THIS IS IT! was exactly what I needed. It left my mind whizzing with ideas. I don’t know what the future holds but I will keep working and keep climbing the ladder.”
The Creative Society is an arts employment charity that helps young people into jobs in the creative and cultural industries.
In December 2012 The Creative Society launched an exciting new project with Haringey Council. We worked with the Haringey Jobs Fund to subsidise the creation of 50 new jobs in the arts – by up to 50%. Through funding from Haringey Council, The Creative Society offered £3,000 to employers in the arts to subsidise the wage costs of an 6 month entry-level job created within their organisation. Each job was open only to residents of Haringey were are currently unemployed.
We subsequently worked with employers to partner with us in 2013 to create jobs, benefiting from the subsidy of wage costs, and helping address high unemployment in the borough of Haringey.
Employees were contraced for at least 6 months, at a minimum of 25 hours per week. The Creative Society subsidised all kinds of entry-level creative jobs that employers needed to grow – from Junior Graphic Designers and Assistant Producers to Trainee Set Designers and Digital Communications Assistants, all requested job descriptions were considered.
