Ministry of Sound

For over two decades, Ministry of Sound has created the moments that people live for. In 1991 you had to be here to experience the euphoria – today whether you’re listening, watching or reading anything Ministry of Sound, there is still only one rule: the music comes first.

Opening on 21st September 1991 and inspired by New York’s Paradise Garage, Ministry of Sound was the UK’s first nightclub dedicated to house music. The site was a derelict bus garage in a part of South London considered more infamous than famous.

On the opening night there was no alcohol, three flashing lights, moody security and unless you knew the names of at least a half-dozen Chicago DJs, you were unlikely to get past the legendary ‘pickers’. These strict club custodians were responsible for ensuring only the best mix of party people would pass the prison-like gates.

Consider a career at Ministry of Sound Group and be part of a global entertainment business. Based in our London office, right alongside our iconic nightclub, our company comprises the club, events, partnerships with global brands, digital content, music publishing (MOS Publishing) and our flagship fitness studio ‘The Arches’​, where ‘Ministry does Fitness’​. We have new businesses being announced soon.

Our teams work across diverse areas: club marketing and management, sales and marketing, social media, worldwide tours and events, event management and production, digital content, legal, finance, IT, HR, facilities as well as our club and gym operations.

Providing consumers with a broad array of quality music and entertainment depends on maintaining an inspired and entrepreneurial environment full of creative and talented employees. Our history is built on thinking differently, challenging established ideas and being distinctive. We are bold, pioneering and authentic. We dance to our own beat.

Deserves a 5 star

5/ 5

House music never got better. I’ve only visited the nightclub twice but I can still imagine myself there all the time. It’s such an amazing place and I give it to them for their name too.
