Skilled People Limited Privacy Policy, May 2018


We are committed to protecting your privacy, and keeping your personal or business information confidential and secure at all times.

Our Legal Obligations

The Data Protection Act 1998 laid down principles for the use of data, and put obligations on us as the users of personal information. In addition, we are committed to complying with the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018. Looking after the personal information you share with us is very important, and we want you to be confident that your personal data is kept safely and securely and to understand how we use it to offer you a good service.

A key principle of the Act states that data must be used fairly and lawfully. To meet this obligation, we ensure that individuals, companies or organisations who register with this site are aware of how we intend to use certain information before they supply it. This enables them to make an informed decision whether to supply the information requested or not.

If we make changes to this notice we will notify you by updating it on our website. We will be what is known as the ‘Data Controller’ of the personal data you provide to us, and we will sometimes refer to ourselves in this notice as “we” or “us”. By Data Controller, this means Skilled People Limited determines the purposes and way in which any personal data are stored or will be processed.

It is your responsibility to ensure that any information you give us is up to date. You may change the information that we hold about you, your company or organisation by logging in and visiting the appropriate Administration Area, where a number of options are available.

Use of Data

We want to keep you up to date with information about new jobs, opportunities, complementary services, special offers and improvements to our website. When you set your account up, we ask you if you want to receive this type of marketing information.

With your permission, we may use your contact details from time to time to provide you with information about us, or products and services which we think may interest you. You can withdraw this permission at any time by emailing us at administration@skilledpeople.com.

Skilled People Limited will not physically share or provide your personal information with companies outside of Skilled People for their marketing purposes although we will conduct marketing activity on their behalf from time to time. We will retain total control of the data at all times.

If you decide you do not want to receive details of new jobs and complementary marketing information you can request that we stop by writing to the Data Protection Officer at the address provided below or emailing administration@skilledpeople.com. You can also unsubscribe at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link within our marketing emails. 

You may continue to receive mailings for a short period while your request is dealt with.

Data and Job Applications

When a candidate applies for a job through skilledpeople.com their details will be sent direct to an employer or recruiter. The employer or recruiter will have placed a job advertisement either direct on to the skilledpeople.com website or through a third party aggregator.

In registering with skilledpeople.com a candidate gives their full and unreserved permission for their contact and personal details to be supplied to any company or organisation that either places a job advertisement direct on the skilledpeople.com site direct or via a third party. Neither skilledpeople.com or Skilled People Limited provide any warranties whatsoever regarding the nature of companies or organisations advertising for staff, or the jobs they are advertising.

It is the responsibility of candidates to take the appropriate action to satisfy themselves that the companies or organisations are bona fide and that the jobs advertised conform with UK employment legislation.

Accessing Data

All data and personal information that we hold about you is limited to what you provide in the first instance during the registration process and CV uploading. We will not add to or supplement that information in any way. 

As a registered user of this site, you have the right to ask for a copy of any information that we hold about you, your company or organisation on our database. Requests for copies of any such information must be made in writing to the Data Protection Officer, Skilled People Limited, 26 Leeward Gardens, London, SW19 7QR.

Loss of information
