If you are a Candidate, we may use your personal data to:

  • Assess and verify your potential suitability for employment with a Client;
  • Contact you in relation to any potential employment opportunities with a Client;
  • Introduce you to our Clients and potentially arrange for you to fill a Client vacancy;
  • Stay in regular contact with you to understand your current position, career aspirations and motivation for finding new employment;
  • Where applicable, make payments to you or arrange for any third-party company through which you may contract to make payments to you;
  • Contact you to ask for a referral;
  • Produce anonymised statistical data;
  • Comply with our legal obligations, defend or bring any legal proceedings and prevent fraud or any other crime; and
  • Conduct equal opportunities monitoring.

If you are a Client Contact, we may use your personal data to:

  • Contact you to obtain information about our Client’s requirements;
  • Liaise with you so that we may effectively perform the services to our Client;
  • Obtain a reference for a Candidate;
  • Contact you for invoicing and credit control purposes;
  • Comply with our legal obligations, defend or bring any legal proceedings and prevent fraud or any other crime.

If you are a Referee, we may use your personal data to:

  • Provide a copy of the reference to our Client;
  • Comply with our legal obligations, defend or bring any legal proceedings and prevent fraud or any other crime.

  • Comply with our legal obligations, defend or bring any legal proceedings and prevent fraud or any other crime.

Our Lawful Basis for Processing Data

We have determined that we have a legitimate interest to process your personal data where you are:

  • A Candidate, on the basis that it is necessary for us to maintain a database of individuals who are (i) actively seeking new employment with a Client or (ii) potentially suitable for employment with a Client. By processing your personal data and contacting you from time to time, we are able to gain an understanding of your current role (where applicable), your skills and experience, and your career aspirations. Our processing of your personal data is therefore of benefit to:
  • You, as it assists us to identify new employment opportunities about which you might not otherwise been aware and to give general advice and guidance in support of your career development;
  • Our Clients, who rely on us to have access to suitable, pre-qualified candidates who can fill their requirements; and
  • Us, as we are a commercial enterprise which relies upon being able to introduce Candidates to our Clients

If you are a Candidate, we may also need to process sensitive (special) personal data relating to you. The type of sensitive personal data which we might process includes (i) information about any medical conditions or disability insofar as they are relevant to the type of work which you are proposing to carry out (ii) information about any unspent criminal convictions and, where relevant to the type of role which you are carrying out, spent convictions, police warnings etc and (iii) information about any trade union of which you are a member (but only insofar as it relates to an employment claim or pay and working conditions on a client site).

We are acting as an employment agency and/or an employment business in our dealings with you. In accordance with Article 9 (2)(b) of the GDPR, this sensitive personal data is necessary for performing our obligations as an employment agency/employment business and is used solely for this purpose. Any sensitive personal data shall be removed in accordance with our policy on data retention.

We may also process equal opportunities information relating to you, but will be anonymised and, at that stage, is not personal data.

  • A Client Contact, on the basis that we need to be able to contact and interact with the individuals who are employed or engaged by our Clients. This will allow us to effectively provide services to them, better understand their requirements and generate revenue for our business.
  • A Referee, on the basis that we are generally required to obtain references to comply with our contractual obligations to third parties and, in some instances, we are under a legal obligation to do so. It is therefore necessary and reasonable for us to process personal data relating to you strictly for compliance with these obligations.
  • A Supplier Representative, on the basis that we need to be able to contact and interact with the individuals who are employed or engaged by our Suppliers. This will allow us to ensure that our Suppliers provide us with the best possible service which, in turn, is of direct benefit to both our Candidates and our Clients.

Where We Process Personal Data

Your personal data is held and processed by us in the United Kingdom.

In addition to our database, we may use Microsoft OneDrive to store personal data relating to you. We have ascertained that this data is kept within a data centre within the United Kingdom.

We have put in place appropriate safeguards to ensure that your data is only transferred to jurisdictions with enforceable data subject rights and effective legal remedies in respect of data privacy breaches. We will therefore only transfer your personal data to jurisdictions outside of the EEA where:

  • There are binding corporate rules in place regarding the transfer of such data within the Group, in accordance with Article 47 of the GDPR. This means that the data transfer is between group companies and those group companies have agreed to share that data in accordance with the rules specified by the European Commission.
  • The European Commission has made an adequacy decision in respect of such jurisdiction. This means that the European Commission has pre-approved the data privacy regime in the relevant non-EEA country. At present, the European Commission-approved jurisdictions are Andorra, Argentina, Canada (commercial organisations), Faroe Islands, Guernsey, Israel, Isle of Man, Jersey, New Zealand, Switzerland, Uruguay and the US (limited to the Privacy Shield framework).
  • The transfer of data is subject to the model contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission. This means that we have a data-sharing agreement in place which complies with the requirements set out by the European Commission; or
  • You have expressly given informed consent to the transfer of such data. This means that you have not only agreed to the transfer but have done so in the knowledge that your data may be transferred to a jurisdiction which does not give you the same degree of protection as you have within the EEA.

Parties with Whom We May Share Data

If you are a Candidate, we may share your personal data for legitimate purposes with:

  • A Client where you have expressed an interest in being introduced to such Client or are being supplied to such Client on an assignment;
  • Any third-party which is engaged by the Client to assist them in the recruitment process including a managed service company, Recruitment Process Outsourcing provider or IT services provider;
  • A third-party company through which you are contracting;
  • A third-party company to which you have specifically asked to be introduced or referred, such as an insurance company or intermediary (umbrella) company;
  • Background checking services such as the Disclosure & Barring Service;
  • Industry bodies such as the Construction Industry Training Board and any similar organisations which are relevant to the market sector in which you work;
  • Third-Party Services Providers who in some cases may use their own subcontractors and sub-processors;
  • Our bankers and recruitment finance providers;
  • Governmental departments and agencies where we are permitted or required by law to do so.

We may also share your personal data with Clients on an anonymised basis where we have agreed to provide general statistical information to such Clients.

If you are a Client Contact, we may share very limited data relating to you with a Candidate where such sharing is strictly required for the recruitment process e.g. so that the Candidate may contact you directly. We will also share your personal data with Third-Party Services Providers for legitimate business purposes.

If you are a Referee, we will share with our Clients the details of any reference which you may give. We will usually provide your name, job title and employer name when doing so. In some circumstances and only when you have agreed to such disclosure, we will provide your contact details so that our Client may verify the reference or ask for further information. We will also share your personal data with Third-Party Services Providers for legitimate business purposes.

If you are a Supplier Representative, we will share your personal data with other Third-Party Services Providers for legitimate business purposes.

Our Website

If you interact with our website at www.thehighfieldcompany.com, we may process information relating to your usage of the website. However, unless you are submitting information through our website as a Candidate or Client Contact, the information which we process is anonymised and not therefore personal data within the meaning of the Data Protection Legislation.

Automated Decision Making

Automated decision-making takes place when an electronic system uses personal information to make a decision without human intervention.

All decisions which are made in the course of our business processes involve human intervention. We do not therefore expect to make any decisions about you using automated means, whether you are a Candidate, Client Contact, Referee or Supplier Representative.

Data Security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. Details of these measures may be obtained from the Operations Director.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

Data Retention

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Our standard data retention period is three years from the last date on which we are in actual contact with you i.e. where we actually speak with you or exchange correspondence. After this time, we will usually remove your personal data from our records.

Where we are required to keep any information (i) for auditing or compliance purposes (ii) to comply with our contractual obligations to third parties or (iii) in respect of any potential or actual legal proceedings, we shall keep your data for as long as is strictly necessary for these purposes, which is typically for seven years in respect of audit data which we may be required to produce for HRMC and/or to prove compliance with our contractual and legal obligations.

In some circumstances we may completely anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.

Rights of access, correction, erasure, and restriction

Your duty to inform us of changes. It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your working relationship with us.

Your rights in connection with personal information. Under certain circumstances, you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal information (a Subject Access Request). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. You will not usually have to pay a fee to access your personal information but we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to remove or remove personal information where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed or you have objected to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing.
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest and you object on “grounds relating to your particular situation.”
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to block or suppress the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it or if you have also objected to the processing as above.
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party when the processing is based on consent and carried out by automated means. This right is not applicable to any data processing carried out by The Highfield Company.

If you want to exercise any of the above rights, please contact the Operations Director in writing. We will consider your request and confirm the actions which we have taken in response to such request.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is an appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact the Operations Director. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law. We will confirm the actions which we have taken in respect of any such request.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of the manner in which we have processed your personal data or dealt with your decision to exercise any of the rights set out in this section, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioners Office in the United Kingdom. Their details are:

Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF
