Do you want to be registered for work with
THE CASTING NETWORK from April 2015- 31 December 2016?

If you have previously attended a registration appointment in Wimbledon, then you were officially registered.

If you have ONLY completed an online application, even if you have received offers of work or have been availability-checked, you are still only at the applicant stage.

When we receive your application, you will be sent an email, detailing all the things we require you to do in order to fulfill the requirements to be considered for work through The Casting Network.

The Casting Network does not charge an administration fee, book fee or take an 'annual' fee from the payment for your first job of the year through the Agency. Only Commission and VAT are deducted. You are classed as Self Employed for Tax and National Insurance Contributions so please keep records of your earnings as we cannot supply copies or give you retrospective information.

1. We are not re-registering or taking on new applicants from the resource who applied for work in Swansea or Folkestone as we do not expect to have work in those areas this year or any NEW applicants who live more than 50 miles from Central London.

2. If you have been told that for any reason, you will not be offered any further work from the Agency, we cannot re register you either.

THIS YEAR, WE ARE NOT HOLDING FORMAL REGISTRATION APPOINTMENTS WHERE WE ASK YOU TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO MEET THE CASTING DEPARTMENT.

    PAYMENT QUERIES

    All payment enquiries MUST be put in writing and sent via email to info@thecastingnetwork.co.uk.
    Don't miss out the word 'the' and please write 'Payment query' in the subject box.

    Too many people continue to phone up and verbally launch into their payment enquiry, when such matters should be detailed in writing which allows them to be dealt with efficiently and thoroughly.
    PLEASE NOTE: Payments usually take from 6-12 weeks from the date you work to the date you receive your fees by direct payment into your bank account.
    Please do not contact the agency regarding late payment until 12 weeks have elapsed from the date you worked.

    In addition, please ensure we always have your corrrect mobile telephone number, to which we can text you about your availability for work.
