Information for applicants
The Actors Group is currently welcoming new applicants. We are particularly interested in hearing from male actors. As a TAG member, you would be required to commit to a minimum of two or three days in the office every two months acting as agent on behalf of the membership. We would provide you with full training before expecting you to assume responsibility in the office. Attendance is also required, (when not working or on holiday), at fixed date membership meetings (usually held on a Sunday every six weeks, but longer in the Summer) and members are also encouraged to watch other members in performance.
The current standard rate of commission is 12% with discounted rate of 6% for low pay jobs. All members are expected to be in Spotlight, or to subscribe on joining.
In order to apply you must do so in writing. We will happily receive postal or email applications. Please send a covering letter highlighting your reasons for applying to TAG, together with an up to date CV and headshot. You cannot be considered for membership until at least two of our members have seen your work. We therefore suggest that you write to us when you are in a live production playing in the north-west or send us a recent showreel of your film work. If we decide to take your application further, we will invite you to attend an interview with the membership.
"Being a member of TAG and has given me an invaluable insight into the industry, as well as a great support network from my fellow actors" Jenny May Morgan, TAG member
*Please note we do NOT charge a joining fee.
