We use your personal data to match your skills, experience and education with a potential employer. We will initially collect basic information on you such as contact details, job role and experience as part of our search activities for a particular recruitment project. If you are chosen by us to be assessed more deeply,you will go through to the next (interview) stage and onwards in that manner. At some point,we will share information about you with our client. If we undertake a reference/due diligence exercise the data supplied will be passed to our client. Sources may at times be anonymized.

We only retain your information for as long as is necessary for us to use your information as described above or to comply with our legal obligations. However, please be advised that we may retain some of your information after you cease to use our services, for instance if this is necessary to meet our legal obligations, such as retaining the information for tax and accounting purposes.

When determining the relevant retention periods, we will considerfactors including:

  1. our contractual obligations and rights in relation to the information involved;
  2. legal obligation(s) under applicable law to retain data for a certain period of time;
  3. statute of limitations under applicable law(s);
  4. (potential) disputes;
  5. if you have made a request to have your information deleted; and

The extent of data sharing and the involvedprofessionals

We share your personal data with the client we are working with and on whose behalfwe will have approached you or the client who has a position to fill, in order to determine with the client whether you are a good fit for the available position. With your prior permission, we may share your personal datawith selected external contacts where we think there may be interesting career development opportunities available to you. We may also conduct checks on you to verify the information you have provided and where we do this we may share this information with our clients and staff.

Legalities for sharing of personal data

For prospective candidates, interim managers, referees and clients, our processing is necessary for our legitimate interests in that we need the information in order to be able to assess suitability for potential roles, to find potential candidates and to contact clients and referees. If you are shortlisted as a candidate or we are working closely with you in an assessment of development process, then this may involve the processing of more detailed personal data including sensitive data such as health information that you or others provide about you. In that case, we always ask for your consent before undertaking such processing. For clients, we may also rely on our processing being necessary to perform a contract for you, for example in contacting you.

Consequences for inability to both share and use of personal data or if processing of information is requested to be halted

If you do not provide the personal data necessary, orwithdraw your consent for the processing of your personal data, we may not be able to work with you on potential assignments.

Information about automated decision regarding a person of concern

Automated decisions about you are not generally made but as part of our determination of suitability for a specific role, we at times and with a candidate ́s prior explicit permission, include assessment/psychometric profiling, which may be completed online. Results will always be assessed and analysed by trained and certified consultants. Feedback is always given to candidates before presenting the result of the assessment to our client and so no solely automated decisions will be made.
