You agree that we can use your personal information, including information in your CV or other details of your experience or qualifications, as described below. Please do not provide this information to us if you do not consent to such use or potential disclosure of your personal information.

Use of your personal information

Petrofac is committed to the online privacy of all its users. This policy statement is designed to give a clear explanation of Petrofac’s data processing practices. For your protection, we are registered under the Data Protection Act 1998 and have given all appropriate notifications to the Information Commissioner.

We may use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • to provide information requested by you, or to record or respond to feedback you provide on our website
  • to consider your suitability for employment, both for a specific post or role you are applying for or for other positions we think you may be suitable for (this may include sending your personal information to our offices and subsidiaries worldwide)
  • to contact you regarding your application, for example to inform you of the progress of your application or request further information
  • to administer this website and help us improve our services, including statistical analysis

We may share non-personal aggregate statistics (group) data about our site visitors’ traffic patterns with partners or other parties. However, we do not sell any information about individual users.

Disclosure of information

In order to consider your application or provide you with the information which you have requested, your personal information may be transferred or shared with our Group companies and offices, and other professionals or third parties who act for or with us. Details of our offices can be found on this website.

We may share, transfer or disclose the information in our databases and server logs to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect the security or integrity of our databases or this website, to take precautions against legal liability, or in the event of a joint venture or collaboration, financing, sale, merger, corporate reorganisation, dissolution or similar event.

We may also release personal information to regulatory or law enforcement agencies, if they require us to do so. We may also disclose your information where we are permitted and requested to do so by law.

If we or our business merges with, or is acquired by, another business or company (or is considering either of these possibilities) we may share your personal information with the prospective owners of the business or company and their advisors. If a merger or acquisition actually happens, you should receive notice of this.

It is possible that your personal information may be transferred to recipients outside the European Economic Area to countries which do not have any or equivalent data protection laws to those of the United Kingdom and you consent to us doing so. Where appropriate, before disclosing personal information to a third party, we require the third party contractually to take adequate precautions to protect that personal data and to comply with applicable law.

Equal opportunities monitoring

We are an equal opportunities employer and are also committed to diversity. All job applicants and members of staff will receive equal treatment and we will not discriminate on grounds of gender, marital status, race, colour, ethnic origin, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief or age.

As part of our commitment to equal opportunities and diversity we may from time to time use information provided by you for the purposes of diversity monitoring. All such information will be used on an anonymised basis and will play no part in the recruitment process.

Your rights

Petrofac is required to comply with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998. This provides amongst other things that the data we hold about you should be processed lawfully and fairly. It should be accurate, relevant and not excessive. The information should be kept up to date, where necessary, and not retained for longer than is necessary. It should be kept securely to prevent unauthorised access by other people. You have the right to see what is held about you and for any inaccuracies to be corrected by contacting the Corporate Communications department directly. We may charge a small fee for this (up to £10).
