Advertising Guidelines on Lifestyle CareersAdvertisers on Lifestyle Careers agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions. Ensure that these guidelines are followed when placing job advertisements to the site.
By using our site, you indicate that you accept these guidelines and our Terms & Conditions and that you agree to abide by them. If you do not agree to these Advertising Guidelines please refrain from using our site.
All job advertisements are subject to approval
All advertisements will be reviewed and are subject to approval by our Support Team before placement on the site. We reserve the right to reject any advertising, graphic, text description or URL. Lifestyle Careers agrees to use reasonable efforts to publish advertisements in the shortest possible time frame. We are not liable for any loss or damage incurred by an Advertiser as a result of any failure or delay in listing an advertisement.
Job Ads are reserved for advertisements which carry a specific and genuine offer of employment.
The categories that advertisements are placed under can often have a greater effect on Job Seekers. Many job and business opportunity advertisements are potentially misleading simply because that appears under inappropriate headings. It is important to place all advertisements under the right category. Misleading job and business opportunity advertisements cause job seekers a great deal of hardship and difficulty.
Positions vacant are reserved for positions involving work as a full time, part time, job share, casual employee etc. Typically such jobs offer a regular paid wage or salary and at least some conditions such as holiday pay, sick leave, work cover or workers compensation.
Positions which don't involve an employer/employee relationship should be advertised under such headings as self employment, freelance, business opportunities or self employment. It is important that these kinds of advertisements are not placed in the same section as general positions vacant advertisements.
Commission only work typically involves selling goods or services for a percentage of sales receipts. To avoid misleading Job Seekers, the exact terms of remuneration should be specified in the ad, for example commission only.
Home based business and self employment business opportunities. Legal provisions outlaw false and misleading representations for these types of business, particularly those concerning the risk or profitability of the business. Self employment or business opportunity ads should be placed in these categories and not the working from home category.
Advertisers acknowledge and agree that they must only advertise one job role per job advertisement posted on to site. A single, specific location for each job posting (i.e. city, state, and country) must be stated. This allows jobs seekers to better target their searches, providing you only the most qualified applicants. Where Advertisers have breached this obligation and have advertised multiple job roles in the one job advertisement, we reserve the right to charge the Advertiser for the number of job roles advertised in the one job advertisement posted.
Logos must be static images of 150 x 150 pixels, gif or jpg only, with a maximum size of size of 30k to appear in job search results.
Job seekers who have suffered loss or damage as a result of a misleading or illegal advertisement may be able to seek damages or others orders. The advertisement should clearly describe the work involved in the position. It is also desirable that the advertisement identify the industry that the position is within.
Advertisements can mislead job seekers simply because they are placed under an inappropriate category. Please ensure all advertisements are in the correct categories. It is misleading to place an advertisement under the wrong category, e.g. working from home when you are really offering a business opportunity.
Many Job Seekers are misled because of non disclosure (or inadequate) of remuneration. The advertisement should include details about how remuneration will come about.
If you are placing advertisements under self employment or business opportunity you should clearly state the realistically expected return of the venture and be able to provide proof of the figures you quote. You should also ensure that you are complying with and disclosure requirements you may have under the law, especially the Corporations Act 2001.
Advertisers agree not to use the site to post any pyramid scheme and also agree not to ask or require any candidate to pay a fee, charge, cost or any money whatsoever to apply for any job advertised on the Site whether such fee, charge, cost or money is asked or required of the candidate in the job advertisement itself or in any communication with the candidate that takes place as a result of a job advertisement placed on the Site.
Prospective Job Seekers should not be forced to call a premium rate number (1900 or 0055) to investigate potential vacancies.
The Advertiser profile gives an opportunity to provide a website link to your business. Information presented by way of a link should not attempt to change the main message of the advertisement.
