Your personal information

Information We collect from you

We collect and process information that you provide when you apply for a role such as name, email address, address, information relating to your employment history, skills and experience, correspondence records, website visits, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data or the site that referred you to our jobs’ website.

This information is provided through an online job site, via email, in person at interviews and/or by any other method.

Using Workable technology, the data that you provide to Us may be linked with other publicly available information that you have published on the Internet - this may include sources such as LinkedIn and other social media profiles.

Lawful basis for processing

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.

Purposes of processing

We use information held about you in the following ways:

Storing your personal data

How we secure 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 know 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 so.

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.


Where We store your personal data

By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.

You data may be stored by Workable’s hosting service provider on servers in the USA as well as in the EU. The USA does not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. A Data Processor Agreement has been signed between Workable Software Limited and its overseas group companies, and between Workable Software Limited and each of its data processors. These data processor agreements are designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal data.
