Why apply through Creative Access?

This is the place to start if you want to build a long-lasting career in the creative industry.

We’ll help you get your foot in the door and we’ll support you throughout your career because we believe the creative industry will be better with more people like you in it. We only work with people from under-represented backgrounds because our mission is to make sure the creative industry reflects our society. We work hard with hundreds of employer partners to make sure they are offering you the best opportunities to join their organisations.

When you apply for a role, we’ll help you with the process and then if you’re successful, you’ll join our large Creative Access Community and have access to training as part of the ENTRY LEVEL SUPPORT PROGRAMME. You’ll be invited to some incredible events and begin building your own personal network of peers.

Please note – we use the term ‘intern’ and ‘trainee’ interchangeably.
