Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL


Is Formilink an employment agency?

No. Our site operates as a network through which Opportunity Creators can contact Students/WIS and we do not introduce or supply Students/WIS to Opportunity Creators (or vice versa).

How much does it cost?

£12+VAT for all subscribers (Students/WIS and Opportunity Creators).

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.

Does the Student/WIS member need to physically work at the Opportunity Creators location?

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 an opportunity?

If you have an Opportunity Creator profile on our site you can post as many opportunities 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.
