We collect:

  • your name;
  • your address;
  • the country you live in;
  • your email address;
  • your phone numbers;
  • details of your education and working career;
  • your personal interests; and
  • details of how you interact with the Jobs website and Jobs app, and vacancies you might be interested in.

How do you collect it?

You provide personal data to the Jobs website by:

  • registering as a user;
  • posting material to the Jobs website (for example, your CV); and
  • storing a copy of your CV and any other information you provide when you send it to a recruiter.

We will store a copy of:

  • your CV, and any other information you provide, for no longer than we need
  • an individual account to send job applications from;
  • the option to receive email alerts about relevant jobs

How do the different services available through the Jobs website use my data?

Email alerts

There are two email alerts that you can receive.

If you have signed up for email alerts through the Jobs website, you can receive general job alerts emails suggesting new vacancies, that may be based on previous Jobs website searches. To stop the emails, you can use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email.

When you have a Jobs website profile you can also choose to receive Job match emails that are tailored to your job preferences, for example, sector and location. You can stop these emails by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email.

One-off job applications

When you apply for a one-off application, we keep a copy of your CV and share it directly with the company who advertised the position.
