We collect information that is only relevant to our ability to find you employment on a permanent or contract employment or via our payroll solutions services through our clients. We do not collect any financial information via our website. If we require additional information (for example bank details to make payments to you if you are working as a contractor) we will contact you separately about this via SEC’s finance department.
Information we might collect includes your full name, address, telephone number, email address, current employment status, future employment desires, personal preferences (e.g. how far you are willing to travel, whether you would like to relocate, etc). Much of this is also to remember your contact details on the SEC website for ease of future use and the job application process.
In some instances and for some projects we also collect video content for interview purposes. You may request a copy of this content at any time by simply contacting SEC on +44 20 7255 6600 or emailing email@example.com. For any subject access requests we will also provide you with an Excel spreadsheet of all information relating to data that we have on you as an individual and you can request that in writing using the above email address. You will be notified if there are requirements for video interviewing in any process and for any project we are working on.
Where do you store my information?
We will also store your information gathered from the website on our company internal database which we will use to contact you with relevant jobs, or information that you might find of interest, which you can specify when you complete any online registration process on this website.
How will you use my information?
We share your information with any relevant employers we are working with as part of the registration process on this website. We will use your information to:
Brief your details to potential employers
Contact you about relevant opportunities that we think are appropriate to you – via email, SMS, telephone call, postal service
Contact you for feedback on the application process
Contact you for general feedback about the quality of service you receive from SEC
Send you information about any content we have produced that you may find of interest
When completing your details on our website you will be given the opportunity to decide which of the above services you wish to ‘opt in’ to.
You have the right to have your information removed from SEC website and databases at any time. If you wish to have your details removed then we would ask you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then process your request.
