All placements last for 12-months. We pay you £21255 per year (£23303 for London-based roles), and you get to share in some of the same benefits as our permanent employees; an employee purchase scheme, free breakfast and lunch, health insurance, generous holiday entitlement, company music events, lunch and learns from across the business and external visits – we’re all about innovation, fresh thinking and creating awesome music making experiences for our customers.

Our nine brands, Focusrite, Focusrite Pro, Novation, Ampify, ADAM Audio, Martin Audio, Optimal Audio, Linea Research and Sequential come together around a common mission to remove barriers to creativity.
