Jobs and careers in Northern media
The North's media and creative sector is undeniably enjoying a boom. Whether it's the thriving digital and e-commerce sector, with the likes of The Hut Group, Sky Betting and Gaming and Boohoo, or the increased presence of the BBC at MediaCityUK and Channel 4 in Leeds, the North is an increasingly atractive place to be for those pursuing a creative career.
For this Prolific+ series, we take a deep dive into MediaCityUK and Leeds and consider just why they are now media powerhouses in the North. We also look at the emerging job roles in the sector, and speak to five female leaders about how more women can be encouraged to pursue a career in tech.
