirektion Schmid UK

Based in Covent Garden, our boutique classical music management agency is seeking an ambitious and confident intern with an interest in classical music. The candidate must display good organisational/prioritisation skills, an advanced ability to communicate with clients and with different levels of staff, and have a keen eye for detail. A substantial proportion of the role is working within a busy team, however, initiative to work independently is also important.

Daily tasks range from supporting various teams and staff members; to working on your own projects. By working closely with experienced artist managers and administrators you will gain first-hand experience and a working knowledge of the classical music industry through the eyes of artist managers and the artists themselves.

We are particularly interested in applicants with a sound knowledge of classical music. You should also demonstrate a willingness to learn more about the international concert industry. The role is ideal for recent graduates, and also open to university students seeking an internship opportunity running in parallel to their studies, as such a part-time internship position will be considered.

Post available: From September to end of December (dates negotiable). We are also interested in receiving applications for later in the 2017/2018 season through the summer.

Hours: 9.30 – 17:30 Monday – Friday (negotiable).                                                                                

Please send a CV and covering letter to tabea.sitte@kdschmid.co.uk. We will endeavour to provide feedback wherever possible. However, due to a high number of applications if you have not heard from us within 3 weeks you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
