The provision of a CV or any information sufficient to identify the Candidate following a request by a Client shall also be deemed to be acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions. Any provision of a Candidate’s details is done on a strictly confidential basis and is conditional upon the Client agreeing not to disclose any information about a Candidate to any other person or organisation without the Company’s prior written consent.
  3. The Client shall pay the Company's fees according to the following payment terms or as otherwise stated in the agreement:

    3. a Shortlist Fee is non-refundable and payable upon presentation to the Client of a minimum of  3 Candidates who in the reasonable opinion of the

Company meet the agreed specification;

  1. a Completion/Recruitment Fee, which incorporates the Total Fee, minus the Retainer or Shortlist fees if applicable, shall be due upon the signing of the employment contract (or of any other agreement covering collaboration between the Client and the Candidate) or on the date the Candidate enters the employment of the Client, whichever is earlier;

If during a temporary  assignment or following completion of the contract the Client wishes to engage or employ the Candidate on a permanent basis, the Client shall pay MP an amount equivalent to an Recruitment Fee (as above).  Clause 14 is not applicable in this situation.
  2. If the Candidate introduced by the Company is not hired by the Client or if the Candidate rejects the employment (or collaboration) offered by the Client, and if the Candidate is subsequently employed by (or collaborates with) the Client within a period of 18 months following the date of the first introduction, then the Client shall pay fees to the Company as stipulated in Clause 3 above.

If the Client introduces a Candidate selected for it by the Company to another person or Company, and if the Candidate is then hired by (or collaborates with) said person or said Company within a period of 18 months following the date of the first introduction of the Candidate to the Client, then the Client shall pay fees to the Company as stipulated in Clause 3 above. 
  4. Any Candidate identified by the Client shall be introduced to the Company and shall fall within the scope of the recruitment assignment, and shall be the object of an invoice as stipulated in Clause 3 above if the Candidate is hired. This provision does not apply to Candidates coming from an internal mobility process conducted by the Client.
  5. If, for a given assignment, the Client decides to recruit (or to collaborate with) more than one of the Candidates introduced by the Company instead of solely with the Candidate contractually agreed upon, the Client shall pay the Company fees as stipulated in Clause 3 above for each of the Candidates hired.
  6. In accordance with said terms and conditions, the Client shall inform The Company of the hiring of any Candidate(s) within a period of 15 days and specifically, shall inform the Company of the terms and conditions of the employment contract agreed to by the Candidate(s) hired.
  7. Assignments shall be undertaken for a maximum duration of 12 months.

    4. the termination of the contract does not arise from either an economic layoff, redundancy, or from a modification of the position (or of the functions) exercised by the Candidate or from a restructuring by the Client;
    5. the free replacement shall only be applicable for an identical role, salary and job title.
  12. The Client, as the Candidate’s legal employer, shall be responsible for fulfilling all required legal formalities as the Company is not legally authorised to do so. Specifically, the Client shall verify that the Candidate holds a valid work permit or any medical examinations as required.
  13. The Company shall use its best efforts to ensure the aptitude of the Candidates introduced to the Client and to maintain a high quality of service and integrity, but it does not guarantee, neither expressly nor implicitly, the aptitude of the Candidates introduced to the Client.
  14. The Company is not liable to the Client for any damage, loss, expenses, disputes or spending suffered or incurred by the Client in connection with the recruiting or hiring of Candidates by the Client. The Client shall indemnify the Company against any third-party claim in connection with the recruitment.
  15. Fees as set out in Clause 3 will also be payable if, within 12 months of acceptance of the Company’s General Terms and Conditions the Client, engages, in any capacity, any person who at the time of such engagement was employed by the Company and  had direct or indirect contact with the Client.
  16. All fees due under the present terms and conditions shall be payable by the Client within 30 days of the invoice date.

Any judicial and extrajudicial costs incurred by the Company in respect of recovery and collection of any overdue amounts payable by the Client shall be for the Client’s account. In the event of non-payment of an overdue invoice, the totality of all invoices due relative to this contract and relative to any and all other contracts signed between the parties shall be immediately due for payment.
  17. These General Terms and Conditions and the assignment to which they apply shall be governed by Swedish law.
