asking whether the candidate has any criminal convictions (although, for the avoidance of doubt, Home Care Careers will make no further enquiry in this regard)
checking that the candidate lives in an area where they can access the job being advertised

When payment has been made for the services, we may take a number of steps immediately, including pre-booking advertising on a number of different online job boards and paying for pay-per-click advertising on social media websites and on Google. These costs may be incurred prior to the advert going live and are non-refundable to us.

In the event that we have not sent you the guaranteed minimum number of candidates, we will continue to advertise at our expense, with no further cost to you, until the guaranteed number of screened candidates has been sent to you.
For the avoidance of doubt, we do not guarantee that you will employ the ten candidates that we send to you, or any number of them.
