4. Employment Agencies and Job Seekers - be aware we are venue to meet and not a facilitator to introduce

Job seekers 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 job-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 job-seeker; or
  • make any arrangements for accommodation of job/work-seekers.

5. The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employers must ensure that job-seekers are only proposed by employment agencies for roles for which they are properly qualified and that recruiters are only offered job-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 job-seekers to recruiters or vice versa, it is recommended that, if you are a job-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  job/work-seeker's suitability for the role.

These could include:

  1. If you are a job-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.
  2. If you are a recruiter; checking the identity of the job-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 job-seeker and undertake a criminal records bureau check of the work-seeker. For more details of how to undertake a criminal records bureau check, please 

    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.
