About our Service and our role
- Our service is a platform for use via our website at www.charityjob.co.uk (Service), bringing together individuals seeking employment (Candidates) and recruitment professionals and employers (Recruiters) and advertisers (Advertisers), all primarily active in the charity sector.
- Recruiters are able to post current vacancies of either paid jobs or volunteer roles that are searchable by Candidates to allow them to apply for such positions (Jobs).
- Advertisers are able to post advertisements promoting their brand and services they provide, such as training courses (Adverts).
- Our role is to provide the platform facilitating these connections, not to oversee them, and we are not party to any subsequent employment contract between Candidates and Recruiters or services contracts between Advertisers and Users.
- We do not operate a vetting procedure nor do we run background checks and therefore we cannot take responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of information that our Users provide about themselves.
