And Recruitment industry worth more to UK economy than ever before. (https://www.rec.uk.com/news-and-policy/press-releases/recruitment-industry-worth-more-to-uk-economy-than-ever-before)
Which is great news but in reality it comes with a cost of frauds, malpractices, misleading and non regulated which is missing heavily in penalization or control and most of them are time wasters for who actually looking for a job.
So if you found that job advertised is actually not an advertise but luring you for the leads to generate for the profiling and misguide you. what you can do about it?
Here are the resources and you can do more than ever. I am just waiting if I can file a small claims against my time and distress I suffered due diligences.
