Eleanor was the Casting Producer on the latest series of Location, Location, Location, Channel 4's primetime property show. She managed a small team in finding struggling house hunters all over the UK. Eleanor is very experienced in all aspects of casting, she's efficient, hard working and conscientious as well as a master at targeting and communicating the brief of the show to third parties, to persuade them to get the word out for us. She understood the contributor brief well and could confidently pick out the best stories the team was coming across. She communicated well with me, flagging issues when they arose and offering solutions so we could deliver a good choice of contributors to the channel, against a tight deadline.
