Mapa Model Management needs more models who love to travel around the world. The models are needed for on-stay placements.
On-stay refers to partner agencies of Mapa Model Management who are inviting models to come to their countries to present them to their clients and offer them jobs locally. The time period that a model is “on stay” can vary between 8 weeks and 6 months, depending on the client response and the booking success of the model.
Usually an on-stay contract lasts at least 2 months. When a long-haul flight has to be booked because the on-stay location is far away, the duration is at least 3 months. On-stays for models who work under us as their “mother-agency” are combined with a long-term placement, otherwise described as a representation. This means that after the on-stay is over, the model is still displayed and bookable on the website of the respective partner agency. This can lead to valuable subsequent bookings, which often result only 2-3 months after the model has left their on-stay destination.
When a model is in a particular city, they live together with other models in a model apartment owned by the partner agency. They are usually supplied with a mobile phone, incl. a local phone card, by the partner agency. Flights for the model to travel to the destination are arranged by the partner agency. Weekly pocket money is paid, so that the model can buy her own food and drinks. Pocket money usually ranges between $30 and $50 per week and is also dependent on the country and the money needed for living in that country.
The daily program of the model is go & see's and castings organized by the partner agency or the booker who is working for the agency. Casting and go & see's serve the purpose of winning as many clients as possible so that the model get as many bookings as possible. The stays abroad are extremely important especially for young models to expand their book and gain international experience. Their international market value also rises through stays abroad.
After finishing a stay, the income from jobs minus the expenses incurred (flight costs, model apartment, gym, pre-paid pocket money, telephone cards etc.) is paid. If the model does not receive positive responses from customers within 14 days of the stay, the model is usually sent back to avoid incurring unnecessary costs and to make the room in the apartment available to another model. The risks for potential losses is generally carried by the partner agency, which then has the right to send the model back home earlier than planned.
It is recommended that you take a notebook with you so that you can always remain in contact with your mother agency, and check-in once a day (via email, skype or whatsapp – calls abroad are usually very expensive). Usually all model apartments have a wireless connection which you can use free of charge.
