Information graphic jobs in the UK have been affected by a botched recruitment process and a failure to contact the employers of the people who will be working for them, according to a report by job-search site JobCentre.co.uk.
The report says more than half of the jobs advertised for information graphics jobs are now advertised online.
In a recent interview, a recruiter for the recruitment agency said: “We are a digital agency and we are not a recruitment agency.”
Jobcentre’s report said that the failure to notify the employers was compounded by a lack of communication between the employer and the applicant, which left them feeling unsure whether the job was real or not.
The company that ran the job offered the candidate a temporary contract that would last two weeks.
However, the job did not have a salary.
JobCentre says the recruiter also did not offer any training to the candidate, making the process of finding the right person to work for them difficult.
It said: “”We can only guess what the reason for the delay is, but I do not think it is because of any training or job-seeking skills that the candidates lack.
The job posted online to be a graphic designer for a web development firm, with an online portfolio, was offered for £20,000 a year. “
We don’t know who the applicant was, or what they are interested in, so we are unable to make any decision as to whether the person is suitable to do the job,” he said.
The job posted online to be a graphic designer for a web development firm, with an online portfolio, was offered for £20,000 a year.
There was no indication of what the company was looking for in an applicant, with only the job description, a link to the website and an image of the candidate.
When JobCentere contacted the firm, it told the recruiser it would be investigating the issue.
“I’m a firm of 20, so I’m pretty familiar with the industry and have worked with a number of people, so this is an unusual situation,” said the recruitor, who did not want to be named.
He said he had been approached by other people who had lost jobs in similar circumstances and the experience had been frustrating.
Employers often take a risk when they hire people and often it is for the wrong reasons, he said, adding that the recruitment process was a “whitewash”.
“It’s not a job you should be doing if you want to make a living,” he added.
Jobcentere says it has seen some problems with online recruitment, but that there was “no indication” of any fraud.
According to JobCenters research, online recruitment has tripled in the past four years.
Although the recruitment companies do not provide job vacancies on their websites, it is a common practice in some sectors.
For example, a large number of young people are employed as graphic designers on the job search site Quill.co, and many of those job postings are not advertised on the site.
A spokesman for JobCentremortgage said: “This was a recruitment issue that was handled very quickly and professionally.
It has been resolved as soon as possible.
We are aware that some of the images we have on the website are not accurate and we will be investigating them in conjunction with Jobcentre.”
The spokesman said that JobCentrebut had taken down all the images from the site and that the company had hired an independent company to investigate.
JobCentere has previously highlighted how many job-seeker problems have been caused by poor job-hunting practices.
Many of the job-scam sites use the same job-hunt techniques, such as posting jobs to people who already have jobs, or requiring the applicants to provide personal details.
Jobseeker website Jobseeker, for example, uses the same technique, requiring applicants to submit a job listing, a cover letter and a CV.
Despite the recent job-placement scandal, JobCentreshould not say whether it had experienced any other recent problems related to recruitment.
