An important part of the Finance Team’s work is the payment of fees to the freelance musicians including those who play in the Orchestra, work with LSO Discovery or perform at other concerts and events. The LSO is seeking a numerate and highly organised Player Fees Coordinator to be the musicians’ key point of contact for financial and related matters and who will have primary responsibility for processing the player fees for all aspects of the LSO’s work, working alongside the Finance & Resources Manager to ensure that all payments are calculated accurately and paid promptly.
This role also involves responding to ad hoc queries from players and providing administrative support in a number of related areas, such as LSO Member administration, instrument insurance and loans to players for instrument purchases.
This is a unique role requiring an understanding of the workings of an orchestra, and the ability to understand and apply complex rules for fee calculations. The successful candidate will be used to working methodically and to a high degree of accuracy, and able to consistently meet key deadlines. This is not a pure finance role, and previous accounting knowledge is not essential, although the ability and willingness to learn basic accounting principles is required. Full training will be given, but the ability to pick up policies and processes quickly will be important.
This role offers responsibility and ownership over an essential part of the LSO’s finance systems, with close interaction with colleagues from the Concerts and Discovery departments as well as with the LSO’s musicians.
Salary range: £25,000-£30,000 per annum, according to experience.
The closing date for applications is Wednesday 17th August at 10am.
