Jobs at Devonstream

Devonstream Sessions Producer

Devonstream Sessions will be a series of live performances, recorded for broadcast in a professional recording studio. Think Live Lounge, but for up-and-coming Devon artists.

The Devonstream Sessions Producer will be the main person organising, managing and marketing the Devonstream Sessions project.

This is a behind-the-scenes project management job. It would suit someone with excellent organisation skills and a desire to build a career in a production or technical role in the music or broadcast industries.

Main duties

  • Marketing, using a variety of techniques:
    • Creating a campaign that will reach local musicians, encouraging them to apply to take part.
    • Creating a campaign that will reach the wider public, encouraging them to listen.
  • Listening to demos and shortlisting a good mixture of artists representing different backgrounds and musical styles.
  • Working with selected artists and our studio partners to organise and complete recording sessions on schedule (including all related admin and paperwork).
  • Preparing the recorded audio for broadcast and adding it to Devonstream’s playout system.
  • Organising their own work and keeping in regular communication with the rest of the team, so we all know what’s going on.

Who are we looking for?

The job-holder will have lots of conversations going on at the same time, so it’s important they can communicate clearly and keep on top of their messages. They’ll need to keep a cool head and friendly manner, even under pressure. They’ll always have a ‘plan b’, just in case things don’t go quite as expected.

In addition, we’re looking for someone with:

  • A love of music and other arts/cultural activity, with respect for all genres and styles
  • An interest in (and ideally some knowledge of) Devon’s music scene
  • A desire to develop a career in music, broadcasting or a related field
  • A keen eye (and ear) for detail
  • Basic IT skills (email, web searching, word processing, spreadsheets, etc)
  • A commitment to diversity, equality and environmental sustainability

This role will help the job-holder to:

  • Develop their team working and project management skills
  • Build their professional network in the music and media industries
  • Develop a portfolio, showreel or demo that helps them take the next step in their career

It’s important to say that we’re looking for someone with the right attitude and a desire to learn and develop. No formal training, qualifications or previous experience in this industry is necessary. We can teach the successful job-holder everything they need to know and provide all the equipment they will need.
