In these terms of business:
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-seeker's suitability for the role.
These could include:
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.
We will not commence the provision of Services until the Services Agreement has been returned to us and confirmed by the Customer by way of signature, e-mail confirmation or provision of purchase order number.
In the case of Customers who purchase Services on terms that require pre-payment, Services will not commence until payment is received and cleared.
Any Customer can purchase Job Credits to upload job postings on the Website by contacting us .
One Job Credit is for a job posting that can be displayed for 28 days.
Our total liability to the Customer in respect of any Services, except for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, is limited to the total amount paid to us during the Contract Term for such Services.
Job adverts are purchased on a Job Credit basis.
The content and format of jobs posted on the Website must follow some rules. Their purpose is to ensure that users who search the site or the Website database get results which are presented as clearly and informatively as possible. You agree that we may, at our discretion and without liability to you, remove from the Website any advertisement which is posted in breach of these rules. The rules may change from time to time and you are advised to refer to them regularly.
The Rules are:
Advertisements which appear to discriminate on grounds of sex, race or disability are illegal and may result in proceedings being taken against both the advertiser and the publisher. Advertisements are accepted by us on the basis that the advertiser confirms that any requirement or qualification which may appear to discriminate illegally is in compliance with any exemption available under the relevant legislation. Notwithstanding this confirmation, if we nonetheless believe that an advertisement may be discriminatory we may at our discretion either amend the advertisement or remove it from the Website without liability to you to make any refund of amounts paid or due to be paid in respect of the posting or otherwise and will inform you accordingly.
You agree to deal fairly and professionally with individuals who may respond to an advertisement you have posted and not do anything which may bring us into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against us arising from your breach of this obligation or any other of these terms and conditions.
We do not guarantee any response to your advertisement or that responses will be from individuals suitable for the job advertised. It is your responsibility to carry out such checks and procedures as are necessary to ensure that candidates are suitable for the job advertised and have the required qualifications and personal characteristics.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the appropriate equipment and are connected to the appropriate services to enable you to post jobs to the Website.
It is the customer’s responsibility to protect their computers against any viruses and malware.
Vacancies you post on the Website may also appear on third party recruitment websites pursuant to agreements from time to time between us and the proprietors of such web sites.
The material you are entitled to receive from the candidate database is determined by the product you have purchased from us. On receipt of this material you may:

You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against us arising from your breach of this obligation or any other of these terms and conditions.
For the sake of clarity and avoidance of doubt, the Customer acknowledges that it is acting as a data controller for the purpose of current data protection legislation in connection with any personal data it obtains in the provision of Services by us. It is the Customer’s responsibility to comply with its obligations as a data controller and to satisfy themselves of the legal grounds for processing any personal data.
We acknowledge that we will act as a data controller for the purposes of current data protection legislation and we will comply with our legal obligations in the provision of Services.
These terms and conditions apply to all advertising campaigns ('Campaigns') and other material accepted by us for display on any of our websites. By placing any such material, you accept these terms and conditions as principal, even if you are acting as agent or buyer for the third-party advertiser.
The customer may terminate the provision of services under any order form by no fewer than 30 days’ notice to expire at the end of a contract month. Termination by the customer before the end of the contract term may, at our discretion, result in loss of discounts agreed for the entire contract term.

You are responsible for the content of material supplied by you, for ensuring that you have the right to supply it to us and that it complies with all relevant legislation and codes of practice. If we receive complaints about any material or its content we may, at our discretion, remove the material from display without reference or liability to you. You will indemnify us against any claim that the material infringes the intellectual property rights or other rights of others or is defamatory or otherwise offensive.
You are also responsible for fulfilling and dealing with any orders or enquiries relating to the goods or services to which a Campaign relates and you will indemnify and hold us harmless accordingly.
Your sole remedy if we, or our third-party subcontractors who may host and serve Campaigns from time to time, make an error in displaying any Campaign is the cost of re-running the relevant Campaign.
Neither we, nor our subcontractors, shall be liable in any circumstances for any loss of profit or business. We shall, additionally, have no liability for failure to display the Campaign caused by circumstances outside our control.
