Job Posting Site Rules

We have rules regarding the content and format of jobs posted on iCareCareers. The purpose is to ensure that our candidate users get results which are presented as clearly and informatively as possible.

By submitting a vacancy to the Website, you are authorising iCareCareers to post the vacancy (If you are not posting directly). You are responsible for the content of the vacancy and will indemnify iCareCareers against any claim, loss, liability, expense and/or damage ("Losses") in connection therewith.

Job postings which discriminate (or appear to discriminate) on grounds of age, sex, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation and pregnancy/maternity are illegal and may result in proceedings being taken against both the Client and the publisher. Job postings are accepted by iCareCareers 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 a job posting may be discriminatory we may at our discretion either amend the job posting or remove it from iCareCareers without liability.

The Client shall provide sufficient details about itself and the vacancy to applicants including without limitation the Client's identity, the nature of its business, the nature of the role, the type of work to be performed, the commencement date, the likely duration, the hours of work and the location.

Applicants' responses will be forwarded by iCareCareers by e-mail. iCareCareers accepts no responsibility for the content of any such application. In particular, but without limitation, the Client is responsible for verifying the applicant's identity, eligibility to work, experience, training, qualifications and authorisations required by the Client, by law or by any relevant professional body for the vacancy.

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 iCareCareers into disrepute. All and any subsequent dealings between you, the Client, and any applicant in connection with the applicant's response to the job posting are your responsibility. You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against iCareCareers arising from your breach of this obligation.

The Client will comply with all applicable laws, including without limitation: current data protection legislation and the Equality Act 2010. By submitting a vacancy to the Website, the Client thereby confirms that the content of the vacancy complies with the Code of Practice on Employment provided by the Equality and Human Rights Commission. The Client shall indemnify iCareCareers against any Losses in connection therewith.

You agree not to post any vacancy where:

  • a) there is a risk to the health and safety of any applicant, unless you undertake to inform the candidates of such risks and the steps taken to prevent or control such risks; or
  • b) the role involves working with vulnerable persons, including without limitation persons under the age of 18 or persons in need of care and attention by reason of old age, infirmity or any other circumstances, unless you undertake, in respect of the candidate to be placed to take all reasonably practicable steps, including without limitation complying with all relevant laws, codes of practices and guidelines issued by relevant authorities, to confirm that the candidate is not unsuitable for the position concerned.

The Client shall use all reasonable endeavours to ascertain that it will not be detrimental to the interests of the applicant it intends to engage (if any) with to work for the Client in the job posting.

iCareCareers reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to remove any vacancy at any time without reason. Examples of vacancies that may be removed include, but are not limited to:

  • those that iCareCareers considers illegal, inappropriate, or fraudulent.
  • those that iCareCareers considers do not meet any of the criteria outlined in clause 1.
  • those that do not meet our job site posting rules set out above.
  • those that directly or indirectly require or ask for application or registration fees.
  • those that advertise, pyramid, network marketing or get-rich-quick schemes.
  • those that have been indiscriminately posted or duplicated across multiple sectors.
  • those that advertise websites, services, businesses, business opportunities and/or contact details.

Job postings will last for 42 Days, from the date posted.

Clients understand and agree that the following actions constitute a new/additional job advertisement under this agreement: copying a job ad; reposting an expired, archived or deleted job ad; changing the location of an ad; extending a live job ad beyond 42 days. Minor changes to job ad body copy and ad title, work type, sector and classification categories do not usually constitute a new job ad.

Clients acknowledge and agree that they must only advertise one job role per job posting on to the iCareCareers site. Where clients have breached this obligation and have advertised multiple job roles in the one job posting, iCareCareers reserves the right to notify the Client of the breach and request immediate amendment of the advert copy or to gain agreement to advertise the roles as individual job postings.

iCareCareers acts as a Platform and is not responsible for the content of job postings from different Clients. If you have an issue with a job posting that is not your own, you should deal with this directly and not through iCareCareers.

CV Searching Service Rules

  • For equal opportunities reasons, we do not allow organisations access to any candidate CV unless you have a job posted on the site.
  • CV access will be active for as long as the vacancy is live or for as long as the Client has an Unlimited Job Posting.
  • The Client shall not share its access to candidates with any third party.
