The Privacy Laws & Business Recruitment Service has been running since 1997 with an unrivalled success rate.

“They seemed to have access to some of the best data protection candidates in the UK. They helped us find suitable candidates for two positions – the hardest part for us was deciding which candidates to choose. I would not hesitate to use their Recruitment Service again. Their help and advice throughout the whole process was at all times professional, friendly and well-informed.”


“They were extremely professional in dealing with my application and negotiating a suitable package on my behalf. I have since recruited high quality candidates from Privacy Laws & Business and would not hesitate to recommend their recruitment service.”


“Working within a multinational organisation we have to be sure that when we recruit new staff they are conversant not only in the complexities of Data Protection but have an understanding of the wider global privacy implications. As time is precious it was advantageous to call on Privacy Laws & Business to identify potential candidates that best matched our requirements, we have used the more traditional recruitment consultants previously only to find that the candidates that they provided did not meet our need to hire specialist Data Protection professionals.”
