Consultants are executive search professionals who offer to perform executive search services, or other relevant services, on a retainer basis to prospective clients. Consultants are not employees of Avollon. Executive search consultants are employees of independent executive search companies.
The fees may vary from assignment to assignment. The fee structure for the services is available on the platform. The actual fee will be specified to the client before signing an agreement. The client will not be bound by any fees other than those specified in the agreement.
Avollon does not render or charge for executive search services. Avollon may charge the executive search consultant a service and transaction fee for each assignment invoiced and paid over the platform in exchange for creating, hosting, maintaining and providing the service.
Soliciting or processing payment outside of Avollon is prohibited for the safety and security of all Avollon Users. If a client or executive search consultant solicits work to be done and paid outside of the Avollon platform, please report this immediately to Avollon.
Avollon does not recommend one specific executive search consultants to clients. Avollon merely makes its services available to enable relevant executive search consultants to do so themselves. Therefore, Avollon does not charge a fee when a consultant finds a suitable client or finds an assignment. However, clients and consultants are obligated to use the Site to connect and sign agreements and organize invoicing and payments for their work together, after identifying each other through the Site.
Avollon only charges a service fee when a client and the executive search consultants company pays and receives payment through the site.

Avollon will terminate a consultant’s access to and use of the Site if such consultant is found to be accepting payments outside of the service for clients arising out of the service.
