Job Posting

Employment agencies and employment businesses

If you are an employment agency or an employment business (as defined by the Employment Agencies Act 1973 ('the Act')) it is your responsibility to ensure that advertisements you place on Catererglobal.com comply with your obligations under the Act and Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2004. You agree to comply with the Act and these regulations as they affect the conduct of your business and the advertisements you place on Catererglobal.com.

Site rules

We have rules regarding the content and format of jobs posted on Catererglobal.com. Their purpose is to ensure that users who search the site or the Catererglobal.com 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 Catererglobal.com 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:

·         No duplicating of jobs at the expense of other clients' jobs.

·         No gratuitous use of keywords in job descriptions or job titles. Gratuitous is defined as 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 advertisements placed on Catererglobal.com 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.

·         All consultancies who post jobs directly onto Catererglobal.com using an XML, CSV or Spidering feed can only do so once per week on the day of your choice.

·         All consultancies posting jobs onto Catererglobal.com directly through Ad Manager cannot repost (i.e. expire a live job then copy to new) live jobs until they have been on the site for at least seven days.

Illegal Advertisements

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. If we believe that an advertisement may be discriminatory we may at our discretion either amend the advertisement or remove it from Catererglobal.com 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

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 Catererglobal.com into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against Catererglobal.com 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.

Site availability

We use our best efforts to ensure that Catererglobal.com is available to users of the world wide web 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, at times the site may be partially or completely unavailable due to technical faults or reasons beyond our control such as failures by third party service providers or a risk of virus attack. We will deal with these situations as quickly as reasonably possible, but you agree that we shall have no financial liability to you in the event of such unavailability.

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 Catererglobal.com.

Content and links

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

Passwords

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

Third party sites

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

Online advertising

·         These terms and conditions apply to all advertising material ('Campaigns') accepted by The Totaljobs Group Limited (‘we’ or ‘us’) for display on any of our web sites. By placing a Campaign you accept these terms and conditions as principal, even if you are acting as agent or buyer for the actual advertiser.

·         We must receive the complete creative content for a Campaign in acceptable format at least two working days before 9 am on the go- live date specified in your order. Otherwise, we may not be able to achieve the specified go-live date but you must pay the full amount set out in the order irrespective of whether any delivery target for impressions have been met.

·         To cancel or alter your order you must inform us, by fax or email at the number or address on the order, at least two working days before 9 am on the go- live date specified in your order. Otherwise you must pay the full amount set out in the order, irrespective of whether any delivery targets for impressions have been met.

·         You are responsible for the content of the Campaign and for ensuring that it complies with all relevant legislation and codes of practice. If we receive complaints about the content or the Campaign we may, at our discretion, remove the Campaign from display without reference or liability to you. You will indemnify us against any claim that the Campaign or its content infringes the intellectual property rights or other rights of others or is defamatory or otherwise offensive. If you are an employment agency or an employment business (as defined by the Employment Agencies Act 1973) it is your responsibility to ensure the advertisements you place on Catererglobal.com comply with the various regulations made under the Act. These regulations are contained in the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations as they affect the conduct of your business and the advertisements you place on Catererglobal.com.

·         You are also responsible for fulfilling and dealing with any orders or enquiries relating to the goods or services to which the Campaign relates and you will indemnify and hold us harmless accordingly.

·         Where a Campaign is sold on a cpm basis, we will provide you with a password to enable you to monitor the number of impressions served in lieu of any other right of audit. You will not use the password, or the system to which it gives you access, for any other purpose.

·         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.

·         These terms and conditions are governed by the Laws of England.
