We are passionate about diversifying and addressing under representation in the creative industries.
A New Direction delivers training, mentoring, career support and advice, events and networking opportunities for diverse and talented young creatives in London – connecting them to the best employers and opportunities in the cultural, creative and digital industries.
Our other programmes include:Creativity Works and Moving On Up. We are also a certified Kickstart gateway, working with employers from across the creative, cultural and digital industries committed to fair pay and inclusive working cultures. We also run Create Jobs – our online platform for connecting our pool of alumni with peers, partners and opportunities.
Since 2011, A New Direction has delivered its Employment and Skills programme under the name 'Create Jobs', this is probably how you know us. However, from January 2022 we will no longer be using the Create Jobs name or logo in this way.
Instead, we will simply use 'A New Direction' when we talk about our organisation and team, and our 'Employment & Skills programme' when we talk about the work.
What next for the Create Jobs brand?
The Create Jobs brand itself will continue in a new way online, becoming our exciting new online platform for networking members of our alumni with opportunities, employers and their peers.
Create Jobs is our online platform for networking members of our alumni with opportunities, employers and their peers.
Job roles, opportunities, inspiring seminars and networking events are profiled on the platform and shared across our social media channels. Through the platform, alumni and employers can access our team for advice and guidance – from CV writing to recruitment practice.
