4. You will then be invited to arrange a YINI telephone interview to discuss what kind of placement you are looking for

5. We will send your details out to companies that match your criteria and arrange company interviews for you

We will share your CV with companies for potential placements that match your requirements. You can withdraw from the scheme at any time by emailing

Your contact details will only be shared with a company and with your YINI Mentor once you have had a verbal offer of employment and verbally accepted. This is to enable the company to send you the formal offer letter and contract and for your mentor to contact you and provide support during your placement. In any other instance your specific permission will be requested.

We will hold your records for 6 years, providing you with a continued option to ‘opt out’ of further contact. After 6 years you will be asked to ‘opt in’ for further contact.
