As you may be aware, the EU is implementing a new data protection regulation (GDPR) with the aim of unifying and strengthening data protection.

From the 25th of May we will be unable to send our candidates direct marketing materials and automated job alerts unless they have opted in to receive these communications.
So what does this mean for you?

Whilst we will still hold your details(unless you ask us not to), we may be unable to send you automated job alerts,so you may not hear about all the roles which are suitable for you.

We don’t want you to miss out on a great role, so please consent to receiving our automated job alerts by updating your preferences in the links below.

The law changes on 25th May 2018, so we need you to take action today!
If you want to know more about GDPR, then please see our Privacy Policy.
