How to Apply

If you are a trained, experienced actor and you wish to apply to join Direct Personal Management then please email your CV and photograph with a covering letter, including your Spotlight view pin, telling us about yourself and outlining your reasons for wishing to join to office@directpm.co.uk

We then look forward to inviting you to interview and will ask a series of questions listed below.

EXPERIENCE & BACKGROUND

To help us to gain as complete a picture of you as possible please describe your professional career to date including details about any professional acting work that you have done in the recent past.

HAVE YOU HAD ANY TRAINING?

If you went to drama school or have undertaken any professional training how do you think it has benefited you? If you haven’t had any formal training what effect, if any, do you think this may have had on your career to date?

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Direct Personal Management is a co-operative agency. Please tell us your understanding of what a co-operative agency is and how it may work and how do you think being a member of a co-op such as DPM will help you as an actor?

YOUR ASPIRATIONS FOR YOUR FUTURE?

How would you like to see your career developing in the future?

DESCRIBE YOUR SKILLS & PERSONAL QUALITIES

Why have you applied to join Direct Personal Management? What skills and personal qualities do you have that you can bring to the agency?

FINANCIALS

The law ( Department of Trade and Industry) states that agents cannot insist on collecting commission from actors for work that they find for themselves. However, DPM has a goodwill agreement with its members that commission will be paid on ALL acting jobs. This is to ensure the agency remains financially healthy and that each actor’s professional interests are protected. How do you feel about the policy adopted by DPM in terms of your own potential membership?

REPRESENTATION

Also under DTI regulations, agents cannot insist on being sole agents. Do you have or do you intend to have another agent representing you?

TELL US AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOU

Finally, would you like to tell us about any aspect of your life and interests that may be useful or relevant for us to know?
