Since we are only a venue and do not propose or introduce jobseekers to employers or vice versa, it is recommended that, if you are a jobseeker you undertake the necessary steps to ensure your suitability for the role advertised or, if you are an employer, to ensure a jobseeker’s suitability for the role.

We have rules regarding the content and format of job adverts posted on the Site. Their purpose is to ensure that users who search the Site 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 the Site any advert 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. When using the Site you must ensure that:

  • your job advert particulars are accurate, honest and truthful;

  • your job advert does not use unnecessarily repeated words or phrases intended to cause a false positioning in search results seen by a jobseeker or to increase the number of page views; and

  • your job advert is for a genuine vacancy 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'.

21. CONTENT AND LINKS

If your job advert includes a link to another website, you are responsible for maintaining the link and for the content of your advert and the linked website. We may remove from the Site any job advert which contains content or links to a website which, in our opinion, is defamatory, illegal, infringes the intellectual property rights of any person, or is objectionable or will bring us into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claims or liability arising from content or links contained in your job advert.

22.ILLEGAL ADVERTS

Job adverts 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. Adverts are accepted by us on the basis that you as the advertiser confirm 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 advert may be discriminatory we may at our discretion either amend the advert or remove it from the Site without any obligation to refund any amount paid or due to be paid in respect of the posting or otherwise, and will inform you accordingly.

23. RESPONSES TO ADVERTS

You will only use CVs and person identifiable jobseeker information submitted via the Site for the purpose of finding employees to fill your vacancy(ies).

You will comply with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 and other applicable data protection legislation as updated from time to time, and, in particular, will take all appropriate technical, organisational and security measures to prevent unauthorised access, loss and use of personal data relating to jobseekers.

We do not guarantee any response to your advert or that responses will be from individuals suitable for the job advertised. You accept that you are responsible for satisfying yourself as to the suitability of jobseekers for a job vacancy and verifying the identity of such jobseekers.

You agree to deal fairly and professionally with individuals who may respond to an advert you have posted and not do anything which may bring 3Beards into disrepute.

  • the jobseeker has read and understood the requirements for the job vacancy;

  • the information that the jobseeker provides as part of the application (including without limitation, in any CV) is a true and accurate reflection of the jobseeker’s employment, education, experience and training and that the jobseeker’s personal details are correct.
