It is intended to provide you with details of how we comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and your rights under the regulation.

Data Handling

We shall hold the minimal amount of personal data required to make a recruitment decision and to contact you about that decision. This will normally include your name, contact details, employment history and academic qualifications.

Your information will be shared with internal and external members of the selection panel and stored only on our secure network server and Workable (our cloud Applicant Tracking System).

Candidate Sourcing

As part of our recruitment processes and candidate sourcing we may store your personal details that are publicly available on LinkedIn and other social media platforms. This applies equally whether you have applied for one of our current vacancies, submitted a speculative application or have not made an application directly but may have been identified by us as having the necessary skills for an upcoming position.

Retention and Protection of Data

Whether you have applied directly for an open position, submitted a speculative application or been sourced by us through LinkedIn or other channel, if you are unsuccessful at any stage of the recruitment process we may retain your data for a maximum of 6 months. Any of your personal data stored by us will then be erased.

If you have been informed that you may not be considered appropriate for a current or imminent position but may make a suitable candidate for a future position we shall retain your details for a period of up to 2 years.

obtain access to the personal data that we hold about you
