Description of Services:
Candidate Source provides an ad hoc online candidate sourcing service which includes:

  • Professional copywriting of The Client’s advert to manipulate job board search engines to ensure maximum exposure of your vacancy to relevant job seekers;
  • Recommendation of which job boards should be used to deliver the best response;
  • Publishing of The Client’s advertisement for the period of 1 week on a package well-known mainstream job boards and a selection of the most appropriate niche job boards simultaneously;
  • A turnaround time of 4 working hours from receipt of the full vacancy brief;
  • Filtering your response and forwarding those applications that meet your vacancy criteria to the e-mail address of your choice;
  • Declining the unsuccessful candidates on your behalf.


In the event that The Client chooses to forego the filtering service, then The Client will receive all of the applications to their advertisement.  Candidate Source will not retain or use such applications for any other purpose or customer.

Candidate Source does not retain applications and is unable to retrieve applications if the Client chooses to forgo the filtering service and have them sent directly to their own email address.

Where the same vacancy is to be advertised for multiple locations or under multiple sectors, The Client will be required to purchase one advertisement for each location or sector.

Vacancies will be advertised under the Candidate Source brand and there is an explanation in the advertisement that the advertisement is placed on behalf of our Client who will receive and handle the application.

This package is only available to Recruitment Agencies and other Intermediaries and will not be sold directly to end users.

Submission of a vacancy for this service is deemed as acceptance of these terms and conditions which are correct at the date of issue.
