"My second assignment was a fashion modeling job for the Textile Centre of Excellence in Huddersfield. It was in a really quirky, factory which was really cool. I was basically modelling designer cloths that were really funky, really cool and different. We had professional photographers and had our hair and makeup done which was really nice as well. Getting to know the team was really good. I made some really nice friends with the other Models Direct models."

With a population of over 800,000, Leeds is the third largest city in England – and so it is no wonder there is such high demand for models from Leeds and the surrounding area to work with both big name operations and boutique businesses.

Leeds is home to almost 110,000 companies and has seen the fastest rate of private-sector jobs growth of any UK city.

As one of the country’s leading modelling agencies, with clients including the likes of BMW, Barclays, McDonald’s, Odeon and Channel 4, as well as Pampers, EDF and Santander, we are in a strong position to help those hoping to find modelling jobs in Leeds.

We work with all sorts of companies and brands that are either based in the city itself or are eager to make the most of its wealth of resources.

Leeds developed as a mill town during the Industrial Revolution, and, while it is still known for its history and architecture, it also has an abundance of contemporary culture.

The city has four universities; beauty spots, such as Roundhay Park and wonderful historic backgrounds, including Kirkstall Abbey.

Close to the foothills of the eastern Pennines, the Yorkshire Dales and the Peak District, it is also very central for many of the picturesque and dramatic swathes of natural England.

The city is simply overflowing with opportunities for both experienced and new models and as one of the foremost modelling agencies in Leeds, we can help you to tap into that.

All you have to do is fill in our form, send us a photograph and one of our team members will contact you to explain more about Model Direct and how we work.

Among the many models who have worked in Leeds through us are Ellie and Tylee who took part in a shoot with digital bus pass system operator ShuttleID.

Our pair were asked to dress casually and pretend they were getting on and off buses and coaches.

It was a fun day out and a new experience for Tylee, who said afterwards:

“This was my first professional shoot and I absolutely loved it!

“Other than the terrible weather, the shoot was great. The people I worked with were very clear on what they wanted and also really nice to be around.

“I would happily work with them again!”
