Privacy Statement


It is important to understand that we may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Please just visit this page if you want to stay up to date, as we will post any changes here.

This Privacy Policy explains what we do with your personal data, whether we are in the process of helping you find a job, continuing our relationship with you once we have found you a role, providing you with a service, receiving a service from you, using your data to ask for your assistance in relation to one of our Candidates, or you are visiting our website.

It describes how we collect, use and process your personal data, and how, in doing so, we comply with our legal obligations to you. Your privacy is important to us, and we are committed to protecting and safeguarding your data privacy rights.

This Privacy Policy applies to the personal data of our Website Users, Candidates, Clients, Suppliers, and other people whom we may contact to find out more about our Candidates

For the purpose of applicable data protection legislation (including but not limited to the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (the "GDPR"), the company responsible for your personal data ("Anglo Technical Recruitment Ltd " or "us") can be found in the 'How to get in touch with us page'

If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of our Privacy Policy, you may have legal rights and, where relevant, we have described these as well.

The legal bases for processing your data

Legitimate interests

Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR is the one that is relevant here - it says that we can process your data where it "is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by [us] or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights or freedoms of [you] which require protection of personal data."

We do not think that any of the following activities prejudice individuals in any way - in fact, they help us to offer you a bespoke, efficient service that will be to everyone’s benefit.

However, you do have the right to challenge us processing your personal data on this basis. If you would like to know more about how to do so, please see the section 'How can you access, amend or take back the personal data that you have given to us?'

Legitimate interests for candidate data:

We believe it's reasonable that if you have previously registered with us, been telephone interviewed by us, attended a client interview(s) through us, been placed by us into a new job, or, agreed with us that we can keep your details on file that you are happy for us to use your personal data to provide our recruitment services to you.

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 bank of vacancies.

The moment it looks like you may get the job, your prospective employer may also want to double check any information you've given us (such as the results from psychometric evaluations or skills tests, or referees) or to confirm your references, qualifications and criminal record, to the extent that this is appropriate and in accordance with local laws.

We want to provide you with tailored 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 through a variety of methods and platforms (which include but are not limited to email marketing, LinkedIn, Social Media, Twitter etc).

We must make sure our business runs smoothly we therefore also need to use your data for our internal administrative activities, like payroll and invoicing where relevant.

We have our own obligations under the law, which it is a legitimate interest of ours to insist on meeting! If we believe in good faith that it is necessary, we may therefore share your data in connection with crime detection, tax collection or actual or anticipated litigation.

Legitimate interests for client data:

To ensure that we provide you with the best service possible, we store your personal data and/or the personal data of individual contacts at your organisation as well as keeping records of our conversations, meetings, registered jobs and placements. From time to time, we may also ask you to undertake a customer satisfaction survey. We think this is reasonable - we deem these uses of your data to be necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation providing various recruitment services to you.

Legitimate interests for supplier data:

We use and store the personal data of individuals within your organisation to facilitate the receipt of services from you as one of our suppliers. We also hold your financial details, so that we can pay you for your services. We deem all such activities to be necessary within the range of our legitimate interests as a recipient of your services.

Legitimate interests for people whose data we receive from candidates:

If you have been put down by a candidate as one of their referees, we use your personal data in order to contact you for a reference. This is a part of our quality assurance procedure and so we deem this to be necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation offering recruitment services and employing people ourselves.


In certain circumstances, we are required to obtain your consent to the processing of your personal data in relation to certain activities. Depending on exactly what we are doing with your information, this consent will be opt-in consent or soft opt-in consent.

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."

In plain language, this means that:

  • you have to give us your consent freely, without us putting you under any type of pressure;
  • you have to know what you are consenting to - so we'll make sure we give you enough information;
  • you should have control over which processing activities you consent to and which you don't.

You need to take positive and affirmative action in giving us your consent which will be in the form of a link that will allow you to email us stating that you DO WISH or DO NOT WISH us to process your data in the way we have already explained in this Privacy statement. Please email us your preference on

If you choose “DO NOT WISH” then we will, of course abide by that decision and update your records accordingly BUT it will mean that you will miss out on relevant job alerts, emails etc although you can keep in touch with us by phone or social media.

We have already mentioned that, in some cases, we will be able to rely on soft opt-in consent. We are allowed to market products or services to you which are related to the recruitment services we provide as long as you do not actively opt-out from these communications.

PLEASE NOTE that asking to unsubscribe/opt out DOES NOT delete your data from our systems. To request that you data be deleted, you will have to send us an email specifically asking for that action to be, taken.
