HOW TO CONTACT US
You can contact us by emailing to:
The English courts have exclusive jurisdiction over any claim arising from, or related to, your visit or use of Our Site. These Site Terms are governed by, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, English law.
In these terms and conditions:
- ‘Customer’ means any person, company, organisation or firm which purchases Services from us;
- ‘Order Form’ means an order for Services on a form provided by us (in any format) and agreed by a Customer;
- ‘Services’ means all job advertising products and services made available by ‘us’ from time to time;

For example, the calendar month commencing on 24 February and ending 23 March;
- ‘Contract Term’ means the full term specified in the Order Form.
We reserve the right to vary these terms and conditions from time to time. We will aim to give you reasonable notice in advance of implementing such changes by posting the revised terms and conditions on the web site and indicating the effective date that such updated terms and conditions will come into force (“Effective Date”). Where we deem the changes as significant we may also choose to email our registered users with the revised terms and conditions. The revised terms and conditions will be deemed to have been accepted by you if you continue to use the web site and our services after the Effective Date.
Commencement of Services
We will not commence the provision of Services pursuant to any Order Form 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.
Prices are as specified in the Career Poster ratecards and are guaranteed for the period stated on the order form. Any discounts agreed are confidential and may not be disclosed by the customer.
Where a Customer posts an advertisement through Career Poster which includes any reference to a brand of a client or a subsidiary of the Customer (which reference may include, without limitation, such client’s or subsidiary’s logo, http address, email address and telephone number) (“Client Branded Advertising”), and the posting of such Client Branded Advertising has not been agreed by us in the Order Form or other contract agreed with such Customer, charges for the advertisement will be as per the relevant rate card and charged to the Customer for each job posted through Career Poster which includes a non-agreed piece of Client Branded Advertising.
A job posted through Career Poster will remain live for 28 days or the duration of the selected board provides. 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 a price per job agreed with the customer at the time of the contract negotiation. If no price has been negotiated, a flat fee for each job will be charged for each job over the agreed number, the price will depend on the package. A single job is identified by its unique ID number. If a customer deletes a job and then either reposts it or posts another, this will be classed as two jobs.
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 payments will be taken up front before services start unless agreed differently with Career Poster. In this case, all invoices are payable within 28 days from invoice date. Late payment will entitle us to suspend provision of Services.
CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS
The payments are made by credit/ debit card using PayPal’s secure payment facility. Please visit PayPal’s Terms for more information.
Customer credit card details are not stored on the website.
- The Customer may terminate in writing the provision of Services under any Order Form by no less than:

|Up to 2 months||30 days|
|3 to 5 months||90 days|
|6 months plus||180 days|
To expire at the end of the contract Month.

- 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:
- 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:
- The Customer becomes insolvent, ceases to trade or goes into liquidation.
License to use Customer’s name, trademarks and logos

Job Posting Rules
We have rules regarding the content and format of jobs posted with Career Poster. Their purpose is to ensure that customers follow the posting rules of third party job boards. You agree that we may, at our discretion and without liability to you, remove from the job boards 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.
The Rules are:
- No duplicating of jobs at the expense of other clients’ 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 through Career Poster 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.
- Any advertising that uses the name or logo of the company being recruited for is subject to our rates for such branded advertising.
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 Career Poster 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 the job boards 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 Career Poster or its ‘Service’ into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against Career Poster 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.
As part of Career Poster’s commitment to getting customers the best possible response we reserve the right to amend some of the job details that you supply in order to optimise your advertisement.
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 through Career Poster.
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 Career Poster any advertisement which contains content or links to a site which, in our opinion, is defamatory, illegal or objectionable or will bring Career Poster 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 Career Poster will appear on third party recruitment / advertising web sites pursuant to agreements from time to time between Career Poster and the proprietors of such web sites.
It is the ‘customers’ responsibility to follow the terms and posting rules of any third party or job board website we post your vacancy across.
Advertising on CV Library
Reseller services with CV Library are client branded only. This means we will not be able to advertise your job on CV Library, if the advertising company already has an account set up with them directly. We may decline or exclude CV Library from the network of job boards you have selected, if you or your client has already got an account on this platform.
Branding is available on selected job boards and on all of the job boards under our ‘Branded’ package. Your company branding can be refused by third party job boards if you already have an account set up directly or if your branding violates their terms of service. We can advertise jobs under our name with your job advert, which doesn’t affect these rules.
100+ Job Board Network
We have a network of over 100+ job board sites and other websites that share our jobs through an XML or RSS feed displayed on our website. Job boards can be added and removed from this network when necessary, such as when a new website downloads our feed or if a website stops functioning and is no longer required. These sites typically crawl our site/download our feed every 24 hours. This means it can take up to 24 hours for any edits to take effect or jobs to go live. It’s also at the discretion of the third party website to list your vacancy.
