About your CV

Zenith processes the personal information you provide in your CV in connection with a specific job opportunity.

We will in any case request relevant additional details from you if and when these are required. Please note that we do not request sensitive details such as bank details or passport information by email.

You may also choose to provide references on request from us, rather than including these in your CV.

The details you provide (including your CV) will be used in considering your suitability for employment in the specific role for which you applied.
