Privacy Statement
Collecting your personal information
We may collect your name, e-mail address, postal address and telephone number, details of your current and previous employment history, work performance, education and training and any other information that you decide to share with us, including your CV.
There may be occasions when we will source personal information about you from an external third party (including from your previous employer and named referees included on your application form or curriculum vitae), or from other publicly available sources, such as corporate websites and professional networking sites (including LinkedIn).

Collecting sensitive information
Depending on the nature of a role applied for, we may need to collect and process sensitive personal information about you which may include information about your health (including details of any sick leave taken during your previous roles), details of any disability, details of any offences you have committed or are alleged to have committed and whether you are a member of any professional or trade associations. You may refuse to provide any of the sensitive personal information we request, however, this may restrict our ability to provide the recruitment or other related services you have requested.
In addition, as part of our commitment to equality of opportunity and to monitor compliance with our equal opportunity policy, we may ask you to complete an equality monitoring form. Where you are asked to complete an equality monitoring form, information is provided voluntarily and on an anonymous basis for statistical analysis. It is not stored with your other personal records.
Reasons for collecting personal information
We collect your personal information so that we can provide our services to you, including to:
  • provide you with information about job vacancies and to assist you in finding a suitable position;
  • maintain our business relationship, where you are a user of our website, a client or candidate;
  • provide you with recruitment services - which may include career guidance and management;
  • manage a temporary or contract assignment - if you are engaged as a temporary worker;
  • inform you of events, services and possible job opportunities using contact details you have provided;
  • analyse visitor trends and traffic on our websites – this information does not identify you individually;
  • assist in managing our relationship with you and our clients and perform administration or operational functions;
  • carry out market research, marketing analysis and satisfaction surveys; and
  • direct market recruitment services to you and recruitment opportunities that we feel may be of interest, advise you of news and industry updates, events, promotions and competitions reports and other information. Where we do this you will be able to unsubscribe from such communications.
How your personal information is collected
Personal information may be obtained through our websites (e.g. when you submit your curriculum vitae or application) or via one of our recruitment consultants (when you contact them, send them your curriculum vitae or application, connect with them on LinkedIn or similar professional networking sites, or discuss a recruitment opportunity with them).
Although we do not make it compulsory to give us every item of information we ask for, the more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we can tailor our services to your needs. If the personal information we have requested is not collected, we may not be able to provide the recruitment or other related services to you.
We may occasionally contact you with information about some of our other recruitment opportunities that we feel may be of interest to you. This will only come from Baby Barristers and only if you have not objected.

Disclosure of your personal information
In the course of providing our services we may need to disclose your personal information to other companies (including to trusted third parties) for the purposes for which it is primarily held or for a related or secondary purpose.
We may:
  • for the purposes of providing recruitment services to you, pass your personal information to our employees;
  • disclose or transfer your personal information to prospective employers where you are interested in an available position or where you have otherwise agreed we may disclose it;
  • in the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership or transfer of assets disclose your personal information to such third parties provided that they agree only to use your personal information for the purposes that you have provided it to us;
  • disclose aggregate statistics about our site visitors and candidates in order to describe our services to prospective partners, clients and other reputable third parties and for other lawful purposes – in such cases these statistics will include no personally identifying information.
We may disclose personal information, if required to do so by law, a court order or by a regulatory authority of competent jurisdiction.
