We may also have found your data through CV search software. This method searches publically accessible and company approved job boards where you will have placed your CV.

What do we do once we have got your data?

Wherever your data originates from, we will contact you to request your consent every time we would like to submit your details to one of our clients. We may use your data to send you emails with new job alerts relevant to the industry and area you work within.

Yes we do – but only with your consent. For example if we believe you are suitable for a role with one of our clients, we will contact you to obtain your consent to send your details to them. If you are successful and operating as a contractor our internal payroll and finance departments will then hold and process relevant elements of your data for their purposes. In addition, appropriate data will be sent to our appointed pension provider on your behalf. You may also nominate an umbrella company to pay you. In such cases we will provide relevant data to them for payment purposes.

Do we transfer your data outside the EU and what are the safeguards?

We have clients based outside the EU therefore potentially yes if we consider you to be of interest to one of these clients. We will always seek your explicit consent to send your details outside of the EU.
