Paid Internship Creative Production

Job Description

A little bit about our team:

The Creative Production team plays a key role within WMUK’s physical and digital supply chain. We are the central cog that keeps things ticking. Uniquely, we work closely with almost all departments within the company, such as; A&R, Marketing, Commercial, Finance, Business Affairs, Production, Digital Operations, Press & Promotions as well as artists and their management. For this reason, it’s the perfect role to get a wider view of how record labels work and understand how music gets released.

We’re a close-knit bunch of 9 music lovers, split across two teams; Frontline (new music from the likes of Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Dua Lipa, Stormzy & Coldplay etc) and Catalogue (reissues from legendary acts like The Smiths, David Bowie and Pink Floyd etc).

Some of the best bits about our job:

  • We get to hear new music before most people in the company, not to mention the world!
  • Rather than working with just one label and a limited range of music, we work centrally with almost all of the labels within the company (except Classics and ADA). A huge variety of music.
  • We work across both physical and digital – so we make lots of lovely vinyl, award-winning boxsets, DVDs, Blu-Rays and CDs (tangible things to show your mum!), as well as digital formats.

An internship in this department looks like:

Origination (creating products, pulling assets together, making it all happen):

  • To assist the Creative Production team in the origination of all UK commercial formats, both physical and digital. This may include working with Warner’s marketing teams, sourcing music and label copy from A&R, creating layout documents for designers and liaising throughout the creation process, before final-checking artwork and audio, whilst arranging the delivery of all parts by the relevant deadlines, making sure to keep the Production & Digital Operations and any other key stakeholders updated on the progress.
  • The CP Intern will be solely responsible for the origination of all physical CD promos

Digital/Physical Music Promo:

  • Using a digital promo system called CRight, the CP Intern is largely responsible for securely sending the company’s pre-release music out to internal/external contacts around the world such as Spotify, Apple, high-profile journalists, radio presenters etc. to help attain promotion/reviews etc. whilst also preventing leaks.
  • Directly contributing to developments and new features of the CRight website and iOS/Android apps.
  • You will also be responsible for creating physical CD watermark promos where necessary

Other Duties:

  • Payment to Suppliers: To enter Purchase Order requests into the Sprinter system and follow through approval stages, ensuring our suppliers receive the correct payments on time.
  • To assist in maintaining the WMUK Release Schedule, checking all scheduling additions and amends that are sent by Marketing and run checks on all other information.
  • Checking pre-release DVD film content prior to BBFC classification.
  • Looking after the team’s archived shared folders and keeping them in order.
  • Assist with any ad hoc projects & support the Heads of Creative Production & Release Management Director as required.
  • Responsibility for setting up Aspera Digital Delivery Accounts for UK + European teams.
  • Looking after Stationary orders and courier bookings for the team
