Ray Pope – Universal Music – Talent Acquisition Manager
Graduated from Leeds University after studying Popular and World Music.

Started off as a temp at Warner and worked my way up to Recruitment Manager heading up recruitment for the UK and International side of the business
Specialised in finding talent of all levels from apprentice to SVP. Worked at Warner for approx 7 years.
Joined Universal Music in September 2015 where I concentrate on sourcing the best talent across all the UK labels both business focused and creative.
