NOISE Jobs is delivered in the spirit of “There won’t be any work left us unless we create it.” (Platform 8, 2010). We’re continuing the NOISEfestival.com charity ethos, to remove the barriers facing emerging creatives looking to take their talent to the next level. We want to help you to start getting vital experience and earning an income from your amazing talents.

Which is why we’ve included a whole range of positions to suit whatever stage you’re at in your career, whatever your availability, wherever you are.

How

By keeping your NOISE Portfolio up-to-date, you can create the wow-factor and stand out to potential employers or those looking for one-off, commissions. Remember, we’ve created a space in your Expertise tab for you to add recommendations from former employers /clients. It’s another great way to show-off your experience and ability to potential new bosses and co-workers.

If you see a position that tickles your fancy, you can apply for it right there and then via the simple NOISE application process. We can’t guarantee we’ll get each and every one of you a job, but we’ll give it proper, good go.

NOISE Jobs will be regularly reviewed and quality checked by the NOISE Team. Any positions that seem exploitative or just don’t seem right will be removed.

Why?

We know that the job market can be a tough little cookie to crack.
Especially with rising tuition fees, fewer university places, rising youth unemployment at 1 in 5 and a recession economy.

Often, pathways into the Creative Industries are not clear, particularly for those that do not have family support, access to existing networks or live beyond urban, industry hotspots. Without an influx of fresh minds and ideas the creative sector is in danger of becoming increasingly elitist and nepotistic. Increasingly, employees are looking for candidates who have experience beyond just a degree.

On the flipside, 85 per cent of businesses in the Creative Industries have fewer than five employees (NDoM 2010), it’s a sector made up predominantly by one-man bands. So, we want to guide emerging creatives into paths beyond the traditional ‘employee/employer’ relationships and inform you of the alternative routes to getting employment via freelancing or business start-up.

Additionally, with budgets being cut here there and everywhere, businesses are after, low-cost, swift recruitment options. Time equals money and all that. NOISE Jobs offers the perfect recruitment solution by offering a myriad of talent, where employers can see your expertise and creative genius right there and then via your NOISE Portfolio.

Beyond the Job Ads

NOISE Jobs also points you to some of the best resources from across the web that can guide and support your job search, from how to price yourself, shameless self-promotion techniques, to tickling up your CV and to advice on starting your own business or selling yourself as a creative freelancer.
Plus, if you have any killer job search tips or resource recommendations, you can submit them to help build the NOISE Creative Career Wikiversity.
This is just the start of the NOISE Jobs network. We’re really excited to see it grow into a supportive and vital bit of kit for helping to shape your creative career. You and the companies / industry professionals that contribute to NOISE Jobs are going to be key to building and shaping it into the  number one creative employment resource for both the creative industries and emerging, creative talent from across the UK.
