Privacy Number Service
What is the Privacy Number Service and how does it work?
The PNS is a service to keep personal details, in this case phone number, hidden from other users of the website. This is done so that no one can use the information held on our system for purposes other than contacting Job Seekers concerning their CV. We replace phone numbers with our own 070 number, which when a user calls, redirects them to the phone numbers entered while registering that CV.
How much does using the service cost ?
The Privacy Number Service is free to all Job Seekers.
At UKJobs.net we provide our services to Job Seekers free of charge, in order to continue to do so we make a small amount of revenue from the 070 service that we now offer. This has also been universally welcomed for the privacy that it now offers our job seekers. Recruiters calling a PNS Number from a standard BT home or business phone are charged at the rate of 37 pence per minute (ppm) peak, 25ppm evening and 12.5ppm at the weekend, when dialed from a BT land line. Calls are billed per second when supported by your fixed line network operator.
The cost of calling a PNS Number from mobile phone networks will vary depending on the mobile operator the call is being made through. If in doubt, callers are encouraged to confirm with their mobile operator the charge for calling a PNS Number (PNS Numbers are those with the prefix 070). Mobile operators are obliged to make their call charges readily available to their customers. Per second billing only applies on calls to a PNS Number where your mobile network operator supports this.
What other advantages does the service offer?
When a 070 number is called the service will hunt up to 2 different numbers to connect you to the Job Seeker. If the item is no longer available a recorded message will tell the caller immediately to save time and effort.
Call Referral Service
UKJobs operate a directory call referral service on this site.
This means that when a job seeker dials any of the 0871 numbers listed on our site their call will then be transferred to the number of the business or individual they wish to speak to.
Their call will be transferred with the absolute minimum of delay and will cost just 10 pence per minute or billed in seconds if supported by their network provider.
Should users experience any difficulty or have any query regarding our call referral service please call 01327 844099 or email email@example.com. Calls to this number are charged at your standard network rate.
