Looking for work?
A heads up for all you out-of-work diggers out there (but not a blatant/illegal advert Mr BAJR)

( Sorry to say but the bit I have deleted was a bit of a blatant job advert --- if people want to advertise work - then they only have to abide by BAJR regulations and then advertise through BAJR --- if they don't then they have to find other ways to ) BAJR EDIT

I can see that this is being mirrored in the increase in jobs advertised on BAJR - a little good news for everyone!:face-approve:
Se above. if you want to advertise for people... you know how to do it. then click on ADD JOB
Hmmmm.....I don't see how the deleted text can be construed as a sneaky job advert. I mentioned no names (and actually was talking in general about companies in the north).

Don't think I broke any AUP's (but i could be wrong)

As you well know, getting a job in archaeology is often about tenacity and timing. I only mentioned it as I think at least two of the potential companies involved are unlikely to advertise.

But its your site, your rules......and I'll drop it if you demand.
Best drop it. - not a demand - more of a request not to be cheeky

THe reason people come to BAJR to look for jobs is because they know that every job on BAJR comes with a seal of approval. and if I make a mistake then there is a comeback and if the company takes the p#ss then there is a comeback. If a company - for whatever reason - does not wish to advertise with BAJR, then that is its business, you just have to wonder why - after all, the only rules that count are the ones that protect the employee for the company. If they are unlikely to advertise, then that must be because they don't need to. So building up hopes for people unnecessarily? OR if they don't have enough people and need more, then why not advertise with BAJR? After all, they only have to agree to pay the minimum and treat staff fairly - surely that is not too much to ask of a company?

So straight up.

Company advertises with BAJR.... fine by me and those who apply. Company not advertise with BAJR... fine by me. but BAJR is not the place to suggest to people that they can then send in CVs to these companies that will not advertise.

Hope that makes it clear that any request to contact companies that do not advertise with BAJR is construed as an advert and not a very welcome one. Those companies who need staff will advertise with BAJR ---- the one to trust.
Yeah, no worries.
So no one is allowed to post about work they have heard of coming up unless it appears on the bajr job list.
You got it. Otherwise the point of BAJR is lost. I personally check and validate each job, I ensure a level of pay and conditions... ie... the following requirements for advertising on BAJR are this:

4: Do you have any responsibility for the jobs you advertise?

BAJR does try to keep an eye on what is going on... it is quite often like the proverbial swan with a gentle glide on the surface and a frantic paddling beneath. I am grateful to the companies that advertise through BAJR for their support and help in maintaining a standard.
The jobs you never see are ones that pay beneath the BAJR set pay levels or have conditions that are not in keeping with the IfA Codes and Conducts that BAJR not only recommends as a standard, but upholds as a supporter of the IfA. If you have a problem with either a company that advertises (they are in breach of H&S or Pay Levels or Employment Entitlements) then please get in touch and we can try to negotiate an amicable solution. The same is true for a company with a problem staff member. I am only able to act if I am informed of problems and will carry out investigations in an attempt to find a reasonable solution.


So if you start telling people about jobs with companies that don't want to appear on BAJR (for whatever reason) then why should the companies that do want to appear on BAJR, and do uphold the relevant pay and conditions document bother? I have a duty to the advertisers and to those that are seeking work. If you know about a job and the company don't want to appear on BAJR, then first ask yourself why not?

Every company is welcome as long as they pay on or over the Grade levels. ( something I can police, IF people advertise through me, rather than on this forum. )

Plus if you look at the Terms and Condition in the AUP section there is this:
* Do Not post any material or text or link that may be construed as advertising posts, employment or other form of profit making project/course or similar without first checking with BAJR by personal email. failure to do so may result in the posting being removed and a warning.

So lets just pretend you did not know that and take the hint :face-approve: If you know of any companies that are seeking staff then you may suggest to them they get in touch, so that the advert can be viewed by a large audience. All they have to do is get in touch like everyone else.
