Our approval scheme

The Career Break Site Approval logo

Any company with this logo has been approved by The Career Break Site.

We vet all our advertisers, partners and associates, and will not promote any company that we would not use ourselves.

We have the strictest vetting procedure in the gap year and career break industry.

An organisation does not have to pay us to be approved (although many do through our advertising packages) - the scheme is open to anyone. The vetting process is different for different organisations and we use a number of investigative techniques to assess organisations. Some of the things we look for include easily-accessible contact details (we don't approve anyone without a physical address) and financial solvency. We also make sure we talk to people in the organisation, people who have used them, and actively encourage reporting to us. If you would like to apply, please email info@thecareerbreaksite.com.

All approvals are given in good faith and made to the best of our knowledge. We can't be held liable if one of the organisations carrying this logo does something illegal or unethical, or if you suffer any loss or damage by using one of the organisations.

If you believe an organisation is using this logo without permission, or if you think a company should not be carrying this logo, please email info@thecareerbreaksite.com and let us know. We investigate all reports thoroughly and we never reveal your details or any information that could identify you.
