Who Are We?

Wait, What Do You Mean Personal Information?
The personal information that we collect includes contact details, registration, education and employment history primarily as well as information about you – as a person! We collect information about current staff, income potential, and information pertinent to our business role. We collect this information from you, and with your permission we may also collect information from references, prior employers, and the registration body that you’re governed by. Please note, we do not collect personal information from persons under the age of 18 years.
What Are We Using It For?
The reason we do this, first and foremost, is to ascertain that you have the right qualifications and that we have all the information that we need to represent you to the best of our abilities. It gives us the information we need to advise you appropriately on what you may need to do for us to best assist you. There are also things that we need to have on file, so that when we find you a job or a staff member, we’re able to complete the required documentation and also – to meet our own compliance requirements! Other information we ask you, may be to determine what you need to be fully satisfied professionally.
We will not be collecting information other than what is necessary for us to use in the course of our work
