ASA Adjudication on Just Recruitment Global Ltd
Just Recruitment Global Ltd
29 August 2012
Number of complaints:
A job ad, on a regional newspaper website, featured text which stated "FINANCE CONTROLLER A role as a Financial Controller has opened up in a fast growing business based in Whitley".
The complainant challenged whether the ad breached the Code, because it did not include full contact details for Just Recruitment Global.
CAP Code (Edition 12)
Just Recruitment Global did not respond to the ASA's enquiries.
The ASA was concerned by Just Recruitment Global's lack of response and apparent disregard for the Code, which was a breach of CAP Code (Edition 12) rule 1.7 (Unreasonable delay). We reminded them of their responsibility to respond promptly to our enquiries and we told them to do so in future.
We noted the CAP Code required that employment agencies and employment businesses made clear in their marketing communications their full names and contact details. Because the ad did not, we concluded that it breached the Code.
The ad breached CAP Code (Edition 12) rules 3.1 and 3.3 (Misleading advertising), 20.3 (Employment, homework schemes and business opportunities).
The ad must not appear again in its current form. We told Just Recruitment Global to ensure ads included their full contact details in future. We asked CAP to inform its members of the problem with Just Recruitment Global.
