The Client undertakes to provide a contract of employment upon engagement of a candidate and is fully responsible for the candidate's Tax and National Insurance contributions, obtaining work permits and satisfying any medical requirements or qualifications as required by law.
The Client is requested to reimburse all reasonable travelling expenses to the interview upon presentation of receipt.
