This Privacy Notice tells you what to expect in relation to personal information about you which is collected, handled and processed by Fenchurch Law Limited.

Fenchurch Law Limited, whose registered office address is at 40 Lime Street, London, EC3M 7AW is the Data Controller.

As from 25th May 2018, most personal data processing in the UK is subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), as supplemented by UK legislation.

Personal data is any information that directly or indirectly identifies a living individual. We acknowledge and agree that any personal data of yours that we handle will be processed in accordance with all applicable data protection laws.

The information about you we may collect, hold and process is set out below, along with the legal basis we rely on in order to process such information:


Legal Basis

  • Email address
  • Telephone number
  • Full details of job offers and placements

The processing of this information is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests in being able to undertake the recruitment process and contact you during this period.

Subsequent to the recruitment process, and if you commence work with us, the processing of this information will be necessary for the performance of your employment contract.

  • Date of birth
  • National insurance number
  • Payroll details and terms

  • Pension scheme details
  • Court orders and statutory payments

The processing of this information is necessary for us to comply with our legal obligations.

  • CV/work history
  • Job preferences including role, geographical areas and salary
  • Any other work-related information you provide
  • References

The processing of this information is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests in assessing your suitability for any position and, where applicable, offering a suitable position to you.

  • A log of communications with you during the recruitment process by email and telephone

We process this information on the basis that it is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests in defending any legal claims made against us.

  • In certain cases, medical information

The basis for us processing this will depend on the circumstances, but will usually be one of the following: it is necessary to protect health and safety or to prevent discrimination on the grounds of disability, to assess your working capacity and/or where your explicit consent has been obtained, if required.

Consequences of failure to provide information

We ask you to provide the information listed above as it is a requirement necessary for you to be able to enter into an employment contract with us.

In circumstances where you do not provide us with the following information, we may be unable to pay you and any offer of employment may be withdrawn: your name, date of birth, address, HMRC data, bank account details and national insurance number.

Should you fail to provide a telephone number and email address, we will be unable to contact you via these methods throughout the recruitment process and we will be unable to contact you via a personal telephone number and email address during any period of employment with us.

Where you do not provide us with your passport, driving licence, visa or permit, any offer of employment may be withdrawn as we require proof of your right to work in the UK, in accordance with our legal obligations.

Failure to provide your CV/work history and references may result in our not being able to assess your suitability for any position with Fenchurch Law and therefore not offering you employment.

Where applicable, failure to provide us with details of any relevant court orders may mean that we are unaware of and therefore unable to comply with, the terms of any such order.

In certain cases, a failure to provide us with medical information may result in us not being able to make any reasonable adjustments that may be required in the event of disability, not being able to properly assess health and safety matters and not being able to pay you sick pay or assess your ability to work.
