About our cookies

Cookies on Group GTI websites

Like many other websites, our websites use cookies in order to give you the best user experience possible. We aim to keep cookie usage to a minimum but without some cookies our websites just don't work.

Below we explain briefly what cookies are and how we use them on our websites. There is also some basic guidance on how you can handle cookies.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small data file that is sent from a website's server to the browser on your computer or mobile device. It is then stored on your device. Cookies normally contain a unique identifier, the name of the website serving the cookie, and some digits or characters. These files enable a website browser to remember things like your preference settings in order to improve your user experience.

Types of cookie


First-party cookies are set by the website you are visiting and can only be read by that site.


Third-party cookies are set by a different website to the owner of the website you are visiting. Examples can be analytics tracking software, advertisement serving, social network sharing tools, etc.

Session cookies

These cookies are active only during your browsing session on a website. When you end your session (close your browser) these cookies are removed from your device.

Persistent cookies

Persistent cookies are saved on your device for a set amount of time. These cookies are used where a website needs to remember your settings for more than one session.

More details on cookies can be found at All About Cookies

How we use cookies

On our websites we use cookies for a number of purposes.

Site performance

We use cookies to help you move around our sites easily and to improve site performance and functionality. For example:

  • where we have a mobile version of a website, we use cookies to detect what device you are using so that we can give you the best browsing option for your device.
  • where we provide an automatic login/keep me logged in option, cookies are used to remember your login details when you return to the site.
  • if you have told us that you are interested in particular subjects or types of information, and you are logged in, we use cookies to show you more of what you want to see.
  • cookies are used by the social network and sharing tools on our websites.

Analytics tracking

We use analytics tracking software (Google Analytics) to collect data on how our websites are being used (for example, visits, number of new visitors, pages most visited, browsers and devices used). This data tracking is anonymous.


On our websites that carry advertising we, like many other websites, use a third party advertisement server to host and serve adverts. Cookies are used to control where and how frequently an advert is displayed.

Most of the advertisements appearing on our websites are generated by third parties. These may employ their own cookies to anonymously track the performance of an advert we don't have access to this information. The organisations that supply these adverts have their own privacy policies.

We do have relationships with carefully-selected and monitored suppliers who may also set cookies during your visit to be used for remarketing purposes - in other words to show you different employers or careers related products and services based on what you appear to be interested in. If you'd like to opt out, please go to the Network Advertising Initiative website (opens in a new window - please note that we're not responsible for the content of external websites).

Setting your cookie preferences

You can choose how cookies are handled by your computer or mobile device via your browser's settings.

The most popular browsers (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari) give you different cookie handling options. You can accept all cookies, set your browser to notify you when a cookie is issued, or set your browser to prevent all cookies. Use the help menu of your browser to find out how to change your cookie setting or visit the pages listed below.
