External recruitment firms are an important component of our talent acquisition strategy at Vertex; we value the partnerships built with our vendors. As a policy, we do not accept unsolicited resumes from external recruitment firms.  All resumes submitted by external recruitment firms must be submitted through our applicant tracking system and all correspondence should be directed to a contact within Talent Acquisition; engagement with external firms requires that a signed Vertex Employment Agency agreement be on file. External agency submissions that are sent to any employee or hiring manager, outside of the outlined process, will be deemed unsolicited and no fee will be paid in the event that the candidate is hired. Credit will be attributed as a referral or hired through other means.

Our external recruitment partners should also be reminded to comply with all Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) guidelines.
