How we use your information

We are always looking for the most talented people to join our team, but also for people who fit our studio culture.

The information you provide as part of your application, including information from any interviews, pre-selection processes and references that you provide (with the referees’ consent), will help us see if you are the right fit for the role.

We will use the e-mail address that you have provided to get in touch about your application.  If your application is successful, the data which you provide will be used to set up your personnel record at Creative Assembly, which will be subject to our staff privacy policy. We take security very seriously, which is why we use technical and organisational security measures to help safeguard your personal data.

Sharing your information
