As part of the Academy’s commitment to preparing our students for professional careers, the External Bookings Manager assumes responsibility for managing requests and subsequent engagements from external sources who wish to book Academy students to perform at events and functions as well as working with external festivals, concert promoters and venues to programme series of concerts by Academy ensembles.  Forming part of the Academy’s Concerts Department, this role encompasses end-to-end planning, programming, logistical and financial administration and oversight of all necessary arrangements to ensure the success of around 450 external bookings per year.
