How to Apply – JW Recruitment
We are constantly on the lookout for the most talented Open Format DJs to join our team, and always get asked; “how do I become a JW DJ?”. Below we have laid out a breakdown of our recruitment process to help you get the information you need to apply.
At JW DJ Agency, we are committed to maintaining a supportive and relaxed team culture so that everyone feels welcomed, included, and appreciated. As such we focus on how music establishes unity and celebrates differences. The JW brand strives to cultivate a culture and ethos celebrating diversity and inclusivity across the board. Our doors are open to students from all backgrounds no matter their gender, sexuality, or religion. We actively encourage students from black communities and ethnic minorities into our friendly institution with special emphasis on creating opportunities for equal representation in the industry. Music is a universal language that nobody should be excluded from.
Please only consider applying if you are an Open Format DJ, who enjoys playing ALL genres. Most DJS can play RnB and Hip Hop, House and Chart music but we need to know that our DJS can dig deep into other areas of other music genres and mix them beautifully if required. JW DJ is not for everyone, so please don’t apply if you don’t enjoy playing everything!
Also, we require all of our team commit to a minimum of two Saturday nights a month, and all of our team members need to have their own controller and laptop, for venues that do not have in house equipment.
You will need to provide us with the following three mixes (either as an MP3 file or a link to your Soundcloud / MixCloud files):
1 x 60-minute Open Format club style mix (a mix of all genres)
1 x 60-minute mix of a genre of your choice (this can be just your favourite genre)
1 x 30-minute mix of 70’s, 80’s and 90’s party classics (no RnB or Hip Hop in this mix)
All the above needs to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with an EPK or press kit, and recent headshot. We would also like to be sent links to your social media, and especially your Instagram handle. We receive so many applications and take the time to listen to every one, and provide feedback, we are an extremely busy agency so please be patient, with our amazing recruitment team. The phone numbers on our website are for our booking managers who are not involved with the recruitment process at all. If you have any questions please direct them to our recruitment team via the email above.
If you impress with your mixes, our DJ managers will call you for a couple of phone interviews. We are an inclusive and diverse group and need to make sure that you have the right personality and drive. If you are successful after the phone interviews, we will invite you to trial with our training and development manager. This is so we can see you in action.
On passing the trial stage you will then be invited to meet the team and attend our week long induction sessions, after this we will unleash your amazing DJ skill on our fabulous clients!
We look forward to welcoming you into our family and wish you the best of luck with your applications!
