Brand Recruitment Site Terms of Use


1.1 Your use of this service is conditional on you accepting in full these terms of use, and abiding by them. In these terms, where we talk about the “service” that means your access to our Brand Recruitment Site (“Site”) and the functionality (including unplanned functionality, if there are any bugs) it provides.

1.2 The Site is provided to allow candidates to search for and apply for employment with brands occupying retail premises at any Village owned or operated by The Bicester Collection (“Brands”). This can be done by signing up for notifications of available positions in which you might be interested (the “Talent Network”), with or without the creation of a candidate profile, and also by searching for and/or applying for specific positions.

1.3 The Site also allows candidates to apply for membership of the Store Manager Talent Pool. The application process for the Store Manager TalentPool has been developed by the leading hospitality school, École hôtelière de Lausanne. If you express interest in the Store Manager Talent Pool, you will be invited to complete a questionnaire, submit your CV if you have not already done so, and attend a meeting with us.

1.4 The Site is operated on our behalf by iCIMS, inc (“iCIMS”).


2.1 We are Value Retail Management Limited and its associated companies (“we”, “us”, “our”). Reference to “you”, “your” are to the user of this service.

2.2 You must not allow, permit or encourage anyone else to do something which you are not allowed to do under these terms. You must not let anyone else use this service with your login details.

5.1 We will be entitled to assume that any action requested using your identification code and password has been submitted by you or by someone authorised by you.

5.2 You must keep any user identification code, password or other piece of information used as part of our security procedures confidential. We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, at any time, if in our opinion our security procedures have been compromised.

5.3 If you lose your identification code or password, you must reset it as soon as possible and tell us as soon as possible. If you do not do this, it may make the service unsafe for everyone using it.

5.4 You are not allowed to use anyone else’s identification code or password to access the system, even if they give you permission. 5.5 We cannot guarantee that the service is free of viruses of malicious code, but we will use reasonable efforts to protect the service from this.


6.1 We either own, or are allowed to use, the material provided in the service. Unless the service specifically says that you are allowed to make copies or keep documents (for example, if you are told to download and print training material) you are not allowed to copy, keep or modify anything in the service. The exception is these terms and conditions, which you are welcome to keep a copy of either on your phone or computer, or print out.

6.2 We may ask that you keep confidential information that is provided to you through your use of the service, in particular in relation to the Store Manager Talent Pool.

6.3 Where the contents of this service are provided by third parties (for example, Brands) we are not responsible for the content provided to us, but the same restrictions on use apply.

6.4 You shall not copy or reuse any part of this service.

6.5 If you upload, store or provide any content or material to the site then:

6.5.1 you promise us that the content or material does not break the rules in clause 4 (Acceptable Use);

6.5.2 you allow us (and any company involved with owning or running The Bicester Collection, and the providers of our computer systems) to use, store, transmit, display, and delete the content or material as needed for the service (including backups and archives) and related retail leadership programme anywhere in the world; and

6.5.3 you promise us that you are able to give these promises to us.

6.6 Subject to your data protection rights, we do not promise that we will keep your content or material or that you will be able to get it back, particularly if a third party claims that it belongs to them or violates their privacy. You should keep your own copies of anything important.


7.1 We are not charging you any money for theis service.

7.2 We can change the service, or withdraw it at any time. We make no promises that the services will work all the time or in the planned way at any particular time, or at all.

7.3 If you have not complied with these terms, we can block, suspend or end your use of the services. This includes when we reasonably consider that you have not complied with any request to keep information confidential.

7.4 We may also suspend all or part of the service at any time for security reasons or because we are no longer being asked to provide it by Brands.


8.1 This service is only available to individuals who use it for personal career advancement and education. You must not use it or allow anyone else to use for any other reason, and we will not be liable for any use for another reason.

8.2 You accept that your use of the Site is not intended to, nor does it, create any employer/employee relationship between you and us. Any position that you apply for is not for employment with us, but with a Brand, and any decision made on Brand recruitment is made solely by the Brand and not by us.

8.3 Any application for membership of the Store Manager Talent Pool does not mean that you are applying for a specific job. All assessments are carried out by us only in relation to the Competency Framework of École hôtelière de Lausanne, which is in addition to (and is not intended to replace or negate) any assessment that you may be asked to attend by Brands as part of their job application process. Admission to the Store Manager Talent Pool does not guarantee that you will be considered by any brand and/or that you will be interviewed for any role. Similarly, an unsuccessful application for the Store Manager Talent Pool does not preclude you from applying for further roles independently and directly with the Brands.

8.4 As far as the law allows, and considering that this service is provided without charge to you: (a) we are not liable to you for any problem with the service or its contents, including for example the contents being inaccurate even if this was due to us being negligent and (b) we are not responsible for any loss or damage caused by or related to you failing to be recruited for any position to which you are introduced by your use of the Site.

8.5 These terms, the services and any matter related to either of them shall only be dealt with under English law and in the English courts, unless you are an individual living somewhere else in the United Kingdom in which case you can bring any disputes in your local court and under your local law.
