Information relevant to any request by you for adjustments to the recruitment process as a result of an underlying medical condition or disability. We use this information to enable us to carry out a fair, non-discriminatory recruitment process by considering/making reasonable adjustments to our process as appropriate. Our additional legal ground for using this information is that we need it to comply with a legal obligation/exercise a legal right in relation to employment – namely, the obligations not to discriminate, and to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate a disability – and such use is in line with our Data Protection Policy.

How do we collect your personal data?


7.1

You provide us with most of the personal data about you that we hold and use, for example in your written application, by completing any assessments and during any interviews.


7.2

Some of the personal data about you that we hold and use may come from external sources. For example, a recruitment agency provides us with a shortlist of candidates. If we offer you a role, we will carry out pre-employment checks such as taking up references from past employers or education providers. In some circumstances, we may ask the Home Office for information about your immigration status to verify your right to work in the UK.



8

Who do we share your personal data with?


8.1

Recruitment agencies
We may engage recruitment agencies to provide us with the details of suitable candidates for our available vacancies, to communicate with those candidates and to handle administration in connection with the recruitment process. If we have received your initial application details from a recruitment agency, we will share with them any of your personal data that is necessary to enable them to fulfil their functions for us.


Medical/occupational health professionals
We may share information relevant to any request by you for adjustments to the recruitment process as a result of an underlying medical condition or disability with medical/occupational health professionals to enable us to identify what, if any, adjustments are needed in the recruitment process and, if you are successful, once you start work. This information may also be used by the medical/occupational health professionals to carry out assessments required by health and safety legislation.


Legal/professional advisers
We may share any of your personal data that is relevant, where appropriate, with our legal and other professional advisers, in order to obtain legal or other professional advice about matters related to you or in the course of dealing with legal disputes with you or other Job Applicants.


Home Office
We may share your right to work documentation with the Home Office, where necessary, to enable us to verify your right to work in the UK.

Consequences of not providing personal data


9.1

We only ask you to provide personal data that we need to enable us to make a decision about whether or not to offer you a role.


9.2

If you do not provide particular information to us, then we will have to make a decision on whether or not to offer you a role without that information, which in some cases could result in us deciding not to recruit you.


9.3

If you do not provide us with names of referees or a reference when asked, we will not usually be able to offer you the role. In addition, some of the personal data you provide to us is required by law. For example, if you do not provide us with the documentation we need to check your right to work in the UK, then we cannot by law employ you.

If you choose not to provide us with personal data requested, we will tell you about the implications of any such decision at the relevant time.
