SAFERjobs principles of good practice

Recruitment Companies should:

  1. meet the requirements of the Employment Agency legislation;
  2. perform agreed standards of agency staff compliance upfront and meet any requisite legislation ongoing relevant to the sector;
  3. only advertise jobs that do exist and the agency has permission to advertise;
  4. treat job seeker information confidentially and only share with express consent;
  5. pay job seekers promptly and correctly within openly agreed timescales and be upfront about any charges to job seekers;
  6. actively support working with under-represented job seekers such as people with convictions, disabled groups, ex-military personnel, and ethnic minorities;
  7. have an agreed, transparent process in place to investigate job seeker complaints quickly and professionally;
  8. supply in writing clear and full information to the job seeker about the work assignment;
  9. have an easily accessible area of the site dedicated to offering advice of common and prevalent scams with the agreed SAFERjobs text and link;
  10. have a duty to report and share information about fraud with SAFERjobs.
