About Boiler Room

Boiler Room started with a webcam taped to a wall, broadcasting from a warehouse in London, opening a keyhole to the city’s underground. It was DIY at it’s finest; raw uncut and homemade.

As we've grown into a global independent music platform and cultural curator, we remain true to that history. We connect club culture to the wider world - on-screen and IRL - through parties, video, radio and more.

Our mission is to showcase underground music & culture in new ways – giving a voice to under-represented communities and to share stories from the fringes of the mainstream.

YOUR ROLE

PURPOSE OF THE ROLE

Boiler Room supports & promotes underground music scenes by creating distinct event+content 'platforms' (aka ‘IPs’) that represent those scenes & the people at the heart of them.

From Low Heat - a DIY London youth music & fashion series, to System - a platform that celebrates the positive impact of migration on music & culture, to Appreciation of Lyricism - a platform that promotes the poets, rappers & spoken word artists whose rich, emotive storytelling is pushing the frontier of musical & cultural self-expression.

We’re looking for somebody to come on board & help secure low-to-mid level sponsorship for some of these existing platforms & a bunch of forthcoming editorial initiatives.

Somebody who has a broad & extensive list of mid-level UK contacts at brands (and their PR / creative agencies) that are known to support culture. Especially within the alcohol, fashion & lifestyle categories.

Somebody with a deep understanding of music & culture, but also versed in how brands operate, who can occupy a space in between our music team & commercial teams - unlocking brand conversations that support the very core of our business.

The role is offered initially as a 6-month position, full-time based in BR’s London HQ. If the candidate is successful, we will look to make the role a permanent position.
