How we use and disclose personal information


We and third parties may use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • providing your details to a client as part of an application by you for a job or temporary assignment. We will notify you before we do this, and will provide this information with your consent.
  • to consider you for potential vacancies where you have consented to this. We will not consider you for any potential vacancies where you have requested we do not do so – see below.
  • contract administration - where we engage you to fulfil a temporary engagement. We will process your information as required to administer the contract.
  • where you are engaged by a third party company as part of a temporary engagement or an assignment we may process information about you for that third party company. We process your information in this circumstance either because we need it for our agreement with the client (and we will process it due to our legitimate interest in doing so) or on behalf of the third party company (and they will confirm the lawful basis for processing it).
  • providing you with information about ourselves, the jobs market generally and as part of surveys we conduct from time to time – we will only do this if you have consented to receive such information – see below
  • sharing your data with third parties who provide services to us e.g. our IT services provider. We provide this information to these third parties as part of our services to you and our clients and they process data for us. All these providers have contracts with us.

Where we process your data, it is subject to our strict internal policy requirements and data protection regulations.


How long will we hold your personal information

We will hold the personal information we use to meet the requirements of our agreements with clients, or you for the period of those agreements and any further period afterwards that we need for regulatory or other legal reasons (such as to defend any claims). This will usually mean that we will hold information for seven years after an agreement ends. Where we process information for a third party we will hold the information for as long as we are required to do so. We will remove any personal information when we no longer need it.

Where we have personal information with your consent, we will hold it for the period the consent remains in force and any other period we need for regulatory or other legal reasons. You may remove your consent at any time.

We delete information about you we no longer need. Please see below in relation to your rights to have data erased, rectified or for you to access it and for you to object to any processing or to transfer it.
