We keep the personal information that we obtain about you during the recruitment process for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed. How long we keep your information will depend on whether your application is successful and you become employed by us, the nature of the information concerned and the purposes for which it is processed.
We will keep recruitment information (including interview notes) for no longer than is reasonable, taking into account the limitation periods for potential claims such as race or sex discrimination (as extended to take account of early conciliation), after which they will be destroyed. If there is a clear business reason for keeping recruitment records for longer than the recruitment period, we may do so but will first consider whether the records can be pseudonymised, and the longer period for which they will be kept.
If you are unsuccessful for a particular role your information will be stored for a certain period of time where you will be contacted throughout this period of time to consent to us keeping your information on our database, if you do not advise us you would like us to keep a hold of your information then it will be archived.
If your application is successful, we will keep only the recruitment information that is necessary in relation to your employment. For further information, see Data Protection Policy for Employees, Worker and Consultants.
