We know that the most innovative work happens in teams that are inclusive to talented people from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Creative Workforce for the Future’s mission is to make the creative industries as representative as the society in which we live.

We aim to do this by creating and fostering inclusive work environments to support our brightest and best young creative talent in the cultural and creative industries. 

Based in the West of England, Creative Workforce for the Future is offering a flexible and bespoke programme of professional development for companies and paid placements for young people.

Host creative talent (funded)

Through working with a range of small to medium (SME) sized creative companies in the West of England on inclusion readiness. The funded paid placement strand of this programme is now closed.

We’re delighted that all the Creative Professionals in the 2020 cohort are now on autumn industry placements in companies who are actively embracing inclusion and changing their work cultures with support from the programme.

Where to start?

“Leaders and managers are caught in a difficult and rather binary situation where there is a perceived but unarticulated ‘right and wrong’ that is difficult to get one’s head around.”
