Privacy Policy

Gold Group is committed to protecting your privacy in all our dealings with you, whether through our website's online services or through direct contact with our consultants. When using our website, we want you to have a safe and secure experience. We will endeavour to ensure that the information you submit to us remains private, and is only used for the purposes set out in this policy.

Statistical information

We use Google analytics to analyse how many visitors come to the site and to track how they use it - take a look at Google's Privacy Policy (opens in a new window). We only use such data in aggregate form and the information helps us to improve the services we offer our visitors. We may use other tracking technologies in future but we will amend this policy to explain their use if we do.

Use of Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that is sent from a web server to a web browser when that browser visits the server's site. Anonymous cookies which do not hold any personal data are used on our website to enable the functioning of the vacancy basket and to aid in our analytics of site usage. Use of this website means you are agreeing to the use of such cookies.

What information do we collect when you register?

For specific services (which include vacancy email alerts), we ask you to register. This involves you submitting information including name, email address, password, professional institute membership, level of qualification, location and the industry sector you work in. You are under no obligation to provide such information. However if you withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services.

Vacancy email alerts

To utilise our vacancy email alerts service (Job alert), you will be required to register. The information collected is used for the purpose of keeping you informed by email of the latest jobs that match the search criteria you have selected.

Should you decide that you no longer wish to receive vacancy email alerts, you can simply either log-on and choose not to have vacancy email alerts sent or you can follow the "unsubscribe" instructions on each vacancy alert sent to you and the service will be de-activated on your behalf.

Curriculum vitae ("CV")

We give you the option of submitting your CV via this website. You can do this either to apply for a specific advertised job or for consideration by our recruitment consultants for positions as they come up. Your CV will not be stored on our website, it will be stored on our secure in-house computer network, accessible only by Gold Group’s recruitment consultants. Your CV will be emailed directly to our recruitment consultants who will process your application and, with your consent, enter your details onto our in-house database. This database, including the information relating to you, can only be accessed by Gold Group’s recruitment consultants.

You have the right at any time to ask us for a copy of the information supplied by you that we hold. We have the right to charge a small fee for this service. You also have the right to ask Gold Group to stop using your information.

Your CV will be sent to prospective employers, but only where you give your consent.

The information we collect and how we use it

Your personal details, including your name, email address and CV, are held and used by us for the following purposes:

  • Following an assessment of your requirements, for matching your coded details with vacancies to assist us in finding you a new position
  • To periodically keep you informed of our services
  • For compiling salary and other market surveys
