The information we collect

The personal information that we collect via this website consists essentially of your last name, first name, nationality, date of birth, home address, phone number (land line or mobile) and email address, plus your training, qualifications and professional experience. This information is gathered from the CVs that you send us by email or through forms on the website.

Our purposes in using your personal data

Communicating your personal data

In order to guarantee an effective, targeted service, we may also forward your personal data to other offices in the Robert Walters group, unless you do not wish us to do so.

As part of the recruitment process, we may also need to communicate your personal data to third parties and we must point out that in these instances we take all the necessary steps to ensure that your personal data is treated confidentially and is only used for the purposes of recruitment management on your behalf. We may also send these third party companies and/or bodies data about you in an aggregate, i.e. anonymous format, for the purposes of compiling statistics on information such as number of users, their age groups, geographical location, etc. We use this information to improve the services we offer our candidates.
