Music Victoria is expanding to create the Victorian Music Development Office and it needs a General Manager.

Victoria’s Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley announced the expansion of Music Victoria saying “This is all about taking Victorian music to the next level – by backing our industry’s best and brightest and inspiring the artists of tomorrow.”

“The Music Market will be a hub of creativity, allowing musicians to share ideas and collaborate on projects, get training and do business.”

Under the Victorian Music Development Office the department will oversee the creation of:
– An industry research program
– A free event program featuring international speakers
– An export focused program that includes global marketing campaigns about Victorian acts
– Music business development activities including small business and enterprise lab
– A service providing free or low-cost advice to music businesses

The VMDO will also be charged with the implementation of Support Acts for the Big Names, a campaign supporting diversity and inclusion in contemporary music programming. This campaign will focus on increasing live music opportunities for First Peoples, women, and under-represented artists by encouraging promoters to book these acts as support to larger musicians.

The GM is required to be someone with a burning desire to drive improvement, and with:
• Existing music industry networks at State, National and International levels
• A deep understanding of current issues facing the Victorian and National music industry
• Highly developed team management skills
• Expert project management skills including financial and project reporting
• The ability to work to a strategic plan and critical metrics
• Capacity to develop partnerships, and advanced stakeholder management and engagement skills
• Experience in small business development
• Strong communication and interpersonal skills
• An understanding of the Creative Industries
• The ability to identify industry gaps and issues and develop and apply creative solutions.
