Applying for jobs 

You can apply for any job advertised on our Website by following the instructions on the advert.  

BMJ provides no guarantee as to the validity of any Job Advert or that the job being advertised is a genuine employment opportunity.  The inclusion of any Job Advert on our Website does not imply that BMJ endorses or approves the relevant job, employer or other third party. Before applying for any job advertised on our Website or sharing any information about yourself we recommend that you thoroughly research the employer, their organisation, their locations, and the role in question, and that you carefully consider the role described before making any decision which could adversely affect your employment situation.

By submitting an application for a Job Advert on our Website you are confirming that:

  • you have undertaken your own checks and are satisfied: (a) that the job being advertised is a genuine bona fide employment opportunity; (b) with the identity of the employer and their quality; and  (c) that the description and any other information provided to you (via the job advert itself or directly) is accurate, truthful and reliable; and
  • you consent to your application, email address and any personal information you have provided to us (including any personal information which may be available in any documents uploaded by you) being submitted to the employer in question including any third-party acting on their behalf.

If you apply for a job or accept any offer of employment, you do so at your own risk.  In no event will BMJ be liable for any loss or damage you may sustain as a result of applying for, or accepting, any job.  BMJ provides no guarantee as to the bona fides or quality of any job or any employer.  For the avoidance of any doubt, BMJ does not undertake any checks, review or other vetting process in order to verify the legitimacy of any job advert or employer – This is your own responsibility. 

CV checker service

Our CV checker services include a review of the CV you have uploaded and a 20 minute consultation during which we will provide you with recommendations which, in our opinion, will improve your CV.  By submitting your payment information and uploading your CV to this service you are making an offer to us to purchase our CV checker services subject to these Terms. Your offer will be accepted by us and a contract formed only when we have verified your payment details at which point we will confirm your order (by sending you a confirmation email to the email address you have given us). 

You are responsible for providing us with a copy of the CV you wish us to review.  Whilst we will endeavour to notify you if we believe you have uploaded the wrong file in error, you acknowledge and accept that it is your responsibility to notify us immediately if you have uploaded the wrong document.  Whilst we will endeavour to accommodate any reasonable request, if we have already reviewed the document submitted to us then our full charges will remain payable in full (and if you wish us to review any further document(s), including any other versions of that document, then further charges will be payable).

Once your payment and CV have been received we aim to contact you by email within 5 days to arrange a time for your telephone consultation.  We aim to review your CV and provide your telephone consultation within 21 days of your order being placed.  We accept no liability if you are unable to attend your telephone consultation for any reason (including where you have failed to receive our email communications - so please ensure that you check your junk and/or spam folder regularly in order to avoid disappointment).

Advertising a job with us

If you would like to advertise with us please contact your BMJ Sales Manager.  Based on your requirements, we may provide you with a proposal.  Any descriptions or illustrations provided to you by us are for the sole purpose of giving you an approximate idea of the services we will provide to you, and they will not form part of your agreement with us or have any contractual force.

Contents of your Job Advert

Unless we have agreed otherwise in writing, your Job Advert must:
refer to a specific single bona fide vacancy;

  • if you are recruiting on behalf of a third-party this must be clearly stated in your Job Advert;
  • include your full name, contact information and any registration number or ID (where you are involved in a registered trade or other equivalent industry sector);
  • clearly specify the precise location(s) of the job being advertised and any other location(s) where the successful Job seeker may be required to work; 
  • clearly specify any qualifying conditions which may be applicable to the job being advertised; and
  • must not include any hyperlinks (unless specifically authorised in writing by us).

If you are a recruitment agency you do not need to specify the identity of the employer you are acting for in relation to your Job Advert, but you must be prepared to identify the end employer to us and provide any other information we may reasonably require upon request.

You are responsible for ensuring that all content provided to us or included in your Job Advert is:

  • decent, truthful, accurate, unambiguous and not misleading;
  • suitable for the general audience of our Websites and relevant to the vacancy you are advertising; and
  • in the primary language of the Website on which your job will be advertised.

You are also responsible for:

  • obtaining any necessary consents which may be required in order to enable us to publish your Job Advert and any other content provided by you on our Website (and you must ensure that the content of your Job Advert does not infringe anyone else’s rights, including anyone else’s intellectual property rights);

  • any promotional competition or game; or 
  • anything which we consider could be prejudicial to our image or reputation.

We reserve the right to remove your Job Advert from our Website without notice and without liability to you if your Job Advert contravenes our requirements.

Listing your Job Advert

Our Job Adverts appear on our Website via search or browse functionality, which is based upon the sectors which you specify when you post your Job Advert.  Unless otherwise agreed with us in advance, you can select up to a maximum of 1 location and 1 specialty sector for each Job Advert.  If you fail to comply with this requirement then we reserve the right to remove your Job Advert from our Website without notice and without liability to you.

The recruitment process

You agree to consider and respond to each application and/or enquiry you receive from a user of our Website within a reasonable period of receipt. You further agree to treat each Job Seeker fairly and in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations, guidelines and codes of practice which apply, both to you, and in any country from which our Websites may be viewed.

Should you fill a job vacancy advertised in your Job Advert before the expiry of its live period on our Website, you will notify us via email and you acknowledge that we shall be entitled to withdraw your Job Advert from our Website in these circumstances.  Should you receive any application from a Job Seeker once the relevant vacancy has been filled, you agree to promptly notify that Job Seeker to confirm that the vacancy in question has closed.

If you contravene our requirements we reserve the right to remove your Job Advert(s) with notice and without liability to you.

Accessing archive copies of your Job Adverts

If you would like to request a copy of a Job Advert which you have previously advertised with us then please contact your dedicated BMJ Sales Manager or jobboardsupport@bmj.com.  We reserve the right to charge an administrative fee of £100 GBP for each copy requested.  Whilst we will endeavour to retain a copy of the content of each Job Advert for a period of six (6) months following publication, we provide no guarantee that we will be able to supply any copy of your Job Advert or other related content.  We therefore recommend that you make your own copies (in a durable format) of any Job Advert you publish with us.  You guarantee that you have sufficient quality copies/backups of all materials supplied to us and we accept no liability or responsibility for any loss of the same.

Credit account 

If you are a credit account customer, you agree to be subject to a credit check, the results of which will determine the type of payment plan we wish to offer to you.  If we offer you a credit account, we may require guarantees or other security as a condition of our acceptance of your order.  We also reserve the right to withdraw your credit facility at any time, for any reason.


PAYMENTS

Whilst our Job Seeker accounts and search facilities are free for you to use, certain other services require the payment of a fee.  If you are a Recruiter, the terms and conditions of any contract you have with us for the provision of the relevant Recruiter services will override this section of these Terms.

Our prices for our services (and the currency in which you pay) will be stated on the relevant web page of our Website from which you began the ordering process.  We reserve the right to cancel the services and your account with us if you do not make a payment to us when it is due.  It is your responsibility to pay any other charges that might be applied by your bank or payment provider in paying for the services, including in relation to any currency conversion required.  Unless otherwise specified on the relevant web page of our Website, our prices are non-refundable.

Whilst we try to ensure that all prices we display and quote are correct and accurate, errors may occur. If we incorrectly state a price, we are not obliged to provide you with services at that price. If we notify you of such a mistake, even after having accepted your offer to buy the specified services at the incorrect price, you may either pay the correct price or you can cancel your order for the services in which case we will then refund any money you have paid us that relates to the unexpired portion of the services you have purchased. If you do neither of these things then we shall be entitled to cancel or suspend your services.

In providing your payment information and details you are representing to us that: you are entitled to purchase our services; that you are not subject to any trade sanction; and that we may use such payment information and details provided by you in order to pay for the specified services (and for us to process such payment). 

If you are entitled to a refund under these Terms we will credit that refund to the card or other payment method you used to submit payment (unless it has expired, in which case we will contact you). If at any time we do not receive payment or your payment authorisation subsequently expires or is cancelled, we may immediately cancel your order. 

Unless otherwise indicated, the prices we state are exclusive of VAT (or other similar sales tax) which, if applicable, must be paid in addition.
