Definition of terms and scope of application
Primework AG, Badenerstrasse 734, 8048 Zurich ("Primework") runs an online platform for staff recruitment services on which job seekers can access job vacancies and companies can place job advertisements. These GTCs govern the legal relationships between people and companies who visit the www.primework.ch online platform ("platform") and access its content (“use” or “usage”) and Primework. An integral part of the GTCs is the data protection declaration to which these GTCs refer. By using the platform, you acknowledge and agree with the GTCs and the data protection declaration.
Offers for job seekers
The platform is designed for job seekers to find out about and apply for job vacancies that are of interest to them. Job seekers do not have any claim to temporary or permanent employment. Primework gives no guarantees in this regard. It is at Primework’s discretion to decide whether it processes a job seeker’s application or not. The job vacancies placed on the platform are purely for information purposes and do not represent a request for an employment contract. Any employment contracts are concluded in separate written agreements either directly with Primework or between the company in question and the job seeker. Job seekers have the option of creating a professional curriculum vitae using the CV configuration tool on the platform. There is no charge for the basic function. They may also apply on the platform for the help of a personal advisor who can help them create and check the application file. Primework charges a small flat fee for this service which is shown on the platform.
You have the option of creating a user account with a personal profile on the platform. Primework does not charge for this service. You must first register on the platform in order to set up a profile. To do so, you create a user ID and password which you then use to login for free access to the profile content you have entered (login area).
