ASA says Noir Consulting job adverts were genuine

Complaints against three job ads from recruiter Noir Consulting for .NET developers have not been upheld by the Advertising Standards Association (ASA).

The ads for developers at computer gaming companies in Swansea, London and Newcastle were seen in October 2020 and posted on CW Jobs and Telegraph Jobs, the ASA said.

The complainant, who believed the ads did not relate to genuine vacancies, challenged whether the ads were misleading, the ASA said.

Noir Consulting provided evidence via screenshots of their recruitment management system. Screengrabs showed the date the jobs were logged on the system, details of the jobs advertised and details of an applicant who had been successfully placed, the ASA said. The company also provided a copy of the job description and correspondence with the client, in which the client confirmed they had offices in the locations listed in the ads.

The ASA said: “We considered the evidence was adequate to substantiate that the job ads were genuine and concluded that the ads were not misleading.”
