Jobs of the future: the creative economy


Research we’ve done has found that 87% of
jobs that have a real creative element to them – now they could be in a traditional
utility or could be a kind of finance firm, they don’t have to be in a trendy creative
industry – but those creative jobs are much more protected from robotics, automation,
artificial intelligence; 87% of them will be protected in the future. So if you’re thinking about the future, the
future economy, future growth, think about creative economy, creative jobs and that might
mean being much better about arts, design, even traditional humanities around things
like publishing. These are really vital parts of the economy. If you have a breadth of knowledge and you
have done things that might seem quite obscure, maybe it’s in the humanities, maybe it’s part
of data science and the social sciences, but you are open to different approaches and you’re
good at collaborating with colleagues. The jobs of the future will be around that. So you got to be, you know, good at working
together, transferable skills so you’re not just about a very narrow technical thing,
but really have that intellectual breadth.
