We provide executive search and leadership consulting services including: management assessment, benchmarking, gap and development analysis.
We at Renaissance Leadership take your personal data seriously. This policy:
We collect the information necessary to be able to find available opportunities and further information needed to assess your eligibility through the different stages of recruitment. This information includes CV’s, identification documents, educational records, work history, employment, references and LinkedIn profiles.
In the case of international candidates, we may also collect sensitive personal data about you, in the form of passports and visas. We only collect sensitive personal data from you and further process this data, where you have given your explicit consent
The following are the different sources where we may collect personal data about you from:
We use your personal data to match your skills, experience and education with a potential employer. We will initially collect basic information on you such as contact details, job role and experience and then pass this on to the client in search of personnel. If you are chosen by the client and go through to the next stage we will then be collecting more information from you at the interview (or equivalent) stage and onwards in that manner.
We only retain your information for as long as is necessary for us to use your information as described above or to comply with our legal obligations. However, please be advised that we may retain some of your information after you cease to use our services, for instance if this is necessary to meet our legal obligations, such as retaining the information for tax and accounting purposes.
When determining the relevant retention periods, we will take into account factors including:
Otherwise, we securely erase your information once this is no longer needed.
We share your personal data with the client who has a position to fill, in order to determine with the client whether you are a good fit for the available position. Our clients are typically early stage VC backed digital and enterprise technology businesses or corporate businesses and are usually located in the UK, EU and the US. Please see “Our Clients” page on our website.
We may also conduct checks on you to verify the information you have provided. Where this is necessary you will be advised accordingly.
For prospective candidates, interim managers, referees and clients, our processing is necessary for our legitimate interests in that we need the information in order to be able to assess suitability for potential roles, to find potential candidates and to contact clients and referees. We carry out a ‘balancing test’ to ensure that our processing is necessary and that your fundamental rights of privacy are not outweighed by our legitimate interests, before we go ahead with such processing. We keep a record of these balancing tests. You have a right to and can find out more about the information in these balancing tests by contacting us using the details below.
If you are shortlisted as a candidate then this may involve the processing of more detailed personal data including sensitive data that you or others provide about you. In that case, we always ask for your consent before undertaking such processing.
For clients, we may also rely on our processing being necessary to perform a contract for you, for example in contacting you.
If you do not provide the personal data necessary, or withdraw your consent for the processing of your personal data, we may not be able to match you with available job opportunities.
No, we do not carry out automated profiling.
We are committed to ensuring that your personal information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
In the unlikely event of a data breach and there is a potential loss of confidentiality we will report this breach to you within 72 hours of being notified of such an event and take any action necessary to restore security of your personal data.
To better match your employee profile with current opportunities we may transfer your personal data to clients and partners in countries outside the EEA. These countries privacy laws may be different from those in your home country. Where we transfer data to a country which has not been deemed to provide adequate data protection standards we always have security measures and approved model clauses in place to protect your personal data.
At present we may transfer personal data outside the EEA to the US or another country depending on the location of our client. You will be advised if we need to transfer your data outside the EEA.
To find out more about how we safeguard your information as related to transfers contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org
By law, you have a number of rights when it comes to your personal data. Further information and advice about your rights can be obtained from the data protection regulator in your country
You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. This is why we’re providing you with the information in this Policy.
This is so you’re aware and can check that we’re using your information in accordance with data protection law.
You are entitled to have your information corrected if it’s inaccurate or incomplete.
This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.
You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.
You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability.
You have the right to object to certain types of processing, including processing for direct marketing (i.e. if you no longer want to be contacted with potential opportunities).
You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process your personal data with your national data protection regulator.
If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal data with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw consent to us using your personal data for marketing purposes.
