For over 20 years we have been building long-term, trusted partnerships and delivering successful outcomes for high-growth SME businesses and larger global organisations. We combine deep sector knowledge and networks with functional expertise across Sales, Marketing, Operations, Finance and Advisory.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of our candidates, clients and users of our website. We want to provide a safe and secure service where we deal with your personal information. This means information that identifies you personally such as your name, photo or contact details or data that can be linked with such information in order to identify you.
1. What personal information do we collect about you?
We collect the information necessary to be able to find available opportunities and further information needed to assess your eligibility through the different stages of recruitment. This information may include your name, contact details, family details, CV’s, identification documents, educational records, work history, employment status and references.
We might sometimes also collect sensitive personal information about you, such as details of criminal convictions and ethnic origin.

4. How long do we keep your personal information?
5. Who do we share your personal information with?
We share your personal information with a client who has a position to fill, in order to determine with the client whether you are a good fit for the available position. This client may be a recruitment firm working on behalf of an end client with a position to fill, or it may be a client who themselves has a position to fill. We may also share your personal information with a client who is interested in assessing potential candidates for future vacancies (ie during talent mapping and talent pipelining exercises).
We follow the same guidelines whether candidates are based within the EEA or outside. Where our client or a role is outside the EEA we might transfer personal information outside the EEA, but always using the same guidelines in obtaining Consent, as in 3 above.
We share your personal information with trusted third parties where we have retained them to provide services that you or our clients have requested, such as referencing, qualification and criminal reference checking services (as required), verification of the details you have provided from third party sources, psychometric evaluations or skills tests. These third parties comply with similar and equally stringent undertakings of privacy and confidentiality.
We share your personal information with our other Group companies for internal reasons, primarily for business and operational purposes. As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or merges with us your personal information will be disclosed to such entity. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information will be considered an asset of ours and as such it is possible they will be sold or transferred to third parties.
6. What happens if you do not provide us with the information we request or ask that we stop processing your information?
If you do not provide the personal information necessary or withdraw your consent for the processing of your personal information, where this information is necessary for us to provide recruitment services to you, we may not be able to match you with available job opportunities.
7. Do we make automated decisions concerning you?
No, we do not carry out automated decision making.
8. Do we transfer your personal information outside the EEA?
For specific clients outside the EEA and relating to specific roles we might transfer personal information outside the EEA but it will only be on the basis outlined in the preceding sections and with your prior consent.
