The Big Music Project is offering a range of paid internships in the music business to young people across the UK.
Funded by The Big Lottery Fund and Global’s Make Some Noise, the project is a collaboration between Global’s Capital brand and the BPI. All opportunities are advertised on www.thebigmusicproject.co.uk and through an on-air Capital FM campaign.
They have joined up with charity UK Youth to help 14-24 year olds across the UK to develop skills and improve their prospects of working in the music industry.
The internships have thus far given young people hands-on experience in event production, sync, music management, music distribution, and artist development. All positions are paid the Living Wage of £9.15 per hour in London and £7.85 per hour across the rest of the UK.
Peter Ainsworth, chair of the Big Lottery Fund commented: “These paid internships offer a range of fantastic opportunities across the UK for young people to get hands-on experience to develop their skills and improve their long-term career prospects. The Big Music Project is just one of a number of initiatives the Big Lottery Fund is investing in to empower young people to improve their futures”.
