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 work-seekers to recruiters (or vice versa). This means that we do not:

· obtain sufficient information for potential recruiters to select a suitable work-seeker for the position which the recruiter seeks to fill;

· obtain confirmation of the identity of a work-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 work-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 work-seeker to fulfil the position to be filled;

· take any steps to ensure that it would not be detrimental to the interests of the work-seeker or the recruiter for the work-seeker to fulfil the position to be fulfilled;

· give any indication to recruiters whether work-seekers are unsuitable (or suitable) for any position to be filled in any circumstances;

· propose work-seekers to recruiters or provide any information about them.

· take up any references in relation to a work-seeker; or

· make any arrangements for accommodation of work-seekers.

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:

If you are a work-seeker; 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 authorisation 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 work-seeker or whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for you to satisfy before taking up a position.

If you are a recruiter; checking the identity of the work-seeker and that the work-seeker has the experience, training, qualifications and authorisation 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 work-seeker to take up a position.

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.

Dutchspeakingjobs supports the current and most recent previous versions of all popular browsers, and follows the HTML 4.01 (loose) and CSS 2.1 W3C standards. If your browser is not supported, you may still be able to access our site, but you may encounter some display problems.

Why we no longer support Internet Explorer 7 and 8

IE7 was released by Microsoft in October 2006 and IE8 in March 2009; so a long time ago in the world of technology. IE9 replaced them in March 2011 and since April 2014, Microsoft themselves stopped supporting them.

We know that a very small number of you still use these browsers. But we’ve reached the point where trying to maintain our site on IE7 & IE8 is preventing us from providing a great experience to the vast majority of you.

And we’re not alone. Facebook and Google apps also don’t support these older browsers.

Please update your browser so we can provide you the best possible service. Thank you.

You agree that we may, at our discretion and without liability to you, remove from Dutchspeakingjobs 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 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.

· URLs or email links (live or text only) are not permitted in the body copy of the job description page. Email and URL are permitted from the ‘apply’ link within the adverts

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. Advertisements are accepted by Dutchspeakingjobs 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 Dutchspeakingjobs 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 Dutchspeakingjobs into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against Dutchspeakingjobs 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.

As part of Dutchspeakingjobs commitment to getting customers the best possible response we reserve the right to amend some of the job details that you supply in order to optimise your advertisement.

We may remove from Dutchspeakingjobs any advertisement which contains content or links to a site which, in our opinion, is defamatory, illegal or objectionable or will bring Dutchspeakingjobs into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claims or liability arising from content or links contained in your advertisements.
