We use Workable, an online application provided by Workable Software Limited, to assist with our

behalf. Workable is only entitled to process your personal data in accordance with our instructions.

Where you apply for a job opening posted by us, these Privacy Notice provisions will apply to our processing of your personal information.

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Notice from time to time without notice. Please check this page regularly to keep up to date.


We collect and process some or all of the following types of information from you:

  • Information that you provide when you apply for a role. This includes information provided
    through an online job site, via email, in person at interviews and/or by any other method.
  • In particular, we process personal details such as name, email address, address, date of birth, qualifications, experience, information relating to your employment history, skills and experience that you provide to us.

Workable provides us with the facility to link the data you provide to us, with other publicly available information about you that you have published on the Internet – this may include sources such as LinkedIn and other social media profiles.

Workable’s technology enables us to search various databases, which may include your personal data, to find possible candidates to fill our job openings. Where we find you in this way we will obtain your personal data from these sources.


Uses Made Of Your Information


We rely on legitimate interest as the lawful basis on which we collect and use your personal data. Our legitimate interests are the recruitment of staff for our business.


We use information held about you in the following ways:

  • To consider your application in respect of a role for which you have applied.

  • To communicate with you in respect of the recruitment process.
  • To enhance any information that we receive from you with information obtained from third
    party data providers.

We may use Workable’s technology to select appropriate candidates for us to consider based on criteria we have identified. The process of finding suitable candidates is automatic, however, any decision as to who we will engage to fill the job opening will be made by our staff.


How we Store Your Personal Data


We take appropriate measures to ensure that all personal data is kept secure including security
measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an
unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal data to those who have a genuine business need
to view it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject
to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you
and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted through any online means, therefore any transmission remains at your own risk.
