- 2. Why do we process your personal data?
We may process your personal data for the following purposes:
Our recruitment website (https://careers.edenmccallum.com/) is powered by Teamtailor on behalf of Eden McCallum.
If you apply for a job at Eden McCallum, we use your personal data to process your application and evaluate whether you are the right candidate for the position. If you are considered for a position at Eden McCallum, your personal data will be used to facilitate the hiring process.
For some positions, an assessment is part of the application procedure to evaluate your suitability. In that case, you will be informed about this.
Maintaining high professional standards is an integral part of our business and is a core component of building trust and long term relationships with clients. Clients will only entrust sensitive information to Eden McCallum if we can deploy reliable personnel. Eden McCallum may, therefore, require you to provide reference and conduct a social media and internet screening as part of the application procedure. You will be informed about this.
You can subscribe to job alert on our careers website. We use your personal data to send you relevant vacancies.
You can contact us through the chat. We use your personal data to properly handle your question or request.
Eden McCallum regularly organizes various events, such as workshops, mentorship programmes and other events. You can register for these events. We will use your personal data to provide you with information about the event and administer your attendance. For example, to provide you with information about the time and place, to send you a reminder, to notify you if the event is cancelled and to send you a copy of the presentation after the events.
Photos and videos may be taken at our events for registration purposes and/or future marketing materials. It is, therefore, possible that you will be captured on photos and videos that will be used by us for publication after the event.
Promoting diversity and equality
Eden McCallum is committed to advancing equality, diversity and inclusion (“ED&I”) within our firm and across the organisations and people with which or whom we interact. To understand the diversity characteristics of our applicants, and to better inform any decisions we make about the promotion of ED&I in the workplace, Eden McCallum may send you an invitation to take part in an ED&I survey. The survey collects information from applicants in the United Kingdom (“UK”) on a voluntary basis and covers demographic questions. The survey reports we will receive are presented in anonymized, aggregated, statistical fashion.

In some cases, we may use your personal data to comply with applicable laws and regulations, such as legally mandated reporting or other legal process requests. We may also use your personal data in the performance and organization of our business and internal management, for example to conduct audits and investigations, for mergers and acquisitions, finance and accounting, archiving and insurance purposes and in the context of dispute resolution.
