The creative industries sector in Scotland supports over 60,000 jobs and contributes £5billion to our economy. We are dedicated to attracting, developing and retaining this talent, and helping individuals and companies reach their full economic potential.
We are part of Scotland’s Creative Industries Partnership which sees us work with the Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Skills Development Scotland, COSLA, Scottish Funding Council and Scottish Development International in supporting the creative industries in Scotland.
