Rules for Job Ads

Find out what you need to consider when posting your job ads

Gigajob aims to connect employers and employees quickly and easily – in the nicest possible way. That's why we would like to ask you to communicate nicely and respectfully.

Also, there have to be a few rules which are binding for everyone. We reserve the right to edit, shorten or delete any ad that does not adhere to the Gigajob rules. When using Gigajob, please abide by these rules:

  • spacer No contact data Your Gigajob ad must not contain any contact data. Use of URLs, phone numbers, email, or postal addresses is not allowed. First contact is only possible through the Gigajob contact form. Paid ads are the only exception.
  • spacer No sex Ads which contain or are related to sex/erotica are not allowed on Gigajob. The use of offensive language is also forbidden.
  • spacer Real job ads only Your job ads have to be real JOB ads. Gigajob is not the right place for lonely hearts or sales ads.
  • spacer One job ad per opening Posting the same ad more than once on Gigajob is not allowed. This includes posting two or more ads which are just a tiny bit different but essentially describe the same job.
  • spacer Nothing wishy-washy Your ad has to point out clearly what kind of job you're offering. The main job content and responsibilities have to be named. We do not accept ads which aren't formulated precisely or don't contain enough information on the position.
  • spacer No promotion/advertising Even though it is understandable that you want to point out the PROs of your company or the potential workplace, we draw the line at ads that seem to be for advertising reasons only. The main purpose of every ad has to be the filling of vacancies.
  • spacer No advance payment We are very strict when it comes to advance payment. You are not allowed to ask potential employees to pay for anything in advance. This goes for e-books, flight tickets, insurance, calling hotlines, prepayment for sales products, and so on.
  • spacer No rudeness It is not acceptable to post ads which break the law or lead others to do so. Ads with political, religious or offensive content of any kind are also strictly forbidden.
