The current recruitment sector legislation under the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 does not regulate where job vacancies are advertised, which the government claims allows some recruiters to advertise vacancies outside of the UK without giving workers in Britain the opportunity to apply.

However, under the new, revised rules, all employment agencies and businesses will be required by law to advertise vacancies within the EEA, only if they have also been advertised in English and in Great Britain beforehand.

Recruitment experts have questioned whether the regulation, which will only apply to employment agencies, should be extended to ordinary employers or hirers.
