More minority ethnic staff being employed in music industry, study shows

A new study has shown a significant increase in the amount of Black, Asian and minority ethnic staff employed in the music industry.

Since 2016, there has been an increase from 15.6% to 22.3% of minority ethnic employees in the industry, according to a new report from UK Music.

Despite this change, representation in higher-paid jobs is at a worse level, with only 12.2% of jobs paying over £100,000 a year held by non-whites, and 27% by women.

Of lower paid jobs, with salaries of under £15,000, 59.4% are held by minority ethnic employees, and 33.6% by women.
