Privacy policy

The legal basis for processing and storing your personal information under GDPR

Next Recruitment Group will utilize your personal information solely in accordance with the law. Typically, we employ your personal data for the following purposes, which are commonly referred to as the legal grounds for processing within UK GDPR Article 6(1)

  • in order to meet the requirements of a contractual agreement (UK GDPR Article 6(1)(b))
  • when it is essential for the pursuit of our legitimate interests (UK GDPR Article 6(1)(f))
  • when it is necessary to comply with legal or regulatory obligations (UK GDPR Article 6(1)(c))
  • when you give your explicit consent (UK GDPR Article 6(1)(a)) and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018.

A legitimate interest arises when we possess a business or commercial rationale to utilise your information in the operation and administration of our business.

We refrain from using your personal data for activities that supersede our interests.

How is your personal data shared?

Prior to conducting any form of interview, Next Recruitment Group will always seek your consent before forwarding your CV to potential employers.

In the event that it is required by law, we may disclose your information to regulatory or law enforcement authorities.

If the company undergoes a sale or merger with another business, your information may be shared with our advisors, prospective purchasers, and their advisors, and will be transferred to the new owners of the business.

We will never sell your information under any circumstances.

How is your personal data secured?

We have implemented suitable technical and organizational safeguards to prevent the accidental loss, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, or disclosure of personal data.

We restrict access to personal data to only those employees, contractors, and third parties who require it for legitimate business purposes. We operate a policy of "least privilege" where a user is given the minimum levels of access or permissions to your personal data required to perform their job.

We have established protocols to address any personal data breaches and will inform you and the relevant supervisory authority in accordance with legal obligations.

How long do we keep your personal data for?

We will store your personal data for the duration required to fulfill the intended purposes for which it was collected. This includes recruitment services, managing job applications, maintaining communication with clients and hiring organisations.

Considering the potential interest of employers in recruiting you in the future, we will hold onto your CV for a maximum of 3 years, unless you choose to delete it, which you are free to do at any time.

Your right to be forgotten.

You have the right at any time to request us to delete your personal data from our databases.

In certain situations, we have the ability to anonymise your personal data, rendering it unidentifiable and dissociated from you. This process is carried out for the purpose of research or statistical analysis, and once anonymised, the data may be utilised indefinitely without any notification to you.

Your other rights

Make a data access request to access personal data we hold about you. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Request rectification to update and correct any information we hold about you.
