“I would definitely recommend it to anyone around my age – late teens to early 20’s – who are studying in the creative industries, or just starting out, wanting to work in the creative industries”.

“I’ve learnt a lot of communication skills whilst doing interviews and talking to people.”

The UK’s creative industries are world leading and offer significant and varied employment opportunities for young people. They build on a range of enjoyable skills including literacy, visual expression, technical skills, and imagination. They also incorporate industries as varied as architecture, gaming and IT, marketing, film and television, libraries and museums and more. In 2018, the Creative Industries grew more than twice the rate of all other industries in the UK and accounted for more than 6% of all employment. They are highly future proof, using uniquely human skills. UK creative industries generate more than £100bn a year to the UK economy and employ more than 2m people.
