MassiveMusic

Music Production Assistant

As a Music Production Assistant you will be helping the production department produce and manage sonic branding and/or advertising projects, working with our internal teams and network of composers / sound designers, all the way from initial briefing to finalisation.

We don’t expect you to know of these workstreams just yet, but we want you to have an attitude that demonstrates your eagerness to learn along with a positive, forward-thinking and collaborative attitude. You bring fresh ideas to the table and always have a proactive solution to any challenge. You are also fun to have around, which is great because all work and no play isn’t our thang.

Along with these skills, the key is that you have a passion for creativity, an appreciation of the role of music and sound in the world of advertising and branding, and a strong desire for a career within this area. You do not have to be a virtuoso in playing any instrument, nor do you have to be a music theory genius – as long as you are a music lover, we’d love to hear from you.

This role's natural progression would be to develop into a Junior Music Producer.
