What is GDPR? How are JP Trett prepared?

GDPR is the biggest change to data protection laws in decades. From 25th May 2018, the way businesses collect and use data will change and you will have far more control over how and when your personal information is used. This will mean the way recruitment businesses operate, the way candidates search for new roles and clients interact with recruiters is about to change massively. You can review the full details here at the ICO website

In the meantime, and as you would expect from the leading recruiter to the Agricultural Industry we are already ahead in our preparations for the GDPR, see our latest privacy statement below:
