GDPR Update for Jobseekers

JobAlert.ie have made to our website to inform you on how we collect and manage your data. Our privacy policy has been reviewed and updated in line with the requirements that have been introduced under the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Please read our up to date privacy policy here.

How we control your personal data on our website

After you apply for a job on jobalert.ie, your application will be stored in the employers account in the backend of our website. Rest assured, it will never be shared with another employer or recruiter.

All applications on our website are removed 24 months after the job you applied for has expired. It will then be completely deleted from our website after that time.

How we communicate with you using your personal data

Sending jobs by email

Once you sign up with JobAlert.ie, from time to time we will send you relevant jobs through email. This will either be through Job Alerts, which must be set up in your jobseekers dashboard where you select specific search criteria. Job Alerts can be turned off at any time through your account.

The other way is through the profile you have created on JobAlert.ie, we will send you jobs that we think you will be interested in based on your previous search history along with your location. All of our emails will include the option to opt out at any time if you wish to stop receiving job notifications via email.

Other emails & services

Once you are registered with jobalert.ie, from time to time we will email you details about similar products and services that will help you in your job search. Examples could include CV assistance resources or upcoming job events. Once again you will have the option to opt out of these emails at any time.
