As a prospective employee, you have an opportunity to find a position with an employer using this service. Additionally, your use of TheHub is free, and the interview request process does not create any contractual obligations between the employer and you as a prospective employee. The Platform only acts as a tool for prospective employees to explore opportunities without obligations.
The use of the Platform is free for prospective employees. When you use the Job Matching Service, we may require you to provide us information such as your name, phone number and e-mail address at some stage.
