How we collect and aggregate information about visitors to our Site
We also collect information about the way job seekers and visitors use this Site in order to improve our services.

We may also undertake marketing profiling to help us identify services or jobs which may be of interest to you.
1. What are cookies?
A “cookie” is a piece of information that is stored on your computer’s hard drive and which records your navigation of a website so that, when you revisit that website, it can present tailored options to you based upon the stored information about your last visit. You can normally alter the settings of your browser to prevent acceptance of cookies.
Cookies are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your system.
We use “cookies” to:
- monitor site user traffic patterns and site usage. This helps us to understand how our users use our Site so that we can develop and improve the design, layout and functionality of the Site; and
- to help us to advertise to you jobs we think you will be interested in.
There are different kinds of cookies with different functions:
Session cookies: these are only stored on your computer during your web session. They are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. They usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page. They do not collect any information from your computer.
Persistent cookies: a persistent cookie is one stored as a file on your computer, and it remains there when you close your web browser. The cookie can be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again. We use persistent cookies for Google Analytics (see section 6 on Google Analytics) and for personalisation cookies (see section 7 on Personalisation Cookies).
The only third party cookies we use on our site are Google Analytics (please see section 6 on Google Analytics).
The cookies we use are explained below:
3. Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential to enable you to use the Site effectively (such as in applying for a job) and therefore cannot be turned off. Without these cookies, the services available to you on our Site cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.
4. Performance cookies
These cookies enable us to monitor and improve the performance of our Site. For example, they allow us to count visits, identify traffic sources and see which parts of the Site are most popular. We use Google Analytics for this purpose (see section 6) and all information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore remains anonymous. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor, as all information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how our Site works.
5. Functionality cookies
These cookies allow our Site to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with news or updates relevant to the products you buy. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised.
6. Google Analytics
7. Personalisation cookies
This Site uses personalisation cookies which help us to advertise to you jobs that we think may be of interest. These cookies are persistent (see section 2 above) and this means that when you log in or return to the Site you may see advertising for jobs that are similar to jobs that you have previously browsed.
For information on how to reject these personalisation cookies, see section 8 below.
8. How to reject cookies
Note that most web browsers will accept cookies, but if you would rather that we did not collect data in this way you can choose to accept all or some or reject cookies in your browser’s privacy settings. Rejecting all cookies means that certain features cannot then be provided to you and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of our Site’s features. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
