What does Spotlight membership give me?

Your Spotlight Web Page

Spotlight Web Page

Your full professional CV plus photo(s) on, where they can be viewed instantly by casting professionals. Your casting details are fully searchable, so, for example, a casting director can look for 'an actor, with a playing age of 35-40, who has dark brown hair and a native Liverpool accent'. You or your agent can access and update your CV as often as you wish, and add extra photos, a showreel and /or voice-clips.

In 2010, there were over one million performer searches on the Spotlight website.

The Spotlight Link is the UK's leading job information service for performers.

In a typical week, casting professionals send over 200 breakdowns and cast over 500 roles using the Spotlight Link. You - and your agent, if you have one - can get job alerts by e-mail, and submit your Spotlight web CV instantly.
