GDPR stands for The General Data Protection Regulation. This is a new law designed to give you more control over how companies collect and use your personal data.

  • Do I need to do anything? 

Our new policies will take effect on the 25th May 2018. The first time you log into your account you will be asked to agree with the new terms and conditions. You will not need to do anything after this, all policy documents will be available in your account dashboard.

  • What data do you hold?

We will generally hold your name, CV, address and email. However, this may differ depending on what process you are involved with i.e. temporary work.

Depending on what capacity you are engaged with us, i.e. temporary work, we may pass your details to third parties including HMRC.
