When a job is Awarded the terms of the job are set forth in the Job Agreements tab.
To review the payment and terms for a job you've been awarded, please do the following:
- Visit Voices and Log in.
- Navigate to Jobs > Awarded.
- In this section you should see the job(s) you have received a payment for. Click on the title or job number to access the job.
- Go to the Job Agreements tab.
- Click View Details to review the Project Deadline, Payment Terms and Amount, Usage (for Music and Voice Over), and Script Length (for Voice Over).
- Click either Accept Job Agreement or Decline Job Agreement.
- Once you accept the job agreement, the job is placed in Working mode and you can upload files through the Files tab when they're ready.
What's Included in a Job Agreement?
Each job is built upon a Job Agreement. This agreement outlines what both the client and talent expect and agree to when working together. If an additional payment is added to a job, an additional agreement is created and is then added to the original, or first, Job Agreement, created for the job.
Agreements are made up of several common elements, including:
Client and Talent Contact Information
Necessary contact information is displayed from both parties (you and the client), so you'll know who is offering you the contract and where they are located.
Total Project Amount
This includes the amount the talent will be paid, including the payment for the original job as well as any additional payments added to it.
Job Agreement Details
This includes the Milestone # (specific to each payment, original or additional), the job or additional payment title (Description), the Project Deadline, as well as the Amount of each payment (original or additional).
Job Agreement Status
Indicates whether or not the job agreement is pending (i.e. sent by the client to the talent and awaiting the talent’s approval) or approved (i.e. approved by both parties).
Job Agreement Terms
The terms outline the nitty-gritty details of the job agreement, including: when the agreement was submitted (i.e. sent to the talent for review), the project deadline (i.e when the talent must have all work completed and uploaded), the project overview, the service and skill, usage (for Voice Over and Music jobs), final script length (for Voice Over jobs), payment terms, and schedule (i.e. when the talent will begin and complete work).
Notes for Talent
This is an optional section for the client to provide talent with additional information to successfully complete the job (e.g. file format, artistic direction, or any other crucial details).
Files for Talent
This is an optional section for the client to upload any files for the talent to reference or review in order to complete the job (i.e. NDAs, talent release forms, additional direction and references etc.).
Why Would I Need to Decline a Job Agreement?
You have the option of declining an awarded job by clicking the 'Decline Agreement' button in the Job Agreements tab. The 'Decline Agreement' button creates a case for the support team who then reach out to you to find out more details.
You may need to decline an agreement for any number of reasons. Often the issue is that the payment amount may need to be updated due to changes in script length or usage. Or that you may need to withdraw as your availability has changed.
Once Voices has obtained any necessary information we are happy to help negotiate a mutually acceptable Job Agreement or arrange for your withdrawal from the project.
