‘For many young people there are few clear and visible pathways into the arts as a professional career route and this is why we’re thrilled to be part of the Discover! Creative Careers week.’ Learning and Participation Officer, The Customs House

By taking part, you’ll be joining the likes of the National Trust, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Pinewood Studios, Northern Ballet, Channel 4, Norwich Theatre Royal, Birmingham Museums Trust, Cockpit Arts, the Financial Times, Kudos TV, The National Archives, xsite Architecture, Blackpool Grand Theatre, The Historic Dockyard Chatham, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Burberry and Hachette Publishing, plus many more.

Discover! Creative Careers Week is an opportunity for your organisation to demonstrate the variety of roles and pathways available and ensure the future demands of our vibrant sector are met by a strong and diverse workforce. To take part, you simply need to welcome local students aged 11+ into your organisation for just one day within the week of 18th – 22nd November 2019.

We’ll support you as you plan your day with resources and one to one guidance and we’ll also link you up with a local school/college, via The Careers and Enterprise Company.

‘You all know about the huge challenges that the creative industries face. However, if we all do our bit then we can start to tackle those issues and one way to do this is by offering employer encounters’ Vikki Morton, Enterprise Coordinator, Northamptonshire
