The role heads the Contemporary Music Editorial Department at Faber Music, servicing the performance works of its distinguished living classical composers; managing its team of freelance copyists to bring performing materials to fruition, and overseeing printed publications.
This is an important and rewarding role for the right person, who will be skilled in Sibelius systems and file management. Previous experience in editing contemporary scores is necessary and the likely candidate will be a music graduate/composer familiar with today’s musical language who can bring persuasive judgement to editorial questions. Strong organisational skills are essential, with the capacity to work to deadlines in often stressful situations. The successful candidate will have the ability to understand the different requirements of our internationally established composers and the capability to uphold the company’s stylistic editorial standards. Budgeting and project management will be a significant aspect of the position, as will the ability to communicate effectively with others in the Performance Music Department.
