Repertoire Data Quality Coordinator
Full time, Permanent
Founded in 1934, PPL is the UK music industry's collective management organisation (CMO) for over 110,000 performers and record companies. We license recorded music in the UK when it is played in public (shops, bars, nightclubs, offices etc.) or broadcast (BBC, commercial radio, commercial TV etc.) and ensure that revenue flows back to our members. These include both independent and major record companies, together with performers ranging from emerging grassroots artists through to established session musicians and globally renowned artists. PPL's public performance licensing is carried out on PPL's behalf by PPL PRS, the joint venture between PPL and PRS for Music.
We also collect performance rights internationally when music is played overseas in public and used on TV, radio and some online streaming services, as well as for private copying. In 2019 we collected £86.7 million, in part thanks to our network of over 95 agreements with CMOs around the world. International revenues are an increasingly important revenue stream for performers and recording rightsholders. In 2019 we collected £271.8 million while also distributing money to over 119,000 performers and recording rightsholders.
PPL's Repertoire Team
PPL's Repertoire team are experts when it comes to music data. Through managing the PPL Repertoire Database they provide services and analysis on data submitted by PPL Members to ensure that requirements set out in the PPL Data Policy are met. Their work ensures that we can maximise revenue generation and pay-through. The Repertoire team also works to resolve key data gaps at source wherever possible, as well as promoting industry standards and working on international projects to improve music data quality.
PPL continue to follow the government guidance regarding COVID-19 with the priority of keeping of employees safe and well. Our Soho based office remains open and has been made COVID-19 secure with strict measures in place. The majority of PPL employees are currently working remotely unless there are extenuating circumstances preventing this. We have no imminent plans for this arrangement to change. We will adopt a remote recruitment and on boarding process for this role and expect it to be based remotely until government guidance changes, at which point office working will be required. This can be discussed on a case by case basis.
