Privacy Policy


This privacy notice describes how we collect and use the personal information you provide to us, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

What information do we collect, and how?

We collect information when you register on our site, respond to a survey, fill out a form, send us your CV or when you apply via a third party website or job board.

When registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your: name, e-mail address, mailing address or phone number. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.

All data is stored on our secure database, and documents that hold sensitive personal information are stored on a secure server.

What do we use your information for?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

  • To match your skills with our job vacancies, to assist you finding suitable roles
  • To submit your details to our clients for you to be considered for vacancies
  • Help to continually improve our website and your experience
  • We will check qualifications and RCVS registration when required to fill a job vacancy
  • To send emails, or make phone calls regarding job opportunities, and to enquire about availability
  • The email address you provide may be used to send you information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

Job Alerts

We may on occasion contact candidates stored in our database who are not actively looking for a new role. When you apply for a Job using our website you will be asked to tick a box indicating that you consent to us storing the personal data you have provided. By providing consent to our storage of your personal data you are also providing consent to us contacting you if we receive details of a role which specifically matches your career aspirations. We will only do this where you, the potential candidate, meet a detailed brief provided by one of our clients, and where you have provided explicit consent to us storing and using your data.

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.

Request to have personal data amended

It is likely that over time your employment history will require updating as you transition to new roles or receive a promotion. Simply Vets & Nurses update your registration within two weeks of receiving an updated Curriculum Vitae.

Under the GDPR you have the right to ask for access to your personal information. Once Simply Vets & Nurses have verified your identity we will provide the information you requested within 30 days.

In the unlikely event you find personal data stored about you by Simply Vets & Nurses is inaccurate, you must advise us immediately. We will amend your personal registration within two weeks.

Request to have personal data removed or deleted

Upon receipt of a request to delete an individual’s personal registration, Simply Vets & Nurses will ensure that your personal record is deleted within 30 days.

Where Simply Vets & Nurses have placed a candidate in a role, they are required to retain evidence of that placing so that contractual obligations can be met by the client. Simply Vets & Nurses will, however, take steps to ensure only minimal personal data is retained and we will not make further contact with the candidate.

Where Simply Vets & Nurses have previously received permission to share personal information with a third party, for example for short listing for a role, we undertake to advise that third party of your wish to be forgotten if communication has been in the last 12 months.

Due to the nature of recruitment, a significant number of candidates reconnect with our organisation periodically. It is not uncommon for this to occur years after we have placed them in a role. For this reason, your consent includes explicit consent to retain your personal details until such time as you wish us to delete your records from our database or refrain from further engagement.

In the event that you wish to be erased from our database you should contact info@vetsandnurses.com. Please make it clear that you wish to be erased, rather than simply marked as no longer job seeking.

Notification of Breaches

Whilst Simply Vets & Nurses do not store, or at any time request, financial information from candidates, we do store personal information contained within your Curriculum Vitae. We are aware of our responsibility as a recruiter to protect your information and to only share details with third parties upon receipt of your consent. All of our systems are protected and only Simply Vets & Nurses staff and consultants working for Simply Vets & Nurses have access to the personal information stored in your registration.

In the unlikely event that our computer systems are compromised and there is a potential loss of confidentiality, we will report this breach to you.

In the unlikely event that personal data is taken or exposed from Simply Vets & Nurses records without our consent, we will provide reports surrounding that exposure within 72 hours of being notified of such an event and take any action necessary to restore the security of your personal data.

Access

If Simply Vets & Nurses receive a request for access to personal information we will verify your identify before releasing your personal data to you. We will not release information to any third party.

If you would like to make a request for access to your personal information please contact: info@vetsandnurses.com
