Access to the site is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the site without notice. We will not be liable if, for any reason, the site is unavailable at any time or for any period.  From time to time, we may restrict access to some or all parts of the site.

JobSpot is a free online recruitment and employment information service.  The services available to employers and job seekers are described below (the “Services”).


Services available to employers:


  • Employers may use the site to advertise paid commercial work (permanent, contract, temporary), internships, voluntary and paid or unpaid work experience positions;
  • Each advert will remain online for 30 days commencing on the date active posting, unless otherwise specified or extended by you. You may remove adverts from the site at any time by contacting the JobSpot administrator at jobspot@iiuk.org.  Adverts may be resubmitted at any time.
  • You may use the CV database to search for job seekers that best fit your hiring needs. This facility allows you to control the candidate-search process. You may also conduct a confidential search (i.e. search for candidates without advertising your position). Candidates you locate in a confidential search will only know that you reviewed their profile after you contact them.


Services available to job seekers:


  • Job seekers may submit responses to positions advertised by employers.
  • You may also upload your CV onto the site – with your permission, this will be available for employers to view in order to assess your suitability for any roles which may or may not be advertised on the site.
  • You may also request assistance with CV writing, interview techniques and assistance with returning to work from EPB.  If you indicate that you wish to take advantage of this Service, a member of EPB will contact you.
