What is it like to work in a Media, Design or Creative job?

Jobs in Media, Design, and the Creative Industry in general are often set in a fast-paced environment full of ideas and opportunities. The sector spans both in-house creative teams, and for a large part, creative agencies that may specialise in Branding, Design, Motion Graphics, Videography, Web Development, or a mix of disciplines.

While there is a common perception that a creative career is a low-paid one, there is plenty of opportunity to work on corporate projects that pay well, lead to an established career, and create opportunities to gain recognition of your work through press and awards too.

The traditional route into a Media job is through a bachelor’s degree in communications, marketing, public relations or journalism, however many start in entry-level positions and work their way up.

Training and workplace qualifications are also valued on a C.V., as well as any other relevant skills such as proficiency working in multiple Adobe programs.

In certain, larger creative businesses, apprenticeships are also available, where you can train on the job, get to work on real projects, and be paid for your time.
