AGREED FEE STRUCTURE Salary

The Truffle Talent fee depends on the starting salary as shown in the table, unless otherwise agreed by a Director of Truffle, and will be applied to the annual starting salary.
The search fee is 25% of the annual starting salary, unless otherwise agreed by a Director of Truffle. The fee is payable in three stages, based on the anticipated salary of the candidate. (Should the successful candidate be placed on a higher or lower salary than was originally estimated, the final invoice will be adjusted accordingly). The fee is payable in three stages:
