Use of the Site

The Capital Recruit website, mobile application, and social media platforms (collectively, the “Platforms”) provide career guidance and services to job seekers. Employers can use Capital Recruit’ services to advertise available positions to job searchers and identify qualified individuals by scanning the database of Capital Recruit users.

You must register with Capital Recruit in order to build a profile and submit applications for open positions. It is your obligation to make sure that your profile is correct, current, and that you are not giving a misleading impression of who you are through omission or by providing fake information. Your profile’s accuracy as well as any job openings placed on our platforms are not within the control of Capital Recruit.

You will be added to our user database when you create a profile on Capital Recruit so that employers can find you there. Your profile is made up of the data you give us, the documents you upload, the date of your most recent activity, and a record of all the jobs you’ve applied for. We might use publicly accessible data gathered from other parties to improve your Profile. Links to any social media platforms that we utilize to enhance the Profile may be included in this supplementary information. In these cases, we do not vet or verify the accuracy, correctness, or completeness of such data used to enhance the Profile, and no assurance is given that any enhancements to the Profile will be error-free or ultimately achieve any enhancement to the Profile. It is your responsibility to confirm the accuracy of such information.

Employers who use our service will be able to see you right away in the user database. You have the option to choose not to appear at all in the user database. In the profile management section, you can modify your visibility preferences.

When you choose to register for Capital Recruit, we will keep a record of your profile until you ask us to remove it from the user database.

In order to keep you informed of new opportunities, when you create a profile with Capital Recruit, we will send you emails of new jobs that match your profile. In the profile management section, you can unsubscribe from these alerts based on your profile.

You authorize Capital Recruit to provide the employer or recruiting agency with information about your profile when you apply for a position that has been posted on one of our Platforms.

While Capital Recruit makes reasonable steps to verify job advertisements posted on the website, we cannot guarantee that every job represents a legitimate job opening. Capital Recruit does not guarantee the availability or accuracy of a job offered on our Platforms. Capital Recruit cannot assure you that your application will be accepted for a position. Which candidates will be taken into consideration is up to the company who is advertising the position.

By using our platforms, you consent to the use of your data for statistical reporting, including the anonymized and aggregated reporting of industry trends.

You acknowledge and concur that the Platforms are not compliant with data privacy laws other than those that apply to the Republic of South Africa and that their sole purpose is to market job openings to jobseekers based in that country.
