Anyone in the Equestrian Industry looking for a job or an employee anywhere in the world.
The site works using a system of free Guest Membership
and paid Full Membership
. Jobseekers (the grooms) and employers (the Yards) register for free as Guest Members
. Yards must upgrade to Full Membership to allow them to contact the Jobseekers, whilst Jobseekers are only required to upgrade to Full Membership if they wish to include their contact details in a message to a Guest Yard. Jobseekers may contact Full Member Yards for free.
Yards that are Guest Members can be contacted by Jobseekers that are Guest Members via our private messaging system without contact details. This allows Yards to gauge interest in their vacancy before committing to a paid Full Membership. Full membership gives yards direct access to all Jobseekers and allows all Jobseekers (both Guest and Full members) to contact Yards directly. Jobseekers and Yards can choose how they would prefer to be contacted, whether by internal messages, phone or email.
Our site is free to register, search our database and to display the Jobseeker profiles and Job details. Guest Yards must upgrade to paid Full Membership to contact the Jobseekers whilst Jobseekers need only upgrade to Full Membership if they wish to include their contact details when messaging the Guest Yards.
You do not need to register to search our database for Jobs or view the profiles of Jobseekers. You will need to register if you want to contact any of the Jobseekers/Yards. Registration is free, however a paid Full Membership is required if you want to contact the Jobseekers or allow them to contact you with their contact details.
Yes, registration is free. However a paid Full Membership is required if you want to contact the Jobseekers or allow them to contact you with their contact details.
A.We do not charge a placement fee but when you want to contact Jobseekers directly you must upgrade your account to Full Membership by paying a Membership Fee which will give you 6 months or 12 months access to all Jobseekers on the site. As a Full Member the Jobseekers will also be able to contact you directly.
A.No. This is reflected in our charges. We believe the Yards (employers) should make their own choice about who would be suitable for their Yard which is why we make as much information available about the Jobseeker as possible.
Yes, all Jobseekers have a facility in their account to upload their references. These are viewable by Full Members only. Sometimes, Jobseekers do not have the facilities at their end to put their documents on their profile but will provide them when asked to do so.
No, unless in exceptional circumstances. There is a reason for this though! Because Full Membership is immediate, there have been a few times we have had employers upgrade to Full Membership, fill their vacancy with a Jobseeker from our site and then demand their money back. We just cannot afford to do that and it is not fair on anyone else!
A.If you are an agency or working for an agency you must register a Business Account which will allow you to place a business advert. Agencies cannot register as a Yard or Jobseeker as this is against our Terms and Conditions.
A.Some Jobseekers, particularly those from most non EU countries, require a visa. We do not issue visas. The Jobseeker must apply to the embassy/consulate in their own country, of the country they are going to. This process usually takes around 2 weeks. Some applications can take longer especially if they are asked to sit a second interview. The employer will need to provide any supporting documentation to the Jobseekers before the Jobseeker makes her/his application.
The Jobseeker's account status is shown at the top of their profile page. If the Jobseeker has been placed or is no longer looking for a job their Account Status
will show Placed
or Not looking
Sometimes a Jobseeker can forget to update their status. Should you contact a Jobseeker and they have already found a job then please contact support so that we can update their status.
The Signed-In, Recent Sign-Ins and Unread Msgs fields of the profile's Status provide a good indication of whether a Jobseeker is still looking.
Signed-In shows when the Jobseeker last signed into their account, Recent Sign-Ins shows the number of times the Jobseeker signed in, in the last 14 days and Unread Msgs shows the number of unread messages in the Jobseeker's Inbox.
Upon completion of your registration an account activation code will be sent to the email address you provided in your registration. The email should arrive within a couple of minutes. Please check your Junk/Spam folder before contacting us
as sometimes our emails can be incorrectly interpreted as junk/spam. If you have entered the wrong email address in your registration please sign in to your account using the wrong email address and then click the Sign In Details
link on the Account Home page. You can then request the code again to the new email address.
When a Jobseeker or Yard first registers on the site they become a Guest Member. Guest Yards cannot contact Jobseekers and can only receive messages from Guest Jobseekers that contain no contact details and which only express an interest in their vacancy. Guest Yards can receive messages from Jobseekers that contain contact details providing the Jobseeker is a Full Member.
A Full Member is a Jobseeker or Yard who has upgraded their Guest Member account to Full Membership by paying the membership fee in order to have contact with all the Jobseekers/Yards (both Guest and Gull members) in our database.
No, unless your Full Membership has expired in which case you will have to renew.
A.If you have used a credit card, membership is immediate. (But if it is not showing in your account, just sign out and then sign back in again). However, if you are paying by cheque we do have to wait 3 days for clearance.
