Bracknell, United Kingdom, (2nd December, 2011) – Bubble Jobs, a niche job board serving the digital, media and creative industries continues to see a rise in new job opportunities in these sectors. With recent news coverage suggesting unemployment figures are set to rise further in the first part of next year, Bubble believes that there are still pockets of opportunity in niche high-growth areas.
A spokesperson for the company commented: “Whilst we recognise that there are many industry sectors experiencing a decline in employment opportunities, we are continuing to see healthy growth in the number of jobs being advertised within the digital, media and creative markets”. He went on to say that “a significant proportion of job vacancies being advertised are entry-level positions which are ideally suited to graduates and young people looking to establish their careers.”
The prospects for growth in the digital, media and creative industries in the UK look promising. The government-backed Tech City initiative is aiming to establish London as the ‘Digital Capital of Europe’. From the original ‘Silicon Roundabout’, extending through Shoreditch, Old Street and onwards to the Olympic Park, Tech City has seen over 500 technology start-ups establish themselves. And it’s not exclusive to innovative technology start-ups: Google recognises the potential of UK digital talent and, in response, is building a seven storey start-up and developer hub right in the middle of it all.
The growth is not limited to the South either. MediaCityUK in Salford Quays, Manchester, is the new home to the BBC and they will be closely followed by ITV and a host of other media and creative brands, meaning that the North West is rapidly becoming a hot bed of digital talent.
Bubble Jobs’ spokesperson commented, “The investment into developing hubs such as Tech City and MediaCityUK shows that the UK can be a real competitor and leader in the digital, media and creative industries. The next wave of big global technology firms might not come out of Silicon Valley but right here in this country.”
Bubble Jobs believes now is the right time for people to explore the new job opportunities that exist. Indeed, Bubble Jobs itself is also growing and expanding with new improvements, features and services planned for the New Year, which will bring significant benefits for both job seekers and employers.
