Pinewood Studios, Iver Heath




Senior Casting Agent

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
  • Liaising with production clients and reporting to the Head of Casting and Management
  • You will be required to work on your own but, where necessary on the larger projects, you will also organise and lead a small team who will assist you to achieve your project briefs and casting targets.



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 visualinterpretation; 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.
  • Computer literate (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel).
