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.
We have rules regarding the content and format of jobs posted on DirectlyApply. Their purpose is to ensure that users who search the Website or the DirectlyApply 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 DirectlyApply 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 job posted must exist in the town advertised, unless it is a franchise opportunity (which must be stated in the description).
The job title should be specific and be the best description for the role. It must not include locations or salaries and should not be a generic in title (e.g. Exciting Opportunity or Great Earning Potential).
Emails and URLs within job descriptions are not allowed. We will automatically remove these.
The description of the role should mention the required skills as well as details describing the role. Contact names should not be mentioned in the job description.
If the job role offers training and there is a charge for this then the vacancy must state this and this vacancy will then be branded with our 'learn to earn' banner. Training courses must be advertised separately within our training section.
Advertisements which discriminate (or appear to discriminate) on grounds of sex, race, age or disability are illegal and may result in proceedings being taken against both the advertiser and the publisher. Advertisements are accepted by DirectlyApply 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 DirectlyApply 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.
The vacancy should accurately describe the role and not mislead the Job Seeker; sufficient detail should be included in order for the Job Seeker to understand the nature of the role and the basic requirements of the role. If a role requires a Job Seeker to work in multiple locations then the vacancy must state this; if the role is selling a product/service 'door-to-door' then the vacancy must state this; similarly, if the role is a commission only role then this must be stated on the vacancy.
Job credits must be used within the Fixed Term; time will not be extended for job credits that have not been posted or posted part of the way through the Fixed Term (for example, if you sign up for one job credit over a one month fixed term and this is posted on the 21st day the job will expire on the last day of the one month fixed term).
DirectlyApply acts as an agent, and is not responsible for the content of job adverts from different Employers. If you have an issue with a job advert that is not your own, you should deal with this directly and not through DirectlyApply.
You agree to pay the entire balance (in pounds sterling) of your account prior to the commencement of the service (unless an alternative payment structure is agreed in writing). You agree that payments will be made by credit/debit card or bank transfer. You acknowledge and agree that in the event of failure by you, or the person with whom responsibility lies for payment of such transactions, that we may terminate your account and cancel this agreement immediately. We may also pursue payment in a court of law.
You agree to the payment structure agreed with your account manager, and agree to be charged in accordance with it. All prices are in pounds sterling.
You agree that we may alter the above rates within 14 days of notifying you of such changes, although any changes will not come into effect until the end of your Fixed Term. If you do not wish to continue this agreement with the altered rates, you may terminate the agreement at the end of your Fixed Term.
We may agree monthly payments in advance by way of Direct Debit. Direct Debits will be taken in advance of services used and will be set, and money debited, by Debit Finance. You will be notified in writing of the amount debited and the Fixed Term. If one payment is missed then the monthly instalment must be settled immediately by BACS or credit card, your account and all services will be suspended until payment is received. If two payments are missed the account will automatically be cancelled and no future Direct Debits will be granted and the outstanding amount for the remainder of the fixed term will become due immediately, DirectlyApply reserve the right to pursue payment in a court of law.
All prices exclude VAT. All invoices are payable in accordance with your Service Agreement or these Terms and Conditions. Late payment will entitle us to suspend provision of Services. Interest will be payable on late payments at the rate of 3% above National Westminster Bank plc's base rate from time to time.
Refunds cannot be provided if the Job Seeker is not of the desired age, sex, race, or nationality, as these criteria contradict our equal opportunities policy, and common decency.
These Terms and Conditions will continue unless terminated by you or us, by notice in accordance with this section.
We reserve the right to terminate this agreement immediately and payment will become due immediately of all outstanding amounts. DirectlyApply will have no further obligation to you, upon the occurrence of any of the following events:
You fail to pay any amount due to us;
