Our use of cookies

We want you to understand the different types of cookies that are used on our website. These may be set by us, or by third parties who provide functionality embedded in or connected to our website. We use a variety of types of cookies for the following purposes:

  • Strictly necessary (essential) cookies: these are cookies strictly necessary for the performance of our website, for example, cookies that enable website content to be delivered securely and efficiently. Without these cookies, the website may fail to operate properly.
  • Functionality cookies: these cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region, or your login details, if you choose this).
  • Performance cookies: these cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. These cookies do not seek to identify a particular visitor and the analysis is done at an aggregate and therefore anonymous level.
  • Targeting & advertising cookies (including ad measurement): These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. These cookies are usually placed by trusted third parties (such as advertising networks) who we have a relationship with. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. These third parties combine data that we share with them with data from other sources, such as their own websites. This combined data can then be used to ensure that we can better target our visitors with advertisements for roles on our website that are more relevant to you and others. For more information, visit Please note that by opting out of receiving targeted advertisements on one browser, device or app will not necessarily opt you out of all such adverts from all browsers, devices or apps.
