GDPR and COS Recruitment

If you have been placed in a temporary or permanent role through COS Recruitment within the last 12 months

In order to provide you with the services of employment agreed to when you registered with us, we need to hold your data on our internal system. When you are place in an assignment, we share the following data with the designated payroll company:

  • Your name

The payroll company will then contact you to obtain your payment information.

This is to enable us to deal with any civil action that may be raised, as well as giving us the ability to provide any requested employment reference.
