KCI Holdings, KCI Technologies, Inc., KCI Construction Services (DBA Communications Infrastructure) and all other affiliates and subsidiaries (“KCI”) have an internal recruiting department that may occasionally obtain assistance from temporary staffing agencies, placement services, and professional recruiters (“External Servicers”). External Servicers are hereby specifically directed NOT to contact KCI employees directly to present candidates. KCI’s recruiting team or other authorized KCI personnel must present ALL candidates to hiring managers.
To protect the interests of all parties, KCI will not accept unsolicited resumes from any source other than directly from a candidate. Any unsolicited resumes sent to KCI, including unsolicited resumes sent to a KCI mailing address, fax machine or email address, directly to KCI employees, or to KCI’s resume database will be considered KCI property. KCI will NOT pay a fee for any placement resulting from the receipt of an unsolicited resume. KCI will consider any candidate for whom an External Servicer has submitted an unsolicited resume to have been referred by the External Servicer free of any charges or fees.
An External Servicer must obtain advance written approval from KCI’s recruiting or HR function to submit resumes, and then only in conjunction with a valid contract for service and in response to a specific job opening. KCI will not pay a fee to any External Servicer that does not have a contract in place. KCI 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 KCI officer.
