How we help Creative Job Studio "This is exactly what is needed for new people trying to get into the industry." - Creative Job Studio participant Creative Job Studio is a new model for supporting young people from diverse backgrounds to meet employers, chat about skills development and network with other creatives. From friendly drop-ins and careers days, to a programme of open discussions and events to showcase work, it provides a fresh platform for unheard voices and opens the door to hidden talents. 'The Creative Job Studio is the culmination of nearly 10 years of working with young people hoping to break into the creative industries. CJS turns the traditional model of the Jobcentre on its head and provides an inspirational space where creative people can meet employers, receive meaningful careers guidance, and showcase their creative talents.'
