How we will use information about you

We will use the personal information we collect about you to:

  • Assess your skills, qualifications, and suitability for the role.
  • Determining the terms on which you work for us.
  • Carry out right to work, background and reference checks, where applicable.
  • Communicate with you about the recruitment process.
  • Keep records related to our hiring processes.
  • Comply with legal or regulatory requirements.

It is in our legitimate interests to decide whether to appoint you to the role since it would be beneficial to our business to appoint someone to that role.

We also need to process your personal information to decide whether you meet the basic requirements to be shortlisted for the role and if so, whether to enter into a contract of employment with you.

If you do meet the basic requirements, we will decide whether your application is strong enough to invite you for an interview. If we decide to call you for an interview, we will use the information you provide to us at the interview to decide whether to offer you the role. If we decide to offer you the role, we will then conduct reference, background, criminal and credit checks before confirming your appointment.

If you fail to provide personal information

If you fail to provide information when requested, which is necessary for us to consider your application, we will not be able to process your application successfully. For example, if we require a credit check or 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 sensitive personal information

We will use your sensitive personal information in the following ways:
  • We will use information 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 an interview or test (if applicable).
  • We will use information about your race, national or ethnic origin, religious, philosophical or moral beliefs, or your sexual life or sexual orientation, to ensure meaningful equal opportunity monitoring and reporting. We will only receive this information if volunteered by you and in an anonymous format.
  • We will collect and process information about your criminal convictions in order to satisfy ourselves that there is nothing in your criminal convictions history which makes you unsuitable for the role. We are contractually required to carry out criminal records checks by our clients for those candidates who are applying for a role that requires access to highly confidential client information and therefore a high degree of trust and integrity. Where this applies, we will seek a basic disclosure of your criminal records history.
  • We have in place an appropriate policy document and safeguards which we are required by law to maintain when processing such data.

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 information with the following third parties for the purposes of processing your application and as part of our recruitment process:

All of our third-party service providers and other entities in the group are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in line with our policies.

Any sharing of personal information with third parties is governed by a data sharing agreement, ensuring they: (a) do not use your personal information for their own purposes; (b) take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information; (c) are only permitted to process your personal information for specific purposes and in accordance with our instructions. Furthermore, we require all third-party service providers to go through our due diligence process where we assess the suitability of their security, data and legal frameworks.

Transferring information outside of your home jurisdiction

We may transfer the personal information we collect about you inside and outside of your home jurisdiction to the USA, UK, EU and Singapore where our group of companies and third-party suppliers are located in order to assess your suitability for the role.

There are adequacy regulations in place in respect of some of the countries listed. This means that when we transfer your data from, for example, the UK to the EU and vice versa, such transfer is deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for your personal information.

For countries where adequacy regulations are not in place, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to such transfer by putting in place appropriate measures to ensure that your personal information is treated by those third parties in a way that is consistent with, and which respects the laws on data protection:

Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved for use in your home jurisdiction which give personal information the same protection it has in your home jurisdiction.

We will conduct transfer risk assessments and data protection impact assessments where applicable to identify and minimise any risks associated with such third-party processing and transferring any personal information.

Please contact us at if you want further information on the specific mechanisms used by us when transferring your personal information out of your home jurisdiction.

Data security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need-to-know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

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 information for a period of 6 months after we have communicated to you our decision about whether to appoint you to the role. We retain your personal information 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 also retain information for that period in the event that a suitable job opportunity arises that we may wish to consider you for with your consent.

After this period, we will securely destroy your personal information in accordance with our data retention policy.

In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal information (so that it can
no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which
case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you
