Personal data you give to us

We collect Client data in three ways:

We are committed to taking all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that we hold from misuse, loss, or unauthorised access.

We think it’s reasonable to expect that if you are looking for employment or have posted your professional CV information on a job board or professional networking site, you are happy for us to collect and otherwise use your personal data to offer or provide our recruitment services to you, share that information with prospective employers and assess your skills against our list of vacancies.
Once it’s looking like you may get the job, your prospective employer may also want to double check any information you’ve given us or to confirm your references, qualifications and criminal record. We need to do these things so that we can function as a profit-making business, and to help you and other candidates get the jobs you deserve.
We want to provide you with the best possible job recommendations and relevant articles to read to help you on your job hunt. We therefore think it’s reasonable for us to process your data to make sure that we send you the most appropriate content.
We have to make sure our business runs smoothly, so that we can carry on providing services to candidates like you. We therefore also need to use your data for our internal administrative activities, like payroll and invoicing where relevant.
Article 4(11) of the GDPR states that (opt-in) consent is “any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.” This means that:
This includes all applicants for any role which is advertised or promoted by YSS, and anyone who may have sent a CV to us in a speculative manner not in relation to any specific role.
This includes any customer to whom Yorkshire Staffing Services provides services for throughout the course of its business.
