Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003
Job seekers and recruiters need to be aware that this job board operates as a venue only and does not introduce or supply job 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 job 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 job 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 job seeker to fulfil the position to be filled;
  • take any steps to ensure that it would not be detrimental to the interests of the job seeker or the recruiter for the job seeker to fulfil the position to be fulfilled;
  • give any indication to recruiters whether job seekers are unsuitable (or suitable) for any position to be filled in any circumstances;
  • propose job 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 seekers.

The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003 (the "Regulations") seek to 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 seeker's suitability for the role.

In these terms and conditions:
  1. 'Customer' means any person, company, organisation or firm which purchases Services from us;
  2. 'Order Form' means an order for Services on a form provided by us (in any format) and signed by a Customer;
  3. 'Services' means all recruitment products and services made available by us from time to time;
  4. 'Contract Month' means, in respect of any Order Form relating to the provision of Services for a specified period of months, the calendar month commencing on the start date specified in the Order Form and ending on the day before the same date in the next calendar month. For example, the calendar month commencing on 19 April and ending 18 May;
  5. 'Contract Term' means the full term specified in the Order Form.

We reserve the right to vary these terms and conditions from time to time. We will aim to give you reasonable notice in advance of implementing such changes by posting the revised terms and conditions on the web site and indicating the effective date that such updated terms and conditions will come into force (“Effective Date”). Where we deem the changes as significant we may also choose to email our registered users with the revised terms and conditions. The revised terms and conditions will be deemed to have been accepted by you if you continue to use the web site and our services after the Effective Date.

Commencement of Services
We will not commence the provision of Services pursuant to any Order Form until the Order Form has been returned to us, in a form approved by us and confirmed by the Customer by way of signature, e-mail confirmation or provision of purchase order number and, in the case of Customers who purchase Services on terms that require pre-payment, Services will not commence until payment is received and cleared.

Prices
Prices are as specified in the C21Jobs ratecard and are guaranteed for the period stated on the order form. Any discounts agreed are confidential and may not be disclosed by the customer.

A job posted on C21Jobs will remain live for 30 days or such shorter time as we agree with the Customer. Any extension of this time will be charged to the Customer as a new posting. Any jobs posted in addition to the agreed number of jobs per month will be charged at a price per job agreed with the customer at the time of the contract negotiation. If no price has been negotiated, a flat fee of £500 per job will be charged for each job over the agreed number. A single job is identified by its unique ID number. If a customer deletes a job and then either reposts it or posts another, this will be classed as two jobs.

If any Services to be used within any time period specified on the Order Form are not used within that period of time they may not be carried over into any subsequent period without our prior written consent. The Customer will be responsible for payment for any unused Services.

Payments
All prices exclude VAT. All invoices are payable within 30 days from invoice date. Late payment will entitle us to suspend provision of Services. Interest will be payable on late payments at the rate of 4% above Barclays Bank plc’s base lending rate from time to time until settlement or discharge of the debt.

Termination
Either party may terminate in writing the provision of Services if:
  1. the other party commits any material or persistent breach of any of these terms and conditions and have not remedied such breach within 14 days of notice specifying the breach and requiring that it be remedied, or;
  2. the other party becomes insolvent, ceases to trade or goes into liquidation

Upon termination of the provision of Services for any reason:
  1. the Customer shall immediately cease using the Services and permanently delete any access passwords for the Services; and
  2. the Customer shall immediately pay all outstanding sums due to the C21Jobs under the Contract; and
  3. the Customer acknowledges and agrees that it shall not be entitled to a refund of any sums paid in advance to C21Jobs.
  4. 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.

License to use Customer's name, trademarks and logos
The Customer agrees that C21Jobs may use the Customer's name, trademarks and logos (“IP-Rights”) for the purposes of providing the Services.

Additionally the Customer agrees that C21Jobs may mention the Customer as a reference customer in marketing materials (such as eg. but not limited to websites and brochures).

Limitation of liability
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 or £10,000, whichever is the greater.

Job advertising
Job adverts go live only once payment confirmation has been received by C21Jobs. You will be notified by email when your job adverts have gone live on C21Jobs.

Site rules
We have rules regarding the content and format of jobs posted on C21Jobs. Their purpose is to ensure that users who search the site or 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 C21Jobs any advert 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:
  • No duplicating of jobs at the expense of other clients' jobs.
  • No gratuitous use of keywords in job descriptions or job titles. Gratuitous means deliberately inserting words, strings of words, or repeating job titles, with the intention of influencing position in the results listing, or increasing the number of page views.
  • Job adverts placed on C21Jobs must be for genuine vacancies only, and not for other products or services, either relating to or unrelated to recruitment including, but not limited to, affiliate schemes, pyramid selling schemes or any other so called 'business opportunity'.
  • URLs or email links (live or text only) are not permitted in the body copy of the job description page. Email links are permitted from the 'send an email' link and url linking is permitted from the 'apply online' link.
  • Any adverts that uses the name or logo of the company being recruited for is subject to our rates for such advertising.

Illegal Advertisements
Adverts 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. Adverts are therefore accepted by C21Jobs on the understanding 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. Nonetheless if we believe that an advert may be discriminatory we may at our discretion either amend the advert or remove it from C21Media/Jopbs 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.

Responses to advertisements
The Copmpany agrees to deal fairly and professionally with individuals who may respond to an advert and not do anything which may bring C21Jobs into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against C21Media Ltd arising from your breach of this obligation or any other of these terms and conditions.

We do not guarantee any response to your advert 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

Equipment
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 C21Jobs.

Content and links
If the advert links to another site, the Company is responsible for maintaining the links and for the content of the linked site. We may remove from C21Jobs any advert which contains content or links to a site which, in our opinion, is defamatory, illegal or objectionable or will bring C21Jobs into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claims or liability arising from content or links contained in your adverts.

Third party sites
Vacancies you post on C21Jobs may also appear on third party recruitment sites pursuant to agreements from time to time between C21Jobs and the proprietors of such sites.

Browser policy
C21Jobs supports the current and most recent previous versions of most popular browsers. If your browser is not supported, you may still be able to access our site, but you may encounter some display problems. Please update your browser so we can provide you the best possible service.

C21Jobs also requires recruiters to enable session cookies (enabling permanent cookies is recommended), and JavaScript, in their browser.

Passwords
Usernames are for the sole use of the person to whom they are issued. Passwords must be kept confidential and secure. We may deny access to a username if we reasonably believe that it is being used by an unauthorised person or that the user is breaching these terms and conditions.

Customer supplied content
  1. The Recruiter is responsible for the content of supplied material and 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.
