Vettery is an online recruiting marketplace. We serve as intermediary between candidates and employers, who are the sole parties involved in any contract of employment. Vettery 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.
No contractual obligations are created for either the candidate or the employer through the use of the Service. The candidate has no obligation to accept any Interview Request or Job Offer. No step within the Engagement shall be considered legally binding.
Any information uploaded by candidates on the Site will be stored by Vettery in our systems.
Once registered on the Site, candidates will be invited to be included in the Roundup, which is sent out to employers on a regular basis. Candidates must accept their invitation in order to be included in the Roundup.
During the Showcase, candidates’ information uploaded will be visible and accessible by employers.
Candidates’ information will remain visible to employers while they are in the showcase.
During the Showcase, the parties can begin the Engagement. Employers can also ask for additional information on any of the profiles included in the current Roundup by speaking to their Account Partner.
The Engagement between the parties may result in employers extending one or more Job Offers to candidates. In the event that a Job Offer is signed, the employer is subject to success fee payment as described in Section 6.
In agreeing to use our Service, both candidates and employers agree and undertake:
that no Active Recruiting Process (defined as continuous direct, back and forth communication, in an active recruiting or hiring context where a decision to put a candidate on hold or reject has not been made) has been in place between the employer and the candidate for the 90 days prior to the beginning of the Engagement;
that they shall carry on the Engagement by using exclusively our Site. Further communication may take place outside of our Site after the Invitation is sent out and accepted;
to promptly inform us if a Job Offer is signed, providing us with either a Job Acceptance Form or a signed Job Offer by both parties;
to give prompt notice if employment is not started following agreed Job Offer or if employment is terminated within the first 90 days from the Start Date (defined as the start date of employment between the candidate and the employer).
Candidates also agree to notify us as soon as a Job Offer is received, including details on beginning of employment, duration and compensation.
Registration and use of our Service is free for candidates.
Candidates are required to notify us in case they accept a Job Offer. Job Offers can be in the form of:
Job Offer, for an indefinite or fixed term;
Contractor Offer, for an indefinite or fixed term;
Job Offer or a Contractor Engagement during or within twelve (12) months after termination of an Internship of any duration, from an employer who identified the candidate through the use of our Site or Service;

Candidates will receive a Signing Bonus for:
Job Offers for full time employment of an indefinite term. The candidate will receive a discretionary bonus not later than 120 days after the Start Date;
Contractor Offers of an indefinite or fixed term. The candidate will receive a discretionary bonus not later than 120 days after the completion date of a Contractor Engagement that (the “Completion Date”) only for Contractor Engagements that are at least 500 hours of billable time. A candidate is only eligible to receive one Contractor Payment per employer;
Covered Offer resulting from a Contractor Engagement of less than 500 billable hours.
If you are a candidate who is using our Site and Service, you agree that:
if you receive a Covered Offer, you shall promptly notify Vettery of your Start Date and the key terms of such Covered Offer (and notify Vettery promptly should that Start Date or offer terms change at any time), by providing Vettery with:
a copy of a fully executed Covered Offer, or
executing a document between employer, Vettery and candidate that states material employment terms, including, among other things, Start Date and compensation, promptly upon the signing of a Covered Job Offer letter between you and the employer (the “Effective Date”), as requested by Vettery and
you will promptly notify Vettery after termination of your employment as an employee, intern, coop employee, consultant or contractor (“Employment”) in the event that
an employer terminates your Employment based on unsatisfactory performance within ninety (90) days of the date on which your Employment commenced, or
you voluntarily terminate your Employment within ninety (90) days of the date on which your Employment commenced. In the event that before the Start Date, either employer or candidate elect not to begin the employment relationship contemplated by the Covered Offer, candidate shall promptly notify Vettery. We reserve the right to cancel the Signing Bonus if not already administered.
All candidates using the Vettery site appoint Vettery as their exclusive agent to represent the candidate with respect to employers and employment opportunities brought to the candidate through the Vettery platform. Candidates waive the right to appoint any person or entity other than Vettery to represent the candidate with respect to employers and employment opportunities brought to the candidate through the Vettery platform.
Once we have accepted the registration of an Employer, the Employer will be able to make Requests and contact (through the Service) Prospective Employees listed on our Site and Service. If a Prospective Employee identified through use of our Service accepts a Job Offer within twelve (12) months of the date on which the Employer first viewed the Prospective Employee on the Site, the Employer will be charged a Success Fee. Upon successful signing of a Job Offer, the employer shall pay us a one-off Success Fee, which equals 15% of the employee’s first year base salary (“Upfront Fee”) to be paid within 30 days of the candidate’s start date.
In the case of a Contractor Engagement, the Employer shall pay a fee equal to 30% of the Contractor’s direct labor. If a Contractor Engagement results in the Contractor accepting a Covered Offer, the Employer shall pay a Success Fee, in accordance with the below table and according to traditional terms of payment (thirty days after the Start Date)
|Hours Worked for Employer||Conversion Fee|
|Less than 550 hours||15%|
|551 - 1100 hours||Conversion Fee|
|More than 1100 hours no fee||No Fee|
Refund of the Upfront Fee shall be granted in the event that:
an employer hires a candidate and terminates the candidate’s employment based on unsatisfactory performance within ninety (90) days of the Start Date;
a candidate voluntarily terminates his or her employment within ninety (90) days of the Start Date;
Candidate does not start employment because either the employer or the candidate elects not to begin the employment relationship contemplated in the Job Offer. Upon written receipt and confirmation of such information, Vettery will fully refund to the employer the Upfront Fee related to the terminating candidate.
No Fee shall be due to Vettery where an employer can prove that a candidate was known to the employer and was being considered for employment prior to the employer viewing the candidate on the Site (Active Recruiting Process). Vettery reserves the right to request any documentation to evidence that the candidate was known to the employer. This clause shall not apply where the employer initiates the Engagement through the Site. In such case, Vettery shall not be considered liable to candidates for paying the Signing Bonus.
If a candidate fails to notify Vettery of a signed and executed Job Offer, or does not act in good faith regarding a signed and executed Job Offer and Vettery becomes aware of it, the candidate shall not be entitled to the payment of any Signing Bonus.
If (a) neither the employer nor the candidate discloses to Vettery that the employer hired the candidate (regardless of whether the candidate accepted or declined an interview request through the Vettery platform), (b) the candidate was introduced to the employer or the employment opportunity with the employer through the Vettery platform, and (c) Vettery subsequently discovers that the candidate was employed by the employer, then in lieu of the 15% Success Fee described in Section 6.05 above, the employer shall pay Vettery a fee equal to 25% of the candidate’s 1st year base salary, and Vettery may, in its sole discretion, terminate the employer’s account.
