This Policy explains what happens to any personal data that you provide, or that is collected from you as part of our usual business and/or accessing our Site.

Information we Collect

The Company may collect candidate personal information, including but not limited to your name and contact details, location, IP address and e-mail address, along with other relevant information submitted on our website and information from your curriculum vitae (CV).  We also receive your details from online job boards where candidates post their information and other social and professional networks such as LinkedIn where your profile is available in a public forum.  This information is held, used and disclosed by us:

  • To provide services to you.
  • To maintain a business relationship with you, where you are a user of our website, a client or a candidate.
  • To enable you to submit your CV for consideration for a specific or a range of positions, or to subscribe to our job alerts. See below for more information on how your CV is stored and how it is used.
  • To match your details with job vacancies, to assist us in finding a position that is most suitable for you and to send your personal information (including sensitive personal information) to clients in order to apply for jobs.
  • To answer your enquiries.
  • We shall not under any circumstances divulge your e-mail address to any person who is not an employee or contractor of ours and who does not need to know, either generally or specifically.
  • To fulfil contractual obligations with our clients.
  • To enable the development and marketing of other products and services and to improve our customer service and to make our services more valuable to you, this includes the tailoring of our website.
  • To third parties where we have retained them to provide services that you or our clients have requested, such as reference, qualification and criminal reference checking services (as required), verification of the details you have provided from third party sources, psychometric evaluations or skills tests.
  • To third parties who perform functions on our behalf and who also provide services to us, such as professional advisors, IT consultants carrying out support, testing and development work on our business technology systems, research and mailing companies and function co-ordinators. We expect our third parties to take all reasonable steps to comply with similar privacy requirements and confidentiality as the Company.

Job Alerts

To subscribe to job alerts emails, you will be required to provide your e-mail address, which will be used for the purpose of keeping you informed, by e-mail, of the latest jobs. Should you decide that you no longer wish to receive this information, unsubscribe links are provided in every job alert email that you receive. 

Curriculum vitae ("CV")

Your CV will be stored on our database and will be accessible by our recruitment consultants in the UK. It may also be stored by our website and web services provider Volcanic (https://www.volcanic.co.uk).

You can update your CV and personal details at any time simply by logging into the Users area of our website. Your old CV will automatically be archived providing the registration details remain the same i.e. you submit both CVs using the same email.  As a recruitment business we have a legitimate business interest to store limited personal details about you in our database as candidates often return to us on a number of occasions.  This assists our business and the level of service that we provide to you to be able to refer back to your details and job placements. 

If you do send us your CV or upload this on our website on your own accord, when one of our recruitment consultants have not been in contact with you, then this will be stored on our database as set out above.  Our consultants may not contact you directly if there is not a suitable vacancy although we may still hold your details. 

 

Information about our online visitors

We gather information and statistics collectively about all visitors to our website for example, which area users access most frequently and which services users access the most.

Transfers of Data in Europe
