The Kickstart Scheme is part of the Government’s ‘Plan for Jobs’ skills and employment programmes, which also include Apprenticeships, T Levels and Traineeships.

The Lisa Lashes School of Music (LLSOM) has a unique and brand-new opportunity for young people with aspirations to work in the music and events industry. The LLSOM has an excellent team of professionals who play/have played an active role in successful events, as well as released countless successful music tracks. As the sector has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, nightclub owners, event organisers, music artists and DJs around the UK have been hit hard by the impact of shows cancelled and delayed due to the pandemic.

This role is an exciting time for young people who want to dive into the world of events with new challenges and fantastic opportunities. In addition, budding musicians and/or music producers will have the opportunity to work with established artists on various music projects, including their own music.

We would like to hear from young people, no matter their experience, who want to expand their knowledge in organising events and the music industry, demonstrate their passion to succeed, develop themselves and their employability skills.

The event and music production assistant will work closely and collectively with other young employees, team leaders, LLSOM management staff.

There will be general administrative tasks to complete, but the role could also include tasks such as:


  • Communicating with vendors, clients, and colleagues.
  • Assist in the creation of an action plan to promote the event.
  • Planning and/or producing promotional content using graphic design or presentation software.
  • Assist in the creation and/or review of legislative documents.
  • Working with ICT systems/databases/spreadsheets for organisational and financial purposes.
  • Assist management in daily tasks, which ensures the organisation of the event is efficient.

Music Production

  • Creating music for promotional content for festivals and events.
  • Working with other partners of LLSOM and supporting organisations to create music from a set brief.
  • Creating sounds available for licencing.
  • Distribute music released by LLSOM.

The LLSOM will ensure that employees have the tools necessary to develop them for the duration of their placement.
