Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains how we use any personal information we collect about you, whether we are in the process of helping you find a job, continuing our relationship with you once we have found you a role, providing you with a service, receiving a service from you, or you are using our website. 

Topics include: 


When you get in touch, apply for a job vacancy, register for our help to find a new job or contact us to help you recruit new staff, we will collect information about you. Website usage information is also collected using online application forms and cookies.

Candidate Data: We only ask for details that will genuinely help us to help you, such as your name, contact details, educational attainments, employment history, eligibility to work in the UK and salary information (and, of course, you may choose to share other relevant information with us). Where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and requirements, we may also collect information related to your health, diversity information or details of any criminal convictions. 

Client Data: If you are our customer, in the course of providing you with recruitment services, we will need to collect and use information about you, your business and individuals who are employed by your organisation. 

Supplier Data: We need a small amount of information from each of our suppliers to ensure that we can contact all of the relevant people at your organisation and communicate with you. We may also need other information such as your bank details so that we can pay for the services you provide on time. 

Website Data: We collect a limited amount of data from website users, which helps to improve your online experience and manage the services we provide. This includes information about how you use our website, the frequency you access it and the times that it is most popular. 


We will only use personal data where we may need it for a legitimate purpose, for instance, to help you find a new job, to respond to queries, or to reference against financial information. 

Candidate Data: The main reason for using the personal information you, or a referee, provide is to help you find employment or other work roles that might be suitable for you. The more data we have about you, the better our help can be. Where appropriate – and in accordance with local laws and requirements – we may also use your personal data to help with our marketing, profiling and diversity monitoring. We will seek your consent to undertake some of these activities. 

Client Data: The main reason we use your information is to ensure that contractual agreements between us can run smoothly. This may involve identifying candidates who we think will be the right fit for you and so the more information we have, the more bespoke our service can become. 

Supplier Data: The main reasons we use your personal data are to ensure that the contractual arrangements between us can be properly implemented so that the relationship can run smoothly, and comply with legal requirements. 

Website Data: The main reason we use data from website users, which helps to improve your online experience and manage the services we provide. This includes information about how you use our website, the frequency you access it and the times that it is most popular. 


Bryony Gibson Consulting will not share your information for marketing purposes with any other companies without your express permission. 

From time to time we would like to send you information about job vacancies and services we offer which may be of interest to you. If you have consented to receive marketing communications, you may opt-out at a later date. 

If you choose to opt-in to receive marketing information, whether that’s our job vacancies, latest blog posts or anything else, we will communicate with you by a combination of email, post and telephone, depending on your opt-in preferences. 

You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes or sharing your information with others (however rare that is). If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please email 

We will only use the information we’re allowed to by law, in order to provide any services you have requested because we have a legitimate business interest or where you agree to it. This may include the use of a third-party email client, which will mean transferring your details to that platform, but if we do that, we will ensure the security of any data we transfer. At present we use MailChimp.

If we have not had meaningful contact with you (or, where appropriate, the company you are working for or with) for a period of two years, we will delete your personal data from our systems, unless we believe in good faith that we are legally required to preserve it (e.g. because of our obligations to tax authorities, any anticipated litigation or financial payments).
