Your personal information collected on this website
In some instances, we may need more specific information about you, such as name, address, email address, telephone number, etc. We would collect this information if you were to apply for a job via this website or to sign up for a service, for example. We may also ask you for other information such as the types of jobs you are interested in and your workplace concerns in order to provide you with the best possible service and internet experience.
How we collect your personal information
Generally, the type of personal information we collect about you is the information included in your application or resume, for example, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, career history, details of any competency tests or other information relating to your career.
Where practical we collect personal information directly from you. We may collect personal information about you by telephone, letter, fax, e-mail, or from visiting a job advertising website.
In some circumstances, we may also collect sensitive information about you such as facts about membership of a professional or trade association or trade union; health (including any disability), racial or ethnic origin or any criminal record. Where we collect this type of information we will obtain consent.
We collect personal information for any one or more of the following purposes:
- potential employers
- clients who may wish to engage the candidate services as a contractor or temporary
- organisations that conduct competency or psychometric tests and referees
- a workers compensation body and suppliers of services to us and our related entities
- depending on the circumstances, to the Australian Federal Police to verify if there is a criminal record
- educational or vocational organisations to the extent necessary to verify qualifications
If we engage third party contractors to perform services for us which involves handling personal information we take reasonable steps to prohibit the contractor from using personal information except for the purposes for which it was supplied.
How do we store personal information?
Safeguarding the privacy of your information is important to us, whether you interact with us personally, by phone, mail, over the internet or other electronic medium. We hold personal information in a combination of secure computer storage facilities and paper-based files and other records, and take steps to protect the personal information we hold from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
We may need to maintain records for a significant period of time. However, when we consider information is no longer needed, we will remove any details that will identify you or we will securely destroy the records.
