MARKETING & PUBLICITY ASSISTANT

About You

You are a creative person with a devotion to electronic music, looking for your first break into the music industry.

You live and breathe electronic music and it’s a lifestyle you wish to live, not just to work in. Mixmag, DJ Mag and Resident Advisor are your go-to publications, and you pride yourself on having your finger on the pulse of the scene. You’re a keen writer and have an affinity for visual communications and social media. You live online and have or aspire to have a presence in relevant digital communities within the scene. Podcasts and Radio are always on as you endeavour to be an early adopter of the scene’s most exciting new music. You CANNOT live without a Premium Spotify / Apple Music account.

Toolroom is a label you follow and you are familiar with our roster and extensive catalogue, and working at a record label is a dream you want to come true.

Playing part of a small unit with big expectations – you’re a team player that wants to contribute to the delivery of high quality communications to the market by one of Dance Music’s biggest Indie labels.

Previous experience in similar positions or companies is not wholly necessary, but a clear demonstration of your love for all things House music, is a must.
