  6. After the interviews we will contact both the client and the candidates for feedback
  7. Should the client wish to offer employment we will facilitate the agreement regarding the terms of employment etc. and extend the offer to the candidate
  8. Once there is confirmation of the basic terms of employment, from both sides, we will send out the Letter of Appointment & Acceptance indicating the basic terms of employment etc.

  11. There is a 90 day guarantee that we will replace the candidate if the working relationship does not work out
    1. In the event that the placement fee exceeds R15 000 there is a 120 day guarantee period that we will replace the candidate if the working relationship does not work out
  12. After the placement we are available at all times for advise and queries and in the event that something goes wrong we are there to advise based on the LRA and how to go about dealing with the situation etc.

Please note the following:

  • We will continue to work on your position until we have assisted you with placement thereof otherwise until you have informed us that you no longer require a candidate
  • There is NO limit to the number of CVs that we send to you
  • We do NOT charge you per CV that we send to you
