Job Description

ABOUT IMS

A globally respected and recognised organisation with 13 years heritage, International Music Summit was created by and for those that love electronic music and help shape its industry.

Our goals are to continue to unite our industry through thought leadership, to celebrate our culture, to support & provide education and to be a driver of progressive change; with a focus on equality, diversity, sustainability and wellness & self-care.

Our flagship summit, IMS Ibiza, is held annually in May and unites thousands of delegates from the global electronic music ecosystem from over fifty countries for a week of conversation, connection and celebration. We curate hundreds of the world’s best thinkers, strategists and creatives to debate the most pressing issues facing our industry today, as well as producing networking events for industry leaders, artists and tastemakers along with some of the best parties on the island of Ibiza.

We maintain a dialogue with our community across the year, using our platform to communicate our strategy and developments under our key brand pillars.

IMS was created by Pete Tong & Ben Turner in 2007 during a crisis moment for electronic music, we remain as committed now as we were then to driving electronic music forward and helping to create a more sustainable and thoughtful industry.

This person will own the entire IMS social media and content strategy, reporting into the General Manager, with overall responsibility for the management and growth of IMS Ibiza & IMS College social media channels.
