Privacy Policy

Little Black Book Is an executive recruitment company, operating in the niche market of Creative, Marketing and Digital and we take the privacy of our clients and candidates very seriously.

 

How we receive information and how we may use it

Little Black Book receives your personal data when you apply directly for an advertised role via our website; when you apply directly to be a candidate for whom we can facilitate a job search or via a third party when you respond to a job post placed by Little Black Book on a job board on behalf of a third-party client.

This statement explains how we process personal data received into our organisation. When you register with Little Black Book you MUST consent to us collecting and storing your personal information. You will not be able to submit your enquiry or details to Little Black Book without consenting to us storing your personal data. This may include but is not restricted to your name; contact details; address; employment history; mobility and education.

During telephone conversations and face to face interviews we may collect personal information with regard to employment preferences, strengths and work experience which may be stored on your personal record. This information facilitates our ability to support your job search and to provide a basis for recommendation when short-listing candidates for a particular role. By explicitly providing consent when you register with Little Black Book you are providing permission for our storage of this information. Little Black Book will never share personal information or a Curriculum Vitae with a third party without your explicit consent.

Due to the nature of executive 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.

If you do not consent to Little Black Book storing your personal data or setting up a personal registration for you, please do not submit your Curriculum Vitae for any roles advertised on our website. We are unable to process your application without receipt of consent to process and store your personal information.

 

Job Alerts and Career Advice

We may on occasion contact candidates stored in our database who are not actively looking for a new role. When you contact Little Black Book you may 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 and, very occasionally, sending you career related information e.g. salary survey, interview advice etc.

If you do not wish to receive such information, please email - info@thelittleblackbookagency.com

 

Our Promise to our candidates

We will never share our candidates’ personal details or Curriculum Vitae with a third party without the candidate’s explicit consent, and then we will only share the personal information with that one company or individual.

 

Contacting Recruitment Consultants directly

If you contact one of our Recruitment Consultants directly and request they consult with you regarding your job search, or regarding a particular job role, you are giving your consent to Little Black Book processing your email and the data contained within your email for lawful purposes, as per points 1-3 above.

As referred to in point 3 of our privacy notice, we will not share your information with any third party without your explicit consent.

Request to have personal data removed or deleted

Where Little Black Book 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. Little Black Book will however take steps to ensure only minimal personal data is retained and we will not make further contact with the candidate, if requested.
Where Little Black Book 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 6 months.

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

What they say

Managing Director,
Code Computerlove

We find The Little Black Book great! They know the industry and work hard at knowing the people in it. They are professional, honest and efficient; they say when they can help you and don’t bullshit when they can’t. In my opinion, TLBBA sets a lead that I wish other recruiters would follow.

Traffic Manager, TBWAManchester

The Little Black Book listen to our requirements and tailor candidates really well to our needs. We’ve been working together for a good while and rate them as a safe pair of hands when it comes to sourcing last minute design & development needs. A competitive and friendly service for any agency.

Managing Director, Epiphany Solutions

“We have engaged The Little Black Book Agency for a number of roles, most recently for a Client Services Manager. Thanks to their efficiency and their understanding of our company and its needs, we found the whole recruitment process painless. We now have an excellent addition to our team, who is making a real difference.”
