  6. We do not guarantee any response to your advertisement (Managed Advert Service) or that responses will be from individuals suitable for the job advertised.
  7. We have rules regarding the content and format of jobs adverts posted on Authentic Recruitment (Managed Advert Service). Their purpose is to ensure that users who search the site or the Authentic Recruitment 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 Authentic Recruitment 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.
    • a. The job posted must exist in the town advertised, unless it is a franchise opportunity (which must be stated in the description).
    • b. The job title should be specific and be the best description for the role. It must not include salaries and should not be a general phrase (e.g. Fantastic Opportunity or Print Your Own Money!).
    • c. Emails and URLs within job descriptions are not allowed. We will automatically remove these before the job is posted.
    • d. 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.
    • e. If the job role offers training and there is a charge for this then the vacancy must state this.
    • f. 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 Authentic Recruitment 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 Authentic Recruitment 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.
    • g. The vacancy should accurately describe the role and not mislead the Candidate; sufficient detail should be included in order for the Candidate to understand the nature of the role and the basic requirements of the role. If a role requires a Candidate to work in multiple locations then the vacancy must state this; if the role is a commission only role then this must be stated on the vacancy.
  8. Refunds cannot be provided if the Candidate is not of the desired age, sex, race, or nationality, as these criteria contradict our equal opportunities policy, and common decency.
  9. The terms and conditions of this agreement will continue unless terminated by you or us, by notice in accordance with this section.
    • a. We reserve the right to terminate this agreement immediately and payment will become due immediately of all outstanding amounts. Authentic Recruitment will have no further obligation to you, upon the occurrence of any of the following events:
      • i. You fail to pay any amount due to us;
      • ii.

      • iii. You are an individual and are declared bankrupt or enter into any arrangement or compromise with your creditors, or you cease to trade;
      • iv. The Recruiter is in material breach of these terms and conditions and has not remedied such breach within ten days of notice specifying the breach and requiring that it be remedied.
