Makers Academy is not liable for any claims of any nature (unless of a type that cannot be legally excluded) arising from the Introduction of any Candidate to the Hiring Partner.
Makers Academy and the Hiring Partner agree that:
- in the event that Makers Academy facilitates an Introduction to a Candidate who is offered a position by the Hiring Partner, which offer is accepted by the Candidate by its entry into contract in respect of a Permanent Role or a Fixed Contract, while the Introduction remains valid, then the Hiring Partner will pay a Recruitment Fee to Makers Academy;
- at or after the completion of a Fixed Contract, if the Candidate is subsequently hired into a Permanent Role, by the Hiring Partner, then the Hiring Partner will pay a Conversion Fee to Makers Academy.
The Hiring Partner undertakes to inform Makers Academy when it hires a Candidate and to provide Makers Academy details of the terms on which the Candidate has been hired, including but not limited to:
- The name of the Candidate;
- Whether the hire is for a Permanent Role or a Fixed Contract;
- The date on which the Candidate’s contract begins (“Start Date”).
Makers Academy reserves the right to request reasonable and necessary additional information to calculate any Fee.
Payment of Fees
Any Fees due will be payable in a single payment to Makers Academy within 20 calendar days of the Start Date.
For Permanent Roles, if a Candidate’s employment with the Hiring Partner is terminated, for any reason, within three months of their Start Date, and the Hiring Partner informs Makers Academy of this fact within 10 working days, Makers Academy will charge no additional Fee for the Hiring Partner to hire another Candidate during the following 10 working days.
If the Hiring Partner does not hire another Candidate within those 10 working days, then Makers Academy will refund a proportion of the Recruitment Fee, depending on when the termination of employment occurs:
- during the first month: a refund of 80% of the Recruitment Fee;
- during the second month: a refund of 50% of the Recruitment Fee;
- during the third month: a refund of 20% of the Recruitment Fee.
Makers Academy will not refund a Recruitment Fee, or any part thereof, for Fixed Contracts.
Fees will not be refundable other than as described here.
