Our Terms are payment in full upon receipt unless otherwise agreed or stated.

All advertised Services prices exclude VAT. Late payment for Services is liable to attract interest, accruing at a rate of 8% above NatWest Plc’s base rate at the time; Late payment for Services is also liable to attract a £100, plus VAT, administration charge. Payment of Services is to be made in accordance with the details outlined before engagement.
Event bookings and payments may at times necessitate the utilisation of third party registration software who are subject to their own terms which can be found on their sites at the time of booking.
Should for any reason bookings not be made through registration software, a written confirmation to book your position will be deemed official and be subject to the same cancellation and refund policy as below.
1.a Changing Delegates
If circumstances change and the original delegate can no longer attend, we are very happy for you to send someone else – please phone us to let us know and we will amend our records. Note we require at least 24 hours prior to the start of the event for any changes. Changes made within this time will incur no additional charge.
1.b Cancellations/Transfers Policy
We realise that sometimes situations arise that mean you will have to cancel your place. We have some simple criteria we apply in these circumstances – 14 working days before event commencement will incur no additional charge and refunds or exchanges available. Unfortunately if you are cancelling within the 14 working days prior to the event date we will need to charge you the full fee. If you do need to cancel or transfer then make sure you put it in writing to us – either by email or letter, however the date we receive your communication is the date we use as the notification date.

We make every possible attempt to run courses and events, however we do reserve the right to cancel any course/event at any time. Unfortunately, we cannot be held liable for any costs incurred by delegates.

In the unlikely event of the programme being cancelled by The In-house Recruitment Network, a full refund will be made. In the event of the cancellation being due to causes outside of our control, refunds will be looked at on an individual event basis. Liability will be limited to the amount of the fee paid by the delegate.
Please note, our events are exclusively for In-house Recruiters and HR Professionals and we therefore reserve the right to cancel any registration/purchase of tickets as a result. Any cancellation will be subject to full refund. Delegates should advise of any special access requirements at the time of registration.
