City of London seeking applications for Music Industry Development Officer position

The City of London has issued a job posting for a Music Industry Development Officer, working in the City Manager’s Community & Economic Innovation division.

“The Music Industry Development Officer is responsible for working with the Music Industry Resource Committee composed of representatives from: the City of London, Tourism London Inc. and the London Arts Council on implementation of the London Music Strategy,” reads the position’s Summary of Duties. “Specifically, the Music Industry Development Officer works towards advancing the eleven (11) Key Priorities from the London Music Strategy. The advancing of each of these Key Priorities may involve several organizations, including many community partners.”

Tourism London shared news of the job position this past weekend on Twitter:

The position marks another step forward in the London’s Music Strategy, which was developed by London’s Music Industry Development Task Force in 2014. Earlier this month, the strategy was advanced with the announcement that the iconic downtown building at 182 Dundas St., home to Nash Jewellers for nearly a century, would be repurposed to accelerate London’s music sector. The project, dubbed The London Music Division, is proposed to act as a collective centralized resource for the commercial music sector, featuring a Music Incubator, the London Music Hall of Fame, and a future Music Office.
