BIMM Birmingham partner with Big Green Coach
We’re proud to be partnering with Birmingham-based Big Green Coach (BGC), a fellow Digbeth organisation, as we nurture music and events industry talent via recruitment and internship opportunities.
As the UK’s largest and most sustainable live events travel company, which this year celebrates its 15-year anniversary, Big Green Coach has offered graduate Ryan Ridley a full-time job as an Event Operations Assistant. In December, Ryan was even given the opportunity to represent the company at Rise Festival in Les Deux Alpes.
Jack McGill has also joined the BGC team as a part-time social media intern. Jack is looking to grow his events industry experience while completing his BA (Hons) in Music Marketing, Media and Communication.
Neil Ward, BIMM Music Institute Birmingham’s Careers Manager for music, commented:
“Big Green Coach is trusted in the music industry and is the perfect fit for BIMM graduates and internship opportunities. They’re a friendly and professional team that are well placed to help transform music theory into industry reality by providing a much-needed ‘foot in the door’. We are delighted with this partnership as we pride ourselves on our graduate success stories and the transferable skills and professionalism that our alumni display.”
Danny Newby, who co-founded Big Green Coach with Kevin Green 15 years ago, added:
“We have always been firm believers in nurturing music industry talent. Big Green Coach has taken thousands of festival goers to some of the biggest events in music. We have relationships with some of the best festivals in the industry, including Download, Creamfields, Boardmasters, Bestival, Isle of Wight Festival and Wireless, to name a few.
We quite often need some help from enthusiastic people who want to work in the events industry, and BIMM students and graduates are a great fit. This could be an internship, volunteering for a few hours in return for a festival ticket, or paid work for a couple of days at a busy event – we are passionate about nurturing talent with BIMM, and applications can be submitted via our website.”
