Terms and Conditions for Employers
In these terms and conditions ‘customer' means any person, company, or organisation which purchases any of our services. ‘Service' means any recruitment product or service offered by us. These terms and conditions are
Posting a Job Advert
Adverts purchased will remain live on the GradsKent website for a maximum of 28 days. An advert can contain only one job role. Separate adverts must be purchased for each job you wish to advertise.
No refunds will be issued for unused portions of the 28-day maximum period. If a job advert needs to be extended beyond the closing date, taking the advert over the 28-day maximum, the customer will need to purchase an additional 28-day advert. Discounts are not offered on bulk buying, due to already low rates, but regular customers can contact GradsKent to discuss purchasing a bulk advertising package.
Job Advert Content
All job adverts must comply with employment legislation. Any job adverts deemed by GradsKent to be contravening current legislation on the grounds of, for example (but not limited to), race, age, sex, gender, religion or disability will either be amended or removed from the website at GradsKent’s discretion. GradsKent is a site dedicated to graduate jobs only. Job adverts which GradsKent deems inappropriate for the site, e.g. which do not appear to be graduate level, will be removed by GradsKent. All job adverts must be for a genuine, specific job and not be a generic advert for an organisation or products/services (unless by special prior agreement). Adverts perceived as being generic or which are used to promote external products and services will be removed at GradsKent’s discretion. Job adverts should not contain hyperlinks to any external site which contains material which is defamatory, offensive or obscene or of a menacing character or which may, in GradsKent’s opinion, cause annoyance or inconvenience or anxiety to any person including, without limitation, any racist, sexist, harassing, threatening, discriminatory, vulgar or abusive material, opinions or messages. Any such job advert will be removed by GradsKent.
Any employer posting an advert on the GradsKent site is entitled to remove the advert within 12 hours without incurring a charge. Any vacancies that are cancelled and removed within 48 hours will incur a £50 cancellation fee to cover the costs incurred by the GradsKent team in cross-advertising the vacancy with other sites and universities.
Any vacancies that are cancelled or removed from the GradsKent website after 48 hours will be charged at the full cost agreed.
Employment agencies and employment businesses (as defined by the Employment Agencies Act 1973), should ensure that any job adverts they post on GradsKent comply with the Act and Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2004.
Employment agencies are required to specify the name of their client in their job adverts. GradsKent reserve the right to remove agency adverts that do not comply with this requirement. Employment agencies should also note that candidates registered with GradsKent may be given the option to exclude their CVs from CV Searches and CV Matches purchased by employment agencies.
Responses to Job Adverts
GradsKent does not guarantee that the customer will receive any applications in response to a job advert. Nor does GradsKent guarantee that any applications received will be from applicants suitable for the job being advertised. In both instances, GradsKent will not issue a refund.
By posting a job advert on GradsKent, the customer agrees to treat all applicants fairly and professionally, and agrees to carry out subsequent recruitment and selection procedures in accordance with current employment legislation.
GradsKent will not be liable for any breach of legislation or of these terms and conditions by customers.
Employer Matching Service
Employers obtaining CVs from our database through the Gold Employer Matching Service may only use CV/candidate information for the purpose of contacting them (either directly or through GradsKent) in relation to a specific job vacancy and for purposes connected to recruitment for that position. Such information must not be used for purposes not related to recruitment and, should such activity be notified to us, GradsKent retains the right to suspend the customer's account.
Customers must not supply, sell or license material from the CV database to any other person organisation, (including another member of your group of companies). Customers must not download the database through any automated process. Customers must, at all times, comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 and all subsequent legislation and regulations in relation to any CV/candidate information obtained from our database. Breach of these conditions will result in the suspension of the customer's account.
GradsKent does not guarantee that by taking part in the Employer Matching Service, the customer will find/be provided with suitable applicants. In such instances, refunds will not be issued. However, the customer may contact GradsKent to discuss individual cases. Employer Matching is not an introduction fee, it is a time saving device, and so GradsKent cannot provide guarantees that the service will lead to successful recruitment.
By obtaining/receiving CV/candidate information from GradsKent, the customer agrees to treat all applicants fairly and professionally, and agrees to carry out subsequent recruitment and selection procedures in accordance with current employment legislation. GradsKent will not be liable for any breach of legislation or of these terms and conditions by customers.
Your Account & Password
Your account and password are for the sole use of the person to whom they are issued. If GradsKent believes that an account or password is being used by an unauthorised person or that the user is breaching these terms and conditions, the customer's account will be suspended.
All prices exclude VAT.
Payment by credit card is via Paypal, an independent Payment Service Provider.
For credit account customers, invoices are payable within 30 days of invoice date. In cases of late payment, GradsKent may suspend provision of services. 10% interest will be payable on payments exceeding 60 days.
