4. Personal contacts or interviews with prospective candidates or their
acquaintances can be arranged only if the full Placement Fee has
been preauthorized by credit or debit card. After

Client’s credit or debit card will be unless the Client contacts the
Agency to inform it that they do not want to confirm the
candidate. Subsequently if the Client decides not to confirm the
candidate the card will be refunded in full. When the Client
receives an offer of a candidate and clinks on the link to confirm
the candidate the Client authorizes the Agency to debit their debit
or credit card with the Placement Fee as per the Agency’s
invoice in order to confirm the candidate. When the Client receives
an offer of a candidate and clicks on the link requesting
further information on the candidate they are requesting the
candidates contact details to contact the candidate directly and

6. Should the client effect any form of introduction, direct or indirect,
of a candidate to a third party, or pass on any details resulting in
permanent, short- term, full or part time employment, the Client

Current Scale of Charges.
7. The Agency will endeavour to provide the Client with candidates as well
suited as possible, and to this end will seek to furnish the Client
with all relevant information concerning the candidate and to
check details, documentation and references. However, the final
responsibility for any decision to employ the candidate rests
with the Client, who is therefore strongly advised to check details,
documentation and references personally. The Agency does not
offer any warranty as the suitability, honesty, character or
capability of any candidate.
8. The Agency accepts no liability of any kind for any inconvenience ,

be charged with the subsequent fees due.
