Top jobs in the digital media sector

Digital media jobs

Digital media encompasses a huge range of fields in the creative industries including multimedia, animation, audio and video production, virtual reality, web design, graphic design, and content writing and publishing – to name a few. Depending on your role, you could be publishing blog posts, filming and editing videos, developing infographics, recording podcasts, or producing graphics for a new website you’ve designed.

Creative roles aren’t just found in advertising and creative agencies. Almost half of people employed in creative jobs work within non-creative industries (such as business, healthcare, financial services, and government departments). These are often referred to as ‘embedded’ creative roles, and these types of jobs are on the rise. As more businesses bring digital and design functions in-house, more opportunities are being created for people with these skills.

Below are just some of the jobs people you can find in the digital media sector:

  • Content creator
  • Digital content producer
  • Social media manager
  • Video editor
  • Animator
  • Art director
  • Digital graphic artist
  • Multimedia designer
  • Advertising manager
  • Art director
  • PR manager
  • Community engagement officer

As the digital media landscape continues to evolve, staying on top of digital trends and new tools, such as the Adobe Creative Cloud suite, is essential to a successful career.
