  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 JobsAware text and link;

  10. have a duty to report and share information about fraud with JobsAware.
