Due to extensive growth, Uni-versalEXTRAS are seeking multiple

Experienced Casting Agents to join our busy team based at Pinewood Film Studios.

You will be casting Extras and other supporting artists for various productions.


Uni-versalEXTRAS are a highly successful Extras Casting agency based in Pinewood Film Studios, Iver.

We have supplied extras, walk-ons, background and supporting artists for TV, Film, and Commercials for over ten years. Our extensive client base includes: the BBC, ITV, DreamWorks, Warner Bros, Sony, Universal, Paramount and many others.


Our Casting Agents will work across various production specialisations including TV and Film, Commercials, Photo / Stills shoots, Music and Corporate.

Key responsibilities and tasks will include:

Coordinating TV, film, commercials, photo shoots, music and corporate video projects by casting and booking Supporting Artists

You are already an experienced Casting Agent (Minimum 2 + years Casting Experience) and will be able to hit the ground running straight away. We are also interested in hearing from those with a production background working directly with Extras and Casting, e.g. as an Assistant Director or a Producer with responsibility for picking the “faces”.

You will be able to take a brief at speed and have a strong sense of what ‘look’ a client requires. (Please note, this is not contributor researching for reality series. Extras casting is about the visual interpretation; we need people with a good eye for a face, not a story.)

Experienced leader and team player with the ability to multi-task, organise time and work to short deadlines.

Experience of managing projects/productions from beginning to end. Confident when dealing with the general public, work colleagues and clients.

Excellent communications skills – written and verbal.

Ability to stay calm and focussed when dealing with high pressure, demanding situations and clients.
