Jobs for Creative People

Jobs for creative people

The Creative Industries, above all, contributed £84bn to UK economy in 2014. This is according to figures released by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. As a result, the number of jobs for creative people in the industry grew by almost 9% between 2013 and 2014. This is almost double in comparison to the rest of the economy as a whole (4.6%). So then what does this mean in reality? 

Incidentally, the term "Creative Industries" might be quite unknown to you. 

In brief, the sector, includes film, television, radio, video and photography etc. It grew almost twice as fast as rest of British economy hence a great career choice.

By the way I had no idea what career I might pursue, studying for a BA Fine Art Printmaking. To be honest I don’t think I ever really questioned what art careers were out there. Now to me, in this case, that sounds crazy in hindsight. For the most part of my degree I had no idea which transferable skills I'd learnt. Or how my education was relevant to other professions in the creative industries.

To begin with, check out our FREE eBook on Employability and Transferable Skills. Above all, this helps you to see exactly how valuable a creative career is.

In summary, information is so much more readily available these days with the internet for instance. Therefore check out what your passion in Painting for example might lead you to as a career.
