Work experience

Southbank Sinfonia helps young musicians embark on successful careers in music. We are also very happy, where possible, to help young people take a first step in arts administration.

We are occasionally able to offer short work experience opportunities to recent graduates, or individuals studying at university or college, who are particularly interested in pursuing a career in music administration. Candidates may have the opportunity to shadow our operations team as they organise the orchestra’s daily ventures, or support other members of the administrative team on activities relating to education and outreach, marketing or fundraising.

Though unpaid, this experience may prove a useful addition to your CV when applying for jobs. Opportunities may arise lasting a day, a week, or sometimes longer on specific projects and usually take place at our base in central London and/or at our performance venues between January and October, the orchestra’s annual season.

If you are interested in applying, please email an up-to-date CV detailing your education, any relevant experience and accomplishments, together with a covering letter that outlines your career aspirations and what an opportunity like this could offer you, to Peter Smith, Administration Manager at peter[AT]southbanksinfonia[DOT]co[DOT]uk. Please also give an indication of your availability in the coming months. Our busy schedule means that work experience placements are limited throughout the year, but your details will be kept on file so we can consider you when the next opportunity arises.
