Terms and Conditions


  1.  These Terms and Conditions are between Savile Dagny LLC (“the Recruiter”) and the Employer (“the Client” which term shall include all subsidiary and associated companies, firms and associations) seeking to engage the referred Candidate (“the Applicant”).

  2. These Terms and Conditions are deemed to be accepted by the Client by virtue of a request for an introduction, an interview (whether effected by the Recruiter or directly by the Client), whether in person or by telephone, or email, or by the signing of the Terms and Conditions, or by the engagement (which term includes employment or use, whether under a contract of service or for services, or under an agency, licensee, franchise or partnership agreement) of an Applicant introduced by the Recruiter. An ‘introduction’ shall mean an interview, the acceptance of a CV or Applicant's details, via the post, e-mail, facsimile, or oral communication. This applies whether or not the Client was aware of a candidate previously or the Client knew the candidate prior to introduction.  

  3. All introductions and Applicant details are confidential and are supplied to the Client on the understanding that it will keep the information confidential and not disclose it to any third party without the Recruiter's prior written consent.

  4.  Fees will be charged for any Applicant engaged by the Client on a contract, permanent or self-employed basis as a consequence of, or resulting from an introduction to the Client, even though the introduction is made indirectly.  This fee shall be payable if the Applicant is engaged for any position or subsequently re-applies for any other position within the Client company or is engaged by any associate company, firm or person or third party to whom the Client may introduce the Applicant.  All introductions are confidential.  The passing on of an introduction to another employer, recruitment agency, employment business, firm or company which results in an engagement renders the Client liable to pay the Recruiter’s fee as set out above.

  5. Client agrees to notify the Recruiter as promptly as practicable when it issues an employment offer letter to an Applicant and again when the Applicant accepts an offer.  Client will provide Recruiter by fax or email copies of the offer letter and written acceptance. Recruiter understands and acknowledges that a job offer by Client is contingent upon a number of additional steps in the employment process including, but not limited to, background and reference checking which are performed by Client. The Fee will be considered fully earned when an offer has been extended and accepted, and Recruiter will issue an invoice at that time.  The Fee is payable in full by Client within thirty (30) days of the applicant’s offer letter acceptance. On any unpaid invoice, after it is due Client shall pay Savile Dagny, LLC reasonable costs of collection (including attorneys' fees and expenses).

  6. The Recruiter endeavors to ensure the suitability of any Applicant introduced to the Client.  However, the Recruiter does not personally establish references and the Client must satisfy himself as to the suitability of any Applicant and shall be responsible for taking up any references (including confirmation of any professional or academic qualifications) provided by any Applicant and/or the Recruiter before engaging such Applicant.  The Client shall be responsible for obtaining work and other permits, for the arrangement of medical examinations and/or investigations into the medical history of any Applicant, and satisfy any medical and other requirements or qualifications required by law, save where it is required by law that the Agency obtains evidence of qualifications, references or permits.

  7. The Recruiter shall not be liable under any circumstances for any loss, damage or expense suffered or incurred by the Client arising from or in any way connected with the Recruiter seeking an Applicant for the Client or the introduction by the Recruiter to the Client of any Applicant or the engagement of any Applicant by the Client.

The liability of the Recruiter to the Client for any breach by the Recruiter of these terms and conditions or for any liability in negligence or otherwise shall not (save to the extent that such results in death or personal injury) exceed the Recruiter's commission relating to the introduction or supply of the relevant Applicant.

  10. The Client shall indemnify the Recruiter against all and any claims and liabilities howsoever arising in respect of any loss injury damage costs expenses or delays suffered or incurred by an Applicant howsoever caused (whether arising out of the Client’s acts omissions or otherwise) and against all and any claims made by any third party (arising from the Client’s omissions or otherwise) and against all and any claims made by any third party arising directly or indirectly or in any way connected with the introduction or supply of an Applicant to the Client or the acts or omissions of any such Applicant.

  11. The introduction fee is payable by the Client to the Recruiter within 30 days of acceptance of the offer by the referred Applicant. The introduction fee is calculated on the gross annual remuneration which term shall include total twelve (12) months’ base salary and fees, guaranteed and/or anticipated bonus and commission earnings.
