Our Work Finding Agreement Template formalises the arrangement between agencies and job seekers, outlining terms, expectations, and responsibilities for successful placements.

Why this template is necessary

The Work Finding Agreement outlines the terms and conditions agreed upon between a recruitment agency and a job seeker regarding the services provided in finding suitable employment. It specifies the roles, responsibilities, and expectations of both parties throughout the job search process.

This agreement serves as a formal contract, ensuring transparency and clarity in the recruitment process. It establishes a framework for collaboration, enabling the recruitment agency to effectively match job seekers with suitable job opportunities while providing job seekers with guidance and support in securing employment.

Once both parties agree to move forward, the agency would provide the candidate with the Agreement to formalise the terms of their working relationship. This document ensures clarity regarding the services the agency will provide, the obligations of both parties, and the terms of engagement.

  • Employment Agencies Act 1973: Regulates the conduct of employment agencies and businesses that provide services for finding work.

  • Employment Rights Act 1996: Sets out the legal framework for employment contracts and terms, including those related to finding work through agencies.

  • Equality Act 2010: Ensures that the terms and conditions of work finding agreements do not discriminate against individuals based on protected characteristics.

  • Data Protection Act 2018 (incorporating GDPR): Mandates the handling of personal data within work finding agreements in compliance with data protection principles.

  • National Minimum Wage Act 1998: Requires compliance with minimum wage laws and may be relevant to work finding agreements where pay rates are discussed.
