Terms & Conditions

Effective date 15 Oct 2020.

Prof. Consultancy Group Pty Ltd, and its subsidiaries and affiliates (“PCG”, “us” or “we”), understand that your privacy is important to you. Prof. Consulting Group may process your personal data in our capacity as data controllers. We are committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your personal data, which is any information that is capable of identifying you as an individual person. This Recruitment Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”) describes how we handle and protect your personal data in connection with Prof. Consulting Group’s recruiting processes and programs.

This Privacy Notice only applies to the personal data of job applicants, potential candidates for employment or partnership, and our optional recruiting programs and events. Prof. Consulting Group may also collect and process your personal data should we engage in due diligence related to a potential corporate acquisition of your current employer (e.g., if you are part of the senior leadership team of a target company). This Privacy Notice does not apply to our employees, contractors or clients, or other personal data that Prof. Consulting Group collects for other purposes.

As used in this Privacy Notice, “personal data” means information that identifies job applicants and potential candidates for employment with us, either submitted as part of the online application and/or through alternative channels (e.g. via professional recruiting firms).

We will process your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Notice, unless such processing conflicts with the requirements of applicable law, in which case, applicable law will prevail.

By submitting your personal data to us, you acknowledge that:

Personal data we collect

The types of personal data that we request from you and the ways that we process it are determined by the requirements of the country in which the position is located, and not the country in which you reside. Should you apply to more than one location or should the role to which you apply be available in more than one country, the types of personal data we request from you and the ways that we process it are determined by the requirements of all the countries in which the position is located.

We usually collect personal data directly from you when you apply for a role with us, such as your name, address, contact information, photographs and videos, work and educational history, achievements, and test results. We collect similar personal data about you from third parties, such as professional recruiting firms, your references, prior employers, Prof. Consulting Group employees with whom you have interviewed, and employment background check providers, to the extent this is permitted by applicable law. We may also collect personal data about you online to the extent that you have made this information publicly available. For example, we may find your profile on professional social media websites (such as LinkedIn) and contact you about suitable roles.

Sensitive personal data is a subset of personal data and includes ethnicity, health, trade union membership, philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation, as well as other categories as prescribed by law. We do not seek to obtain and will not collect such data about a candidate unless permitted to do so by applicable laws.

Use of your personal data

We may also analyse your personal data or aggregated/pseudonymised data to improve our recruitment and hiring process and augment our ability to attract successful candidates.

The legal basis by which we process your personal data

Our processing of your personal data for the purposes mentioned above is based:

Data recipients and international data transfers

Your personal data may be accessed by recruiters and interviewers working in the country where the position for which you are applying is based, as well as by recruiters and interviewers working in different countries within the Prof. Consulting Group. Individuals performing administrative functions and IT personnel within Prof. Consulting Group may also have a limited access to your personal data to perform their jobs. In some countries, you may have fewer rights under local law than you do in your country of residence, but we have put in place legal mechanisms designed to ensure adequate data protection of your personal data that is processed by Prof. Consulting Group subsidiaries and affiliates, including the transfer of your personal data to countries other than the one in which you reside.

We use third party service providers to provide a recruiting software system. We also share your personal data with other third-party service providers that may assist us in recruiting talent, administering and evaluating pre-employment screening and testing, and improving our recruiting practices.

We maintain processes designed to ensure that any processing of personal data by third party service providers is consistent with this Privacy Notice and protects the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your personal data. Where required by law, we put in place legal mechanisms designed to ensure adequate data protection of your personal data in a third country. If you would like more information about these legal mechanisms, which may include the EU’s Standard Contractual Clauses, please contact us at the address provided at the end of this Privacy Notice.

In addition, we may disclose or transfer your personal data in the event of a re-organization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, or other transfer or disposition of all or any portion of our business.

Automated sorting of applicants

In certain jurisdictions, we may use data analytics and algorithms to help us to review the large quantities of candidate and application data that we receive. These algorithms help us prioritize the application review process and sort candidates on the basis of characteristics which suggest strengths and capabilities necessary to perform the relevant role. The algorithms are designed to analyse the candidate’s application data and compare it to our historical data on previously successful and unsuccessful candidates.

The automated results are always considered in tandem with, and not in lieu of, human judgement and evaluation of individual candidates.

Data retention

If you accept an offer of employment by us, any relevant personal data collected during your pre-employment period will become part of your personnel records and will be retained in accordance with specific country requirements. If we do not employ you, we may nevertheless continue to retain and use your personal data for a period of time (which may vary depending on the country) for system administration purposes, to consider you for potential future roles, and to perform research. Thereafter, we retain a minimal amount of your personal data to record your recruiting activity with us to enable us to understand whether you have previously applied for a role (or roles) at Prof. Consulting Group.

We may want to remain in contact with you and consider you for future employment opportunities. In such an event, we will seek your consent to join one of our recruiting programs that provides you ways to further learn about Prof. Consulting Group, either prior to or after you formally apply for a job opportunity. These recruiting programs are entirely optional.

If you join a recruiting program, we retain your personal data for a period of time specific to that program, but if you wish to withdraw at any time, please contact us at hello@profcg.comwith the subject title detailed Keep In Touch

Security

We have implemented generally accepted standards of technical and operational security to protect personal data from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorized personnel of Prof. Consulting Group and of our third-party service providers are provided access to personal data, and these employees and third-party service providers are required to treat this information as confidential. Despite these precautions, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your personal data.

Your rights

We take reasonable steps that are designed to keep your personal data accurate, complete, and up to date for the purposes for which it is collected and used. We also have implemented measures that are designed to ensure that our processing of your personal data complies with this Privacy Notice and applicable law.

We reserve the right to charge an appropriate fee for complying with your request where allowed by applicable law, and/or to deny your requests where, in the Firm’s discretion, they may be unfounded, excessive, or otherwise unacceptable under applicable law.
