Notice to recruiters and staffing agencies

Trinseo S.A. and its affiliates (collectively "Trinseo") have an internal recruiting department. Trinseo may supplement that internal capability from time to time with assistance from temporary staffing agencies, placement services, and professional recruiters (collectively "Agency"). Agencies are specifically directed NOT to contact Trinseo employees directly in an attempt to present candidates. Trinseo’s recruiting team or other authorized Trinseo personnel must present ALL candidates to hiring managers.

To protect the interests of all parties, Trinseo will not accept unsolicited resumes from any source other than directly from a candidate. Any unsolicited resumes sent to Trinseo, including unsolicited resumes sent to a Trinseo mailing address, fax machine or email address, directly to Trinseo employees, or to Trinseo's resume database will be considered Trinseo property. Trinseo will NOT pay a fee for any placement resulting from the receipt of an unsolicited resume. Trinseo will consider any candidate for whom an Agency has submitted an unsolicited resume to have been referred by the Agency free of any charges or fees.

To receive fees, Agencies must obtain advance written approval from Trinseo's recruiting function to submit resumes, and then only in conjunction with a valid fully-executed contract for service and in response to a specific job opening. Trinseo will not pay a fee to any Agency that does not have such an agreement in place.

Agency agreements will only be valid if in writing, approved by Procurement and signed by an officer of Trinseo or his/her designee. No other Trinseo employee is authorized to bind Trinseo to any agreement regarding the placement of candidates by Agencies. Trinseo hereby specifically rejects, and denies any liability under, any agreement purporting to be accepted based on negative consent, negotiation with a candidate, performance, or any means other than the signature of a Trinseo officer or authorized person.
