Recruitment Privacy Notice

As part of any recruitment process, fabrik Limited collects and processes personal data relating to job applicants. We are committed to being transparent about how it collects and uses that data and to meeting its data protection obligations. We will collect a range of information about you, including:

  • Your name, address and contact details, including email address and telephone number
  • Details of your qualifications, skills, experience and employment history
  • Information about your current level of remuneration, including benefit entitlements
  • Whether or not you have a disability for which the organisation needs to make reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process
  • Information about your entitlement to work in the UK.

We collect this information in a variety of ways.  For example, data may be contained in CVs, cover letters or portfolios submitted, or obtained from your passport or other identity documents, or collected through interviews or other forms of assessment. We may well seek references from third parties, former employers, criminal record checks if needed for specific project work once we have made you a job offer.

Your Rights

  • Ask the organisation to change incorrect or incomplete data

  • Object to the processing of your data where the organisation is relying on its legitimate interests as the legal ground for processing
  • Access and obtain a copy of your data on request
  • Ask the organisation to stop processing data for a period if data is inaccurate or there is a dispute about whether or not your interests override the organisation’s legitimate grounds for processing data.

If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please email
