Scotland and Northern Ireland Office

Scotland and Northern Ireland Office

Our team lobbies on behalf of members and the wider industry on issues that affect musicians – on a local and national level, at councils and at Scottish and Northern Irish parliament. We work closely with other music industry organisations, and represent the employment interests of members in the region.  We’re proud of our significantly increased membership in Northern Ireland – and how we’ve been developing the representation of musicians there. We are growing our presence with musicians working in dance and electronic music production and composition.

Contact us

We are here to provide advice to members based in Scotland and Northern Ireland, from guidance on their careers to legal issues – and if needs be, helping them to acquire further advice and representation through legal officials.
