GDPR for recruitment agencies

What does GDPR mean for recruitment agencies?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a new regulation by which the European Parliament intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). The new regulation comes into effect on 25th May 2018.


Contrary to what some articles are saying, GDPR does not mean wholesale changes to your recruitment agency’s model. In reality, if your recruitment agency is complying with the current Data Protection Act (DPA), the majority of your approach will assist you well under the new laws.
