Do we obtain consent before processing: All Data must be processed legally. If we look for consent, we will always ensure that you know what you are consenting to. We may also process Data without consent but only if that is compliant with the GDPR and/or is in line with your reasonable expectations.


The GDPR states we must have a lawful basis for processing all Data. The GDPR sets out the grounds where processing of Data can be undertaken legally. Our lawful basis for processing will be as follows:


  • Legitimate business interest: For prospective candidates, contractors, referees and clients, our processing is necessary for our legitimate interests – we need this information in order to be able to assess suitability for potential roles, to find potential candidates and to contact clients, referees, and suppliers.
  • Before we go ahead with any processing, we will carry out a ‘balancing test’ to ensure that our processing is necessary and that your fundamental privacy rights are not outweighed by our legitimate business interests.
  • If you are interviewed and submitted as a Candidate, then this may involve the processing of more detailed 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 of any sensitive Data.
  • Where we need consent for some activities such as contacting candidates about other recruitment-related services we will ask for it. We rely on soft opt-in consent for these activities where you have previously engaged with us by submitting a CV, applying for a job, or registering on our Site. This means we take your consent as given unless or until you opt-out. For other types of e-marketing we require your explicit consent.




With the Client who has a role to fill, in order to assess suitability and the eventually placing the suitable Candidate into the vacant role.

We may also conduct background checks to verify the information you have provided which means we may need to share your information with a company appointed by us to run background checks.


With Candidates during the course of providing services to you and with third parties as part of our contractual relationship.


As part of our contractual relationship.


We require all third parties to respect the security of your Data and to treat it in accordance with the GDPR and other laws. As part of the recruitment process we will have to share your Data with a third party, but we only permit them to process your Data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
