Description of the Service

3.1 For Candidates

joppy.me is an online service that connects Candidates with Employers via a clear and non-legally binding Visibility Process. As a Candidate, you have the opportunity to find employment in a transparent manner by allowing multiple Employers to send you Interview Requests before you even begin the interview process. The use of joppy.me is totally free for Candidates. The Visibility Process is non-binding and does not create any contractual obligations between the Employer and you. It is designed to maximise your value in the market and to attract multiple Employers effectively, quickly and without obligation.

3.2 For Employers

As an Employer, joppy.me gives you the chance to see qualified profiles and reduce the costs associated with recruitment. You have the right to send Interview Requests to the Candidates listed on joppy.me whose profiles correspond to those your organisation is seeking. These Interview Requests are not binding in nature and are without obligation. They do not constitute the formation of an employment contract binding you in any way whatsoever to the Candidates. A fee is due only on employment or other engagement of a Candidate.

3.3 Verification

joppy.me does not conduct any investigations into the experience of its Users and does not perform any verification of the statements made by Users; however, joppy.me reserves the right to carry out any such checks or to use any other valid means by using publicly available information. Therefore, Users are responsible for investigations, or any other means of due diligence, required before any employment or other engagement to verify the qualities, experience and references of Candidates and the suitability of Employers.
