ABRSM is the UK’s largest music education body, one of its largest music publishers and the world’s leading provider of music exams. In partnership with the Royal Schools of Music, we support high-quality music-making and learning around the world. As a charity, we invest £6m in music education annually, and believe that everyone should have the chance to realise their musical potential.

The Copyright department at ABRSM is an interesting and fast-paced environment that has a broad remit, supporting the whole of ABRSM. The primary focus of the department is to obtain all licences and contracts for ABRSM’s offer - which includes a wide range of books, videos, apps, syllabi, exams, seminars and courses - and making appropriate royalty distributions. We are also responsible for monitoring, protecting and licensing out all of ABRSM’s intellectual property, along with dealing with ABRSM’s business affairs.

We are currently looking for some additional support to the team for a period of around 3 months in the first instance. We are looking for someone who has music industry experience within a Copyright department, ideally including experience of third party print licensing. You will have good administrative, IT and communication skills, a positive and proactive attitude and excellent attention to detail.

This is a great opportunity to work with a small, friendly, professional team. We are currently based near Moorgate in the City.

We occasionally have opportunities arise for casual work in the Copyright team. If you are interested, please contact us as above. Applications from homeworkers may be considered.

ABRSM is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect our workforce to share this commitment.
