Creative and tech careers

Ahead of Apple moving its London HQ into Battersea Power Station, Battersea and Nine Elms is one area which is well-positioned for London’s growing creative and tech industry – providing a great opportunity for young people.

Wandsworth Council has teamed up with Stride to launch a Talent Development Programme for up-and-coming entrepreneurs or young people interested in creative and tech careers.

Whether you’re interested in web development, marketing, tech eco system/design, filmmaking or becoming an art director or copy writer, there are opportunities available as apprenticeships, internships, paid work experience or training.
