GDPR and Executive Search

What our clients say

“As soon as I learned of GatedTalent, I knew it would be a tool that would add immediate value! With pre-written, compliant templates, I was ready to send and track batches of consent requests and legitimate interest privacy notes to people in our database within a couple of hours. GatedTalent has allowed me to manage the legitimising of my data without even leaving our FileFinder Anywhere CRM. It has made becoming GDPR-compliant infinitely easier, and is a massive time saver!”

Our tight integration allows FileFinder users to search the platform, manage compliancy (with full support for the GDPR concepts of “Consent” and “Legitimate Interest”) and receive executive updates in an entirely seamless manner.
