We collect and process information made available to us from you directly through CV’s, telephone conversations, meetings, emails, or from publicly available information or through recommendation. The information we may collect and process includes your name, contact details and other relevant information. We also collate information from prospective and existing clients and candidates which is relevant to our recruitment services.
We use this information to provide our recruitment services to both clients and candidates and other agreed services to clients such as business development and consultancy. For example candidate information may be shared with potential employer clients after prior written or verbal consent has been obtained by the candidate. We may also share your information with third parties for reference and/or qualification checking and other checking as required by law. We may also share your information where we merge or transfer all or part of the business to a new owner. With your consent we may transfer your personal information to other countries that may be outside your country of residence for storage and processing in order to provide recruitment services. Information provided by you is securely stored by us. We ask clients, candidates and other third party users to ensure that candidate and client details are treated respectfully in line with data protection laws. However we are not responsible for the privacy of information practices of third parties.
The length of time we store your details for will depend on the services we provide to you. For example we often support candidates in current and future job searches and the same for clients with their ongoing hiring plans. We do however carry out regular data updates to ensure we are not retaining your information for longer than is necessary.
