Description of service
This website allows individuals who have registered with this website as potential employees (Registered Users) to create and maintain a user profile for the purposes of securing employment opportunities (Registered User Profile). Registered User Profiles are a classified listing displaying the Registered User’s skills and experience. Employers or third parties involved in recruitment activities who have registered as potential employers or employment agents with this website (Registered Employers) can choose to initiate contact with a Registered User regarding possible employment opportunities. A Registered User will be notified when a Registered Employer wishes to establish contact. The Registered User then has the option to accept or decline a request to connect based on the employer profile of the Registered Employer (Registered Employer Profile). Should a request be accepted, registered contact details will be exchanged with both parties.
All Registered Employers agree to their Employer Profile being displayed within the websites Employer Directory where selected Registered Users have an option of Expressing their Interest with the Registered Employer. When this situation occurs, the Registered Employer will receive an Email notification of the Registered Users interest in discussing potential job opportunities with the Registered Employer. The Registered Employer can then choose to Request the Contact details of the Registered User should their Profile be of interest.
