By registering as a job seeker, you are agreeing to receive our online recruitment services, which will include tailored updates on relevant job vacancies and courses that may interest you. These updates will be sent to you via job alerts, which we will email to you. Please note that job alerts may contain information about vacancies offered by third-party providers. If you express interest in any of these third-party opportunities, you may be directed to their website without needing to log in to your account first.

You have the option to opt out of receiving information from us, which can be done during the registration process or by updating your contact preferences in your account. You can also click on the “unsubscribe” link provided in those emails to opt out at any time.

What do we do with your personal data?

When job seekers register with the Website, they are considered to be actively seeking contact from recruiters and prospective employers regarding opportunities that match their interests, as well as relevant information that can improve their career prospects. As a job seeker, your personal information will be made available to recruiters and employers who use the Website to find suitable candidates for specific roles, and you will receive job alerts (if you signed up to one). However, job seekers have the ability to control the extent to which their personal information is shared with recruiters and prospective employers through the contact preferences section of the “your account” page on the Website. We use your personal data to provide you with recruitment services, including job alerts, manage your account, and provide information about our recruitment services and other services available on the Website.


We may periodically inform you about other products and services offered through the Website. If you choose to receive such information, we will send you promotional emails. You can sign up for this service by ticking the relevant box when you subscribe to our newsletter, but you can opt out at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link included in each subsequent email.

Additionally, you have the option to modify your contact preferences in your account to prevent us from contacting you regarding recruitment services or courses, including job and course alerts, that you signed up for when you created your account.

We use tracking pixels in our marketing emails to gather information about how you interact with them, such as whether you opened the email. This data helps us to analyze the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns and to better understand how our customers engage with our content. If you prefer not to be tracked, you can adjust your email settings to block the loading or display of external images.

Data Sharing and Transfers - Job Seekers

In order to assist you in finding a suitable job, we provide recruitment services that may involve sharing your personal data with third parties such as recruiters, direct employers, their agents or other business partners. While we take steps to verify the identity of these third parties upon registration, we do not guarantee their authenticity. This sharing of personal data typically occurs when you apply for a job through the Website or when a recruiter purchases our services and downloads your CV. These parties will also be considered data controllers of your personal data. The extent to which we share your personal data with these parties depends on the preferences you select when creating or updating your account.

Data Sharing and Transfers - Job Seekers​

We may engage third party service providers to assist us in carrying out our business activities, and we may share your personal data with them.

These third parties are considered data processors and are contractually obligated to process your personal data only in accordance with our instructions and for the limited purposes we authorize. Examples of such third parties include our accountants, auditors, legal advisors, IT providers, support and hosting service providers, advertising and marketing service providers, and data storage and cloud providers, among others.

We may also share your personal data with courts, tribunals, regulators, and other governmental and public authorities, such as the police or tax authorities, in order to pursue legal remedies, enforce our terms and conditions, comply with legal processes, applicable law, and respond to requests from public and governmental bodies.

If you apply for a job advertised by a recruiter outside the EEA, where such recruiter downloads your CV,  your personal data may be processed outside the EEA. In such situations, we enter into legally binding contracts with such recruiters to ensure the protection of your personal data.
