Job Application Service

In order to apply for jobs, receive job alert emails or to save job searches or shortlists, you will be required to register or become a member. The Data you provide at registration, as well as the saved job searches and job alert emails you create, may be used to provide you with information about other relevant jobs and services, and by Redactive for aggregated statistical analysis.

When you apply for jobs through Jobs in Psychology, you will be required to provide relevant Data, your CV and an optional covering letter or message (Job Application). Your Job Application is forwarded directly to the advertiser of the job that you are applying for (Recruiters), and will also be held on our systems for as long as reasonably necessary i.e. in the event that a submission has failed and it needs to be resent to the Recruiter. Recruiters may include agencies who may pass your information to companies that are recruiting in employment field(s) relevant to your interests. We ask all Recruiters to use the information you provide only for the purposes of recruitment, to hold the information securely and for no longer than reasonably necessary. However, we are not able to control the use and storage of your information by Recruiters.

If the Recruiter of any jobs you apply for is based outside EEA this will involve a transfer of your Data outside EEA. You should not apply to these advertisements unless you consent to this transfer. Applications that are made through Recruiters’ or other external websites will be processed by those 3rd parties, and therefore your information will be subject to their privacy policies.

Jobs in Psychology provide the option for you to create a personal Job seeker Profile, and to control access to it through various settings. The information on the Profile Database will include anything that you provide in the relevant information fields.

Jobs in Psychology also offers a the ability to certain recruiters listed on Jobs in Psychology (‘Authorised Recruiters’) to search the Profile Database for profile information that meets their search criteria. Whether your profile is included in the searchable Profile Database will depend on your chosen settings.

If you choose to allow Authorised Recruiters to view your CV (by checking “Yes” in settings).  the personal description you provide in ‘Your Profile’ will be fully visible on the web to all Authorised Recruiters who will also be able to access and download your profile information and full contact details.  You can choose to prevent any or certain Authorised Recruiters from accessing your CV or profile information at any time (by checking “No” in your settings). Please note that the database of Authorised Recruiters is regularly updated and it is your responsibility to regularly review it and update your preferences accordingly.

If you choose not to allow certain Authorised Recruiters to see your CV, it will not be visible to those Authorised Recruiters or matched in search results.

We request Recruiters not to hold your information for longer than necessary and not to use your information for purposes other than recruitment. However we are not able to control the storage of your CV or profile information by Recruiters.
