Careers and Industry

Helping Students to Thrive in Industry

The role of the Careers and Industry department is central to everything we do at WaterBear. Through our industry partners and contacts we continuously seek new and exciting opportunities countrywide and beyond to help students build connections and support their pathway into the industry. Alongside access to events, gigs and conferences we are committed to providing performance opportunities at venues and festivals such as Tramlines, ArcTanGent and The Great Escape, and work experience and placements such as session work, sound engineering, production, event management, and marketing within venues, festivals and record labels.

Support and Development

Throughout the year we organise industry masterclasses and unrivalled behind the scenes access with bands and industry guests such as Atlanta Cobb, Royal Blood, Frogleap, Idles, Afrika Green, Everything Everything, James Fitchett, and Goc O'Callaghan providing incredible insights into the music industry. Our Careers and Industry team also provide 1-1 careers advice and artist development alongside mentoring sessions to help students think commercially and guide them into the next stage of their career.

Our Careers and Industry in Action

We are joined by WaterBear Josh, who is currently studying the performance course in Sheffield, to tell us about his recent experience as a guitar tech! During our development week, Josh worked with @therosadocsuk at their sold-out homecoming show at City Hall as a guitar tech, meaning he was responsible for making sure the band’s equipment was set up, instruments tuned and ready to go, and being on hand in the event of any mishaps! Josh did a fantastic job and speaks here about the experience and insights he gained.
