  • You, the candidate.
  • Your named referees, after your explicit consent, from whom we collect the following categories of data: full name, periods of previous employment, performance during previous employment.
  • From publicly accessible sources, such as Linkedin, etc., where we collect your full name, email, work history, and other data included on your profile.

  • Carry out background and reference checks, where applicable.
  • Communicate with you about the recruitment process.

The legal basis under EU law for processing your data is our legitimate interest to decide whether to appoint you to the role, since it would be beneficial to our business to appoint a suitable candidate to that role. We also need to process your personal data to decide whether to enter into an employment contract with you.

Having received your CV and covering letter and the results from any tests you took, we will then process that data to decide whether you meet the basic requirements to be shortlisted for the role. If you do, we will decide whether your application is suitable to invite you for an interview. If we decide to call you for an interview, we will use the data you provide to us at the interview to decide whether to offer you the role. If we decide to offer you the role, we may then take up references and/or any other check before confirming your appointment.

If you fail to provide personal data

If you fail to provide personal data when requested, which is necessary for us to consider your application (such as evidence of qualifications or work history), we may not be able to process your application further. For example, if we require references for this role and you fail to provide us with relevant details, we will not be able to take your application further.

 

HOW WE USE PARTICULARLY SENSITIVE PERSONAL DATA  

We will use your sensitive personal data only in so far as we are permitted by Law to do so :

  • We will use data about your disability status to consider whether we need to provide appropriate adjustments during the recruitment process, for example whether adjustments need to be made during a test or interview.
  • We will use data about your nationality or ethnicity, to assess whether a work permit and a visa will be necessary for the role.
     

AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING  

You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making.

 

DATA SHARING  

We will only share your personal data with third parties for the purposes of processing your application. All our third-party service providers are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal data in line with our policies and in compliance with applicable legal requirements. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need-to-know. They will only process your personal data on our specific instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality and compliance to the appropriate legal requirements. 

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

 

DATA RETENTION  

We will retain your personal data for a period of 3 years after your last application date. If you are unsuccessful we shall retain your personal data for 12 months or for a period of 3 years upon your explicit consent. We retain your personal data for that period so that we can show, in the event of a legal claim, that we have not discriminated against candidates on prohibited grounds and that we have conducted the recruitment exercise in a fair and transparent way. We further retain such personal data in case a similar role becomes vacant for which you will be a fitting candidate. After this period, we will securely destroy your personal data in accordance with our data retention policy.
