Terms & Conditions

Introduction

These Terms & Conditions set out all the terms between you and us whether you use our Service as a job seeker, employer or advertiser. Charity Digital Jobs reserves the right to modify these Terms & Conditions at any time.

Who are we?

Charity Digital Jobs is a Joint Venture between Tech Trust (Camburgh House, 27 Dover House, Canterbury, Kent CT1 3DN | Registered Charity Number: 1133179  | Registered Company No. 06902258) and Prospectus (20 - 22 Stukeley Street, London, WC2B 5LR | Registered Company No. 0877269)

Services Provided

Charity Digital Jobs provides a platform via our website www.charitydigitaljobs.org (Service) that connects different people (Users) - seeking employment (Job Seekers) with organisations and individuals (Employers) with active job posts or vacancies (Vacancies) or organisations and individuals promoting their brand or service (Advertisers).

  • Employers can post current Vacancies.
  • Advertisers can post adverts promoting Adverts
  • Job seekers can apply for the Vacancies.

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 Employers or Job Seekers or service 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 Job Seekers provide about themselves or the Vacancies promoted by Employers or Adverts promoted by Advertisers.

All job posts must comply with laws protecting equal opportunities and preventing discrimination. We reserve the right to remove from our Service any Advert which you post in breach of these terms or anything that we deem offensive

You may not make any use of or exploit in any way, any of our intellectual property rights except to the extent permitted by this clause.

Employers grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide licence to publish the Vacancies in any format, including without limitation print and electronic format; and a royalty-free non-exclusive licence to publish the Vacancies and to use such of your names, trade marks and/or logos as Charity Digital Jobs may consider necessary in connection with the publication of the Vacancies.
