  3. Only advertise jobs that do exist and the agency has permission to advertise
  4. Treat job seeker information confidentially and only share with express consent
  5. Pay job seekers promptly and correctly within openly agreed timescales and be upfront about any charges to job seekers

  7. Have an agreed, transparent process in place to investigate job seeker complaints quickly and professionally
  8. Supply in writing clear and full information to the job seeker about the work assignment
