Make a job offer

Key points

  • When making a job offer, the employer should understand that once the candidate has accepted the offer, a binding contract of employment is formed and this can include terms that have been verbally agreed. Therefore, the employer should ensure that the terms and conditions are clear.
  • Job offers can be made conditional on receipt of satisfactory references.
  • Employers should ensure that they understand and comply with the relevant provisions of the Equality Act 2010 if making job offers conditional on medical checks.
