  • Sales experience essential; either outbound sales in a business to business environment or music equipment sales: music equipment/instruments retail/wholesale.
  • A genuine passion for music and music equipment; the ability to play one or more musical instrument is desirable.
  • A demonstrable understanding of the modern media landscape including traditional and non-traditional forms of media.

  • Facilitate editorial co-ordination and manage a team of interns.



  • You’ll be part of one of Australia’s largest youth culture and music media companies based in East Brunswick, and will enjoy everything this fast-paced and exciting job offers.
  • You’re the sort of person who would love being out in the field in the music, musical instruments and studio equipment industries. You’ll also have the opportunity to travel interstate.  
  • Salary and uncapped incentives on offer, plus phone and car allowance.
