Jobseekers can often face such a challenging and frustrating experience, but what can make matters far worse is becoming a victim of a job-scam.
These often trick people into:

- Handing over personal details
- Handing over bank details
- Unfortunately the candidate expects to start a new role but the harsh reality is that they’ve been misled and there’s no job.

The UK Jobs Market
The UK Job market has changed beyond recognition in 2020, as we have all felt the full force of the pandemic. Employers have had to adapt and this in turn has directly affected UK job seekers.
Availability of jobs depends on what area of the country you live in.
Generally the South and North West have had the greatest percentage jobs growth, other areas of the country, growth has fluctuated.
Job scams are a clear and present danger to job seekers and job agencies.
Any form of Job Search Protection is therefore going to be very reassuring to all job seekers.
JobsAware Job Search Tips
Principles of Good Practice
- Job Vacancies – We only work with established and genuine jobs providers, who are themselves signed up for the SAFERjobs scheme. Any jobs uploaded by individuals or companies have to go through a verification process
- Due Diligence – We check potential employer location, profiles, if reviews are real. Also look at past conduct, if possible, to ensure there is no history regarding mistreatment of job-seekers
- Boundaries – We have a system in place to minimise the number of times, the same advert can be published
- Granting Permission to Publish – Once jobs have been uploaded by a third party they go straight to ‘Admin Review’ allowing us to check if they meet our criteria. If they do then the job or jobs are authorised, published then become active
- Rejecting Jobs – If they don’t meet our criteria, which could also include they are possible threats to our jobs infrastructure like possible malware or spam then at the ‘Admin Review’ stage the uploaded jobs would be rejected.
- Further Investigation – Would involve asking all the required questions to establish if Garniche Jobs UK could move forward with this or reject the job listing
- Misleading – Ensure that blatantly misleading job postings are removed (if issues are flagged up by job seekers). This would happen after an investigation, if we agreed
- Duty of Care – To report and share information about fraud with JobsAware
- Permission – Garniche Jobs UK will seek permission from Job Seekers before transferring their data
- Breaches – A process in place to investigate breaches
