The successful candidate will play a key role in devising and implementing a wide range of promotional activities and helping build our future marketing strategy.

You’ll need to be a results-driven, inspired motivator and musician, with a passion for black and white keys, and people. Our award-winning instrument portfolio requires someone with the ability to communicate a deep knowledge and understanding, whilst being able to excite those who love music and keyboards.
