It is very unlikely that a candidate sourced through Ten2Two won’t work out as we work closely with you to ensure the best match possible. However, should things not work out, we offer a sliding scale rebate of fees. Give us a call if you’d like to know more.
Unfortunately we don’t work on ‘commission only roles’.
