Mark Jermin Management was established following the phenomenal success of the Mark Jermin Stage School and as a result of Mark’s personal determination to offer professional management to young and emerging British talent.
From the age of 15 Mark was running a theatre group in his home town, passing on his knowledge and theatre skills to a small group of talented, local youngsters. Following several years of teaching at a leading London Theatre School, where he also played a driving role in the school’s management agency, Mark moved back home to grow and develop his stage schools across the UK and to launch his own talent management agency. Mark’s skills as a qualified drama and theatre school teacher along with his professionalism and experience as a management agent, gives him a unique insight and understanding of the requirements of casting directors across all performance disciplines.
Since the official opening of Mark Jermin Management in January 2007, the business has grown rapidly with artists being avidly sought by casting directors all over the country.
Due to the expansion and continued growth of the Agency, the team has increased to include Nicola Hughes, Liz Stretton, Charlotte Robb and Kelly Smith who provide additional support to the growing number of young actors whom they now represent. In addition to this the agency has a separate accounts team who deal solely with finance. In April 2010 Mark Jermin Management opened their London office with a view to build on the existing respected reputation of the agency as well as developing clients’ careers and pushing the company in a new and exciting direction.
The team works from a shared office on the fourth floor of Mark’s prestigious Swansea City Centre home, as well as the newly established London office situated in the very much sought after area of Chiswick, West London. Mark divides his time between both offices. The team stays in touch constantly by telephone and email, conveniently using one address and number for both offices, meaning that clients and industry professionals can get in touch with who they need to easily. This practical set up means that each member of the team is always aware of what is going on at any time, making communication with production companies, casting directors and actors very easy. In addition, casting directors looking for Wales based artists who are travelling from outside the area have the opportunity and convenience of staying at the agency premises where they are also able to hold casting sessions.
What’s more, Mark Jermin Management can provide additional support to younger performers working away from home through a team of experienced and CRB checked chaperones.
The convenient link to the stage school as well as other local and national companies means that Mark Jermin Management has access to facilities to hold auditions and workshops for any small or large production. This is often a more productive and valuable way of casting as Mark can lead the workshop and the casting professional is able to enjoy the benefit of seeing the actors in a creative environment where they are comfortable and confident enough to explore and demonstrate their talent.
Workshop facilities are available in Swansea, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Bristol as well as many other areas, please contact the agency to find out more....
