Work Trade at MRF '24
We are thrilled to be opening up work-trade positions for MRF. This is your chance to be a part of an incredible all-female team, co-creating one of the most beautiful women’s events in the world! We are so grateful you want to join us and we can’t wait to have you on the team.
There is a $25 non-refundable application fee to apply for a work trade position.
Our work trade positions exchange one GA ticket (which includes meals at $750) for an expectation of 24-26 work hours.
**All accepted work-trade positions will purchase their tickets to confirm their spots, and will be refunded the amount once they have fulfilled their duties at MRF.
