GDPR & Data Protection

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are a set of rules that govern the collection, storage and use of personal data in the EU. They were created to protect the privacy and rights of citizens and their data.

In recruitment, GDPR and data protection are of high importance due to the sensitive information collected and stored. On CV’s, personal information such as names, addresses, phone numbers and emails are stored. Therefore, It is highly important that this data is treated with the utmost sensitivity.

Here at ESD Recruitment, we ensure full compliance in line with GDPR and data protection. Most recently, our office manager Francesca White, completed her certificate of achievement in GDPR Training and data protection.

Francesca said:

“I found the course interesting. As I handle the operative’s data I gained further insight into how data should be handled. It also boosted my confidence to know I am handling the data correctly.”

Not only is this a great achievement for Francesca, but this ensures ESD Recruitment continues to follow all procedures for GDPR and data protection compliance.

In summary, GDPR and data protection are important considerations for ESD Recruitment. Ensuring our staff members are fully up to date with any training needed for compliance.
