I am happy to wait.
Thank you for your response.
I agree that the term 'candidate' applies to perm or interim candidates. However my concerns are around the word 'base' in the contract (ie 'A fee of 25% of the first year’s base compensation of the appointed candidate').
My understanding of interims in that they usually get paid a daily rate (ie £900/day). I am looking to argue that they never get paid a 'base' and therefore this contract does not apply to Interims (ie they never get paid terms along the lines of '£50,000 for 6 months').
Am I right in assuming that Interims dont ever get paid a base?
Thank you. One last point of clarification- Does 'Base Salary' imply that its a permanent employee rather that a contractor/interim by virtue of the word 'salary'?
