Do you love music?

Are you obsessed with finding out how your favourite artist went from making their first song to then having it streamed millions of times around the world?

Are you curious about what happens behind the scenes, wanting to understand every last detail about how a song, music video or album changed the world?

Ever wondered what it’s like to work right at the heart of one of the most successful major labels?

This is your opportunity to join the Sony Music Academy by applying for our 2020 Sony Music intern program!

We are looking for exceptionally creative, bright, out-of-the-box thinking, music loving people to join us for 12 month full-time paid internships.

You’ll need to be ready to roll your sleeves up and get involved supporting our fast-paced teams. You won’t be job-hopping, you’ll be working as part of our super busy teams within the business by learning on the job and gaining some insight and experience to kick-start your career in the music industry.

This incredible opportunity will provide you with exposure to the music industry and your output during this time will directly impact the success of our artists. You will learn and develop your skills from within Sony Music’s unique environment and work alongside its well-respected workforce, whilst being mentored to ignite and inspire your creativity and passion for the industry.

We are looking for people who are close to finishing their studies, have recently graduated with a relevant qualification or alternatively, have obtained experience working or supporting the music industry.

We are offering multiple placements in our Sydney office and one placement in each of our Melbourne and Brisbane offices. Please ensure that you indicate your preference in your application.

During your internship, you will be placed for at least 6 months at a time, with a maximum of two different departments, depending on your area of preference and skill set. The departments we are currently offering placements in are:

Communications & PR
Artist Relations
Creative Team – “SGO”
Australian Artists Marketing
International Artists Marketing
Commercial Music Group
Digital Sales
Data & Analytics
Business & Legal Affairs
The Orchard

Application Requirements

Please ensure that you only include the following with your initial application.

A short video where you articulate your relevant skills and experience and why you want to take part in our internship, as well as a 3 page (max) creative submission, uploaded as a PDF, answering the following questions:

  1. What do you think 18-24 year olds are looking for from artists today?
  2. What was the best gig that you attended in the last 6 months?
  3. Which artist/band first ignited your passion for music and why?
  4. What song lyric most resonates with you or describes you and why?
  5. How does social media positively and negatively impact the music industry?

Please embed the hyperlink to your video within the above creative submission.

This is your opportunity to show your creative flair and interest in the music industry!

Applications close two weeks later at midnight (AEST) Sunday 22 September 2019.

Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to take part in some online surveys and provide further creative submissions. The top group of candidates will then be invited to attend in-person assessment centers in Sydney in early November to close out the recruitment process.

Successful interns will be provided with their offer packs prior to the summer holidays.

All internships will then commence on Monday 3 February 2020.

Remember, if you’re not available for the Sydney assessment centres in early November by making your own travel arrangements, then unfortunately the Academy won’t be right for you this year as this is a key part of the recruitment process. All interns must also be available for full-time office based work in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane (depending on your own preference) in February 2020 for the full 12 months. Applicants must also be aged 18 years or over by February 2020.

Only if you have any complications with your application, please reach out to us on:
