Certain vacancies are NOT open to ANY agencies, regardless of their status. These vacancies are clearly marked on our website.

Submission of any unsolicited CVs to us by your company will be deemed evidence of full and unlimited acceptance by your company of these terms, and agreement by your company that these terms are the totality of any commercial or contractual relationship whatsoever between our companies in respect of the candidate(s) whose unsolicited CVs were thus sent.

If we have requested CV’s from you for a specific role, there should be no assumption made by you as to the fees that will be paid by us until you have received confirmation in writing/by email that we have agreed to your fee structure. Fees should be negotiated for each individual role. We will not accept a blanket fee structure.
