There is a growing trend in the block management industry where employers are starting to actively sign up to various job boards. We actively encourage clients to do their own recruitment where possible, but this causes you, the job seeker a problem.
Many candidates are unaware that hundreds of direct employers pay to access the CV database that job boards hold when you sign up to them. The key things to know about many of the job boards is to be aware of what happens to your details when you register. It often comes as a shock to many that as soon as you type in your personal details and upload your CV everyone who pays a subscription to that job board now have access to your contact details and your employment history. This could be your current employer! We are a small industry and people talk.
Job boards have their place, but our advice is to choose a specialist recruitment firm, in your area of expertise. One that is GDPR compliant and you trust. Choose a recruitment agent that is registered with the REC (Recruitment and Employment Confederation) the recruitment industries equivalent to ARMA. Block Recruit scored 100% in their last compliance test and we take your confidentiality seriously!
