How Leading Resolutions uses your information
In order to consider you for employment, or engage your services, Leading Resolutions needs to collect personal data about you.
It is in the legitimate interests of Leading Resolutions to ensure that prospective Employees and Consultants meet a required standard, to offer employment or engagement of services. There is also a duty of care to you as an Employee, to comply with employment law and to enable the fulfilment of any contract that may exist between yourself and Leading Resolutions. Failure to provide the required information in a timely manner may result in us being unable to provide you with employment.
Leading Resolutions will process – that means collect, store and use – the information you provide in a manner that is compatible with the GDPR. We will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date and not keep it for longer than is necessary. In some instances, the law sets the length of time information must be kept, but in most cases, we use a set of retention rules to ensure that data is not retained any longer than to fulfil the purpose for which is has been collected. For successfully engaged individuals, some of the information we collect will become part of your long-term personnel file. As we operate a flexible resource model, we do also retain a database of prospective Consultants. We periodically delete prospect data where we have not been able to make contact for 12 months and we immediately remove any prospect data on request from that individual. Our retention rules are contained within our Record of Processing Activities.
The aim is not to be intrusive and we will not ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. Moreover, the information you provide to us will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure. These measures are described in our Data Protection and Information Security Policies.

Disclosure of your personal data
Leading Resolutions will never disclose your data to other parties for their own use. Your personal data may be passed on to our service providers for example vetting agencies, insurers, employee benefits, pension providers, time recording and HR Systems, payroll, training providers and occupational health professionals who are contracted to us during your employment lifecycle. These service providers are obliged to keep your details secure and use them only for the specific services that they provide for you, on our behalf. Once this service need has been satisfied they will dispose of data in line with our retention procedures.
In addition to this, Leading Resolutions provides services to clients. In circumstances where your resource forms part of such a service, your name and skills profile may be provided to those clients so that you can be identified and set up to work on those client sites.
Leading Resolutions may give out your work mobile number and work email addresses as part of day-to-day business operations, to facilitate correspondence between our employees, our clients and our suppliers.
In rare circumstances, we operate services overseas. If you have volunteered for such an assignment, any transfer of your information overseas will only happen where adequate levels of data protection are in place, with effective safeguards such as binding corporate rules.
You have the right to access information held about you. You have a right to request a copy of the personal data you have provided, to be sent to you or other parties in machine readable format (data portability). Where there are any changes to the purposes for which your data is processed, or any changes to the way in which your personal data is disclosed, you have a right to be informed of these changes. Leading Resolutions will do this by updating our privacy policies on our website and / or contacting you with the relevant information in a timely and transparent manner.
You have the right to ask for your personal data to be rectified where there is an inaccuracy and you have the right to ask for your personal data to be erased, where there is no overriding legal basis for it to be retained.
