Talent Management Models Direct are not just an internet showcase sites. We’re a real modelling agency, run by real people – and you can meet us on this page.
If you want to talk to us about any aspect of our work, please call us on 0844 334 0000. One of our trained, professional co-ordinators will be pleased to talk to you.
I think that's called 'passion' and 'commitment' and my understanding is that in order to be successful one needs both. If you're reading this thinking about how, you might find success, the first thing I'll freely tell you here and now is that, you'll need to never give up.
Giving up, is what everyone else does, those left standing are 'successful' or as the 'givers ups' prefer to call them, 'lucky'. Ask Elton John, Kate Moss, or anyone at the top of their profession,' how lucky have you been'? Be prepared for a moment, while they weigh up whether to go into what is really behind their success. I doubt luck will get a mention.
From photographing people ourselves, we went on to represent people farther afield, using photographs they had taken, to find them work. Whenever we we're asked for a particular look, talent, skill, we would match our models and talent with the clients' demand and if successful, 'presto' a booking would happen. For more than 20 years now this has happened and many thousands of people, with all manner of looks, skills and motivations have been represented by us to the film, TV, advertising, fashion and promotional industries throughout the UK and Europe.
All the while, we've been a Government regulated Employment Agency. Nowadays with the scrabble of competing websites, many businesses make all sorts of wild claims, while in their tiny small print there's lots of 'what they don't do', like find work for example. Showcase sites are just that. Unregulated online displays, showing lots of paying hopefuls smiling out at other prospective hopefuls' thinking of joining them. Nothing else happens. Sad but true.
Whereas, as a regulated Employment Agency, we have an in house team of professionals on the phones and online throughout the day, talking to clients and proposing our talent and models for paid work. Paid, because that's where our money comes from, 1/3 of what we get for our models and talent. That can be from £100 to several hundred pounds a day.
Have a thorough look at our site and better still, come and see us. Our UK Head Office is in East Anglia, a beautiful part of the country and there's lots to see and do, if you perhaps combine your visit into a weekend.
From our talents' online success stories if you like the look of the sort of people you'd like to represent you, complete an online application and see how we respond.
Whatever you do, if you are looking for success, it wont come looking for you. You'll need to seek it out and not give up when it takes a while. If you'd like some help in looking, that's what we do and we may well be able to help.
With, or without us, good luck!
In my late teens I did freelance work sourcing models and talent for commercials. I loved it so much I set my sights on being an Agent! Talent Management talent agency is an efficient, professional and exciting company to be involved in, no two days are the same! My favourite part of my work is calling talent to say they have been selected for an assignment - they are always so thrilled - its a real 'feel good factor'! My passion is technology and keeping Talent Management talent agency up-to the minute with the latest internet and email developments. Keep checking our site, there are new additions every week!
Hi My name is Kara, I am from Northern Ireland and have been living in the UK for the past 12 yrs. I am a very sociable and an outgoing person and enjoy the craic!, I love to travel, especially going back home to see my family and friends and I have been to other various countries across the world. My favourite place so far has been New York, as I really love to shop and taking in the ambience of this wonderful city at the same time. The shows were amazing and the sites were breathtaking. My weekends are spent with friends and family enjoying the surroundings that Norwich brings, especially the expanding Shopping Malls and in particular The Norfolk broads which have been coined ‘Britain’s Magical Waterland’ which represents the mystic beauty of the rivers. Due to my outgoing personality i enjoy meeting people and socialising in many different ways, I’m always ready a challenge and ready for what life has round the corner!
Music and performance is my passion and I have been playing music and singing since I was just 5 years old entering competitions and working hard at my music exams. After finishing my education I took time out to get married and have my 2 sons, but the lure of music, theatre, TV and entertainment kept pulling me back. I ran a recording studio and TV production company and this is how I became involved with Talent Management and Models Direct some 17 years ago. I have worked on lots of the fantastic and innovative developments here at the agency and work with a great team of people but the best thing is being able to relate directly and with experience to the models, singers, dancers and entertainers that we represent both as a parent and a performer. I still sing and play regularly and have spent time in front of the camera for Sky TV and the BBC as well as meeting some some fantastic people ranging from Fearne Cotton & Jamie Cullum to John Major, Terry Wogan & Dr David Starkey. The thrill and buzz of being on stage at festivals and concerts and on camera is unbeatable.
I love travelling and having family in Ireland and my partners family come from Cyprus, I've always got an excuse to travel! Whether it's a weekend away or a well deserved holiday I always like to make the most of it, be it sightseeing or relaxing! My passion for Italy began a few years back whilst on a road trip with friends through travelling through France and into Italy over the Alps, hence it being a place I have returned to many times. Staying in Rome, Lake Garda, Venice, Verona, Turin, The Dolomites, it's a fantastic country and will always be a special place for me, I am sure I will return again! I was staggered by New York, it was an amazing experience to visit, from the Empire State Building to The Statue of Liberty, from a Broadway Show to just browsing around Chinatown, I am very pleased to know that I have visited this incredible city. Barcelona has the most amazing and varied architecture, in particular Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece 'The Sagrada Familia'. Las Ramblas is the street that certainly is the heart of Barcelona, a vibrant and lively promenade filled with Barcelona action at its best, and of course my partner enjoyed our visit to 'The Nou Camp', and like Italy another place I would love to return to. I'm now about to book my dream holiday of a Trans Canadian holiday, starting in Toronto and finishing in Vancouver for this summer and I cannot wait!
I’m a mum to 2 young boys, my eldest is almost 6, he is at school full-time so it's nice on my days off to do the mummy role and take him to school and also pick him up aswell, seeing his face when he spots me at the school gate is priceless!! My youngest is 3 and its nice to spend quality time with him aswell. I have been working at Talent Management now for 2 years and it fits in perfectly around being a mum, previously to this job i worked in a Pub/Restaurant for 8 years as the Assistant Manager, i disliked the unsociable hours after having my children, so felt a career change was needed!
As a keen runner, I have spent the last 2 years competing in the annual Race for life, to help raise money for a charity which is very close to my heart. Having lived in a small town for all my childhood, I’m now in the process of trying to move into a city environment to experience city living and all that this has to offer.
Throughout my life I have enjoyed a number of different experiences, from qualifying as a florist, traveling to Africa, and having my Son. For myself, I love fashion and beauty and personally love being creative wherever I am able to be, whether it be hair and make-up, to decorating the house, arranging flowers, or simply creating different and exciting artwork. I love trying new things and experiences and love the word TRY. I love music and dance, and come from a background of dancing, and music where i played and graded in the flute. For now most of my time and dedication is given to my Son, who i owe my life to, and proud to be called Mum, the challenges yet fun exciting opportunities and experiences we share are different day to day yet so rewarding.
I had spent the majority of my working life in the legal sector and when I felt that a change of career was needed, I was lucky enough to be offered a position in the Assignments Department at Talent Management. I highly enjoy working in a positive environment, being the bearer of good news to our models and supporting them throughout the booking process, as well as working with exciting clients on a daily basis. Passions of mine outside of work include surrounding myself with good people, humour, music, Egyptian/Oriental dance, exploring different cultures, travel and Caribbean food.
I like the English weather, North Norfolk beaches, Books in the bath, going to live gigs. Ice cream, barbies, friends round for a laugh, getting lost in a forest, wondering off the path. Walking, cycling, getting out of breath. Tickling the children, putting them to bed. I don't like the dentist.
