The Company is a leadership advisory and executive search consultancy group which includes Bateman Collins International and Map Room Consulting. We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of data which we collect and hold. In line with this commitment, our group wide privacy policy details how we process the data provided by customers, candidates and any third parties for which we hold and collect data.

Data Collection and Usage

The Bateman Collins Group collects, hold and processes personal data (including sensitive personal data) so that we can provide executive search consultancy and advisory services to clients and candidates.

You may give your personal information to the Company directly, such as on an application or registration form or via our website, or we may receive them from another publicly available source or a third party, such as a career website. If the Company sourced your data from a third party we will inform you how we obtained your data and whether the information came from a publicly accessible source.

By providing your personal data to the Bateman Collins Group you agree that you would like to be considered for confidential executive search assignments which we undertake on behalf of our clients. This information will typically include data from your CV such as name, address, phone number, email address, employment history, education and qualifications. It may also include remuneration and compensation information, contact history and reference information.

We may also collect and hold sensitive data for which we will seek explicit consent. This may include data relating to age, nationality, race and ethnicity, religious beliefs, trade union and political party membership, sexual orientation, fraud and criminal record. We may also collect and hold demographic and diversity data to help our clients address diversity needs. Where we progress your application, we will gain your consent to verify accuracy of information you have provided, such as your identity, right to work, address or work history, qualifications, work performance as well as contacting referees

Transfer of Personal Information

Bateman Collins will only share a candidate’s personal information with a named and agreed client with an individual’s explicit authorisation.

Your information may be provided to clients in line with this agreement on a confidential basis, or when required by a law or third party (e.g. client, regulator, security services, background checking agent). Individual’s will be informed when and where your personal information is disclosed.

The Company may transfer only the information you provide to us to countries outside the European Economic Area (‘EEA’) for the purposes of providing you with the services outlined in this policy. The EEA comprises the EU member states plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

 Data Storage and Retention

 Your personal information provided to the Bateman Collins Group will be held securely within our database. This is only accessible by BCG employees.

We will retain your personal data for only as long as these purposes are fulfilled or as required by law (such as the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003). We will keep your payroll records, holiday pay, sick pay and pensions auto-enrolment records as legally required by HMRC and associated national minimum wage, social security and tax legislation.

Where the Company has obtained your consent to process your personal and/or your sensitive personal data we will do so in line with this policy.  Upon expiry of that period the Company will seek further consent from you. Where consent is not granted the Company will cease to process your personal and/or your sensitive personal data.

Please be assured that we do not sell your information to third parties or use the information for purposes other than those outlined in this policy.

 Data and Information Security

We take appropriate steps to ensure your data is kept secure at all times. We have technology and organisational safeguards in place to protect against the loss, destruction, misuse, disclosure and unauthorised access to personal data under our control. We will only remove your data when it is no longer required for the stated provision of services.
