BIMM London Event Management graduate Marcus Robinson recently began a full-time internship at the UK branch of Spinefarm Records.
The label, which is part of the Universal Music Group, boasts an impressive roster of alternative acts including Ghost, Broken Witt Rebels, Bullet For My Valentine, Nightwish, Orange Goblin and German metal superstars Rammstein.
Marcus’ official role is ‘Label Assistant and Promotions’, a position which involves assisting all members of staff carry out their daily duties. The internship sees him handling everything from mail outs, updating artist databases, press release material and updating the label website.
“This opportunity at Spinefarm has enabled me to enter the working world straight out of education, putting all my knowledge acquired over the last three years into use.” Said Marcus.
“It’s a learning process with a role such as mine, but what better way to acclimatise to the industry than getting involved?”
We’re extremely happy Marcus has found his feet so quickly with a position at a label as highly regarded as Spinefarm. We wish him the best of luck with his internship and look forward to seeing how his career develops.
