An agency on a mission

AREAS OF SPECIALISM

DISCOVERING POTENTIAL AND HELPING IT THRIVE

We are the only agency to specialise solely on finding and nurturing emerging talent, so that you can take creative risks and new voices and personalities can shine.

CHAMPIONING UNDER-REPRESENTED BACKGROUNDS

We are the only talent agency to have committed our core purpose to seeking out and developing talent from outside the mainstream. We believe there is huge untapped potential in our communities and their creative contributions can enrich the media landscape. We find the people you haven’t heard of but will be thrilled to meet.

PUTTING PASSION BEFORE PROFIT

We don’t sign up anyone and everyone to make a quick buck. We spend time with our emerging talent working out what makes them tick, how hungry they are for success and where they might fit in the creative ecosystem.

MULTI-PLATFORM APPROACH

We take a 360 view - the best creative talent shouldn’t be restricted to one platform or genre. We actively seek out and champion hidden voices and stories to share across all media platforms - from network radio to Netflix, or podcasts to viral videos.

Meet the team

Gritty Talent draws on the experience of two dynamic ex-BBC production gurus who know how to spot rising stars, but do it with social values and integrity at their core.
