Closes 2 Jun 2022

CREATIVE PROJECT MANAGER

Elefant Traks has always been an artist-centred label. Started in 1998 by a group of friends, some of whom would then go on to form The Herd, it was founded on multiculturalism and a sense of community. The ultimate aim has always been about creating and releasing music that stood for something.

Decades later Elefant Traks has established itself as one of the leading independent hip hop and electronic music businesses in the country. We pride ourselves on being a family, having each other’s backs and buzzing in the joys and power of creating music. 

We’d like you to be a part of our story, and we’ll be lucky enough to be part of yours.

ABOUT THE ROLE

The Creative Project Manager sees the whole picture of an artist’s presence, the concepts of who they are and where their music can fit.

You will coordinate single, EP and album campaigns, as well as oversee strategy for 1-3 tours per year. You are passionate about music culture and understanding the creative vision of each artist, but also unafraid to fail in the pursuit of innovation and original ideas.
