The Model/Promotions Worker hereby appoints RMG to act on his/her behalf in arranging assignments with Clients.

The Terms herein constitute a contract for services between RMG, acting as agent for the Client and the Model/Promotions Worker and they govern each and every assignment undertaken by the Model/Promotions Worker. However no contract shall exist between the RMG and the Model/Promotions Worker between assignments.
For avoidance of doubt, these Terms shall not give rise to a contract of employment between the Client or RMG and the Model/Promotions Worker. The Model/Promotions Worker is engaged as a self-employed worker, and is responsible for the provision of such documents, which authenticate proven self-employed status. The Model/Promotions Worker is also responsible for all statutory deductions (Income Tax and National Insurance contributions). If the model is an employee of a Limited Company, the Limited Company is engaged as a supplier of the Client and the Limited Company shall be liable for all statutory deductions and taxation.

RMG will endeavour to obtain suitable assignments for the Model/Promotions Worker where there is a suitable assignment with a Client requiring such a worker.
RMG is under no obligation to offer the Model/Promotions Worker any assignment and reserves the right to offer any assignment to such Model/Promotions Worker as it may elect, equally the Model/Promotions Worker is not obliged to accept any assignment offered. Suitability shall be determined by RMG in its absolute discretion.
The Model/Promotions Worker acknowledges that it is the nature of temporary work that there may be periods between assignments when no suitable work is available. RMG shall incur no liability towards the Model/Promotions Worker should it fail to offer opportunities to work in the category (3) that is specified above or in any other category.
