Data Retention Policy

Record keeping

All businesses must keep personnel and financial records in order to run their business efficiently and to comply with statutory requirements. The type of record determines the length of time the record must be kept for.


Our obligations to you:

All records will be kept in accordance with data protection laws, with extra care being taken with 'sensitive personal data' i.e. data relating to race, ethnic origin, political or religious opinions or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, data concerning health or criminal records.

We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office.

We are not required to keep original documents – but copies will be stored in electronic format.

If erasing or destroying records, then destruction will be carried out securely


Personnel records

Work-seeker records including application form/CV, ID checks, terms of engagement, details of assignments, opt-out notices and interview notes will be kept for upto 1 year from the last date of providing work-finding services as an Employment Agency or Employment Business (Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 (Conduct Regulations)). Please note, we are under no legal obligation to keep records in relation to applications that do not progress.



Under data protection laws, we are required to only keep records for as long as is necessary. However, the Conduct Regulations require that we keep references for 1 year.


Records held relating to right to work in the UK

We will keep this information for upto 2 years after employment or engagement has ended.
