3.0 Recruitment Advertising

3.1 Commencement of Services. Job postings are a benefit of being a HOSPA member. Membership fees must have been paid before posting a job. You will be notified by email when your job adverts have gone live on our Website. A job advertisement will remain live for 1 month unless requested otherwise.

3.2 Advertising Rules. The Hospitality Professionals Association has rules regarding the content of job postings on our Website. HOSPA reserves the right to refuse or remove any job postings that breach these rules. The rules may change from time to time and you are advised to refer to them regularly.

The Rules are:

  • No gratuitous use of keywords in job descriptions or job titles. Gratuitous means deliberately inserting words, strings of words, or repeating job titles, with the intention of increasing the number of page views.
  • Job advertisements placed on hospa.org must be for genuine vacancies only, and not for other products or services, either relating to or unrelated to recruitment including, but not limited to, affiliate schemes, pyramid selling schemes or any other so called 'business opportunity'.
  • We may remove from hospa.org any advertisement which contains content or links to a site which, in our opinion, is defamatory, illegal or objectionable or will bring the Hospitality Professionals Association into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claims or liability arising from content or links contained in your advertisements.
  • Once a job application has been made by an individual to the company, the application is the responsibility of the company.

3.3 Illegal Advertisements. Advertisements which appear to discriminate on grounds of sex, race, beliefs or disability are illegal and may result in proceedings being taken against both the advertiser and the publisher. If we believe that an advertisement may be discriminatory we may, at our discretion, either amend the advertisement or remove it from our Website without liability to you and we will inform you accordingly.

3.4 Responses to Advertisements. You agree to deal fairly and professionally with individuals who may respond to an advertisement you have posted and not do anything which may bring the Hospitality Professionals Association into disrepute. You will indemnify us from and against any claim brought by an individual against the Hospitality Professionals Association arising from your breach of this obligation or any other of these terms and conditions.
