The Music Market / Arts and Media have 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 companies to work for.  
We recruit for a wide range of businesses, including: record companies, independents, booking agents, publishing houses, studios, management, promotions agencies, digital agencies and tech companies.
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 relationship and making sure that 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 that we know will contribute to the growth and success of the brand.
Equally, we like to get to know our candidates so that we can save them time when proposing roles and then place them somewhere they will shine.

Some comments from our clients...

Universal Music has worked with Helen Ward and her team since the 90s. I have always been impressed with the calibre and suitability of the candidates they present and the professionalism of the service they provide.

Their understanding of our constantly changing industry is second to none – as is their network of contacts. They ‘get’ our culture and who will be the best fit for our business and why. A true business partner.


Live Nation and Ticketmaster have used Helen and her team at Arts and Media/The Music Market since their company started nearly 20 years ago. This long-standing relationship has been built on partnership and understanding of how to most effectively provide the most talented and inclusive shortlisting of potential applicants.

I have always been impressed by their ability to interpret a brief and supply us with temporary and permanent outstanding candidates. The company specialises in the entertainment industry and has a unique understanding of both the sector and the people who work in it. Their network of contacts is unsurpassed and they are my go-to agency.
