Hello Everyone.

My name is Jo Ahmet and I am the new owner of the Signature Model and Acting Agency. My sole intention is to enhance the profile of our company by providing as many opportunities as possible to all the children on our books. The team at Signature are dedicated to building long term relationships with both children, parents and clients. This will ultimately, enable us to have a personal and friendly approach.

On 1st July 2016, the Signature Model & Acting Agency had changed hands and is now under new management. The new team at Signature will be incorporating new systems that will enable full interaction with the children, parents and clients. Some of the new features of the company include;

  • We are aligning ourselves to ensure that Signature conforms to the the British Fashion Council to support model agencies in delivering world class partnerships for the UK.
  • New management team including Commercial Dept, Bookers, Accounts Team, Media Specialists and Technical Staff
  • Brand new ‘secure’ website that will include informative information for clients and parents
  • New online model profile page with full parent login access, showcasing Photos and Videos
  • Online calendar to allow parents to inform us of any unavailability dates
  • Secure client access portal to enable our clients to view and search available children
  • Super-fast submission process to book children for castings and jobs
  • New system for invoicing and payments
  • Special workshop days covering casting techniques and confidence building with qualified professionals in the industry. Signature staff will be present on these days.
  • Discounted photographic days for updates with renowned photographer in this industry. This will also offer us the opportunity to meet our existing children and parents. We want to enhance our profile even further and become an elite agency providing high quality models and actors to our industry. In-order to achieve this with our clients, it is imperative that we upgrade to a Sole Agency Status. This will then allow us to;
  • Take a personal approach when working with our children and parents.
  • Enhance the profile of our children, by avoiding the confusion of multiple agencies. This is the preferred option for our clients and avoids clashes with other agencies.
  • Enable us to personalise our approach to offer more opportunities for our children. To achieve this we will personally meet successful new applicants, to ensure we can confidently promote them into the most appropriate jobs.
  • Enhanced licence application process- We can provide the relevant information on behalf of the parent, covering the legal requirement to list all previous jobs in the last 12 months. This can only be efficiently achieved as a sole agent.

We will continue to support existing models and actors under the previous agreement. However, as part of our overall strategy, we will require all models to agree to our new contract terms which will be sent out in the coming weeks. We will honour all non-sole models and actors for a period of 6 months, after which time, we will be strictly sole agents. We look forward to meeting and getting to know the children and parents during the various sessions we will be putting together.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your commitment to Signature and to this vibrant and exciting world of modelling and acting.
