For avoidance of doubt, no conduct, representations nor exchange of terms between any Group personnel and any User shall vary, replace or supersede any part of these Terms.

Regardless of whether Information has been provided for a specific Publicised Role, the Group will be entitled to use Information in connection with filling any current or future Group vacancy.
  6. Unless otherwise stated in an Agreement, Introductions shall only be made using the message portal provided on the Webpages.

  11. Where a Candidate was an Agency worker (an individual directly employed on an Agency’s payroll) providing any services to a Group entity during the 6-month period immediately prior to Engagement of that Candidate by any Group entity, the Candidate will be deemed to have been validly Introduced by the Agency under the terms of a relevant Agreement which sets forth any fees payable.
  12. Introductions made without a valid and unexpired Agreement will be deemed to have been made on a “free of charge” basis and the Group will have no liability to pay a relevant fee or commission in respect of the relevant Introduction.

    • The Candidate Introduces themselves before the Agency did so; or
    • A Candidate previously Introduced by any Agency was not Engaged by a Group company within 6-months from the date of the Introduction by that Agency.
  14. Where more than one Agency has validly Introduced the same Candidate within the 6-month period preceding the Engagement of relevant Candidate by any Group company, subject to the terms of each Agreement, only the first Agency to Introduce the Candidate will be entitled to receive any fee or commission.
  15. No fee will be payable to any Agency for the Introduction of Candidates previously Engaged directly or indirectly by any Group company in any capacity.
