We will collect information from you if you register as an Employer on this Website.

What we use your information for

Your information will be used to provide you with access to our Website, to administer your account (if you are a registered user) and to supply you with any information, products or services you request. In particular (but without limitation) we will use your information in the following ways:

  • We will permit users of this website to search profiles and job vacancies of registered employers. Registered Jobseekers may apply for jobs online. If you apply for a job through this website the information you submit will be forwarded directly to the employer concerned.
  • Where jobseekers have requested us to do so, we will send them email alerts of jobs matching their profile or stated search criteria.
  • We will permit registered Employers to search registered jobseeker profiles to find suitable applicants for jobs and to invite them to apply by email. Employers will only have access to the “my account” section of the jobseeker's profile, so Jobseekers who wish to remain anonymous should not include any personally identifiable information in this section. Jobseekers who do not wish to be emailed in this way should “opt out” by ticking the appropriate box in their profile.
  • We may use your information to contact you by email about special offers and new features on the Website. Registered users who do not wish to be contacted in this way can “opt out” by ticking the appropriate box in their profile.
  • We may use your information to contact you for feedback on your use or our products, services or website.
  • We may also use and analyse the information we collect so that we can administer, support, improve and develop our Website and the products and services we offer.

With whom we may share your information

If you are a registered Jobseeker your information will be shared with registered Employers in the ways outlined above. In particular, if you apply for a job online the information you submit will be forwarded directly to the employer concerned for consideration.

Similarly, if you are a registered employer then you acknowledge that any information you submit for inclusion on the Website will be accessible to site users.

We may allow third party providers and contractors who supply services to us or which process information on our behalf (for example our payment provider and website hosts) incidental access to your information. We will ensure that they keep your information secure and do not use it for their own purposes.

We may share your information with another organisation which buys our company or our assets or to whom we transfer our agreement with you and in the course of any negotiations which may or may not lead to such a transfer or sale.

We will disclose your information if we are required to by law. We may disclose your information to enforcement authorities if they ask us to, or to a third party in the context of actual or threatened legal proceedings, provided we can do so without breaching data protection laws.

Unless permitted or required to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent.

Your Rights

You have the right to see any information we hold about you on payment of a statutory fee, which is currently £10.

You have the right to correct any errors in information we hold about you. Please inform us about changes to your details so that we can keep our records accurate and up to date.

You have the right to opt out of receiving any marketing material from us or any third party at any time.

Security and retention of information

Transfers outside the EEA

The European Economic Area ('EEA') comprises the EU member states, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Countries outside the EEA do not normally have similar data protection laws to the UK.

If you are located outside the EEA, we may need to transfer your personal information to where you are located in order to provide you with any information, products or services you have requested. If you apply for a job with any employer based outside the EEA then you consent to us transferring your information to where they are located in order to allow them to consider your application.

Except as provided above, we will not transfer your information outside the EEA without first obtaining your consent or taking steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998.

We will from time to time update and make changes to this policy. We recommend that you revisit this privacy policy frequently, and ideally each time you visit our website.


If you follow a link from any of our website to another site, this policy will no longer apply. We are not responsible for the information handling practices of third party sites and we encourage you to read the privacy policies appearing on those sites.
