Mabz's Talent Match Story

Mabz was referred to Talent Match after being NEET (not in employment, education or training) since finishing a Level 3 Creative Media Film and TV course at Barnsley College, but was keen to gain new experiences and network with local groups to broaden his chances of gaining work in acting and film making.

Our Talent Match Coach in Barnsley has been working with Mabz since February 2016 and in the past seven months Mabz has been extremely proactive in finding opportunities for work. As he is interested in anything media, his coach introduced him to an acting class which incorporated an agency close to his home in Barnsley. This has opened up many opportunities and in the past few months Mabz has been lucky enough to be an extra on Emmerdale and even star in a film written by and starring Paddy Considine, Journeyman. Talent personified!

In addition, Mabz has a real passion for LGBT issues, he is transgender himself, and so he is currently working with Talent Match to build better links with an organisation that promotes LGBT awareness.

Most recently Mabz was offered an exciting opportunity to film a Talent Match celebration event in Sheffield, which has now led to a paid work placement with Sheffield Hallam University. What a success so far, and we’re sure there will be more to come from this talent!
