Our CV Wizard

Our CV Wizard is an optional tool for you to create and maintain CV documents.  You can submit the personal information that you want, in order to build a CV.

This may include typical CV information, such as:

  • Email address

The system uses your personal information solely in the capacity of allowing you to create CVs and you may create and delete both a) specific pieces of CV information and b) whole CVs themselves.

Whilst the system stores this information to enable your use of the tool, we do not have direct or administrative access to your CVs nor the component information that makes them up.  We also do not currently report on any component CV data, and simply record whether a user has a CV builder account and whether or not they have made a CV. 

If we explore features in the future that change these facts, they will be presented here and within the CV Wizard itself, along with the appropriate consent decision for the user.  Any component CV data that might be reported on in the future would be anonymised and any features that allowed you to share your CV with employer users of this site (for example) would be explicitly stated within the tool with consent options.  None of the potential features / uses of data in this paragraph are currently in place. 

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure, and have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure information collected online.

  • automatically anonymising component data from your CVs if we need it for reporting purposes.  We would state this in the tool itself, if it became the case.  (This type of reporting is not currently present)
