Contractors

With regards to Contractor appointments, our processes fundamentally mirror that of the Permanent Roles. It is important to stress, therefore, that as the client you will be liable to pay the full fee upon successful placement of a candidate.

With regards to ongoing payments to the Candidate, we would stress that they will be formally regarded as independent contractors. As such, you will pay them directly and they will hold full responsibility for their own tax and benefit affairs; as a third-party agency, Engineering Jobs Cumbria will bear no responsibility in these affairs.

Fee Structure

With respect to fixed term contract placements, we charge in the exactly the same way as with permanent placements – with the fee being a pro rata calculation of the permanent fee.

Adjustment to standard Terms and Conditions including fees

Adjustments to the above will only be agreed if we are officially documented as preferred suppliers and are listed upon the relevant PSL / PSA documentation.

This may include master vendor agreements but not where the effect is punitive to us.

It is significant to note that if a specific clause of any terms is altered via mutual agreement, the balance of the terms will remain intact and unaltered.
