Data Protection & Policies

Data Protection

Alderwick Consulting follows the principles laid out in the Data Protection Act 1998 which require that personal data are:

  • fairly and lawfully processed;
  • processed for limited purposes;
  • adequate, relevant and not excessive;
  • accurate;
  • not kept longer than necessary;
  • processed in accordance with individuals' rights;
  • kept secure;
  • not transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area without adequate protection.

Travel and Environment

Alderwick Consulting look carefully at whether travel is necessary, whilst ensuring we are able to assess a candidate effectively. Through our global network we can use video conferencing rather than meeting all candidates face-to-face. Our process is to conduct an initial telephone screening to ensure there are no obvious barriers before committing to travelling to meet people in order to mitigate any unnecessary travel and cost.

Cultural Diversity

In handling assignments Alderwick Consulting develops strategies to ensure we are attracting the widest range of potential candidates. We work closely with our clients to ensure that we are providing the widest possible cultural diversity within any shortlist. We make efforts to look not only in the most obvious areas, but come up with strategies to identify candidates with different backgrounds and experiences to ensure we are providing the most culturally diverse candidates.


Alderwick Consulting treat all information with the utmost integrity and as confidential unless we are advised that it is in the public domain. We are happy to sign confidentiality agreements confirming that the information will be used exclusively for the purpose of a particular project, will be appropriately restricted and confirming that all reasonable precautions will be taken to ensure that it is not used contrary to the terms of the hiring agreement.

For candidates, all information supplied to Alderwick Consulting is treated as confidential and will only be passed on to a third party with their express permission.

Out of Date Data

We make every effort to update candidate records and will not use any data without having checked with the individual that it is current and up-to-date.

Conflicts of Interest

Alderwick Consulting are careful about the clients we decide to work with to try and ensure that we do not have problems with conflicts of interest and also are able to source the widest possible range of candidates. However, potential situations may occasionally occur, in which case they would be raised immediately with the client before deciding if we can undertake a particular piece of work.


In situations where we are no longer retained by a client, the client will be treated as being off-limits to us for a period of two years.

By deliberately restricting our client base in each sector, we are able to search the market thoroughly on behalf of our clients, keeping off-limits issues to a minimum.
