Information you give us on payspective:

We use information to benchmark your compensation against peers, and to provide insights and reports based on aggregate data. You can see all the algorithms we use in the site below.

We reserve the right to collect, and analyse, further information and will update this privacy policy as and when we do.

We use anonymised information we collect from businesses to create aggregated benchmarks and insights which we share back to the businesses as well as with the general public (exclusively on an aggregated level). The information we collect from businesses is also used for benchmarks of individuals who use 

Information we collect about you

We will use this information on movemeon:

  • to provide and personalize, including with the help of automated systems and inferences we make, our services so that they can be more relevant and useful to you and others. For instance, we recommend to a candidate role(s) that could be of interest based on a combination of their profile details (such as location), recorded preferences and previously viewed jobs. We employ CV parsing techniques to be able to ensure we can provide candidates with more targeted opportunities. Similarly, we recommend to employers anonymised profiles of candidate(s) who could be a good fit, through algorithms that take into account attributes of the role as well as candidate profile information and preferences. Another example is auto-ranking applicants for a role bases on criteria provided by the employer (such as compensation, experience, location);

On all of our website(s):

  • to administer our site and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes;
  • to improve our site to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer;
  • to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so;
  • as part of our efforts to keep our site safe and secure;
  • to measure or understand the effectiveness of advertising we serve to you and others, and to deliver relevant advertising to you;
  • to make suggestions and recommendations to you and other users of our site about goods or services that may interest you or them.

The algorithms we use on movemeon and their lawful basis are as follows:

(1) Keeping candidate preferences up to date

The types of jobs you are looking for change over time (salary, location, industry etc.). For us easily to keep up to date with your changing preferences, we have an algorithm that tracks which jobs you look at. This algorithm uses these “job views” to add new preferences to your search (preferences we believe you are interested in).

(2) Matching candidates to jobs

We use an algorithm to match candidates to jobs, based on your preference set (the preferences you completed during registration plus any added based on your browsing history).

(3) Ordering candidate applications for employers

We help employers quickly to find the most relevant applications, by comparing your application information, location and previous consulting firm to those they’ve selected as preferred options. This algorithm also incorporates activity on the site (positively for interviews and job offers; negatively for a large numbers of rejected applications).

(4) Tracking public information

We track public information and compare this to any applications made on the site, to ensure we know of the key trends in the market and any hires that we haven’t been alerted to in line with our terms and conditions.

(5) CV Parsing and machine learning to match candidates and jobs (in development)

An algorithm is currently in development, for which we reserve the right to launch at any time, that will use CV parsing to get information from CVs. This information will then be used to help improve matching between candidates and jobs (candidates discovering jobs; helping employers identify best candidates post application).

The algorithms we use on payspective and their lawful basis are as follows:

(1) Algorithms used to benchmark you against your peers:

We will show you your rank, your percentile or your relation to the average for the numerical data you share with us (e.g. compensation, satisfaction). We will show you the following comparator sets or any combination of the following comparator sets (always on an aggregate level and without disclosing individual data). We reserve the right to show you additional comparator sets to the below:

  1. All respondents; (2) respondents working in the same country; (3) respondents working in your industry; (4) respondents working in your function; (5) respondents at a similar age as you; (6) respondents with similar seniority; (7) respondents working for comparable companies in terms of size; (8) respondents working in the same city as you; (9) respondents who studied at the same university or have a similar academic background; (10) respondents working at the same employer; (11) respondents with the same nationality

(2) Algorithms used to create aggregated insight reports:

The data will be aggregated and analysed as a whole (individual compensation or responses will never be shared).

We will analyse all information provided to highlight interesting insight (for example Gender pay gaps by industry; salary progression in industry; compensation breakdown by industry etc.)

We reserve the right to do further analysis and custom reports on any information we collect but will always ensure it is anonymised and aggregated.

Information we receive from other sources
