Employment

  1. The Perfect Childcare Company acts as an introductory agency for the Introduction of workers to be directly employed by the Client.
  2. The Client will provide The Perfect Childcare Company with details of the position it offers, including the type of work, hours of work,
    duration of employment, salary, and any requirements as to experience and qualifications. The Perfect Childcare Company will use its
    reasonable endeavours to ensure the suitability of the Childcare worker Introduced to the Client based on these details provided, by
    obtaining confirmation of the Childcare worker’s identity, experience, and any training qualifications which the Client considers necessary.
    The Perfect Childcare Company will perform an enhanced DBS check, screening and reference investigation on all Childcare workers.
    Notwithstanding this, the Client should take the time to thoroughly interview the candidates, give proper consideration to their employment
    history and satisfy itself as to the suitability of the Childcare Worker. The final responsibility and final decision as to whether such a Childcare
    worker should be engaged by the Client for a Permanent or Temporary Placement is that of the Client. There is no guarantee, however, that
    a suitable Childcare worker will be found.
  3. Clients undertake to provide notification to The Perfect Childcare Company of any offer of Engagement made to a Childcare worker
    Introduced by The Perfect Childcare Company within 5 days of such offer being made. This notification must be in writing and should include
    details of the Childcare Worker’s full name, the proposed start date of employment and the hours and duration of the PA’s Engagement.
  4. The Client will provide a contract of employment to the Childcare worker and is responsible for the Childcare worker’s tax and National
    Insurance contributions where applicable, obtaining work permits and satisfying any medical requirements or qualifications required under
    UK law.
  5. Where a Childcare worker has been Introduced and interviewed by the Client but is not made an offer of Engagement by the Client, the
    Client shall not Engage with the Childcare worker for a period of at least 6 months following the Introduction.
    Fees
  6. The Introduction Fee will become payable to The Perfect Childcare Company immediately upon the acceptance by the Childcare worker of
    an offer of Engagement by the Client to the Childcare worker following an Introduction.
  7. The Introduction Fee charged for the Introduction of any Childcare worker is applicable to one Engagement only. For additional Childcare
    workers Introduced by The Perfect Childcare Company and Engaged by the Client, a further Fee will be charged.
  8. The Perfect Childcare Company’s entitlement to the Fee shall not be affected if The Perfect Childcare Company provides details on a
    Childcare worker to a Client and the Client subsequently receives details of the same Childcare worker from any third party, including another
    agency or the Childcare Worker themselves.
  9. In the event that the Childcare worker withdraws his or her acceptance of the job offer due to unreasonable delay by the Client in providing
    a contract of employment to the Childcare worker, the Client shall still be liable for the full Introduction Fee.
  10. If the Childcare worker leaves employment as a result of the Client’s failure to comply with the agreed hours, salary and duties that were
    previously agreed between the Childcare worker and the Client or the working conditions or treatment of the Childcare worker are
    unreasonable, the full Introduction Fee will remain payable to The Perfect Childcare Company.
  11. The Client agrees to pay the Introduction Fee to The Perfect Childcare Company within 7 days of the Childcare Worker’s acceptance of the
    Engagement. Payment must be made on time and in full. Late payment of fees will incur a surcharge of 5% per month.
  12. In certain circumstances, fees may be paid in 2 instalments. Payment in this way must be agreed with The Perfect Childcare Company in
    writing.
  13. The Client shall be liable to The Perfect PA for a cancellation fee of £190 of the agreed Introduction Fee in the event that (a) the Client
    interviews a candidate(s) and subsequently decides to withdraw from the Introduction process; or (b) an offer of Engagement is made to
    and accepted by the Childcare Worker and, prior to commencement of employment, the Client withdraws the offer. This cancellation fee
    includes the non-refundable deposit of £90 which is payable upon registration.
    Confidentiality
  14. All communications, whether written or verbal, between the Childcare worker, Client and The Perfect Childcare Company (including
    information relating to Introductions) shall be confidential. The Client undertakes not to disclose any confidential information to third parties
    without prior written permission from The Perfect Childcare Company. Information collected by The Perfect Childcare Company will be kept
    securely in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Data Protection Act 2018. Any breach of this undertaking resulting in the
    Engagement of a Childcare worker by a third party renders the Client liable for full payment of The Perfect Childcare Company’s Introduction
    Fee and the provisions of the Replacement in clauses 18 to 21 inclusive shall not apply. Such liability for payment of the Fee shall be in
    addition to any other fees payable by the Client.
    Replacements and refunds
  15. The Client will be entitled to a Replacement where a Childcare worker’s contract has been terminated by the Client due to the unsuitability
    of the Childcare worker, provided the Client notifies The Perfect Childcare Company in writing within 5 days of terminating the Childcare
    worker’s employment, giving the reasons for termination and The Perfect Childcare Company is in agreement. A Replacement will be offered
    at the following costs:
    a) if the contract with the Childcare worker is terminated within the first month of commencement of employment – free of charge;
    b) if the contract with the Childcare worker is terminated between 1 and 3 months after commencement of employment – 50% of the
    applicable Introduction Fee;

    order to cover against any losses.
