star this property answer text <p>My department has this year undertaken a review of the Creative Industry Council’s membership. That review resulted in several new appointments which ensure that all creative industries are adequately represented. Under the new Terms of Reference, all members are appointed for (renewable) three year terms, providing the basis for ongoing review. By design the CIC is made up of leading figureheads of industry, who are able to drive industry lead approaches to the issues discussed in the meetings. They are experts in their field who are well able to champion their respective workforces.</p><p> </p><p>The review also took into account the need to ensure that the diversity of the creative industries workforce was represented on the council. There is also a subgroup which specifically looks at diversity within the sector.</p> more like this

Employment Status is not a choice but depends on the facts of the engagement. Given that most actors and performers are self-employed and unaffected by off-payroll rules (often known as IR35), they will not be affected by off-payroll reform in 2020 and do not pay Class 1 National Insurance.
