Through our work:

  • Disabled people lead the change.

  • Good practice is celebrated and rewarded.
  • More disabled people play their part in music and live event industries.

We have been working with the UK’s music and live event industries for over 20 years.

As a disability-led charity, we welcome applicants from all backgrounds, and work with employees to meet any access requirements.

About the role

We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic person to spearhead work to expand upon our engagement with and support for diverse disabled audiences.

We are looking for someone who has the ability to connect with members of the public to involve them in our work and support them in sharing lived experiences, often for the first time. Confident in communicating with people from diverse walks of life, you will be able to translate real life experiences into influencing content for music and live events professionals, as well as material to empower disabled people to advocate for themselves as audience members.

Since our inception, accessibility for audiences has been at the heart of our organisation’s advocacy and influencing work. Now it is vital for us to strengthen and extend our ability to engage with disabled people facing intersectional and impairment-specific barriers, channelling lived experience to our industry audiences to affect a new era of positive change.

The Audience Development Manager will lead on forging partnerships across the UK to secure the involvement of new disabled audiences with our work, producing content and campaigns with colleagues to raise awareness of issues impacting disabled people seeking to access live events.

What do we mean by ‘intersectional’?

With ‘diversity’ and ‘disability’ commonly used as a catch-all term, many individual experiences run the risk of not being heard.

People can identify as many things at the same time, and face discrimination and barriers on multiple fronts.

‘Intersectionality’ refers to the ways in which people can face barriers and discrimination based on multiple identities at the same time including those related to gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability and class.
