What do you do with my personal data?

How does the application process work?

  • When you apply for a role all applications go directly to the recruiting company. We do not filter or shortlist applications. We encourage companies to get back to you regarding your application within two weeks of the closing date.

If I apply for a role, will the company have access to the ‘my details’ information I have provided to Dynamic Boards? For example, my age.

  • No. We don’t provide any of your information directly to companies, recruiters or any other third parties. 
  • If the company has paid for their role to be posted then we may provide them with a summary of aggregated data on who has applied. They will see, for example, how many applications they received from people in each age bracket. 

How do you make money?
