Model Manager (m/f/d) – You have already completed a commercial training? You want to start as a career changer in a model agency? You have already worked in a model agency and are looking for a new job? Perfect! Whether you gained your office experience in a bank, with real estate or in another industry, apply now for our full-time position as Model Manager*in.
Tasks: Office & much more!
Before we get to the application form, first a look at the job duties. The tasks in a model agency consist of two parts.
Office management: customers, models and communication
Part 1: Office management – The normal office management, from the first offer to a possible payment reminder, accounting and personnel management. You already know all about that! Ideally, you have already completed vocational training or a degree. Especially for graduates of the International School of Management (ISM), Hochschule Fresenius and the University of Cologne, it’s not far from the seminar room to the office. After all, our office is centrally located, opposite the Mediapark with a view of the lake and Cologne Cathedral.
Model agency: photographers, castings and travels
Part 2: Model agency – Here come then also still the special tasks in a model agency in addition. For example, the cooperation with photographers, for the construction of the portfolios. Likewise, the communication with models and customers, from casting to jobs, to the entire billing. Of course, travel management, sometimes events and of course constantly marketing, especially in our agency.
Among other things, you will learn a lot in content marketing, which in turn ensures high placement in search engines. If you are thinking about a long-term career, international would also be an area that will be part of your tasks. “International” means communication with other agencies, but also partial contact with our online magazine. In addition, after some time you would also help with our social media presence, from Instagram to TikTok. In addition, there will be some stays abroad, such as London, Paris, Milan.
It’s not a traditional office job, it’s International Model Management.

What we’re gonna teach you
Of course, no matter how good your business education was, you can not know all the aspects that are important in a model agency. Which tasks belong to it, you have already learned above.
That’s why we’re still teaching you here, of course! This includes, for example, working in Photoshop, that is, with image editing software, as well as working in video editing programs, for example, for YouTube and social media marketing.
We don’t want you to be a specialist, we want you to be a generalist!
So you will be the competent contact person for our customers, but also for our models and our team for all questions.
- Marketing & Brand Building
- Photoshop, image editing for web
- Video editing after shootings
- International customers, partners and communication
Fashion is a big part of it, but so is all other areas of advertising.
In an international model agency you learn so much more than the pure administration of jobs. Here it’s about much more: international clients, models, but also partners with whom you are in daily communication. Your projects will become more challenging every year and after about 3 or 4 years you will have understood the flow of a model agency.
Why three or four years? Until you can discover a model, that is, know what’s important, have built up this model, school is over, the first time Paris, Milan, New York, all this takes time and costs time. Accordingly, you understand the “flow” only after a few years, when you have made all the experiences yourself.
