MLC Certified Crew Agency



“Searching for the right candidate can prove challenging at best, knowing what you want is easy but trying to get this message through to crew agents can be difficult. I’ve finally found an agent, who not only listened to EXACTLY what I was after, she was able to provide me with the perfect person to fulfil the role to my specifications. I cannot thank Tara from Searchlight Crew enough for making this possible. Finally what a relief to have an agent who listens!
