Such access to CV Database can also be provided through browser plugins or other software that we offer and which will allow our customers to access your CV if they visit certain social media websites.

If you choose to create a Profile with us, then we will keep your CV on file until you make a written request to delete your account from our Database.

We do not warrant or guarantee a minimum volume of storage capacity for your Profile.

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 jobseekers to recruiters (or vice versa). This means that we do not:

  1. obtain sufficient information for potential recruiters to select a suitable jobseeker for the position which the recruiter seeks to fill;
  2. obtain confirmation of the identity of a jobseeker 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;
  3. take any steps to ensure the jobseeker and recruiter are each aware of any requirement imposed by law or otherwise which must be satisfied by either of them to permit the jobseeker to fulfill the position to be filled;
  4. take any steps to ensure that it would not be detrimental to the interests of the jobseeker or the recruiter for the jobseeker to fulfill the position to be fulfilled;
  5. give any indication to recruiters whether jobseekers are unsuitable (or suitable) for any position to be filled in any circumstances;
  6. propose jobseekers to recruiters or provide any information about them.
  7. take up any references in relation to a jobseeker; or,
  8. make any arrangements for accommodation of jobseekers.

We are operating our carrier page under the impression that job seekers genuinely seeking for employment and interested in joining a company/s and employers seeking to recruit are genuinely having available vacancy/s and looking to find a suitable employee/s. Users with other intentions must not use the site unless the motive is clearly communicated to us and obtained written approval from us.    

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 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 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 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 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 authorization, obtain at least two references from people who are not relatives of the jobseeker and undertake a criminal records bureau check of the jobseeker.

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 the terms

We amend these terms from time to time without any prior notice. Every time you wish to use the Site, please check these terms to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time.

Safety or data usage

We take all measures within our limitation to safeguard information of our users. However, since we use third party suppliers and online service providers to publish and host this webpage we are unable to give you guarantee on data security; information breach may happen. Even though such events are highly unlikely, we strongly suggest all our users not to share highly confidential information through this site. You, as a user, must evaluate the level of confidentiality by yourself of the information you are sharing with the intended users. If you feel the confidentially level is high or sensitive in your own opinion, use a different medium to share the data or information.
