We conducted research into the expectations and ambitions of over 800 young people looking to work in the creative industries post-pandemic – the first generation to do so. The research revealed:

- When looking at specific roles, the job description sounding inspiring and challenging is more important than salary
- 82% of respondents are expecting to be promoted within the first year of their first role
- Just a quarter are quite or very optimistic about finding a role post-education, with well over half (57%) who are not optimistic
