Talent Finding Services

Since 2005 I’ve worked as a TV recruitment executive, crewing up productions and headhunting key producers and senior managers (like heads of production and development) for specific projects and different clients.

I work at Dragonfly Film and TV exclusively recruiting all levels of producer for a range of factual programmes. Do email me your CV for my database to elsa.sharp@dragonfly.tv

I work on a variety of genres from specialist factual to features and maintain a database,.

In the past I've worked for different independent production companies including Firecracker Films, Raw TV, Objective Productions, Impossible Pictures, Outline Productions and the BBC finding producers at all levels from APs and PDs to series producers, executive producers and senior creative officers.

I have a strong network of contacts with talent managers at the BBC and independent production companies. I am part of the Talent Managers Forum which includes the BBC, five, ITV and Channel 4. We share and recommend good people to each other and meet regularly to discuss issues facing the industry and recruitment.

Elsa did a brilliant job for us. She is very fast and efficient and found us a very impressive range of candidates in no time for a very reasonable fee.
Detlef Siebert, Series Producer
BBC Northern Ireland Network Factual


Working with Elsa Sharp has been a joy and delight. On two occasions she has assisted Impossible Pictures in hiring talent. The first instance was at every level across the board, both production and editorial, the second was potentially two key hires for the company. On both occasions her approach was both creative and organised, bringing people to the table we would not have necessarily considered had we seen their CVs blind. Her ability to get comprehensive references from individuals impressed us. She managed us, as her client, incredibly well and was very fair with her billing. We will definitely be returning to her as and when we have recruiting needs.
Sam Jukes-Adams, Head of Production
Impossible Pictures


Elsa knows everyone, moved incredibly quickly and had great judgement on people’s suitability. She was a Godsend.
