Your personal information may be stored online and therefore we take steps to ensure that our systems are well protected.
So, what personal information do we collect about you?
We process the following types of personal data about you:
Information about past and current employment
Education and qualifications
Information about your lifestyle
We collect the personal information requested on our application forms and contact forms together with any comments or remarks that you may provide in free text fields (such as personal statements) or CVs (where applicable). We may also keep a record of references received from third parties (including those you give us, credit reference and fraud prevention agencies) and of any other correspondence or communication between you and us, whether written, e-mailed, or as a result of visits, interviews or recorded telephone calls.
We also monitor site traffic, and like most websites, we use a Unique Visitor Cookie (which is supplied and managed by a carefully selected statistics provider) to identify your PC by a random number (e.g. #12489). More details about cookies and how you can disable them can be found below.
Making sure your personal data is secure
Whilst we take steps to protect user privacy, no data transmission over the internet can be entirely secure. We therefore do not guarantee the security of personal information that you send to us, or your use of the site. Any personal information you do send is at your own risk but once we receive it we use strict procedures to safeguard it.
How do we use your personal information?
In connection with a contract between you and us or an employer…
We may use and process your personal information where it is necessary for us to do so to in connection with or anticipation of a contract between you and us, or an employer to:
process your job application and otherwise manage the recruitment process;
help potential employers assess and process your job application;
help potential employers check and confirm the references that you provide as part of your job application;
check with any necessary regulatory, industry and/or security authorities relevant to the position that you have applied for.
So, what are cookies and why do we use them?
Cookies are files that are recorded in temporary Internet folders on your PC. They’re a useful tool as, by recording the way you use our site, they enable us to get to know you better. For example, we’re able to recognise you when you return to the site, identify your preferences so as to provide you with a more personalised service and speed up searches that you conduct when visiting.
