Coronavirus and employment

Advice on employment, benefits and finances to support young creatives through Coronavirus

We know that this is an uncertain time for everyone, so we wanted to get together as much information as we could to help young creatives, freelancers and other people looking for information on employment.

At Create Jobs, we believe we all contribute to something greater than a programme or an office, we contribute and co-exist in a community. We want to make sure throughout the coming months our community stays connected, informed and supported. We are already finding new and creative ways to continue to stay connected and able to support each other and can’t wait to share these with you.

Things are moving very fast and whilst we aim to have the most relevant information here, we advise you to check for the most up to date guidance.
