In order to keep up the quality of the TM jobs board, we ask both candidates and companies to abide by a few rules whilst using the site. Find out about rules for companies advertising jobs here.
For candidates, we operate a '3 strikes' rule regarding inappropriate applications. If you do not have the necessary skills/experience required for the job, please be aware that the company may report your application which could lead to your account being suspended or barred from the site.
Every application that is reported to us will be dealt with individually and cross referenced with the original job posting. We will then determine if the application has been unfairly reported due to a lack of information in the original job advert.
After one inappropriate application has been reported to us, the individual will be given a written warning via email that 1 strike has been placed against their account. Once 3 strikes are reached, the account holder will be notified via email that their account has been removed from the site.
Information for company users:
If an individual has applied inappropriately to a job advert, ignoring criteria specified in the ad, then we are keen to know. To report an application, follow the link at the bottom of the application email which will alert us of this. We will treat your report anonymously, but please think carefully before reporting. To limit irrelevant applications, please include as much information as possible when posting your job advert & ensure you've filled in the 'job match fields'.
Reasons why an application may be reported:
- Lack of skills stated as compulsory in the job ad
- Lack of experience as detailed in the job ad
- The application is for an unadvertised position
- The candidate has equated job roles on college/university films with broadcast credits
What to do if you have been reported:
Everyone deserves a second chance, and we’re keen that you’re able to use the site to secure your next role. We’re more than happy for you to continue using the site, so to get the best results, follow our tips below to avoid another reported application…
- Rather than blanket applying for jobs using the same covering message, check that each application is tailored to clearly state why your skills and experience match what the company are looking for as stated in their advert
- Be realistic – do not equate job roles at college/ university with broadcast credits
- Be honest about your experience – you may not have everything they are looking for, but lying about past roles will catch up with you quickly
- If the advert states ‘must have’ criteria, think carefully if you fit this before applying
- Ensure that the CV you attach is up to date, with all relevant credits listed
- Only apply for each role once – repeatedly sending an application will start to annoy the employer
- Only send your CV for roles that are advertised
Please note: No refunds will be given to Pro members with a suspended account.
