Tel: 01223 312400 – emma.dowsett@hazardchase.co.uk

Location – London Office

Hazard Chase Ltd, incorporated in 1990, is a growing international classical music artist management company with offices in Cambridge and London. With just under 30 members of staff across both offices, all with a passion for classical music, we work as a close team in a supportive and friendly environment.

 

Job description

Hazard Chase is seeking a bright, organised and confident individual responsible for carrying out servicing for instrumentalists and conductors.

The position involves overseeing the preparation period before an engagement to ensure everything runs smoothly. This entails liaising with concert promoters and local agents throughout the world to organise the booking of travel and accommodation, investigating and applying for visas/other documentation on behalf of the artist when needed, requesting and processing contracts, updating biographical and marketing materials, co-ordinating press interviews either directly or through a PR agency, and liaising with publishers regarding sheet music. Assistant Artist Managers are also required to produce detailed schedules/itineraries for artists on a regular basis, ensuring all relevant information is included, such as rehearsal times, dress code, travel information, and contact details. The role also includes assisting the Finance Department, checking invoicing lists and artist statements.

The role involves use of our diary management system, Overture. This requires accurate data entry and amendments, updating company contacts as required, and checking through email correspondence and correctly transferring all required information, including financial data.

We offer many opportunities to attend concerts in the UK and sometimes abroad, therefore some evening and weekend work will be required. Staff members are expected to share general office administration as required.

  • Candidates need to be able to work independently as well as part of a team, and need to be prepared to take on responsibility and manage their own workload through the use of good time management when receiving requests from numerous sources. This includes being able to look far ahead and work on engagements which may not be taking place for some time, as well as those in the near future.
  • The ability to think of other people and their needs, and being able to put yourself in the artist’s situation and predict what will be important to them and therefore prepare for it.
  • Patience, empathy, flexibility, and understanding are necessary when working with a wide variety of people, and a good sense of humour!

 

Desirable

  • A background or degree in classical music is desirable but not essential.
  • Experience in classical music management would be an advantage, as well as experience in the office environment.
  • Knowledge/fluency in foreign languages would also be extremely desirable as we work with promoters/venues worldwide.
