The details of a Role as posted by the Recruiter such as job description, roles and responsibilities, salary, tenure, nature of employment will be visible on the Platform and the WisGen will have the ability to apply for such a Role on the Platform by submitting their interest/proposal (“Application”) on the Platform as sought by the Recruiter.
    • This Application once submitted on the Platform will be visible to the Recruiter (for the Roles listed by them). The Recruiter will have a right to choose/select a candidate/ WisGen who is best suited to its requirements. Upon acceptance of such Application by the Recruiter, a valid agreement will come in force between the Recruiter and WisGen. This agreement will be directly entered into between the Recruiter and WisGen and they will be solely responsible for the adherence to the terms and obligations contained therein.
    • WisdomCircle is not a party to the contracts entered into directly between WisGen and Recruiters, nor is WisdomCircle a recruitment agency, or an adviser. WisdomCircle is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any WisGen or Recruiter.

Wisdom Circle has the right to provide concession/discount to Recruiters on the Service Fee as per its own discretion.
    • The Recruiter agrees and acknowledges that the payment of the PlatformFee and Service Fee is mandatory, and any breach of this obligation will entitle WisdomCircle to terminate its relationship with the Recruiter as per the Terms and forfeit the amount of Platform Fee as paid by the Recruiters. Such nonpayment would result in a breach of these Terms, for which WisdomCircle will have the right to seek appropriate remedy in court of law.
    • If the Recruiters after appointment/engagement of the WisGen, are not satisfied with the performance of the WisGen, the Recruiters may terminate the services of such WisGen as per the terms of the agreement as entered between the Users. In such a scenario, WisdomCircle shall have no obligation towards the WisGen to enable them to find a suitable alternate Role or for any loss of income. On the other hand, WisdomCircle shall have no obligation towards the Recruiters to refund them the Platform Fee and the Service Fee for such a Role.
      In such a scenario, Wisdom Circle’s sole responsibility towards the Recruiter will be to relist that particular Role of the Recruiter on the Platform (without payment of any Platform Fee), to enable the Recruiter to select another WisGen as per its own requirement by following the steps as mentioned in Clause 7.1. WisdomCircle may, in case the Recruiter hires the WisGen at a higher compensation/salary, collect the additional Service Fee from the Recruiters.
      In case, the Recruiter is not satisfied or wants to terminate the services of the WisGen second time for the same Role, the Recruiter can proceed with the same as per the terms of the agreement between the Users. WisdomCircle in such a case shall not have any liability/responsibility towards the Recruiters and/or the WisGen.
