Employment Agencies and Employment Business
Candidates and recruiters need to be aware that this job board operates as a venue only and does not introduce or supply Candidates to recruiters (or vice versa). This means that we do not:
- obtain sufficient information for potential recruiters to select a suitable Candidate for the position which the recruiter seeks to fill;
- obtain confirmation of the identity of a Candidate or that they have the experience, training, qualifications or authorization to work in the position to be filled or that they wish to undertake the role to be filled;
- take any steps to ensure the Candidate and recruiter are each aware of any requirement imposed by law or otherwise which must be satisfied by either of them to permit the Candidate to fulfill the position to be filled;
- take any steps to ensure that it would not be detrimental to the interests of the Candidate or the recruiter for the Candidate to fulfill the position to be fulfilled;
- give any indication to recruiters whether Candidates are unsuitable (or suitable) for any position to be filled in any circumstances;
- propose Candidates to recruiters or provide any information about them;
- take up any references in relation to a Candidate; or
- make any arrangements for accommodation of Candidates.
Since we are only a venue and do not propose or introduce Candidates to recruiters or vice versa, it is recommended that, if you are a jobseeker you undertake the steps set out in applicable law to ensure your suitability for the role advertised or, if you are a recruiter, to ensure a Candidate’s suitability for the role.
These could include:
1. If you are a Candidate; checking the identity of the recruiter and the nature of its business, the commencement date and duration of the position, the position to be filled including type of work, location, hours and risks to health and safety, experience, training, qualifications and authorization which the recruiter considers necessary or are required by law or otherwise to undertake the position, whether any expenses are payable by you as a Candidate or whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for you to satisfy before taking up a position.
2. If you are a recruiter; checking the identity of the Candidate and that the Candidate has the experience, training, qualifications and authorization required by law or otherwise for the position and whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for you, as the recruiter, to meet to enable a Candidate to take up a position.
In addition, where professional qualifications are required or where Candidates are to work with vulnerable persons or children, you should obtain copies of the relevant qualifications or authorization, obtain at least two references from people who are not relatives of the Candidate and undertake a criminal records bureau check of the Candidate.
Any searching or screening tools provided by us for use in your assessment of the suitability or otherwise of any particular candidate or advertised vacancy are to assist you in taking these steps, but are not intended as a substitute.
We may make Changes to these Terms
We amend these Candidate Terms from time to time. Every time you wish to use the Site, please check these Candidate Terms to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time.
Please view the “Effective from” date at the top of these terms to see when it was last revised.
