Music Instigator Recruitment


Music Instigator

Bradford Producing Hub (BPH) in collaboration with Bradford Council and Music Local are looking for a Music Instigator to help drive forward the Music Industries in Bradford.

This role will support talent development and careers; build stronger connections across the sector/s; support the new Bradford Music Network and Steering Group; develop new ways of working; and ultimately create more and new opportunities for musicians and people working in the Music Industries in our District.

Who are we looking for? This is a fixed term freelance contract: 2 days per week, for 2-years. We’re ideally looking for someone who is well connected to Bradford’s varied music scenes. You might be a musician / maker, or work in other areas but have a passion for music – whatever your specialism may be, you’ll have a strong commitment to collaboration and be motivated by helping others to succeed.

What is the fee? £150 per day to include travel to/from Bradford city centre (other travel and expenses will be paid in agreement with the Project Director). This is a freelance engagement and Creative Music Instigator will be responsible for payment of their own tax and national insurance payments.

Please also send us your CV or relevant career info. You are welcome to send further information or examples of your work. (We’re not really interested in your ability as musician! So don’t send us tracks or recordings – this is more about how you work, so it might be images, reviews, links to events you’ve helped make happen, feedback from collaborators, or anything that demonstrates you and your practice.) We strongly encourage applications from people who identify from backgrounds and experiences currently underrepresented in the music sector (including, but not limited to: Women, ethnically diverse people, people with a disability or life limiting condition, working class, LGBTQ+).
