Conduct of Employment Agencies and Businesses Regulations 2003
Jobseekers and recruiters need to be aware that when using Return Hub Connect, the website operates as a venue only facility and we therefore do not introduce or supply work-seekers to recruiters (or vice versa). This means that we do not:
- supply information for potential recruiters to select a suitable work-seeker for the position which the recruiter seeks to fill;
- confirm the identity of a work-seeker or their experience, training, qualifications or authorisation to work in the position to be filled or that they wish to undertake the role to be filled;
- 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;
- 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 autho.risation for the position to be filled. Since The Return Hub Connect operates as a venue only and do not 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, 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.
Terms and Conditions of Business for Recruiters
In these terms and conditions:
a. ‘Customer’ means any person, company, organisation or firm which purchases Services from us;
b. ‘Order Form’ means an order for Services on a form provided by us (in any format) and signed by a Customer;
c. ‘Services’ means all recruitment products and services made available by us from time to time;
d. ‘Contract Term’ means the full term specified in the Order Form.
Commencement of Services
We will not commence the provision of Services pursuant to any until the Order Form has been returned to us, in a form approved by us and confirmed by the Customer by way of signature, e-mail confirmation or provision of purchase order number and, in the case of Customers who purchase Services on terms that require pre-payment, Services will not commence until payment is received and cleared.
These terms and conditions are deemed to be accepted by the Customer upon posting of a job advert and/or confirmation of an Order Form.
Job adverts posted by Worldpay will usually go live during normal office hours of 9.00 – 17.00 within 2 hours after payment confirmation.
Prices are as specified in the ratecard for this Website and are guaranteed for the period stated on the order form. Any discounts agreed are confidential and may not be disclosed by the Customer.
A job posted on the Website will remain live for 30 days or until the agreed closing date of the job. Any extension of this time will be charged to the Customer as a new posting. Any jobs posted in addition to the agreed number of jobs per month will be charged at the agreed overspending rate listed on your Order Form.
If any Services to be used within any time period specified on the Order Form are not used within that period of time they may not be carried over into any subsequent period without our prior written consent. The Customer will be responsible for payment for any unused Services.
All prices exclude VAT. Payment is due immediately on date of invoice and late payment will entitle us to suspend provision of Services. Interest will be payable on late payments at the rate of 6% above the Bank of England’s base rate from time to time.
The Customer may terminate in writing the provision of Services under any Order Form:
(i) by no less than 1 month’s notice;
(ii) if we are in material breach of these terms and conditions and have not remedied such breach within ten days of notice specifying the breach and requiring that it be remedied; or
(iii) if we become insolvent, cease to trade or go into liquidation. Termination by the Customer before the end of the Contract Term may, at our discretion, result in loss of discounts agreed for the entire Contract Term.
We may terminate the provision of Services if:
(i) the Customer 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; or
(ii) the Customer becomes insolvent, ceases to trade or goes into liquidation.
We will not be liable for any costs, expenses or damages incurred by the Customer (the “Costs”) pursuant to the Services. Nothing in this paragraph shall limit or exclude any liability incurred by us due to fraudulent misrepresentation or concealment, nor for any damages for personal injuries caused by the negligence of the Customer, its agents or its employees.
Job advertising Site rules
We have rules regarding the content and format of jobs posted on this Website. Their purpose is to ensure that users who search the site or this Website’s database get relevant 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 this Website 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, and we reserve the right to use our discretion in applying these rules, where appropriate.
The Rules are:
- Jobs must have basic salaries, or equivalent, of at least £16,000 per annum on a full-time equivalent basis (unpaid volunteer posts, for example Trusteeships for a charity are exempt from this rule).
- No duplicating of jobs at the expense of other Customers’ 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.
- Job advertisements placed on this job site must be for genuine vacancies 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’.
- URLs or email links (live or text only) are not permitted in the body copy of the job description page. Email links are permitted from the ‘send an email’ link and url linking is permitted from the ‘apply online’ link.
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 this Website 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 job site 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 this Website into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against this job site 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.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the appropriate equipment and are connected to the appropriate services to enable you to post jobs to this Website.
Content and links
If your advertisement links to another site via our external apply online option, you are responsible for maintaining the links and for the content of your advertisement and the linked site. We may remove from this job site any advertisement which contains content or links to a site which, in our opinion, is defamatory, illegal or objectionable or will bring this Website into disrepute.
You will indemnify us from and against any claims or liability arising from content or links contained in your advertisements.
Third party sites
Vacancies you post on this Website may also appear on third party recruitment websites pursuant to agreements from time to time between this job site and the proprietors of such websites.

We operate an ‘opt-out’ case study policy. From time to time, we publicise our work by listing the names of recruiters who have advertised on our Website.
