January 2017 saw the official opening of the Elbphilharmonie, a world-class concert hall and Hamburg's new landmark. Together with the Laeiszhalle, which is steeped in tradition, this means that Hamburg now has two first-class concert halls that share a single profile: to provide a musical experience of the utmost quality, variety and approachability, with an openness to the diversity of modern society and to the issues of the day. Lively interpretations of the classical masterpieces play just as great a role as the discovery of contemporary music from different cultures.
No less varied than the programme are the different responsibilities of the Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle team: in addition to concert planning and organising, ticket sales, educational and technical work for the regular concert hall operations, there are also departments like visitors' service, development, IT, digital operations, marketing and communications and general accounting.
Anyone wanting to apply for a position in the team should have an adequate knowledge of German.
