Concord is the independent, worldwide leader in the development, management and acquisition of sound recordings, music publishing and theatrical performance rights. Concord has offices in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, London, Berlin and Miami.
Concord Music Publishing represents more than 390,000 copyrighted works spanning all musical genres and including many of the world’s most celebrated compositions by its most legendary creators. Concord Music Publishing is also home to a diverse group of contemporary songwriters and composers creating important and commercially-successful new songs and musical works. Boosey & Hawkes, the world’s leading classical music publisher, and The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization are also business units of Concord Music Publishing.
Concord Recorded Music is comprised of five active labels across many musical genres: Concord Records, Fantasy Records, Fearless Records, Loma Vista Recordings and Rounder Records. Concord is also home to the #1 kids’ music brand, KIDZ BOP.
The company’s historical labels are managed by its Craft Recordings team, and include such storied imprints as Fania, Independiente, Milestone, Musart, Nitro, Pablo, Prestige, Riverside, Savoy, Specialty, Stax, Telarc, Varèse Sarabande, Vee-Jay and Wind-up. Concord’s master recording portfolio contains more than 12,000 active albums and includes no less than 273 GRAMMY® winners (representing approximately 6.2% of all the GRAMMYs® ever awarded) and over 400 gold, platinum, multi-platinum and diamond RIAA certifications across 215 titles.
The UK Licensing team is a vital part of Concord, working alongside the publishing and recorded music sync teams and our global network of sub-publishers to ensure we grasp all synchronization opportunities for writers, artists and various catalogues.
Primarily handling licensing requests for TV, film and online uses, the position requires someone with a high degree of organisational skill and a keen eye for details, with an understanding of the intricacies of licensing both published works and master recordings.
The candidate must be comfortable dealing with clients, song-writers, artists and their managers on a daily basis, and will be adept at both quoting and issuing paperwork for all manner of syncs. The position will also require someone who is able to efficiently log, track and produce reports on the licensing activity from the UK team and sub-publishers.
We seek a highly motivated team player, who is passionate about music and able to perform their duties quickly and efficiently. The post will be full time in a lively, friendly and fast-paced environment based in our central London office.
This is not an exhaustive list of all activities worked on but is a guide to the individual’s responsibilities.
