Core Executive Consultants is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal data. This statement summarizes our policy regarding the collection, use and transfer of your personal data, the security measures Core Executive Consultants employs to protect such data and your rights in relation to it.
How we use your personal data
We use the personal data we collect from you for a number of purposes:
- Processing job applications, in partnership with our clients, on whose behalf we are instructed to help fill a job vacancy. This means that if you apply for a specific job, we may pass your details to the relevant client to proceed with the application. As a result, you may receive further direct correspondence from them.
- Searching for relevant candidates for confidential recruitment assignments where our client is not initially named. This means that if we believe you are suitable for a specific role, we may pass your basic details on to the relevant client. If that client agrees that you might be suitable, we will then discuss this with you in more detail. You might be interviewed for the role by one of our consultants. If successful, you might be shortlisted for interview by our client. At this point, we will pass further details to the client and you may receive further direct correspondence from them.
- From time to time, we conduct mapping or research exercises on behalf of our clients. This is to enable them to understand a particular market. Here, we may include certain aspects of your personal data. You will not be contacted by any third party about this unless we first obtain your consent.
- For the performance of a contract, we have concluded with you as an individual, most likely an assessment or coaching programme.
- Improving the service we offer. For example, you may be asked to complete one of our online satisfaction surveys.
- For marketing purposes to send you information on our services, white papers, newsletters, events and so forth. Please note you may opt out from receipt of marketing materials at any time by writing to us.
