The creative & tech (CreaTech) industries are bigger than Aerospace, Oil & Gas and Automotive sectors combined. They offer a great career, there are are plenty of jobs, the demand will grow, and Bristol is a key centre in the UK.
But what role is right for you? What interests, ambitions and qualifications do you need? How do you get in, and what’s it like in the first years?
This session brings together experts – Gabby Shaw – principal recruiter, Digital & Technology Adlib, Oli Ward – co-founder of tech training company Develop_Me , Ellie Cottrell – Talent Acquisition Manager at digital agency Zone and Stuart Dyer – Operations Manager at Films@59. – with some of their new employees, to provide an insight into the growth areas, people skills and employment potential across the whole range of local industry, from Graphic Artists to CRM Campaign Managers.
We’ll use the jobs advertised on Bristol Media’s South West Creative Jobs website as the guide to de-mystify the roles (what actually is a “middleweight back-end developer?”), highlight the opportunities to aim for, and what your pathway might look like.
After each insight talk, there will be the opportunity for some 1:1 advice from the team at Adlib specific to your ambitions – whether they are in marketing, creative production, data or technology.
So, whether you want to work in the industry, train or advise young people on careers, or have skills you want to transfer, this session is for you!
Date & Time: Monday 26th November, 4.30pm – 6.30pm
Place: BBC Broadcasting House, Whiteladies Road, Bristol, BS8 2LR
Booking is via Eventbrite
