About Us

ABOUT The Music Market / Arts and Media

The Music Market / Arts and Media team has been placing outstanding candidates within the music, creative and media industries for two decades – and as a result we attract many of the most talented candidates and exciting brands and companies. 
We recruit for a wide range of businesses – including record companies, independent labels, booking agents, publishing houses, studios, artist management and promoters, digital agencies and tech companies – to fill permanent, contract, temporary and part-time positions with experienced candidates.
Over the years we have invested in developing strong transparent partnerships with both clients and candidates and have proved our ability to translate a brief, however obscure, into a successful placement time and time again.
Our priority is relationships and making sure we understand each client’s individual culture and market in depth, so that we can both adapt to the changing needs of the businesses we serve and consistently place candidates we know will contribute to the growth and success of the brand. 
Equally, we like to get to know our candidates so we save them time when proposing roles and can place them somewhere they will shine.  
For both brands and individuals, we draw on our extensive industry knowledge and networks to cut out the clutter and place perfect candidates in their ideal roles.  


The Music Market was founded in 1999 and quickly became one of the UK’s leading music recruitment agencies. In response to increasing demand for our services from a wider client base, Arts and Media was then created to provide the same standard of service for film companies, TV broadcasters, media groups, advertising agencies, publishers and digital and mobile companies. 
Over those 20 years, The Music Market / Arts and Media has built up an excellent reputation for placing highly-competent people in roles they go on to exceed in. The majority of our extensive client base have been with us for over 15 years.

Wisebuddah Jingles and No Sheet Music have always used Arts and Media/The Music Market for recruitment for both temporary and permanent roles since 1999.
