Without registration and the creation of an account you may use Services that are available on our website without registration. Particularly you can browse and apply for jobs that are published on the Website.

7.3 Job Alerts
You can subscribe to Job Alerts via our Platforms. That means you will receive Job Alerts about listings which match your criteria. You can create Job Alerts manually which match a set of criteria that has been defined by you in advance. If you also register, or have registered, for an account, you can manage the Job Alerts within your account.

7.4 Your Profile
At registration, you will create a Jobseeker Profile (“Jobseeker Profile”), which will consist of information about you regarding your location, work experience and skills. It will also keep a record of your activity on the Platforms. 

When a Client searches for Jobseekers on the Platforms, only basic information (your job title, location, type of work you are looking for, desired salary, industry experience and top five skills) will initially be displayed. The Jobseeker will be asked for consent for further data to be revealed prior to any further Jobseeker data being provided to the Client. Your most recent employer and experience will be hidden until you provide consent which will be requested in your Jobseeker account. Via your Jobseeker account, you may also pre-emptively block certain companies from viewing you at all. 
You can use your Profile to apply to job offers that are published on the Platforms. Should you apply directly for a position, you will be asked to attach your CV and this will be sent, along with your contact details, to the Client. The Client will then have access to your Profile. We will not store a copy of your CV. We will store the date of your last activity on the Platforms, which will be the date you most recently updated your profile or CV or the date you last applied for jobs using the Services.

If you choose to create a Jobseeker Profile with us, then we will keep your data on file until you ask us to delete your account from our database or when we are reasonably required to do so under GDPR (whichever the earlier).

10. Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003

Jobseekers and Clients need to be aware that this job board operates as a venue only and does not introduce or supply Jobseekers to Clients (or vice versa). This means that we do not:

• obtain sufficient information for potential employers/recruiters to select a suitable Jobseeker for the position which the Client seeks to fill;
• obtain confirmation of the identity of a Jobseeker or that they have the experience, training, qualifications or authorisation 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 Jobseeker and Client are each aware of any requirement imposed by law or otherwise which must be satisfied by either of them to permit the Jobseeker to fulfil the position to be filled;
• take any steps to ensure that it would not be detrimental to the interests of the Jobseeker or the Client for the Jobseeker to fulfil the position to be fulfilled;
• give any indication to Clients whether Jobseekers are unsuitable (or suitable) for any position to be filled in any circumstances other than basic Profile screening;
• propose Jobseekers to Clients or provide any information about them.
• take up any references in relation to a Jobseeker; or,
• make any arrangements for accommodation of Jobseekers.

The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003 (the “Regulations”) seek to ensure that Jobseekers are only proposed by employment agencies for roles for which they are properly qualified and that recruiters are only offered Jobseekers who have the appropriate levels of experience, training, qualifications and authorisation for the position to be filled. Since we are only a venue and do not propose or introduce Jobseekers to recruiters or vice versa, it is recommended that, if you are a Jobseeker you undertake the steps set out in the Regulations to ensure your suitability for the role advertised or, if you are a recruiter, to ensure a Jobseeker’s suitability for the role.

These could include:
1. If you are a Jobseeker; 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 authorisation 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 Jobseeker 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 Jobseeker and that the Jobseeker has the experience, training, qualifications and authorisation 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 Jobseeker to take up a position.
In addition, where professional qualifications are required or where Jobseekers are to work with vulnerable persons or children, you should obtain copies of the relevant qualifications or authorisation, obtain at least two references from people who are not relatives of the Jobseeker and undertake a criminal records bureau check of the Jobseeker. For more details of how to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, visit the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) website.

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 amend these Jobseeker Terms from time to time. These Jobseeker Terms are effective from 16th March 2021. You will be required to review and accept any updated Jobseeker Terms on the Platforms as and when they are updated from time to time if you wish to continue using the Platforms.
