Data protection statement:

[Agency Name] provides work-finding services to its clients and candidates. We must process personal data (including sensitive personal data) so that we are able to provide these services – in doing so, we act as a data-controller. This why we have asked for your personal data on this form. When we process your personal data we must do so in accordance with data-protection laws. Those laws require us to give you a Privacy Statement to explain how we manage your personal data. Please see our relevant Privacy Statement attached.

Current regulations stipulate that an applicants’ permission must be sought prior to their details being submitted for a vacancy. As a professional Agency, we always endeavour to do this in order that you have full details regarding any opportunity for which we are considering you. There may, however, be rare occasions when a client will introduce a deadline for receipt of application and we are unable to establish contact with you during this time period. In such an instance, would you like us to submit your details for vacancies we feel are appropriate without your prior consent? Please select your preferences from the tick boxes below. This does not commit you to progressing applications you later feel unsuitable once a full verbal brief is provided.

In exceptional circumstances, I give permission for my CV/details to be submitted to client(s) without my prior consent for vacancies that meet my requirements as outlined during my initial contact with [Agency Name]. I understand that, should this occur, [Agency Name] will brief me at their earliest opportunity.
