In line with our business values of integrity and professionalism we’re committed to managing personal data securely and compliantly.
Because we work with a number of recruitment agencies, we hold a large amount of personal data on our clients’ candidates, so we have adopted guiding principles to ensure everyone across our business understands how sensitive this data is.
GDPR guidance for our clients
Launched in May 2018, GDPR provides us with a great platform to benchmark our data protection policies and processes – and ensure we’re using personal data with the utmost integrity.
You can read all about how we’re managing GDPR within our business in our client briefing update:
GDPR guidance for candidates
As an individual, you’ll be keen to know that when you give us your personal data we’re managing it in a professional way.
What is the General Data Protection Regulation?
GDPR is all about giving you as an individual more control over how companies store and use your data. The new GDPR legislation means we must adhere to strict guidelines on how we manage data, including only storing the minimum information we need to help you secure a role, and not holding your personal data for any longer than needed.
Where is my personal data stored?
When an agency submits information to us on your behalf, we extract the personal details needed to progress your application – such as your name, email address and phone number – and safely store them in our encrypted database.
How can I see what personal data you hold on me?
You can see what information we hold on you at any time by submitting a subject access request, which we’ll reply to within 1 month of your request. If you’d like to do so, please complete the form on our website.
