Westminster Media Forum: The UK Creative Media Workforce

Pact’s Chief Executive John McVay will be speaking at this Westminster Media Forum event looking at the priorities for access, professional development and public policy in the UK’s creative media workforce.

Delegates will assess key issues in recruitment, training and retaining creative media talent across the UK and examine progress and latest thinking in addressing key barriers to entering the creative professions.

Further sessions will consider how best to meet the changing requirements of creative media businesses and maintain the sector’s global competitiveness - with particular reference to the increasing demand for digital and STEM skills, as well as the challenges for supplying the increasing demand for high-skilled professionals in light of the introduction of multiple tax relief schemes.

Discussion will be informed by the recently published DCMS report identifying current shortfalls in the representation of women in the creative workforce, and Creative Skillset’s 2014 Workforce Survey highlighting key issues in recruitment and training, and diversity in areas such as educational background and disability.

Other key speakers include Creative Skillset CEO, Dinah Caine, and Directors UK CEO, Andrew Chowns.
