TVCrewFinder – another site to avoid

Yes, another one – another of those scummy sites which pop up every now and then created by people trying to make a fast buck out of hardworking freelancers.

This one is called TVCrewFinder (https://www.tvcrewfinder.com) and it’s pretty much like all the other set ups out there that think it is somehow acceptable to charge freelancers for the right to apply for jobs.

We’ve asked the company how this fits in with the regulations that forbid any company from charging job seekers for work finding services but they didn’t have any answer to that question. Maybe the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate might like to take a look then.

Meanwhile however, freelancers beware! Paying money to these kinds of businesses is not recommended for three good reasons:

1) You should never have to pay to apply for a job.

2) Pretty much every job in the industry can be found on all the free-to-use sites anyway, including the numerous industry Facebook pages and all the sites here.

3) Paying money to these people keeps them in business and no-one (apart from the owners in question) wants that. Remember, when the sites disappear, the jobs still exist!

TVCrewFinder: AVOID! Do feel free to spread the word.
