Creative Connect 

1:1 support to guide your career

Through Creative Connect, you can access industry-specific career coaching personalised to you, to support you in your professional journey into working in the creative, cultural, or digital sectors.

Held either online or in-person to suit what works for you, these sessions support you in any of the creative jobs or opportunities you're looking to apply for. This includes feedback on CVs, cover letters, and application forms, as well as pre-interview assessments – all designed to make sure you put your best foot forward as you step into your desired creative role.

As part of the Creative Connect service, we also offer feedback on your existing work or portfolios (un-related to a specific job you might have in mind), and help you navigate the job market by carefully guiding you towards new job opportunities that match your skills, learning goals, and creative career aspirations.

Creative Connect is delivered via 1:1 calls and is supplemented with small group sessions with up to six other people. Whether you know what you’d like to explore next or are unsure of your options, the Creative Connect service is a useful resource for all young people at any stage of their career.
