Supplementary membership is our entry level membership that is design to help you develop your contacts and get offers of work to progress your career. It is only available to those who have fewer than three completed credits and you are only permitted to stay within supplementary membership for a maximum of three years.
For supplementary membership you will pick a department rather than a specific grade; you can chose to join either our accounting, production, locations, post or VFX supplementary groups.
Once you have completed three credits in your chosen path you will then be asked to upgrade to full membership.
Supplementary Membership criteria
In order to apply for supplementary membership you must have completed your first credit on a feature film and/or HETV drama. The credit should be on a complete production and in one of the grades we represent at full membership level. You should be able to demonstrate your interest and commitment to working in the chosen department.
Any training you have undertaken or work experience completed may also be taken into consideration by the membership committee in support of your application.
To submit a supplementary membership application you will need the support of a current PGGB member and at least one referee from your completed credit.
You will need to approach the PGGB Member in advance and they will need need to give you a short statement vouching for your character and recommending you for PGGB membership.
Your referee should be an individual you have directly worked for and can vouch for the quality and standard of your work in the area you are applying for. The reference will help the membership committee to determine whether your experience is suitable for supplementary membership.
We highly recommend that you speak to a member of the PGGB team before making an application.
Please note the £40 application fee is non-refundable
