Possible recruitment data breach information

We have temporarily suspended our online job application system due to a security breach reported by PageUp, a third party supplier that provides the software which we use for recruitment. PageUp has provided further details of the breach today (12 June) and confirmed it is likely that some personal details from job applicants and their referees may have been compromised. We recommend that people who have applied for a role with Mitchell since 1 July 2017 check that there has been no unusual activity regarding their personal information. We are in the process of notifying affected applicants and referees. For more information about the breach, FAQs from PageUp and for details of steps you can take to protect your personal details, please click here.
