New! One-stop-shop website to help young people discover the range of jobs in creative industries

25 Sep 2019

Great news! A one-stop-shop website is now live online to help young people discover the range of jobs available across all the creative industries.

DiscoverCreative.Careers is designed to help students and their parents, guardians and teachers
find out more about the careers in industries including performing arts, advertising, architecture, fashion, film and television, museums, galleries and publishing – and the routes to them.

You can search results according to individual interests, and the website produces a personalised selection of potential roles. It directs young people to job descriptions and case studies on the websites of the expert partners in the initiative and to live opportunities for work experience or workplace visits where available.

Young people can save their unique results page, personalised to their own interests and talents,
as their own learning resource. The site also provides teachers, careers advisors and educators with up-to-date statistics on creative careers, lesson resources and an address book of useful organisations. Employers are also encouraged to get involved by promoting opportunities for events or work experience and showcase the experiences of young people visiting creative businesses to inspire others.

Aimee Higgins, Director of Employers & Partnerships, The Careers & Enterprise Company, said:
“DiscoverCreative.Careers is a fantastic resource for young people, parents and teachers to better understand the opportunities that the creative industries have to offer and forms part of a broader programme of activity with employers that will bring this information to life. We are delighted to be supporting the industry to make these resources and activities available to schools, colleges and young people across England. We hope young people from all backgrounds are inspired to explore the exciting opportunities that the creative industries have to offer.”
