  1. DESCRIPTION OF OUR SERVICES

    Vettery is an online recruiting marketplace. Our Services allow you to connect with individuals seeking employment opportunities (each, a “Candidate”). We serve as intermediary between Candidates and Employers. Vettery is not involved in any contract of employment and is not bound by any contractual agreement arising between Candidates and Employers, whether or not Vettery receives some form of remuneration in connection with the transaction.

    Upon registering as an Employer, you will be assigned a Vettery team member who will be responsible for the day-to-day management of your Employer account (an “Account Partner”). Employers will be able to view the collection of Candidate profiles on www.vettery.com/candidates (the “Showcase”). If you would like to obtain additional information about a specific Candidate in the Showcase, you can do so by contacting your Account Partner. If you are interested in initiating contact with a particular Candidate in the Showcase, you will be able to initiate the contact by sending an interview request to the Candidate through the Services (each, an “Interview Request”). Your interaction with a Candidate may result in an offer for employment (the “Job Offer”). Candidates may, in their sole discretion, accept or reject an Interview Request and/or a Job Offer. Employers who wish to obtain our Services on a subscription basis may do so by entering into our Subscription Agreement. You may contact your Account Partner if you wish to obtain our Services on a subscription basis.
