5. Suitability of Recruiters and Job Seeker
5.1 Recruiters and Job Seekers acknowledge and agree that the Job Board is provided for information purposes only. We do not seek to introduce or supply Job Seeker to Recruiters or Recruiters to Job Seeker in respect of any Vacancy or otherwise. We do not act as an employment agency and/or an employment business. This means that we do not have the obligations of an employment agency and/or an employment business under the applicable laws, including any obligation to confirm the identity and/or suitability of a Job Seeker for a particular Vacancy and/or the suitability of a particular Vacancy for a Job Seeker.
5.2 It is therefore the responsibility of a Recruiter to ensure the Job Seeker is suitable for a particular Vacancy, and also the responsibility for the Job Seeker to ensure that the Vacancy and Recruiter is suitable for their purposes. All normal, prudent checks should be carried out by Recruiter and Job Seeker, including identity checks, qualifications, experience, a detailed understanding of the Vacancy (hours, location, pay), health and safety issues and legal requirements.

We shall be entitled to assign or delegate our rights or obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part, to any third party without the prior written consent of the Recruiter or the Job Seeker.
9.3 Any failure by any party to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision.
