“Hounslow has the HIGHEST concentration of Media and Broadcasting jobs in London”
This sector is all about spreading the word, telling stories and entertaining. The media industry is extremely varied and includes jobs in animation, computer games, corporate and commercials, facilities, film, comedy writing, interactive media, photo imaging, radio and TV
While a large number of the jobs in Hounslow relate to the presence of Sky, this remains a significant finding considering the policy focus being placed on east London in terms of the growth of tech and media sectors.
Local strengths include:
- TV Triangle – a regionally significant media and broadcasting cluster
- Technology – the online presence of the media sector promotes a large freelance workforce who work from home
- Production & Broadcasting – an employment concentration 5.3 times the London average
