Notice to Recruiters and Staffing Agencies
Cargill, Inc. and its affiliates and subsidiaries ("Cargill") have an internal recruiting department. Cargill may supplement that internal capability from time to time with assistance from temporary staffing agencies, placement services, and professional recruiters ("Agency"). Agencies are hereby specifically directed NOT to contact Cargill employees directly in an attempt to present candidates – Cargill's recruiting team or other authorized Cargill personnel must present ALL candidates to hiring managers.
To protect the interests of all parties, Cargill will not accept unsolicited resumes from any source other than directly from a candidate. Any unsolicited resumes sent to Cargill, including unsolicited resumes sent to a Cargill mailing address, fax machine or email address, directly to Cargill employees, or to Cargill's resume database will be considered Cargill property. Cargill will NOT pay a fee for any placement resulting from the receipt of an unsolicited resume. Cargill will consider any candidate for whom an Agency has submitted an unsolicited resume to have been referred by the Agency free of any charges or fees.
Agency must obtain advance written approval from Cargill's recruiting function to submit resumes, and then only in conjunction with a valid fully-executed contract for service and in response to a specific job opening. Cargill will not pay a fee to any Agency that does not have such agreement in place.
Agency agreements will only be valid if in writing and signed by an officer of Cargill or his or her designee. No other Cargill employee is authorized to bind Cargill to any agreement regarding the placement of candidates by Agencies. Cargill hereby specifically rejects, and denies any liability under, any agreement purporting to be accepted based on negative consent, negotiation with a candidate, performance, or any means other than the signature of a Cargill officer.
