1. Recruitment Services

By approving and submitting a job opportunity to Escape the City (escapethecity.org) or engaging Escape the City’s search services the Employer thereby commits to these terms and the associated charges.

  1. Job Adverts
    Job adverts are listed on the site for a specified period of time in exchange for a listing fee agreed between the Employer and Escape the City Ltd.
    The advert is published ‘live’ on the site once the payment has cleared. This payment is non-refundable. Escape the City will commit to reasonable extensions of the job listing to attract further attention. The length of the extension is Escape the City’s decision.
    If (for whatever reason) a job listing goes live before the payment has been processed the Employer is still committed to completing the payment (regardless of whether the listing is then removed).
  2. Search Services
    The search services involve Escape the City searching for a shortlist of candidates on behalf of the Employer. The Employer commits to paying a pre-specified fee (agreed in writing via email) if they successfully hire an Escape the City member for the position.
    The terms of this agreement specify that the Employer has committed to paying the pre-agreed commission fee if an Escape the City member who has viewed the job listing then successfully applies for the job, is offered the job, and accepts.
    Once a successful hire has been confirmed (job offer accepted) the payment is due immediately and the Employer will be invoiced by Escape the City via email.
  3. Filtering Applicants
    By engaging Escape the City for either a Job Advert or the Search Services the Employer has given Escape the City permission to filter candidates on their behalf. Where relevant Escape the City will use this mandate to only pass the Employer relevant candidates. The fact that Escape the City can filter on behalf of the Employer forms part of the Member terms and conditions.
  4. Tracking Applicants
    The Escape the City team will usually manage the application process for these positions and will pass on a shortlist of candidates to the Employer. However, sometimes Escape the City members will apply directly to the organisation without mentioning Escape the City despite having seen the listing on escapethecity.org. We ask all our candidates to mention Escape the City in their cover letters.
    Escape the City’s systems provide access to a list of names and email addresses of those Escape the City members who have viewed the job listing. Escape the City can provide this list on request to the Employer for crosschecking in the unlikely event of a dispute.
    Agreeing to these terms and conditions in relation to a job listing or a search agreement is legally binding and should be seen as constituting a contract between the Employer and Escape the City.
  5. Conduct of Escape the City Members, Applicants and Hires
    Although we will of course work to ensure the accuracy and integrity of applications, Escape the City is not responsible for the conduct of people using the site to apply for jobs.
    We are unable to guarantee the accuracy or truth of applications or the conduct of people using the site to apply for jobs, although we will block / ban people who are found to be using the site in a misleading fashion.
    Escape the City is not responsible for the behaviour or conduct of Escape the City members who are hired as a result of a job listing or a search. We are providing an introduction service, however we cannot be held legally responsible for any negative results from the introductions.
