This policy applies to the group of companies that are ultimately owned by Robert Walters plc (company no. 03956083) of 11 Slingsby Place, St Martin's Courtyard, London, WC2E 9AB, United Kingdom, trading under the Robert Walters, Resource Solutions and Walters People brands (collectively referred to as the “Robert Walters Group”).

References in this policy to “we”, “us” or “our” are references to the Robert Walters Group. 

What We Do

The Robert Walters Group provides: 

  • recruitment consultancy services placing candidates on a permanent, contract and interim basis across a range of industries and geographies under the Robert Walters and Walters People brands (“Recruitment Services”); 

  • business process outsourcing services assisting companies with their permanent recruitment, temporary recruitment, supply chain and labour supply and screening (commonly known as “RPO”, “MSP” and “Service Procurement Desk Services” which for the purpose of this policy are collectively referred to as “Outsourced Services”);

  • other consultancy, technology and advisory services (“Consultancy Services”). 

We operate through a global network of affiliated entities and utilise vendors where needed, to ensure we provide the best solutions to our clients across the countries where we perform services.   

  • Unless we notify you otherwise, we operate as a data controller when processing your personal data for our Recruitment Services and Consultancy Services. If we share your personal data with our clients as part of our Recruitment Services or Consultancy Services, it is likely that our clients will process your personal data as a data controller. Our clients may request additional personal data from you as part of their hiring processes.  

  • Unless we notify you otherwise, we are the data processor and our clients are the data controllers of your personal data processed by us for our Outsourced Services. Where we act as a data processor, the privacy policy of our client will apply. Unless we notify you otherwise, if a company within the Robert Walters Group engages you on a temporary assignment, the Robert Walters Group company who engages you will be the data controller of your personal data.  

If you are uncertain about who the data controller of your personal data is, please contact us using our contact information set out in section 13 of this policy.

The purpose of this Global Privacy Policy (“policy”) is for us to inform you how we collect, use and disclose your personal data. It is important that you read this policy in conjunction with any notices or statements relating to data, data protection, fair processing and/or privacy that we may issue at the time of collecting your personal data where applicable in the jurisdiction. They are not intended to override the policy unless stated otherwise by us in such policy, notice or statement.

5. Legal grounds

In certain countries our companies that act as a data controller are required to establish legal grounds as set forth by applicable law to process your personal data. Depending on our relationship with you, if required to do so, we will rely on one or more of the following legal grounds:

Legal Ground Permitted Purpose 



Where you have given us consent to use your personal data for one or more permitted purposes. 



For example:

  • when you create a website account with us; 

  • when we are required by law to collect your explicit consent to process your personal data; and 

  • where you otherwise provide us with your consent. 




Where we need to process your personal data to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation. 



For example: 

  • to perform background checks in accordance with our legal obligations;

  • to comply with our legal and regulatory requirements in relation to taxation and financial compliance;

  • for equal opportunities monitoring and reporting purposes;

  • to co-operate with our regulators and other public authorities; 

  • to comply with any other obligation to which we are subject under applicable rules and law.  

Where we need to process your personal data to perform the contract, we are able to enter or have entered into with you.



For example:

  • to employ/engage you if you are applying for a vacancy with us; and

  • to enter into or perform our agreement with you if you are a supplier or external adviser. 



Where the processing of your personal data is necessary for the pursuit of our legitimate business interests and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.



For example: 

  • to offer and provide our recruitment services to you and to assess your skills against our vacancies with our clients;

  • to provide you with marketing material to aid your job search; 

  • to manage complaints and legal claims; 

  • to conduct appropriate background checks if you are to be employed/engaged by us; 

  • sharing your personal data with the companies that form the Robert Walters Group; 

  • sharing your personal data with our third party services providers; and 

  • sharing your personal data with potential employers and other clients (including our MSP clients) of ours who can offer job opportunities within their organisations. 

If you would like to know what legal grounds we rely upon to process your personal data, please contact us using our contact details in section 13 of this policy.

6. Retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. We view our relationship with you as being one which is to support your career through numerous roles and assignments. Accordingly, we may retain your data for a period of time which is materially greater than simply one placement if we reasonably believe that we will continue to have an ongoing relationship with you.  

We will appropriately and securely dispose of your personal data when it is no longer required.  To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we will consider the following factors:

  • amount and nature of the personal data;
  • its sensitivity;
  • the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of the personal data;
  • the purposes for which we handle your personal data;
  • whether we can achieve those purposes through other means; and
  • applicable legal requirements.

When we act as a data processor to our clients, the data controllers, we will retain your personal data in accordance with the retention periods prescribed by our clients.

Where permitted by law, you may be charged a fee to access your personal data or to exercise any other right that may apply. We will let you know if a fee applies to your request before we complete it.

We may also request certain information to help us confirm your identity, ensure your right to exercise any of rights in the table above and to prevent your personal data being disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. 

We will respond to all legitimate requests within any legal timeframes.

8. Technology

  • locks and security systems;
  • encryption
  • usernames and passwords;
  • virus checking;
  • auditing procedures and regular data integrity checks; and

We limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They must only process your personal data on our instructions and subject to the access controls listed above. They are also subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have agreed on security-related measures with the third parties we share your personal data with to ensure that it is treated by those third parties in a way that is consistent with how we safeguard your personal data.

We have also put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable supervisory authority where we are legally required to do so.
