Work for us

We are a small, friendly and enthusiastic team based in Kings Place, Kings Cross. Staff mix regular home working with being in the office and at events. Our concerts offer a regular social aspect to staff, and tickets are a perk of the job.

As an organisation that exists to shape, reflect and respond to the society in which we live, we want our team to be representative of the communities where we work, encompassing a wide range of different backgrounds and experiences. Though some of our staff are musically trained or have backgrounds in the performing arts, this is by no means necessary for many of the roles in the organisation. We value and appreciate new ideas and perspectives that may help bring the exciting sound world of contemporary classical music to a wider audience. 

As a registered charity, we put 100% of our income back into supporting and creating new music.

As my first job in the arts, I was given so many opportunities to develop new skills and build confidence, all while helping to make some extraordinary musical projects happen. The team is so friendly and the passion for what we do is infectious. Sam Delaney, Former Development Manager

Equality and Diversity

We are committed to evolving the organisation to better represent the society in which we exist. We encourage applications from those who are currently under-represented in our workforce and also more widely in the classical music industry, including D/deaf or disabled, and applicants who experience barriers due to ethnicity, gender identity and/or socio-economic background. Please click here to read our full Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity statement
