What Is The GDPR And How Does It Affect My Business?

The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is an EU law that controls how organisations collect, use and store the personal data of European Economic Area (EEA) citizens and the rights those citizens have with respect to their personal data. 

Whatever the size of your recruitment organisation, if you are based in the EEA, or based outside of the EEA and working with the personal data of customers, applicants, candidates or staff from this region, then you must comply with the GDPR. 

  • With personal data at the heart of the recruitment industry, you will be in the spotlight with regards to the GDPR.

  • It is easy for disgruntled former employees, customers, applicants or candidates to report you to the UK data protection regulator, the ICO, if you are not complying with the GDPR.


  • The maximum fine for non compliance with the GDPR is €20 million or 4% of global turnover, whichever is greater.

  • The ICO is starting to get tough on GDPR non-compliance, having recently issued GDPR fines to British Airways and Marriot totalling £300 million. 

  • The UK government have confirmed that the requirement for GDPR compliance will not change if the UK leaves the European Union with or without a deal.

  • Ensuring that your staff are fully aware of, and trained in the GDPR, is a key requirement of the regulation. 

This training will fulfil that requirement and give you piece of mind that you are taking a key step towards GDPR compliance.
