A new report claims the Entertainment Industry jobs are being “re-shuffled” across the country and the “entertainer community” is being “freed from its long-held obligations to entertainers.”
The Entertainment Industry Jobs Report, a joint initiative by the Entertainment and Arts Alliance (EAA) and the Media and Entertainment Industry Association (MEIA), shows that there were 4,000 jobs lost in the industry between June and September.
The EAA report said that the number of job losses were down by 30 per cent, or 1,700.
This was down to 8,000 in the three months to September.
It said the industry lost about 1,400 positions between the first quarter of 2017 and September this year.
While it is important to note that the report does not give an exact figure, it suggests that the numbers may be much lower than that.
In fact, the EAA has previously reported that the entertainment industry lost 3,000 job during the same period, and it was in fact down by around 2,000.
However, it has recently published a report that claimed that the Entertainment industry lost 1,500 jobs during the first six months of this year, but also found that the EAAA has since found that some of those were “lost due to automation” as a result of “the industry’s transition from a digital era to a digital economy”.
“The industry is being re-shuffed across the nation, the Entertainment Community is being freed from its lengthy obligations to its members and the entire entertainment industry is struggling to adjust to the changing digital landscape,” the report said.
The report said the loss of jobs in the entertainment industries “reflects the industry’s changing economic, political and cultural climate, which has created challenges to the delivery of entertainment.”
“This has impacted the delivery and performance of entertainment across Australia.
The industry is working hard to provide high quality content, and to create jobs in all parts of the industry,” it said.”
However, these are only the first steps and the industry must now address its wider challenges.””
There is still much to be done to rebuild and grow the entertainment sector, and more is needed to build an industry that is capable of meeting the needs of the 21st century economy.”
The report also said that there had been “significant disruption in the delivery, performance and retention of the content industry, and the impact this has had on the growth and profitability of the sector”.
The report noted that the job losses in the media and entertainment industries have been “substantial”, with more than 50,000 media jobs lost between December 2017 and March 2018.
The employment report said there were 1,900 media jobs in 2017 and 1,100 in 2018.
There were more than 40,000 television jobs lost during the period between November 2017 and June 2018.
Meanwhile, there were more job losses for the entertainment and film industries.
The entertainment industry employs more than 4 million people, and employs over 11 million people across Australia as of March 2018, according to the EDA.
The Entertainment and Film Industry Association of Australia (EFA) said in a statement that the media sector’s “tremendous growth has been driven by the rise in digital, digital-native and connected services”.
“There are still many sectors, such as film and television, that are still growing and expanding, but we believe the current trends are unsustainable and will have a material impact on the industry in the medium to long-term,” the association said.
