The Creative Industries Federation and Creative England have joined forces, recognising that we will be able to make a greater difference together than would be possible alone. Our overarching mission is to use the UK’s creativity to build a more prosperous, inclusive society and help drive the nation’s sustainable growth. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills.


Creative England and the Creative Industries Federation joined forces in 2020 and are now part of the Creative UK group. We are a creative, connected, forward thinking and transformational community. We aim to grow the creative economy and to use creativity to build a more prosperous, inclusive society. We believe we can make a greater difference together than would be possible alone.

In building an open, diverse and inclusive business we need to bring fresh insight, energy and lived experience to our Board. We are recruiting two new Board members between the ages of 18-25 to represent the voice of young people. These new Board members will be passionate about supporting the creative industries to thrive and grow and will help us to understand what really matters to young people in the industry.

Board members will provide direction and challenge to the leadership team and will play a major part in boosting the creative industries, one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK.

Our Board meets at least four times per year, with some additional time required to review papers. The appointment will be for a term of 1 year, with the option to renew for a second term.

Creative UK’s current Board of Directors is an extraordinary mix of talent from across the creative industries. As a Board member you will have knowledge and personal experience of the creative sector. This could be as a student, creative practitioner or as a creative entrepreneur. You will be paired with an existing board member as a mentor for the duration of your term to support you in your work.
