Project Main Details
Interested talents should send a recording of the script below. We are looking for someone with a neutral British accent.
The fee is £250. If the script changes substantially again after that point we would require one free retake included within the overall fee. If we require more than one retake involving substantial changes we will pay £50 per retake. The retakes I am referring to are regarding changes in the script not retakes on account of getting the intonation correct, which should carry no extra charge.
We're looking for someone whose voice, and this cannot be highlighted enough, sounds like they actually understand what they're reading. Phrases have been capitalised for emphasis but obviously the emphasis should be gentler than the capitalisation might suggest.
Ideally the whole text should be recorded for the pitch and it should take about 1 minute 45 seconds at a gentle pace. If you would prefer to read just an excerpt, please use the first half. 2013-05-31 13:45:24 GMT 2013-06-07 18:00:00 (GMT 0) Greenwich Mean Time: Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 4 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

We're looking for someone whose voice, and this cannot be highlighted enough, sounds like they actually understand what they're reading. Phrases have been capitalised for emphasis but obviously the emphasis should be gentler than the capitalisation might suggest. The Government is undertaking a major reform to the welfare system called UNIVERSAL CREDIT.
They say Universal Credit will MAKE WORK PAY. But does it? And will it help families reach what the public think is an acceptable standard of living – what we call the MINIMUM INCOME STANDARD.
Meet Lucy. Lucy is a lone parent with two young children.
She's looking for work. Without work she is £140 SHORT of what she needs for an acceptable standard of living.
If she works 10 hours a week on the minimum wage, the money in her pocket will INCREASE RAPIDLY. She has £49 a week more than before. But the family is still £91 SHORT of what they need.
If Lucy increases her hours, the support she gets in Universal Credit is SHARPLY WITHDRAWN and she has to start paying for childcare. The cost of childcare has increased at TWICE the rate of inflation! If Lucy works 29 hours a week the family is only £7 better off than when she worked 10 hours.
And if Lucy works 30 hours or more she will have to pay INCOME TAX on top of extra childcare. She will actually be WORSE OFF than when she worked fewer hours and her family will still fall short of an acceptable standard of living.
So Universal Credit DOES make work pay, but ONLY up to a point. The rate at which it is withdrawn combined with the high cost of childcare makes it hard for families on low wages to make ends meet.
