LONDON CASTING DAY
Earlier this month the team travelled to our London office to cast some new face models and actors for our divisions! We had such a wonderful time meeting all of the new face talent and completing some updates too. Casting days are always exciting for the team because a lot of work goes into scouting the right talent for our clients and divisions.
Our recruitment team works really hard to find the best fit, not only for our clients but for our talent too! Our books are open to anyone to apply and we are always looking for fun, unique and talented individuals to join our divisions, If you would like to apply to our agency please visit our website or click here.
Throughout March our digital team will be adding our new face talent onto the website, but In the meantime here are some behind-the-scenes from our casting days, we've also included some feedback from the talent so you can see how their day went!

CLIMATE POSITIVE WORKFORCE
We've been proudly partnered with Ecologi since June 2022, helping to balance out our carbon footprint by supporting environmental projects! Over the past 10 months of being partnered with Ecologi we have planted over 1,000 trees and helped fund 18 verified carbon avoidance projects which in turn has supported the prevention of 75 tCO2e from being emitted into the atmosphere. Some recent projects that we've helped fund are helping to distribute cleaner cookstoves in Kenya and a support a wind power project in Thailand - which is brilliant!
Have you introduced an eco-friendly method into your daily routine? We'd love to hear about it... Message us on our socials here.
