The partners behind Real Creative Futures are sponsoring a creative industries jobs page in local publication LeftLion, offering free advertising space for local creative and arts related job vacancies.

This collaboration aims to directly benefit small to medium sized businesses in Nottingham by offering them support with their recruitment process. The page will also offer local creative practitioners a first port of call for job listings and support the growing creative community in the city.

Ash Dilks expressed how the team at the publication feel about the new step they’re taking to work with Real Creative Futures “LeftLion has always contributed to and supported the Nottingham creative community and businesses that make our city such a vibrant, fun and unique place to live and hang out. The new jobs section within the magazine will help connect the right people together and it’s just one of the new developments as part of our project to take LeftLion magazine monthly from October.”

Kate Lockhart, Head of Creative Business Support at New Art Exchange, knows this opportunity will benefit the local creative industries and assist in sector development across Nottingham. “If you’re thinking about recruiting in this sector, this page is definitely the place to do it. Through the Real Creative Futures programme we know we’re making a difference to the way creative companies operate and helping them to grow, this page provides them with direct recruitment support.”

If you are a creative business and would like to recruit via the Real Creative Futures jobs page please enter the job details here by 18th September to feature on the October edition or contact to find out more about submitting your job advert and the business support programme available in Nottingham. The jobs page will feature in alternate LeftLion editions from October onwards.
