Our primary business function
Evolve People is a Specialist Talent Retention & Recruitment Consultancy. The collection, management and use of personal information is crucial to the successful running of our business and delivery of service to our clients and candidates alike.
How we collect your personal information
The type of personal information we collect about you is generally collected from information you have provided to us in your application or resume. For example, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, career history, details of any competency tests or other information relating to your career, education and other personal interests.
Where practical we collect your personal information directly from you. We may also collect personal information about you when you deal with us by telephone, letter, fax or e-mail.
We collect personal information for any one or more of the following purposes:
- answering an inquiry by you regarding employment
- assisting you in finding employment
- assessing and administering applications for employment
- monitoring and reviewing recruitment assignments
- advising you in career management or recruitment prospects
- facilitating your recruitment to one of our clients
- registering your interest in finding employment in the future
- establishing or maintaining a relationship with you as either a client or potential candidate.
There may be occasions when we obtain personal information about you from a third party; for example, from your nominated referees; when receiving the results of a psychological or competency test; or obtaining performance feedback about your work. If we don’t have your prior consent, we will take reasonable steps to inform you that we have collected this personal information.
In the event your application for employment is unsuccessful, we will retain your personal details on file in case more suitable opportunities arise.
If you do not provide us with the information we seek we may be limited in our ability to provide you with our services.
You may contact/interact with us in an anonymous manner, but we may be limited in our responses due to confidentially agreements with our clients or other organisations.
