About Us

The leading professional body for talent agencies in the UK.

PMA membership comprises Agencies which represent Artists, Dramatists and Creatives.  Our current, membership stands at 200 agencies; an estimated 1000 agents; who between them represent approximately 50,000 artists, writers, directors and creatives working in screen, theatre and radio.

Members are bound by a code of good agent practice, with outlines conscientious regard for the professional welfare of clients; and commitment to industry-wide values of equality, diversity and inclusion, and anti-harassment.  The PMA network is run by its members, for its members – a structure that allows all voices to heard and collective decisions to be made.

The PMA was established in 1950, for: ‘The protection and promotion of the interests of its members variously operating in the [cultural industries] as personal managers … and of maintaining good and friendly relations with one another.’  The spirit of which remains true to this day and extends to many kindred, industry organisations with which we work.

 

How to Join the PMA

The overriding consideration for PMA membership status is that member agencies operate, always, with a conscientious regard for the professional welfare of their clients. This is reflected in our Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) and must be reflected in business practices of all membership agencies. Please also consider the values we hold important: we encourage active engagement with issues of Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity; and the PMA is a signatory to the BFI principles to tackle Harassment, Bullying and Racism.

STEP ONE – Register your interest online. You will need:

  • The names and email addresses of two PMA members willing to nominate your application;
  • To demonstrate that your agency has a minimum of two years experience.  Or, if your agency is new, that you have two years experience as an agent elsewhere.

When you are ready click ‘Register Your Interest” below, where you will asked to provide basic contact information for you, and your referees; and a little information about your agency.

STEP TWO – Provide evidence of good practice.

After registering you will receive an email requesting a copy of your Terms of Business (sometimes called “agency agreement”) and evidence that you hold a separate bank account for client monies.

We ask for TOBs in order to ensure there is no conflict with our Approved Code of Practice (ACOP).   If there is disparity between your TOBs and the PMA ACOP this will affect your application. Please consider the following:

  • Are your operating practices in line with the either the Conduct of Employment Agencies & Employment Business Regulations 2003 (Artists Agencies); or good agent practice as outlined in our code?
  • Does your agency provide its clients with a GDPR Privacy Notice document?
  • Do you operate a “notice period” in relation to termination of representation between the agency and its clients? Time restrictions, or notice periods, are not considered to be in the best interest of the client and therefore, should not be operated by PMA member agencies.

STEP THREE – Welcome to the PMA

  • Assuming the criteria above are met, we will be in contact about how to begin and make best use of your PMA membership.

Timeframe: We aim to process each application in around four – six weeks. Step 2 is often the point where applications falter or fail, so please do check the criteria before you send your Terms of Business.

Current Membership Fees (2022): Agencies with less than 5 employees: £  450 + vat; Agencies with 5-15 employees: £ 550 + vat;  Agencies with 16 plus employees: £1000 + vat.  Membership runs from January to December. And may be paid monthly, quarterly or in a single instalment.

If you have any questions about membership at any stage please email: info@thepma.com.

Berlin Associates Ltd

Team Assistant – Dramatists’ department

– Posted June 28th 2022

Berlin Associates is one of the UK’s best known boutique agencies for film, television and theatre. Based in our warehouse-style office off Bermondsey Street at London Bridge, we represent and manage a select list of prestigious and up-and-coming writers, directors, producers, designers, composers and below-the-line talent. Due to increasing demand, our vibrant and exciting dramatists’ department is looking for a confident and dedicated team assistant.

The Job:

Face of the agency… The role will involve answering the phone, greeting guests, running errands, fielding daily enquiries and generally acting as the face & voice of Berlin Associates to the outside world. This also means keeping our client bios and website up to date alongside being across our company socials. The selected applicant will be confident, well-presented and friendly.

The basics… This is an administrative role, supporting the day-to-day workload of the dramatists’ agents and our office manager. Our work revolves around the negotiation and implementation of client contracts, and so we require someone with an eye for detail to file and manage executed contracts and track payments and invoices. Another key aspect of this role will be supporting our agents in the exploitation of subsidiary rights, particularly across amateur and foreign theatre rights.

Creative… As the selected applicant will be supporting the dramatists’ department, an instinct and passion for reading scripts and working with writers is essential. Alongside reading client work and crafting feedback, you’ll be supporting our submissions team to service our open submission policy and help the agency find and take on new clients. This can involve representing the agency at screenings, showcases and plays.

Who we’re looking for… The only required qualifications are GCSEs (or equivalent) in English and Maths. Our clients’ work brings us into contact with a huge cross-section of the creative industries, in the UK and internationally, and as a result the role will require strong organisational and multi-tasking skills, the ability to prioritise and use initiative as well as presentation and customer-facing skills. We actively seek applicants from underrepresented groups and we are a committed equal opportunities employer.

Please email agents@berlinassociates.com if you wish to apply for this role. Please attach a CV and a covering letter including a paragraph or two on a film, play or television series that you have particularly enjoyed watching over the past year.

FAQs

The PMA is a membership organisation for Agents. Our advice and services are therefore focused for our member agents and agencies.  We are not set up to directly support queries from actors, writers and directors.  However, the most frequently asked questions are answered below.  PMA members, your questions may be answered more fully in the PMA Approved Code of Practice which you can download in the members area (see Documents/PMA Documents).

I need advice about a client leaving my agency or joining from another agency.

Please refer to the PMA Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) which can be downloaded in the Members Area (see Resources).

The PMA ACOP, For Artists’ Agents contains commission split guidance for Artists’ agents when a client moves from one agent to another, including the use of protected projects letters and any commission splits.  It also outlines our position on notice period.

The PMA does not currently provide commission split guidance for Dramatists, Directors or Creatives.

Finally remember that any conflict over a client’s terms of business with their previous agent is a legal matter between the artist and their previous agent.

 

 

NON-MEMBERS

I want to join the PMA but I don't know know any PMA members.

As a membership organisation references from two PMA members agencies is an essential part of your application. We do not accept references from other industry professionals.

I am setting up a new agency - do I have to be a PMA member?

No, you do not have to be a PMA member.   You have a legal requirement to be compliant with the Employment Agencies Act 2003.

The PMA is a membership organisation, not a regulatory body.  However if you are looking for good practice advice you might find it useful our Approved Code of Practice useful which you will find in the “Join Us” page of this website.

I am not a PMA member - can I place an advert on your website?

Sorry! Our Vacancies Board is a benefit for PMA member agencies only.  We do not post any adverts from non-members.

ARTISTS-WRITERS-DIRECTORS

I am looking for an agent. Can the PMA advise?

We do not offer advice about finding an agent.  An agent-client relationship is an important and personal relationship and we feel that requires direct research. Most agencies will tell you on their websites what they do, who they are looking for and how to approach them.    If you want to check whether an agency is a PMA member please see the list below.
