Clients need to be confident that information disclosed to Spadeworkz during the course of an assignment will remain confidential. To ensure that this is the case:

  • If there is a possible conflict of interest between clients or potential clients, it will be immediately disclosed to both parties. 

  • Spadeworkz professionals will not discuss client matters in a public place nor disclose client information to third parties. 

  • Spadeworkz will maintain the security of client papers and communications.

Clients need to be kept informed as to progress on their assignment.

  • Prospects and clients will be updated continuously as required on the status of their search and informed immediately if there are any obstacles or issues impairing Spadeworkz's delivery of the search.

Clients need to be clear that we represent their interests:

  • Spadeworkz will not send unsolicited resumes to clients.

  • In salary negotiations, we need to represent the client's best interests and be fair to the candidate.

  • Spadeworkz will not offer the same candidate to two clients at the same time (parallel processing). 

Clients need to be clear that their name will not be used disadvantageously within the client's company with other clients or candidates:

  • Spadeworkz will not disclose to other clients or potential clients or in publicity material that they are or have conducted searches for that client without the permission of the client.

  • Spadeworkz will not disclose the name of a client to a candidate until the client agrees this is appropriate. 

Clients need to be confident in the quality of work delivered and the fit of the candidate with the client organization:

  • To support this, Spadeworkz offers a minimum guarantee that if the appointed candidate leaves the client without reasonable cause within at least six months of joining, then Spadeworkz will conduct a second search at no fee. Spadeworkz offices are free to exceed this minimum.

Therefore, we have a strong commitment to diversity that includes working diligently to provide all clients a diverse, qualified slate of candidates on every engagement. Under no circumstance will we tolerate or engage in discriminatory activity
