fully aware of the contractual relationship that you are signing up to and
confident in the support that you will receive whilst working in partnership
with our team. Of course, you will be accepting certain
obligations and we want to ensure that there is nothing in the 'small print' to
catch you out, and that there are no surprises waiting around the corner.
