At the Field, we are here to revolutionise employment by levelling up opportunities for everyone. At the core of who we are, we believe that everyone deserves the right to realise their employment potential in an environment that is safe, kind, and respectful.
To help make this happen, everyone who uses the Field must follow our Community Guidelines and accept our Terms and Conditions. Not doing so may mean you lose access to our site and the exciting opportunities that come with it.
We believe transparency goes both ways, so before we explore community guidelines for our users, the Field team wanted to share some of our own.
Nothing for people with disability, without people with disability
The Field is an employment space designed by people with disability and we intend for it to stay that way. In all our decision-making, we will elevate the experiences of people with disability and make sure that disability remains at the forefront of everything we do.
Continue to learn and grow from our community
We are new to the world of online recruitment and are excited to see how we can get better. We will listen to and harness feedback from our community to continue to grow and improve the Field. If you have an accessibility or feature request, an idea to improve your experience or would just like to tell us how you’re using the Field, we want to know.
Prioritise safety and support
Everyone should feel safe and supported when using the Field. Accessibility and inclusion are key to our platform, and we will actively build features, tools and resources to make sure our community feels safe. If you have questions for our team or are having trouble with any aspect of our platform, we will be there to help you find a solution. We will pay attention to what matters for the safety, security and integrity of the Field’s community.
Combat unconscious bias and misconceptions
The Field is here to challenge the unconscious bias and misconceptions that play a big part in the employment space. We will continue to find and remove barriers to employment for people with disability and employers, and appreciate when you highlight barriers we may not know about.
Trust and respect are key
We know that when you use the Field, you are trusting us with your personal or business information. We will respect that trust in how we collect information, build our resources, features and services, and how we communicate with our users.
Be honest and authentic
The Field is a place where you can be authentically yourself. Where job seekers and organisations meet on a level playing field to engage honestly and genuinely in the job market. These values are key to making sure everyone can enjoy the Field in a productive, positive, and safe environment.
As part of our community, you must only include information on the Field you know to be true and authentic. Misrepresenting yourself or your organisation in any way is not in line with our core values and impacts the platform’s safety. We actively monitor the Field to remove misinformation and appreciate when you report false content we might have missed.
Prioritise respect, safety and open communication
We know that the employment market can be challenging, and full of different opinions and experiences. Our growing and diverse community is a huge part of what makes the Field so great. It also means you may come across opinions that differ from your own. As part of the Field community, engaging in open and respectful communication, even when you may disagree with something or someone, is key to making the platform safe and enjoyable for everyone.
The Field has zero tolerance for hate speech, abusive, illegal and/or exploitative behaviour, and any other unsafe behaviour toward others. We review the safety and respect on our site continually, and will remove users and content that breach these values. Acting with respect is vital to being part of the Field, and includes treating all people fairly, recognising and valuing difference, and being kind and empathetic.
Maintain privacy and trust
Being a part of the job market can be a nerve-wracking experience, whether you’re looking for a new job, or hiring someone new into your team. Feeling confident and empowered to share information is hugely important to a positive employment experience, and receiving information from someone about themselves or their organisation is an act of trust.
As part of our community, you must maintain the privacy of others, and treat the sharing of information with confidentiality and respect. Our job site is designed for employment, and when you communicate with others on the Field, it must be related to genuine employment opportunities, and not for solicitation of any kind.
Be open to opportunity
The Field levels up opportunities for everyone and purposefully champions diversity and inclusivity. As a part of our community, we know you are on the same page, and don’t mind putting in some extra effort to find the right fit for yourself or your organisation. Not everyone loves seeing themselves on camera, but including the finer details like videos and photos improves accessibility and helps others get to know the real you in more detail.
Be open to trying out the Field’s features and if you have any suggestions for new ones, we’d love to hear them.
