Are you satisfied with the education that you received?

Coupled with the work experience they gain while employed as an apprentice, Creative Break provides a superb first step to a creative future and the training to build a career.
In which tasks are you good at, and in which could you better yourself?
A great administrator is an essential part of any creative team. Administrators not only do the routine, organisational things that creative types rarely do well, but they also help make a team run more effectively, enabling fee earners and marketing personnel to focus on generating additional income.
