Working for the Musicians' Union

London Regional Organiser

The Musicians' Union represents some 30,000 musicians working in all sectors of the music business across the UK.

As well as negotiating on behalf of our members with major employers in the industry, we offer a range of support services for professional and student musicians of all ages and backgrounds.

Key to our operations are our regional offices, including London, based in Clapham Road, London, where we have a vacancy for a Regional Organiser.

As the Organiser, you will play a key, high profile role in managing our London regional team, as well as representing our members’ interests on a wide range of employment issues. You will ensure that your team delivers its challenging remit of recruiting, organising, communicating and delivering services to our members across London. You will also work closely with the London Regional Committee in devising new initiatives, overseeing regional budgets and liaising with other music industry organisations.

You will play a leading role in negotiating and managing collective bargaining agreements, and carry out visits to London’s theatres, orchestras and opera houses, building relationships with managers and encouraging MU membership amongst players.

You will have knowledge and experience of the provision of membership services in a trade union or membership services organisation, combined with an excellent track record in managing small teams to deliver outcomes. You will be fully committed to delivering and improving the Union’s services to its members, while your excellent customer service, negotiation and personal communications skills will be used to the full. Knowledge of the music industry at national and regional level is desirable.

The position attracts a salary of £59,000, together with a car (a full driving licence is an essential requirement), along with a contribution towards a personal pension scheme. Although working a basic 37½ hour week, the demands of the job are such that you will need to be available for work outside normal office hours, for which time off in lieu is available. The annual leave entitlement is 30 days, excluding public holidays.

Please send your CV via email to Helen Cale on Closing date for applications is 1 October 2018.
