We check out some publishing, media and creative arts jobs in Belfast

Despite the fact that the British economy finally looks like turning itself around at long last, Northern Ireland is still finding itself to be struggling quite a bit on the employment front. There are jobs available, but they're few and far between, and any kind of specialist vacancy usually attracts a huge amount of competition. If you are planning on searching for publishing, media or creative arts jobs in Belfast then there are a few things that you should know in advance.

Firstly, the publishing industry is really struggling at the moment. Without the advertising dollars that used to accompany it, things are getting very tight for a large number of publishing companies. Even smaller, independent publications are struggling to make ends meet despite much lower overheads.

With things looking so bleak, it's probably fair to question where exactly you're going to find your next publishing, media or creative arts job, but fear not, because we are here to help.

Unlike many other industries, it's much easier to get yourself freelance work in the design industry. Once you have an excellent portfolio and can demonstrate that you are not only a talented designer, but also a versatile one who can work under tight restraints as well as when given carte blanche, you stand as good a chance of finding work as any.

With times being so hard in Northern Ireland though, it's impossible for us to recommend an individual employer that you should focus on, or even a particular area of Belfast where you have the best chance of finding work. Instead, we recommend that you keep a close eye on nijobs.com and jobs.ac.uk for the latest design listings.

As soon as you find anything, be sure to get your application in right away, as you don't want to miss out on a great opportunity to showcase your work to the world.
