As a creative employer, we are interested in the impact we can have on the community around us. We believe that cultural and creative organisations can stimulate opportunities for workplace encounters for people of all ages, and through many routes including but not limited to engagement in our programmes (such as Young Creatives), volunteering, work experience and Open Doors, apprenticeships and employment. Our aim is to highlight, and where possible create opportunities.

A key way we have been doing this is through the community-led Bexhill Jobs & Apprenticeships Fair,  where there is the opportunity to engage with a wide range of employers from our region who are offering live jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities. The event happens annually each spring.

We are also proud to be partners of South East Creatives, providing exciting programmes of keynote speakers, and practical business support for creative start-ups.

We are a Cornerstone Employer and participate in the Open Doors project.
