Our reasons for processing your data

We ask you for your consent to process your data, to be transparent; however, we may also have a legitimate interest, a contractual obligation, or be legally bound to process it. We only use your data in connection with work finding services, and won't share it with a third party for any other purpose.

Your consent

If you approach us or we find your CV on a "Jobs Board", we assume you're looking for work finding services. We'll ask you for your consent to process your data, but if you don't give it to us within 30 days, we'll dispose of your data securely. We ask for your consent via email, or in writing. We can't provide work finding services to you without your consent to handle your data, and you have the right to withdraw your consent any time.

We work with selected service providers such as pre-employment vetting services (e.g. occupational health professionals, or bodies providing criminal record and barring checks, etc.), payroll software service providers, hardware and IT infrastructure specialists, HMRC and other Governmental Departments so we can deliver work finding services to you. We always work to ensure your data is secure, and our service providers have appropriate data privacy and security standards.

If you find work through us, we'll retain your data for a maximum of 36 months from our last material dealings with you.
