With 5EM the admin is a breeze. They are super organized and on top of the paperwork, being prompt and thorough in their response. They guide you through the process effortlessly and they go the extra mile to answer any query and keep you up-to-date.

I can highly recommend them to anyone interested in pursuing a career of performing on ships or elsewhere out of South Africa. They will guide you, protect you and give you a kick in the butt when you need it! I for one look forward to working with them for many years to come.

I’m glad that I had the agency on my side to help me with all paperwork and preparing me for the job. They’ve been very helpful and always answered questions I had as it was my first time. Having had this great experience I look forward to my future with Five Entertainment.
