Working with outside recruiters

The DCRI does partner with its approved search vendors for specific needs. Regardless of past practice, all resumes submitted by search firms to any employee at the DCRI via-email, the Internet, or directly to hiring managers at the DCRI in any form without a valid written search agreement in place for that position will be deemed the sole property of the DCRI, and no fee will be paid in the event the candidate is hired by the DCRI as a result of the referral or through other means.

Direct contact with DCRI staff to solicit or present candidates is not appropriate and those calls should be directed to Human Resources. Search firms are essential to the recruitment and staffing efforts at the DCRI and we value the partnerships we have built with our approved vendors. For this reason, the DCRI has established and regularly maintains a preferred vendor list. Please note that even preferred vendors need to have a written and signed search agreement at the DCRI in place for the specific position in order for a fee to be paid for any candidate referrals.
