Are you an efficient and enthusiastic administrator looking for an exciting role supporting music creators and making a significant difference to their careers?


If so, then our latest vacancy could be for you:


PRS Foundation, Administrator (Job Share)

  • Part-time/2 days per week permanent role, £22,000 – £26,000 p.a. pro rata
  • Based in central London


Who are we?

PRS Foundation is the UK’s leading charitable funder of new music and talent development across all genres.

We are a small, committed and friendly team of 10 full-time and 4 part-time staff and we play a crucial role investing in the future of new music and supporting talent development across the UK by enabling music creators to realise their potential. Since 2000, PRS Foundation has given more than £44 million to over 8,500 new music initiatives by awarding grants and leading partnership programmes which respond to specific needs and gaps in funding.

9 out of the 12 Mercury Prize 2022 nominees had received this vital PRS Foundation grant support (including the winner Little Simz) and the charity has supported BRITS, RPS, AIM and Ivors Award-winners. Perhaps more than anything this demonstrates that timely investment in exciting, diverse and innovative talent works.

We believe that all talented music creators should be able to create innovative and exceptional music, develop sustainable careers and reach audiences internationally.

Widely respected as an adventurous and proactive funding body, PRS Foundation supports a huge and exciting range of music activity – from composer residencies and artist development programmes to festivals and showcases in the UK and overseas. Our support, which is overseen by our specialist team and network of independent advisors, is known as a kitemark for quality and innovation. And we tackle inequities and barriers across the music sector, launching Women Make Music and co-founding global gender equality initiative, Keychange. In 2021 we launched the POWER UP initiative to tackle anti-Black racism in music.


Is this job for you?

We are looking for an efficient and enthusiastic administrator who is passionate about music and interested in supporting the work of an ambitious and independent charitable Foundation. You will have proven organisational, communication, and IT skills in a similar or related environment.

You will have a broad and up-to date knowledge of new music and the challenges that music creators are facing in the current climate. You will be excited about the opportunity of contributing to a small, dynamic organisation. You will be able to work effectively in a busy, hands-on role.

As a Foundation employee, we would expect you to operate as a collaborative, inclusive and respectful team player, championing and keeping up to date with the broad range of programmes the Foundation delivers whilst inspiring colleagues to support and champion the work you are directly responsible for. We expect staff to be passionate and driven team-players who can also represent the Foundation positively at events.

You will also show a commitment to the work of PRS Foundation and an awareness of our role within the music industry. Full information can be found on our website
