Collection and Use of Personal Data 

Purpose of processing and legal basis

Long-term Teachers (LTT) will collect your personal data (which may include sensitive personal data) and will process your personal data for the purposes of providing you with work-finding services. This includes for example, contacting you about job opportunities, assessing your suitability for those opportunities, updating our databases, putting you forward for job opportunities, arranging payments to you and developing and managing our services and relationship with you and our clients.


In some cases we may be required to use your data for the purpose of investigating, reporting and detecting crime and also to comply with laws that apply to us. We may also use your information during the course of internal audits to demonstrate our compliance with certain industry standards.

The legal bases we rely upon to offer these services to you are:

  • Consent

  • Legitimate interest

  • Legal obligation

  • Contractual  obligation


Legitimate interest

Where the Company has relied on a legitimate interest to process your personal data our legitimate interest is that we provide work-finding services, and you are seeking work.


Recipient/s of data

The Company will process your personal data and/ or sensitive personal data with the Company’s clients and payroll/ umbrella companies that you wish to work for.


Statutory/contractual requirement

Your personal data is required by law and/or a contractual requirement (e.g. our client may require this personal data), and/or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.

You are obliged to provide the personal data and if you do not the consequences of failure to provide the data are:

  • LTT would no longer be able to engage in work finding services

Data retention

The Company will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary. Different laws require us to keep different data for different periods of time.


The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003, require us to keep work-seeker records for at least one year from after the date on which we last provide you with work-finding services. We must also keep your payroll records, holiday pay, sick pay and pensions auto-enrolment records for as long as is legally required by HMRC and associated national minimum wage, social security and tax legislation.


Where the Company has obtained your consent to process your personal data/sensitive personal data, we will do so in line with our retention policy.


Upon expiry of that period the Company will seek further consent from you. Where consent is not granted the Company will cease to process your personal data and sensitive personal data.
