Human resources recruitment privacy notice

This privacy notice gives details of what information we collect from you, what we do with it and who it might be shared with regards to our recruitment process.

What information do we collect from you?

The information we collect would be like your name and address. Sometimes we collect other information you may feel is sensitive to you like for example your ethnicity or health information.

Why do we collect this information?

This is to provide you with a recruitment process, which you have asked to take part in. You can tell us to stop using your information at any time, but you will be unable to continue with the recruitment process.

Who might we share this information with?

We will use OH Assist to deliver occupational health services for employees. You will be given a copy of their privacy policy if you are offered a contract of employment with us.

What do we do with this information?

We use it to assess your job application and your interview, if you are invited to one. We won't use it for any other purposes without your consent, or without telling you first.

Sometimes we have to give information to other authorities, organisations or people. This would be for the prevention or detection of crime, or for example because of legal matters. We don't need your consent to do this, but if we can, we'll let you know if we've passed your information on.

How long do we keep this information for?

We will keep this information for 6 months if you are unsuccessful. If you are offered a contract it will be for as long as we need it. Once we no longer need it, we will keep it for a set period (a retention period) but we will not use it. When the retention period expires we will delete your information from our records.

How can I access the information you hold about me, find out further information on privacy rights, or raise a concern?
