Website cookies

Like most websites, Create Job’s websites use cookies to collect information. Cookies are small data files which are placed on your computer or other devices (such as smart ‘phones or ‘tablets’) as you browse this website. They are used to ‘remember’ when your computer or device accesses our websites. Cookies are essential for the effective operation of our websites.

  3. To provide tracking of your activity on the website - see Google Analytics below. This cookie is not linked to any personal information about you and is used to provide generic statistical information about patterns of activity on our website.

Google Analytics

When someone visits we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Mailing Lists

As part of the sign-up process for our monthly e-newsletters, we collect the following information:

  • Email address: this is compulsory as we need this to be able to send the newsletter to you
  • First name and surname: this information isn’t compulsory, but it does allow us to keep any information we have about you up to date. All personal information is stored securely in and Salesforce (see ‘How we keep your details safe and secure’ below), and isn’t shared with any third parties unless specified (see ‘Third parties’ below)

We use a third-party provider,, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. are compliant with GDPR regulations, see their privacy notice for more information. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our Data Protection Lead, Jim Beck.

When you register to receive tailored job support, we collect more detailed information on things such as your employment status, right to work in the UK, ethnicity, age, qualifications and address. This is because many of our opportunities are only available to people fitting very specific criteria, e.g. people living in certain boroughs who are unemployed, so we need this information to be able to send you relevant opportunities.

We also ask for details of your work interests, and any disabilities you may have. This is to help us provide you with the best tailored advice and pastoral support possible. We also ask for your email address and phone number so our Engagement Officers can contact you with relevant opportunities and jobs.

Full terms and conditions can be found at the bottom of the registration form.

Social media

We use social media to broadcast messages and updates about events and news. On occasion we may reply to comments or questions you make to us on social media platforms. You may also see adverts from us on social media that are tailored to your interests.

Depending on your settings and the privacy policies used by social media and messaging services like Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter, we may receive non-personally identifying demographic or analytical information from these services that enables us to better understand the reach and effectiveness of our advertising.

Third parties

We may share anonymised personal information with other organisations, particularly Arts Council England, who use this to analyse our audience development programmes, ticket sales and self-generated funding to understand the impact of the public investment made in A New Direction.

Many of the events run by Create Jobs are presented in partnership with other companies. We will let them know about your booking and share your name and contact details with them, but they can’t contact you unless you have provided explicit consent when booking. We will not share sensitive information or any payment details.

How we keep your details safe and secure

We maintain this system to hold contact details and a record of your interactions with Create Jobs, such as attendance at events and meetings, memberships, queries, and complaints.

We always seek to hold your data securely. Access to customer information is strictly controlled and the CRM system can only be accessed by A New Direction staff members.
