We are looking for a self-motivated, master multi-tasker – who is based in NYC – with excellent organizational skills and an upbeat attitude.
Description: The successful applicant will work with the Managing Director and staff providing client/project representation support and executive assistant support as required. This person will work directly with a list of artists, servicing their performance engagements with responsibilities including, but not limited to, arranging logistics such as travel and housing, issuing and processing contracts, preparing itineraries, applying for work visas, maintaining press materials, and organizing financial information.
The Managerial Assistant will work together with a multitude of organizations both in the United States and abroad to facilitate contractual details, timely payments, immigration logistics, travel and housing accommodations, publicity, and international tax exemptions on behalf of the artists.
The Managerial Assistant will maintain consistent communication with the artists and presenters to manage and implement pertinent details related to performance engagements. In addition to performing tasks such as expense reporting, travel arrangements, and administrative support for the Managing Director, the successful applicant will have the opportunity to attend many classical music concerts.
Skills: Ideal candidates should be highly self-motivated and resourceful with a working knowledge of classical music and interest in arts management. We are looking for NYC-based bright, organized, creative, detail-oriented individuals, who possess a positive attitude and the ability to take direction and follow through on multiple projects simultaneously. Strong communication skills are vital, since much of the work with artists and presenters is managed through email and phone. Computer literacy and proficiency in Microsoft and Mac are a must and fluency in computer systems and ‘problem solving’ is highly desirable. A bachelor’s degree (minimum) and experience in the music industry are a plus.
Salary: Competitive compensation and vacation.
