Please read this information before completing this form.
We are committed to protecting your privacy and maintaining confidentiality, and also to using the information you have provided to help match you to suitable job opportunities.
Important information about your personal details:
Sometimes we need to talk to people such as previous employers, job referees, referring agencies and training organisations to help us build a picture of your skills and abilities. We will always get your permission before contacting anyone for this purpose.
We may also need to talk to potential employers when looking for suitable work for you. Again, we will get your permission first.
The work we do to try to find you suitable employment is generally paid for by another organisation such as the Ministry of Social Development (MSD), ACC or an insurance company. They require us to provide them with information about the services we have provided to you and to notify them if you are employed through our employment service.
They may contact you to confirm you have received services from us.
We sometimes use independent companies to undertake customer surveys on our behalf.
You may be contacted by one of these companies and invited to take part in a survey about the quality of our services. Of course you don’t have to participate, and you can opt out of future contact
Your personal information is stored by Workbridge at our National Office and at the Workbridge centre where you enrolled. We have comprehensive security arrangements in place that protect against loss or misuse of your personal information.
