Your privacy is paramount to us at Beam Recruit. We will collect your data from time to time but will always protect your privacy in line with GDPR requirements and regulations.

As a recruitment agency, we will store your personal data including name, address, CV, salary, reference contact details, passport, visas, NI number, CRB check results and possibly financial or medical data.

This information allows us to operate effectively as a recruitment firm and provide you with the best possible service.

This information may be shared with other trusted organisations who assist us in providing you with a top-quality service such as insurance company, pension providers, potential employers, legal firms, email marketing software and government organisations such as HMRC. No information will be shared for any other reason or any marketing purposes.

We store your information securely on our database which is password protected.

This notice covers your use of our website where cookies are used to analyse how our visitors use our website, inform our users of relevant opportunities and contact you with relevant information.

A cookie (sometimes called web cookie or browser cookie) is a file stored in a user’s web browser with small pieces of data, that stores preferences and frequency of using certain web pages while that user is browsing a website.

You can refuse cookies on your first visit to our website.

We will never keep your data for longer than necessary, following GDPR regulation.

You can – at any time – ask to obtain a copy of information we hold about you by contacting us directly.

If you wish for us to stop processing your data, please contact us in writing.

To opt-out of marketing contact, please use the contact form on our website.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
