Purposes of the processing and the legal basis for the processing

We use information held about you in the following ways:

  • The introduction of candidates to our clients for the purpose of temporary or permanent engagement. Our service expands to supporting individuals throughout their career and to supporting businesses’ resourcing needs and strategies. With this in mind, we have a community of contacts that we research and contact on a regular basis.
  • To carry out our obligations to candidates on our payroll, arising from contracts between you and ENI.
  • To provide you with the information, products and services that you request from us or we think will be of interest to you because they are relevant to your career or to your organisation

Our legal basis for the processing of personal data is our legitimate business interest, described in more detail below, although we will also rely on contract and legal obligation for specific uses of data.

We will rely on contract if we are negotiating or have entered into a temporary placement contract with you or your organisation to work for a third party whilst on our payroll.

We will rely on legal obligation if we are legally required to hold information on you to fulfil our legal obligations; for example a visa to work in a particular country.

Our legitimate business interests

Our legitimate business interests in collecting and retaining your personal data are described below:

  • As a recruitment business and agency we introduce candidates to clients for permanent employment, temporary worker placements or independent professional contracts. The exchange of personal data of our candidates and our client contacts is fundamental, essential part of this process.
  • In order to support our candidates’ career aspirations and our clients’ resourcing needs we require a database of candidate and client personal data containing historical information as well as current resourcing requirements.
  • To maintain, expand and develop our business we need to record the personal data of prospective candidates and client contacts.
  • To deliver our ancillary services and satisfy legislative requirements, financial records, surveys, and consultancy.

Other uses we may make of your data

We will use this information:

  • To administer our site and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes.
  • To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.
  • To make suggestions and recommendations to you and other users of our site about goods or services that may interest you or them.
  • To send newsletters and other marketing information/invitations from ENI and our associated companies.

Retention of your data

We understand our legal duty to retain accurate data and only retain personal data for as long as we need it for our legitimate business interests and that you are happy for us to do so. Accordingly, we have a data retention policy and run data routines to remove data that we no longer have a legitimate business interest in maintaining.

ENI is keen to ensure the data we have on you is current and accurate. To do this we do the following:

  • You can log into the website and update your registration details.

  • We keep in touch from time to time, so you can let us know of changes to your personal data
  • ENI follow social media about the industry.
  • ENI welcome updates from all our contacts via email to your consultant or telephone 0207 836 3311.

We segregate our data so that we keep different types of data for different time periods. The criteria we use to determine whether we should retain your personal data includes:

  • The nature of the personal data;
  • Its perceived accuracy;
  • Our legal obligations;
  • Whether an interview or placement has been arranged; and
  • Our recruitment expertise and knowledge of the industry by country, sector and job role.

We may archive part or all of your personal data or retain it on our financial systems only, deleting all or part of it from our main Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) system.

We retain data in accordance to the minimum retention periods for certain types of data, including:

  • Records under the Conduct Regs – 1 year from last contact with candidate.
  • Right to work checks – 2 years after end of employment.
  • Payroll/wage records – 6 years from financial year-end.
  • PAYE records – 3 years from the end of the applicable tax year.
