It is agreed that there is no representation, warranty, collateral agreement or condition affecting this agreement except as expressed in it. Furthermore, it is agreed that this written instrument embodies the entire agreement of the parties except as expressly set out in this instrument. The Candidate acknowledges having read, understood and agreed to the terms and conditions of this agreement which are set forth in this agreement.

  1. INTRODUCTION

An introduction is officially made when the TNB notifies the candidate of any of the details to a position that has become available including the contact details of the family. After this time the candidate must not contact the family in question without the knowledge of the TNB for any reason. If an offer of employment is accepted by the candidate as a result of an introduction by the TNB the candidate must inform the TNB immediately.  The candidate must never accept an offer of employment, contract or booking of any nature directly from a family/client or through any other employment/nanny agency or third party after being introduced through the TNB. This will result in legal proceeding being taken by the TNB against the candidate. 

The candidate must also never accept an offer of employment, booking or business opportunity of any kind from any third party or family connected or introduced by the client/family.

In the case of a temporary contract booking, the candidate must always inform the TNB immediately if the client offers a repeat booking or bookings at a later date.

 

Failure to adhere with the above will result in agency fees being applied to both the candidate and the client and all registrations will be cancelled.
