Amplify Your Business at the Creative Industry Career Fair

If you are in the market for a creative professional, you know how challenging it can be to find and hire the right talent for your business. You need people who are not only skilled and experienced but also passionate and innovative. You need people who can help you grow your brand, reach new markets, and create value for your customers.

The answer is simple: attend the Creative Industry Career Fair!

But where can you find such people? How can you connect with them and convince them to join your team? How can you keep up with the fast-changing trends and demands of the creative industry?

The journey towards formalising activities in the creative industry will require a collective effort from all stakeholders within the sector. This would eventually lead to more creative talents entering the formal work environment, making it easier for employers and candidates to connect seamlessly. This is where the Creative Industry Career Fair comes in.

The Creative Industry Career Fair is a unique event that brings together employers and job seekers from various creative industry sectors, such as photography, fashion, art, advertising, content creation, public relations, and marketing. It is an opportunity for you to showcase your business, products, and services and discover and recruit the best talent for your organisation.

Jobberman Nigeria, the Mastercard Foundation, and Obsidian have come together to organise the Creative Industry Career Fair. The event will take place on September 16th, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Landmark Event Center in Victoria Island, Lagos. The event will feature:

  • A Keynote Speech by a renowned expert in the creative industry
  • A Fashion Education Summit that will provide insights into available fashion education certifications within Africa and beyond
  • Workshops that will focus on capacity development topics such as professional advancement, soft skills, work ethics, and corporate mindset for creatives
  • A Job Fair that will give you access to a vast database of 1,500 candidates spanning various creative industries
  • A Panel Session that will discuss the challenges and opportunities in the creative industry

By attending the Creative Industry Career Fair, you will be able to:

Gain exposure and visibility for your business among potential customers, partners, and investors

  • Meet and interact with talented and passionate people who are looking for opportunities in the creative industry.
  • Hire qualified and motivated candidates who can add value to your business.
  • Learn from experts and peers about the latest trends and innovations in the creative industry.
  • Network with other professionals and stakeholders in the field

Nigeria’s creative sector is arguably the second largest employer of labour. The industry employs more than 4 million people based on aggregated data from various sources. At the same time, our estimates suggest that the sector can potentially create 2.7 million jobs in the next 5 years. However, this will depend on multiple factors, including an enabling environment, investments in skills and necessary infrastructure.

The Creative Industry Career Fair will facilitate linkages between creative industry employers (businesses, recruiters, educators, talent scouters) and potential employees (professionals, job seekers, enthusiasts, and artisans) to facilitate job opportunities and capacity development.
