Former student gains position at CAA (Creative Arts Agency)

on January 10, 2020

Congratulations to Harrison Jones, a former Barnfield College student who has been accepted for a position at CAA (Creative Arts Agency).

CAA is a talent agency that has represented a whole host of well-known music artists, including the likes of Ariana Grande and Jason Derulo. Describing his time at Barnfield college as a “vital step” to his current success, Harrison is now working as a Music Touring Assistant within the company.

Harrison’s first breakthrough into the music industry came during his time at Barnfield, when he had the opportunity to work for the record label Circus Records, based in Shoreditch.

He said “The Music course at Barnfield College was a fundamental step in beginning my career in the music industry. The tutors were excellent and students got a great personal teaching experience”.

“Gaining my qualification at Barnfield enabled me to go on to study at the University of Westminster.”

Once he moved to London, Harrison was able to make serious headway into his music career. He received two awards for academic achievement and went on to graduate with a first-class honours degree.

Thanks to this success, he was then able to move quickly into a position at Be-Hookd, a digital marketing agency specialising in the music industry. It boasts an impressive history of collaboration projects, including with The Wombats and Tini Tempah.

He will soon return to the college to discuss his experiences with current students, and help them to follow in his footsteps.

We wish him all the best for the future, and are excited to see where his career takes him from here. If you are interested in studying music at Barnfield, please click here.
