Jobs for creative people

The Creative Industries contributed £84bn to UK economy in 2014 according to figures released by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. They also reveal the number of jobs in the industry grew by almost 9% between 2013 and 2014 – almost double the rest of the economy as a whole (4.6%). What does this mean in reality? 

The term "Creative Indsutries" might be quite unknown to you, but the sector, includes film, television, radio, video and photography and it grew almost twice as fast as rest of British economy.

So, if you're researching jobs for creative people now is a great time to get started with our resources. How many of you know exactly what you want to go on to study at art college?

Some of you I am sure have very clear ideas of what kind of creative careers are available, others not.

Video Case Studies
I certainly had no idea what I might end up doing having studied for a BA (Hons) Fine Art in Printmaking. To be honest I don’t think I ever really questioned what art careers were out there. Now to me, that sounds crazy in hindsight.

But with information being so much more readily available these days with the internet etc. there really is no excuse for not checking out what your passion in Painting for example might lead you to as a career.

We’ve selected 10 video case studies from artists and designers that give you a glimpse into their current career. Keep an eye on this page as we will be adding more videos with the aim to cover every subject area.

So if your particular subject area of interest isn’t here just now, pop back in a few weeks and hopefully we will have it then.
