Opportunities Policy

Our Opportunities board is largely limited to student and micro budget films, as well as fringe theatre. As per both legislation and Equity guidelines, we do not post unpaid commercials, corporate or promotional productions.

Please ensure you include enough details on your project and about your production company (without any contacts, as these will be removed) in your job post.

Please keep in mind that our website is for professionals, and we need to guarantee that any Opportunities are chances for our members to advance their careers.

Not inputting these details will delay your job post being live on the site.

Across Mandy, we do not list 

  • unpaid productions that are for the Employer’s commercial gain
  • unpaid TIE/TYA
  • unpaid reality TV
  • unpaid corporate work
  • unpaid music videos for established artists
  • unpaid (radio) commercials
  • unpaid private showcases
  • unpaid fundraising / crowdfunding events / trailers
  • unpaid research and development
  • unpaid work that demand specialist equipment or materials, without a kit fee

Mandy Actors UK

In line with National Minimum Wage legislation we only post a job as paid if the guaranteed fee throughout the production dates is at least £65 per day. This includes any rehearsals, shooting or performance days, as well as any other commitment required from the actors.

We do not list Amateur Dramatics on Mandy Actors

For Opportunities, we require that candidates receive at the least travel expenses for each day of both rehearsal and performance required.

Please state what you are able to offer in the “salary field”; this may include:

  • Food expenses or meals provided
  • A copy of the finished project
  • Complimentary tickets to the production for industry peers.
  • Profit share

Mandy Talent UK

We will no longer post the following in the Opportunities (non-paying) section:

  • Audience Castings
  • Game Shows & Quizzes
  • Competitions

Mandy Kids UK

Following from discussions with Equity and parents/guardians on Mandy Kids, we do not post any unpaid or low paid projects, and would require any projects casting actors under the age of 18 to guarantee to meet our minimum daily rate of at least £65 + expenses, per day. This includes any rehearsals, shooting or performance days, as well as any other commitment required from the actors. 

The expenses are there to take into consideration the travel required of the chaperone for the Child Actor. 

It is your responsibility as an Employer to ensure you have the correct licenses in place when hiring a Child Actor, as detailed on the Gov.UK website
