We share information we collect about you in the ways discussed below. We are not in the business of selling information about you to advertisers or other third parties.
Sharing information with hiring managers
Your information is shared within our recruitment team and relevant hiring managers, who will assess your application.
The only hiring managers who can see your information are the ones who are hiring for the role(s) you have applied for.
In the case of you being suitable for another role, your information will be shared with the hiring manager for that role.
Sharing information with third parties
In the case of your application being handled by a third-party recruitment agency, we will share feedback regarding your application with them to be passed onto you.
We only share the information during the application process.
If a candidate is hired, we will inform the recruitment agency so they can collect their fee from us.
When instructed, to fulfil our legal obligations, we will share your information with the third-party we are instructed to. For example, if you require a visa to work in the UK, we will need to share your information with the Home Office.
How we store and secure information we collect
Information storage and security
We use data hosting service providers in the EU to host the information we collect.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, stolen, altered, erased, disclosed, used or accessed in an unauthorised way. In addition, we limit access to your data to authorised and trained personnel.
We do not give your data to any third parties, other than communication with any recruitment agency that may have passed us your details in the first place.
While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that data during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others.
How long we keep information
All your information will be deleted within 1 year of your account being closed on our recruitment portal.
Any information you send us in relation to a job application will be placed on your account in the portal, and removed immediately from other sources (e.g. email applications). If you do not have an account, we will ask to create one for you.
In exceptional circumstances, where an account in the portal is not created, information will be kept for up to 2 years from the date of the application.
How to access and control your information
Under certain circumstances, you have rights available to you when it comes to your information. Below is a brief summary of those rights:
