Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003

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

  • obtain sufficient information for potential recruiters to  select a suitable work-seeker for the position which the recruiter  seeks to fill;
  • obtain confirmation of the identity of a work-seeker 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 work-seeker and recruiter are  each aware of any requirement imposed by law or otherwise which must be  satisfied by either of them to permit the work-seeker to fulfil the  position to be filled;
  • take any steps to ensure that it would not be detrimental to  the interests of the work-seeker or the recruiter for the work-seeker  to fulfil the position to be fulfilled;
  • give any indication to recruiters whether work-seekers are  unsuitable (or suitable) for any position to be filled in any  circumstances;
  • propose work-seekers to recruiters or provide any information about them.
  • take up any references in relation to a work-seeker; or
  • make any arrangements for accommodation of work-seekers.

The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Business  Regulations 2003 (the "Regulations") seek to ensure that work-seekers  are only proposed by employment agencies for roles for which they are  properly qualified and that recruiters are only offered work-seekers  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 work-seekers to recruiters or  vice versa, it is recommended that, if you are a work-seeker 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 work-seekers suitability for the role.

These could include:

  • If you are a work-seeker; 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 work-seeker  or whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for  you to satisfy before taking up a position.
  • If you are a recruiter; checking the identity of the  work-seeker and that the work-seeker 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 work-seeker to  take up a position.
  • In addition, where professional qualifications are required  or where work-seekers 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 work-seeker and undertake a criminal records bureau  check of the work-seeker. 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.

Governing Law

These Terms and Conditions shall be  interpreted in accordance with British law and all disputes shall be  decided by the exclusive jurisdiction of the British Courts.
