Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL


Is Formilink an employment agency?

No. Our site operates as a network through which employers can contact work-seekers and we do not introduce or supply work-seekers to employers (or vice versa).

How much does it cost?

£12+VAT for all subscribers (Students and Employees).

Do all opportunities need to be paid roles?

The organisation clearly states on their Formilink advert whether a vacancy is paid, voluntary or other. Other refers to the trading of skills and/or time for products and/or discounts.

Why do you not provide a service to Northern Ireland?

We are unable to provide a full service to Northern Ireland at this time and thought it would be unfair to provide an incomplete service.

Northern Irish users would miss out on our investment into local communities, businesses and students through our community projects.

We will look at providing a service to Northern Ireland as the business grows. If you are resident in Northern Ireland please express your interest and when we receive sufficient interest we will expand the service.

Does the student need to physically work at the organisation's premises?

No, very often work can be undertaken at home, or requires the candidate to be present at an event or temporary workplace.

Can I post a job?

If you have an employer profile on our site you can post as many jobs as you have available.

Why do you invest a proportion of your profits?

We believe that it is important to improve the service that you and local communities receive. By investing we are increasing opportunities for you and exposure within your communities.

Are you part of Help for Heroes?

We are not a Help for Heroes business but we have been supported by them and we support them. That mutual support continues.
