  • 11,600 businesses (increase from 9,800 in 2007) Factors include reclassification of Standard Industry Classification codes. Largest Creative Media sector in Scotland, England & London 27% London 19% South East 11% East 9% South West 88% <50 employees
  • 26% Newspapers 24% Journals & Periodicals 21% Other Publishing Companies 18% Books
  • The number of people employed by the industry has shrunk by about 15% in the last 3 years. From 209k to 178k Books has dropped from >35k to about 31k Newspapers have dropped by a whopping 15,600 – or 25% - from 62.5k to c. 47k Modest growth in journals and periodicals – up from 41k to 43.6k
  • The industry continues to dominate in London and the South East – those two areas alone accounting for 49% of the workforce. But still sizeable in terms of the number of people employed elsewhere compared to other parts of Creative Media. Broadly the same across all nations/regions except: London up 6% from 30%; South East down from 18%
  • Decrease from 2007 of 4% Most pronounced in News Agencies, but due to reclassification of companies to other new categories.
  • We have an ageing workforce. Increases in 40-49 and 50+ age groups Result of recession and recruitment freeze Need to explore further underlying structural changes
  • 1% fewer women in the workforce 1% fewer people from Minority Ethnic groups Same number of people with a disability Taking into account that 36% of the workforce are based in London And representation from BAME groups was at 27% in 2007 The underlying trend is even more unsettling.
  • 2010: 37% recruited from HE in the last year
  • 2 nd column drawn from the report: ‘From Recession to Recovery’ (2009)
