Privacy Policy

Effective from 24th May 2018 is part of Clearly Jobs Ltd which is an online job board business that operates online job portals to accurately match candidates with companies and recruitment agencies who are seeking to fulfil job vacancies.

We take data protection very seriously and understand the importance of protecting your privacy and Personal Information. "Personal Information" is information that identifies you as an individual such as your name, email address and CV.

How do we collect information from you?

We collect and use your Personal Information in accordance with this our Privacy Policy. The majority of the Personal Information you provide to us freely when you create an account and upload your CV in order to make a job application.

Please do not submit such Personal Information to us if you do not wish us to collect it.

What Personal Information do we collect?

CV and profile registration

If you create an account on then you'll provide us with your email address, first and last name, password. In addition your jobseeker profile includes your location, years of work experience, sector specialism, qualifications, current job title, salary, desired job title, willingness to relocate, availability, eligibility to work in the UK, as well as your CV document.

You will know what details we are obtaining as you will be able to see on the Register CV page whatever it is that we are requesting from you in order to register.

IP address data

We also collect IP address data; this is a unique number assigned to each individual computer on a network.

Site activity data

We collect job application data (the roles you’ve browsed and applied for), your marketing preferences, and job alert emails created.

We collect statistical data about all our site visitors, but this data is not personally identifiable, it is aggregated data about how all site visitors interact with our website.


We also collect information by using cookies.

For more information on cookies and how we use them, see

Why is Personal Information being collected?

The processing of your Personal Information is necessary to provide you with the service for which you desire. Clearly Jobs Ltd may process your data when we need to do this to fulfil a contract with you, such as to send your details and CV to an employer or recruiter for a specific job application you have made.

We collect data to understand your needs, to provide you with a better service and a more relevant jobseeker experience.

We collect profile and CV data to save you time when applying for jobs, to tailor the types of jobs we might send in email marketing campaigns (if you have opted to receive them) and so that recruiters and employers who have been granted access to our CV database are able to headhunt you for relevant jobs (if you have opted to set your profile and CV to “searchable” in your profile).

The statistical, aggregated data we collect is used to inform business decisions on how to improve the jobseeker experience, as well as to share top level data to clients (e.g. the total number of unique visitors to the site each month).

What legal basis do we rely on to process your Personal Information?


We rely on your consent for all promotional messages via email, whether that is a newsletter or job alert by email. You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time, either by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the footer of the email, or by updating your preferences within your profile. If you need any assistance please contact

To fulfil a contract

We may process your data when we need to do this to fulfil a contract with you, such as to send your CV to an employer or recruiter for a specific job application.

Legitimate interests

Clearly Jobs Ltd may process data when it is in our legitimate interests to do so in operating our business. These include:

  • Personalising website content and emails (e.g. making job recommendations based on your preferences and experience) to improve your job search experience.
  • Sharing your CV with an employer or recruiter to progress or complete your job application.

Legal obligation

Clearly Jobs Ltd may process your data to comply with legal and regulatory obligations (e.g. investigating fraudulent activity, working with law enforcement agencies).

Who do we share your Personal Information with?

If you have opted to make your CV and profile “searchable” then recruiters and employers who have an agreement with us may view your CV and contact you about jobs which they consider match your experience. We ask recruiters to only retain your CV for as long as necessary and not to use it for purposes other than recruitment.

How long is Personal Information kept for?

We store Personal Information for as long is required in order to deliver a service to you, that is both useful and still required. As such we will keep candidate profile and CV data indefinitely to enable candidates to return to our sites in the future in order to apply for their next job as their career evolves. Candidates can login and apply for jobs using their stored profile and CV. Typically candidates will make applications a number of years apart. Occasionally we may send out emails to registered candidates who have been inactive for some years asking whether they still wish to remain registered. In this instance when no response has been received the data stored for that particular individual will be deleted.

We have a legitimate business interest in retaining CVs and candidate profiles in order for candidates to keep track of their previous job applications and monitor the job market through job alert emails. Candidates have complete control to upload, amend or delete their profile and CV at any time.

What we won’t do with your data

We won’t supply your Personal Information to third parties unless we have your consent to do so or the law requires it.

Please do not share sensitive personal data
