Hello! We’re looking for a tech savvy, switched on admin savant to join our team. 

This is a full time position and we are looking for someone who will happily support our small team. Whilst this is a creative office, and we would love  to bring someone in who has a real interest in the arts, casting is also very admin oriented, and we’re looking for the perfect person who will happily take on all administrative and office tasks. This position is available to start ASAP. 

You will be supporting a team of 2 Casting Directors, 1 Casting Associate and 1 Casting Assistant with TV commercials along with drama projects. 

Office Hours are 9am – 6pm, Monday – Friday in our office in Redfern.

We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and identities. 

We invite you to share more about yourself, if you would like to do so, in your cover letter.

Starting salary: $46,800pa + super.

  • Making coffees for the team (we have a pretty reliable coffee machine that we can teach you how to use) and doing lunch runs when required.
  • Someone who is comfortable around dogs, as there will be some trips to the dog park involved (NB – the park isn’t a deal breaker but you still need to like dogs as we have two big ones!)
  • Answering and transferring calls.
  • Managing shared inboxes.
  • Updating our online schedules.
  • Proficiency with Mac operating systems as well as Microsoft Office suite, Dropbox, Google Drive systems.

In your cover letter, please give us an introduction to who you are, why you’d like to work in casting, what skill sets you possess that are relevant to the position, and most importantly: tell us what your favourite film/TV series/musical is.
