General

These terms and conditions may be amended from time to time, please ensure you review them regularly. Please contact us at info@yorkshiregraduates.co.uk if you have any questions.

Terms & conditions of business for recruiters

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 supplementary to any other terms and conditions, terms of use, or privacy policy statements provided on the Yorkshire Graduates website. All such material, printed and online, maybe updated at any time and should be viewed regularly.

Posting a Job Advert

Adverts purchased will remain live on the Yorkshire Graduates 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.  The customer sets the start and end date of their advert and the end date can be amended at any time by the customer (by either logging into their account or by contacting the Yorkshire Graduates office) so durations shorter than 28 days can be chosen. 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 the Yorkshire Graduates office to discuss purchasing a bulk advertising package.  If you add a logo to your job advert, Yorkshire Graduates may occasionally use your logo in promotional activity.

Job Advert Content

All job adverts must comply with employment legislation. Any job adverts deemed by Yorkshire Graduates 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 Yorkshire Graduates's discretion.

Yorkshire Graduates is a site dedicated to graduate jobs only. Job adverts which Yorkshire Graduates deems inappropriate for the site, e.g. which are not considered to be of graduate calibre, will be removed by Yorkshire Graduates.

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 with Yorkshire Graduates). Adverts perceived as being generic or which are used to promote external products and services will be removed at Yorkshire Graduates'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 Yorkshire Graduates'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 Yorkshire Graduates.

Employment Agencies/Businesses

Employment agencies and employment businesses (as defined by the Employment Agencies Act 1973), should ensure that any job adverts they post on Yorkshire Graduates 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. Yorkshire Graduates reserve the right to remove agency adverts that do not comply with thus requirement. Employment agencies should also note that candidates registered with Yorkshire Graduates may be given the option to exclude their CVs from CV Searches and CV Matches purchased by employment agencies.

Responses to Job Adverts

Yorkshire Graduates does not guarantee that the customer will receive any applications in response to a job advert. Nor does Yorkshire Graduates guarantee that any applications received will be from applicants suitable for the job being advertised. In both instances, Yorkshire Graduates will not issue a refund.

By posting a job advert on Yorkshire Graduates, 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. Yorkshire Graduates will not be liable for any breach of legislation or of these terms and conditions by customers.

CV Searching & Matching

Customers purchasing a ‘CV Search' are entitled to a maximum of 50 CV views within the normal 28-day vacancy listing period (whichever is reached sooner). A ‘CV view' is counted when a CV title is selected and viewed from the search results.

Customers must only use CV/candidate information obtained from our database for the purpose of contacting them (either directly or through Yorkshire Graduates) 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, Yorkshire Graduates 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.

Yorkshire Graduates does not guarantee that by purchasing a CV search or match, the customer will find/be provided with suitable applicants. In such instances, refunds will not be issued. However, the customer may contact Yorkshire Graduates to discuss individual cases. CV Matching is not an introduction fee, it is a time saving device - and as such there are no guarantees.

By obtaining/receiving CV/candidate information from Yorkshire Graduates, 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. Yorkshire Graduates 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 Yorkshire Graduates 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.

Payment

All prices exclude VAT. Online payment services will be carried out by Sagepay, an independent online payment service provider. Payment online shall be subject to Sagepay's terms and conditions.

Regular customers, or customers purchasing bespoke packages, can apply for a credit account. For credit account customers, invoices are payable within 30 days of invoice date. In cases of late payment, Yorkshire Graduates may suspend provision of services. 10% interest will be payable on payments exceeding 30 days. We understand and will exercise our statutory right to claim interest and compensation for debt recovery costs under the late payment legislation if we are not paid according to Yorkshire Graduates credit terms.

Cancellation Policy

  1. Once a contract has been formed, Yorkshire Graduates cannot accept any cancellation of the agreed Yorkshire Graduates Services: No refunds will be given and outstanding invoices shall remain payable. Without prejudice to the foregoing:

    (i) Subscription Services are for a minimum term as agreed with Yorkshire Graduates. In the event of early termination, no refunds will be given, outstanding invoices shall remain payable, and the fees in respect of any outstanding minimum term shall become payable. 

    (ii) For the avoidance of doubt,  Job Posting credits, CV Search and match credits do not roll over beyond the contract end date. Any Job Postings that are live on the Website will remain live until their expiry date, but no new Job Postings can be made using the credits from the relevant contract.

    (iii) For individual services purchased online, refunds may occasionally be given at Yorkshire Graduates’s sole and absolute discretion.
