Would you like a fun, rewarding career?

If the answer to these questions is yes, a career in creative industries could be for you.

There many different sectors within the industry from advertising, architecture and design to TV & radio, music, visual & performing arts.

Suffolk has been welcoming a rich ensemble of high-profile companies in the creative sector; spanning from computer gaming, fine art, music, film, dance, animation and fashion. The largest employers in the county are software designers and advertising businesses but Suffolk is fast becoming renowned for its calendar of world class cultural events including Aldeburgh Festival, FlipSide, Pulse Festival, High Tide, the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival and of course Latitude.
