    Model agency, career in the fashion and advertising industry

    Your chance! For this job there is no study: A vocational training is the only possibility to learn the profession of the Modelbookers, because there is currently no form of training. We show you everything about working successfully in a model & casting agency. Our model agency offers you as a modelbooker freedom, design possibilities and fun at work!

    What does a Modelbooker do in the agency?

    The Booker of a model agency represents the communication link between the model and the customer. He ensures that the order runs smoothly and is the direct contact person for the model. The basic task of a model booker is to generate and maintain customer contacts. He is available as a direct contact for inquiries and knows the faces of the card index. He suggests the appropriate models to the customers and is responsible for the entire booking process. With an instinct for the wishes and demands of his customers, as a model agent he goes in search of the perfect suggestions for bookings on a daily basis. If a model is not able to start a booked job, the Booker will take care of a replacement model. In the same way, the booker is always on the lookout for jobs that the agency’s models can arrange, this becomes active customer acquisition. Acquiring new customers strengthens the entire company. Besides, he also takes care of the negotiations about the buy outs. He mediates invoices of the bookings to the accounting department.

    For the model he arranges information, framework and travel dates. So nothing stands in the way of perfect booking.

    How demanding is the training to become a modelling agent?

    The training as a modelling agent is really demanding. Anyone who really wants to be a model agent later on should make sure that training is the minimum requirement. Such vocational training lasts three years and ends with a degree in office management or dialogue marketing. In both areas we focus your work very much on marketing but also on organization and administration. All in One!

    Later in your vocational training, you will lead the fate of our company as a project manager. Models, customers, events, press, national and international. In our model agency it never gets boring with various tasks! Before you apply, be aware that model agents and model bookers are very dedicated people. Not only do you manage the skills in customer management, you also trust Model in your work, so you always have to give 110%.
