The agency is looking for men and women aged 18-40, who are located in or within easy commuting distance to Leeds, Salford Quays or Liverpool to star as extras in Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks.

A spokesman for the agency said all work will be paid at Equity rate and that it will be regular, but not full time.

The spokesman said:

“The agency is getting busier and busier every year and we have found ourselves in a position (fortunately or unfortunately) where we have more work than we have people.

“As a result, we are looking for new artists to fulfil regular and semi-regular roles on Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks.

“Whilst living in one area does not mean that you cannot undertake work in the others and their respective soaps, you are more likely to be offered roles within your area.

“This is some of the most highly sought after work in the industry, as such, we are only looking for those with a genuine interest and passion for these soaps. Those who are reliable and dedicated.

“Those interested can also take part in any other projects the agency is undertaking – of which there is plenty!”

A DBS certificate is required. If you already have one that can be used. And the agency won’t take on anyone who is currently with an agency that offers work on these soaps.
