Universal Jobmatch takes prompt action over clinical trial ‘jobs’ posting

Some of you may have noticed some twitter traffic over the weekend about participation in clinical trials being advertised as job opportunities on Universal Jobmatch.

Thanks to @celticchickadee for alerting me to this by the way.

Anyway, colleagues at NIHR have followed up, the posting has been removed and this is the official line from the Department of Work and Pensions:

A DWP spokesperson said:
“These postings are inappropriate for Universal Jobmatch and have been taken down. When advertising jobs on Universal Jobmatch, employers have to agree to a number of terms and conditions to use the service. Where an inappropriate job is identified, or where an employer doesn’t adhere to the terms and conditions, it is quickly removed.”

Good to see the wheels move quickly on this.
