A call centre on the Isle of Dogs that is staffed entirely with actors has created its own in-house acting agency.

RSVP Media Response launched RSVP Artists on Monday, June 20 in order to help their employees follow their dreams by finding them work in the performing world.

The company has exclusively employed creative freelancers for the last 28 years, taking advantage of the performers’ confidence and eloquence while assisting them in landing acting roles.

RSVP director Mark Abernethy said: “We’re thrilled to be launching RSVP Artists. It’s an idea that’s been bubbling away in our minds for a long time. It just makes perfect sense to offer our employees an in-house agency. As a company run by actors for actors this is the next natural step!

“RSVP Artists is being met with excitement by our employees, as you can imagine. We’re also going to be able to offer the world of TV, radio, film and theatre their choice of hugely talented creatives.

“We must be the only company in the UK actively trying to find our staff work that takes them away from us! Yet another unique aspect of RSVP!”

Once the staff complete an induction, they are given access to representation by RSVP Artists, and will be represented in exactly the same way as any other commercial agency, with a named agent responsible for supporting the artist in their chosen career.

RSVP Artists support employees at every stage of their career development including audition submissions and advice surgeries.
